LOCATION: The range is located just outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. From I-64 take the 5th Street exit, number 120. Competitors need to proceed south 4.2 miles on Rt. 631 (Old Lynchburg Rd.) to Deerfield Lane. A sign for the range is on the right. The rifle range is the first right after entering the range gate (look for the signs).
PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN STAPLE GUN, SPOTTING SCOPE, GROUND CLOTH AND PEN OR PENCIL.
NOTES: As this match is popular the firing positions fill very quickly. I strongly urge that you arrive 1 hour early for either relay. A sign up sheet is used for positions on the second relay and will be strictly enforced. See the range officer on arrival to sign up. No name on sheet, no position on the line. Bring sufficient ammunition for the match. Recommendation is 80 rounds to cover sighting shots and potential alibi rounds. Food and drinks are not available at the range so come prepared. The firing line is covered and concrete floored however during rainy weather the line can be subject to wind blown rain and the range may have standing water so plan accordingly with ground cover for prone firing and proper foot wear. While new, inexperienced or junior shooters are more than welcome to compete with proper guidance it is preferred that they shoot on the second relay.
THEMES: In order to make the match more interesting we have different themes on the following months. Participation in the monthly theme is voluntary but encouraged and makes for a great change of pace!
May: Bolt Gun Match- Bring your favorite bolt action rifle
November: World War 2 Match- Bring your favorite WWII rifle
NEW FOR 2011: No changes to format, we are keeping the match the same as we have previously run.
!!! NOTICE to RRPC MEMBERS: The bench rest and the 300 yard ranges are CLOSED on match day from club opening until the last competitor clears the line. NO EXCEPTIONS!!! Rifle Match Director, Match Supervisor and/or Match RSO has total authority over the use of the Rifle Ranges.

LOL I read the course of fire a couple times before it dawned on me what was happening.
In normal across the course HP matches the 20 shots would be fired at 600 and not the standing stage.
Then it hit me. At 100 yards that would be silly, you dont have the wind and other conditions to worry about so 20 shots for the slow fire stage would be a waste. How ever at 100 yards off hand would be the most difficult, so why not shoot the 20 round string there.
I like that ideal. (though its too far to drive).

RRPC holds a good RCOF match. I earned my Garand there a few years ago.
Wind and mirage don't matter on our tiny range, but that 3/4" xring on the MR31 is really,really small.
Now if we can just get the berm fixed and reopen our 300yd range someday soon...
