Texas Silhouette Calendar

Post by acorneau » Fri Aug 24, 2018 6:54 am

Howdy folks,

Sorry for the state-specific post but for those of us in and around Texas I've created a Google calendar with all the silhouette matches for the state. (Well, all the ones I could find so far.) I'll also include larger state/regional matches for those states near Texas (Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico) as the dates are announced.

https://tinyurl.com/y7nagatc

I'm trying to include a contact name/phone/email and basic match schedule (register time, start time, etc) for each listing. If anyone sees info that's incorrect and/or missing please let me know the correct info so I can make those changes.

Thanks!
Allen Corneau

Thanks! I'm in Austin and am going to try to work with Dave Phillips to make sure that the next state smallbore match gets posted online, etc. earlier rather than later. But, those dates at least the next couple of months look correct for the Austin, New Braunfels, and Coolidge matches. Coolidge/HOTSA may not have November - January/February matches as I think that they close for deer season.

Thanks for your work.

Tell me if I have this right...

Dallas Pistol Club in Carrolton, smallbore lever-action on the 4th Saturday. Any idea about times and a contact person? Neither is listed on their website.

Grand Prairie Gun Club in Grand Prairie, big bore lever-action on the 3rd Saturday. Times and contact person? They also list a smallbore silhouette match on the 4th Saturday in their 2017 club newsletter. Is that still valid? Again, their website calendar is not helpful.

Thanks.

Al,
Yes they are not really good at DPC except for action shooting. The DPC match contact is Kimbal Markwardt kimbalm@gmail.com 214-202-8993. The GPGC big bore is the same.
The only smallbore silhouette match they hold is a "modified" any any on reduced targets out to 50 y. Hope I have given all the answers, if not no prob here, just let me know
Thanks
K

Thanks for all the info, I really appreciate it.

I believe I have made the right changes to show the correct info but let me know if you see anything else askew.

Just added a new match for the Pharr Rifle and Gun Club (PRGC) down in the Rio Grand Valley. They're just getting things going so they only have swingers at the moment. I would think with a gun club named after him, Mark Pharr would support his club a little better with some real knock-down targets. :))

Their Facebook page is "RGV Silhouette" if anyone is down that way.

ShootingStar here - aka Greg Chandler
I'll be glad to supply him or the range all the knock-down targets they want! I won't say anymore, or this might be needed to move to Marketplace - lol

Thanks for the Range/Match info!

Happy 2019 everyone!

Just a note to say that dates for two of the big Louisiana matches have been added to the calendar...

- Shamrock Silhouette Shootout Air Rifle match is March 16-17 (St. Patrick's Day weekend).
- Louisiana Smallbore and Air Rifle Silhouette match is May 4-5.

If you notice any club listings that are incorrect or need to be updated for the new year please let me know directly and I'll get it fixed up.

Good shooting everyone!
Allen Corneau
