The Calgary Rifle and Pistol Club is pleased to invite you to our series of indoor Rifle matches starting in January 2017. The intent of these matches is to provide an opportunity for smallbore rifle shooters to participate in regularly scheduled competitions. The entry fees have been kept to an absolute minimum and therefore, there will be no prizes other than bragging rights.
The course of fire will be 2 X 60 shot matches fired from the prone position at 25m. The first match will be 60 shots with Iron Sights, and the second match will be 60 shots with Any Sights, meaning scopes may be used, or you may stick with iron sights – your choice.
Although these are prone matches, we will accommodate anyone wishing to shoot 3-Position.
PLEAE NOTE: As range space is limited to one relay, we would ask that you call or email to reserve a spot as we anticipate a good turnout this season.
For additional info or to reserve your position, contact Jeff at (403) 238-2651 or via email, email@example.com.

As you may have heard, the Shooting Federation of Canada Executive Committee has committed to fund its High Performance Junior Program. Members of the Junior Program represent some of the best Under-21 shooting talent that Canada has identified in the Olympic rifle, pistol and Shotgun events. The SFC’s commitment to our Junior athletes extends beyond facilitating access to international ISSF events. We will be funding training camps. Additionally, we will ensure that qualified coaches support our junior athletes at significant targeted events. To bring this program to light, we have expanded the number of staff working within the Junior High Performance Program. Patrick Haynes, VP of High Performance, plus Richard Lanning, National Junior Development Coach, will be setting the direction for the program. The following additional people will be taking on direct coaching roles:
Lisa and Dave have been working with the Junior HPP for a few years, most notably in Suhl, Germany, last year. Florin has taken on the challenge of working with the Senior Trap athletes, helping them prepare for the upcoming 2015 Pan American Games. He’ll be transitioning to his new role as we move through and past the Games.
Please congratulate our Junior Development Coaches: Richard, Dave, Lisa and Florin. Better yet: offer your support!
