Sunday, April 23, 2017 - This is the eight black powder event of the 2016-17 season at the Niantic Sportsmens Club's range. It will be a trail walk with 10-15 targets, and this time, it will also be 'pistol friendly' for those who want more of a challenge. Registration ($10) starts at 9:00, with the first shots fired around 10:00; a campfire lunch will follow. Contacts are Matt Raymond and Jack Cummings: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org.
A good turnout on for the trailwalk - unfortunately, no photos this time.
Nine very brave souls showed up on a bitter cold and winday day. No pictures, but their ancestors would all be proud of them...
Fourteen shooters enjoyed a chilly day with some cold hands but a nice warm campfire lunch.A video will be (eventually) linked to the picture.
No photos available... It was a very cold, snowy and generally nasty day, but nine brave shooters came out to compete. There is no word on whether the blanket survived...

It was a great weekend day for all the shooters.
Finally! After two cancelations, the weather let up enough for thirteen hardy souls to come to this third shoot of the season. Congratulations to all the intrepid shooter.
Twenty one shooters appeared out of the mist as the snow and rain ceased, and as you can see, their powder was quite dry! Click on the picture to see a photo collage of the meet.
Lots of shooters on a fun course - what could be better for this great Spring day!! Click on the image to see a video of the event.
We had about 15 shooters show up for this first Spring-like Sunday. It was a little windy and cool, but everyone had a geat time! Click on the image to see a video of the event.
Kudos to the Black Powder Committee and the five participants who were able to show up just after a blizzard - in snow shoes, no less. This was a show of old-time perseverance!
Beautiful weather for the first Winter trail walk of 2014. John Stratton provided two photo-montages of the shoot. Click on the small images to see them.

This was a new type of shoot for the club, and it was a lot of fun. Not having to march up and down mosquito-infested hills was a big plus too! Click on the image for a video of the shoot.
The many shooters were challenged on this first day of really fine weather by the black powder trail crew's interesting and devilish targets. This was the last trailwalk of the season, but there will be other BP shoots on the club range. Click on the image on the left for a short video clip showing some of the targets.
The day was beautiful and sunny, for a change, and we had nine shooters, which was good considering this shoot was held only a week after the last one, and word may not have gotten out. If you click on the photo, you will be taken to a video of the event.
