RI: Conventional Prone Championship Results

by Joe Graf, pmdc staff

The 2010 RI combined Regional State Championship was hosted by Newport Rifle Club. Range safety improvements make this a challenging range. Twelve foot high steel plates line both sides of the range making the wind very difficult to read. This year’s match had light winds making it a little easier when compared to past years.

Firing a 1599-114X, Dan Holmes took the Regional Gold and a Perry Certificate. Just 5X’s behind Brian Jylkka’s 1599-109X was good for the Regional Silver. The targets for both competitors will be forwarded to the NRA. The current open & civilian record for the 1-day Conventional Prone Regional is 1599, which would make Dan and Brian co-holders of these records. Brian also broke the existing junior record of 1598.

The RI State Champions will receive a David Kettlety Memorial Cup. The open State Champion, Joe Graf, fired a 1598-118X. The junior State Champion, Danielle Makucevich, fired a 1584-88X. Complete match results can be downloaded here: 2010-ri-conv-prone-championship (Excel, 33KB)

On a side note, pronematch.com would like to extend best wishes to Distinguished shooter Kim Chrostowski who shot her last match as a RI resident. She will be moving to Oregon after her November wedding to Andrew Roland.

    Congratulations Dan. You’re on a roll. When are you going to start putting an MA after your name instead of an EX? I think it’s time. I also think you should publish your training program because it’s obviously working very well.

    dan must tell us the secret. I’ll be back from Me. soon, and would like to learn about the secret training or ammo.

    I found out his secret; hit the center of the bull each and every time. Not really a big secret. 😉
