If you plan to shoot this season, you must register by September 21, 2014.  You may pre-register, however, thereby avoiding having to attend the September 21, 2014 sign-ups and improving your chances of getting the shooting time you prefer, so long as your application and registration fee is mailed via US Postal Service and postmarked by Monday, September 15, 2014.  Please make sure your application is completely filled out, especially your preference for the day of week and time you want to shoot.  We’ll do our best to accommodate your preference but cannot guarantee it.  Make your check payable to “Frazier Jr. Club” in the amount of $85* and be sure to include it with your application. 
Your application and payment should be sent to:
Frazier Simplex Junior Rifle Club
c/o Scott Leckie
357 Woodside Drive
Washington, PA  15301

            Please keep in mind that if you don’t pre-register by mail, you need to show up at sign-ups on September 21, 2014 to ensure there is a place for you to shoot during the 2014-2015 season. 

            If you have any questions, please call Scott Leckie: 724.228.9849

The Frazier-Simplex 4-H members representing Pennsylvania at the 2014 4-H SHOOTING SPORTS INVITATIONAL held in Grand Island, Nebraska, last week brought home gold, silver and bronze medals for their efforts.  Five hundred and four 4-H members participated in the annual shooting event in nine disciplines, air rifle, air pistol, archery re-curve and compound bow, hunting skills, shotgun, muzzle-loading rifle, small-bore pistol and rifle.

Nine boys and girls from Pennsylvania participated in the air pistol, archery, air rifle and small-bore rifle events.  The local competitors from the Frazier-Simplex 4-H Rifle Club demonstrated their skills by winning medals in three different disciplines.

Morgan Duerr from Weirton Madonna High School started the winning ways by taking the Silver Medal in the Silhouette competition scoring 24 hits, the gold medal winner scored 29 hits. She continued demonstrating her shooting skills in CMP rapid and slow fire the second day with an 11th place and then placing 4th the third day in NRA 3 Position.  Her strong three day showing earned her the Silver Medal in the overall standings for the National event.  She missed the Gold Medal by .003 points.

In the small-bore rifle event, Thomas Welch from Mohawk High School, led the whole field with a 532 and won his first national Gold Medal.  Thomas also had a very strong showing in the CMP rapid and slow fire competitions.

Two Frazier Simplex seniors moving on to NCAA Collegiate shooting this fall

Two of those smiling faces frequently seen around the club on any night, and plenty of weekends, are joining ranks with the TCU Horned Frogs. Yes, that's right! Ariana and Nicholle (seen below) are both heading to the heat of Fort Worth, Texas in August to become athletes in one of the NCAA's most prestigious rifle teams in the country, the Texas Christian University (TCU) Horned Frogs.

Both girls will be joining the collegiate team that has put forth some of the best competitive rifle shooters in the world; most recently, Sarah Scherer, Erin Lorenzen, and Sarah Beard.

We wish them the best of luck in pursuit of their education and shooting goals, and we will miss having their smiling faces around the club and our homes.
