Nicholle Benedict wins the R. K. Moore 100 Shot Standing Match


On April 6, 2014, thirteen junior and not so junior shooters took to the range to compete in the annual R. K. Moore 100 Shot Standing Match at the Frazier Simplex Rifle Club. Competitors had as much time as they wanted to shoot 10 targets, 10 shots each.

Junior shooter Nicholle Benedict took overall first place, followed by her father, Tom Benedict placing second and Morgan Duerr taking third.

Nicholle Benedict (Jr)
2nd place

High Target
Nicholle Benedict - tie broken on 10th bull (10.5 for Nicholle and 10.0 for Morgan Duerr, both shooting a 100 on a target)

If there was an iron man/woman contest based on the last target score (because that is a lot of shooting in the standing position) Nicholle would be crowned iron woman with a 99 on her last target.

In the King Match, a 10 shot unlimited re-entry match, Tom Benedict won with a 99 and Nicholle taking second with a 98 and Jim Husk taking third with a 97.

PA Junior Intermediate Smallbore Rifle Camp

June 18—22, 2014
The Pennsylvania Rifle and Pistol Association and a grant from Friends of the NRA will support the state wide, 3 position summer camp program.  This camp is intended for intermediate level junior shooters, who have shooting experience and would like to grow as a marksman.  The facilities of Indiana University of Pennsylvania will be used for housing and dining and the indoor rifle range is located at the Indiana County Fairgrounds.  The camp capacity  is 20 junior shooters, ages 13 to 17 and will be held June 18 – 22, 2014.  All shooting is with .22 cal. target rifles, on a 50’ indoor rifle range.

A variety of shooting exercises and events make up the program. The SCATT system is used to analyze the natural point of aim of a shooter so proper alterations to positions can be made.  The goal of this camp is to expand and advance the shooting levels of the junior shooters attending.  We encourage junior shooters who are interested it participating and competing in higher levels of competition to attend.  In addition to the coaching from our volunteer staff, juniors have the opportunity to meet others with similar interests and abilities. 

Camp registration fee is $200. The fee, along with an NRA Foundation Grant and support from the Penna. Rifle & Pistol Association, provides the campers with dormitory rooms, meals, transportation on campus, and related marksmanship materials.  All applications will be reviewed and 20 shooters will be selected.  Final deadline for submission of applications is March 15, 2014.  Please call or email Julie Vavreck to receive an application at 814-602-5889 or pajr.rifle@gmail.com

Gold Medal won at NRA 4P Junior Sectional at Alexandria Sportsmen Club

Two of Frazier Simplex top junior shooters went to compete in the NRA 4P Junior Sectionals at Alexandria Sportsmen Club the weekend of February 8 & 9, 2014. It is a rare treat to shoot at a 4P tournament because the emphasis has been more toward 3P small bore and International Air Rifle shooting, which both are Collegiate and Olympic sports.
This year, Matt Lovre took 2nd place in the Intermediate Junior Class while shooting a cumulative score of 389 - 25x's. Ariana Grabowski took the overall Gold Medal (for the second year in a row) with a cumulative score of 397 - 32x's. Ariana's original small bore coach, Terry Lightner was present at the match and is shown here with Ariana before the match began.

Thanks to the Alexandria Sportsmen Club for putting this annual event on. And thank you Terry for coaching Ariana in those first few years. He always said that he expects her to be All American someday. That someday isn't that far away now that she will be going off to college in the fall.
