Additional information can be obtained from the Board of Directors (bod@ncrgc.org). Send all position submissions to the Board of Directors, also note that nominations will be accepted at the Annual Meeting, but it would be nice to have ballots printed ahead of time.

Inaugural NRL22 Match a Success! 
Bryon Fessler, NRL22 Match Director
 
We are thrilled to have completed our first NRL22 match (June COF) with 25 shooters on our brand new (and almost complete) rifle range. Utilizing the crawl, walk and run approach, we used only the official monthly course of fire, standard target package and standard barricades for this first event. The precision rifle match was family friendly, fun and affordable (free but will cost $10 per shooter in the future). We already have a Ruger Precision Rimfire, Voodoo rifle case and other swag to give away at the end of the season. We appreciate all the feedback and will apply the lessons learned to future matches. Special thanks Jason, Kevin, Pat and Doug for stepping up to be squad leaders. Future matches will be held on the 4th Saturday of the month (9 am zero, 10 am start). Please email me with any questions and check out our webpage for scores and pictures (shooters please send me your pictures and we will get them up on the webpage).  https://www.ncrgc.org/shooting-disciplines/nrl22/

Match Directors Needed    
 
The Club needs several members to volunteer as Match Directors to run the following events:
 
- Rimfire Challenge. These events are governed by the Rimfire Challenge Shooting Association (RCSA). Shooters are required to compete using a rifle and handgun from any manufacturer in .22 Long Rifle caliber. The targets are steel plates that are set in a course of fire that is no less than 5 plates and no more than 7 plates. The Club has all the steel needed for these events.
Defensive Pistol. These events are most like the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) although scoring may vary. Both IDPA and USPSA targets and steel are used for these matches. The Club has nearly all the steel and targets needed for these events.
IDPA. These events are governing by the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA). Shooters focus on practical competitive shooting using defensive tactics with carry gear. The Club hasn’t had IDPA events in several years so an inventory of steel and targets would be needed.
NoCo TAC. The events include scenarios and drills designed to challenge your tactical skills and improve your shooting performance. The Club hasn’t had NoCo TAC for over a year so an inventory of steel and targets would be needed.
Rifle Events. Examples include silhouette, muzzleloader, etc.
 
As you can see, there are many opportunities to step up and run events that are open to Club members and the public. The other Match Directors are more than willing to answer questions and once appointed by the Board, you automatically become a Board member (Shooting Discipline Chair). Please contact the Board if you are interested in any of these positions (bod@ncrgc.org).
