SANNER'S LAKE SPORTSMEN'S CLUB



Military Woodstock

Restricted to wood stocked military rifles in use by various nations prior to 1961.  Iron sights and/or peeps ok.  No scopes or optics of any kind.  Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Winchester ’94, Thompsons, Garands and the ever-popular matchlock are all good candidates.  As long as it was military issue.  You wanna shoot your civil war musket and try to obscure the targets for the rest of us?  Fine, as long as you can load and shoot 10 times in 10 minutes!

And no, a 1996 Winchester model 70 is NOT allowed even though it has military roots with the Mauser….Match Directors have final say, and will loan you a rifle if needed.

Current Match Report

Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – July 2017 

A hot and hazy summer afternoon didn’t deter the diehard shooters who came out to the July Woodstock match at Sanners Lake, with two relays once again required to accommodate all the classic rifles.  The benches were wall-to-wall with an assortment of antique iron including an interesting Egyptian FN-49, a trifecta of classic Lee-Enfields, a Swiss K-31, an ‘03-A3, plus a more “modern” M1A.  And, of course, the standard gaggle of Garands.  As usual the action was as hot as the weather, with a tight race for top shot across the benches.  Chris M and his ‘03A3 turned in a blazing 100-3X to take the top spot in the individual category (and also set a new Woodstock Match SR-21 target single score record!), but that wasn’t enough to stop Ron Fe who kept putting rounds right down the middle to take the top prize in the combined score category with a killer 289-9X.   See the detailed results in the July Match Report.

Congrats to all the shooters for bringing the heat in the heat!  Next match is on 17 August, see you there...
