Mpls. Rifle Club Smallbore Match Cancellation:

As of Sunday evening, April 2, 2018  there was still 8 inches of snow between the MRC shoot-house and the 50 yard line.  The snow will probably be melted but the range will still be a wet mess and not ready for a match.  As such, MRC is canceling the April 28, 2018 USA Shooting 3-P and Prone Smallbore & April 29, 2018 Prone Conventional Smallbore matches.  These matches will be rescheduled later in the season.
