Len Parracino Memorial
Military Rifle Shoot
Another year and another successful shoot, I am certain Len is looking down with a smile on his face. First off let me thank Tom Brancato for volunteering to oversee the shoot as RSO. And I want to extend a thanks and congratulations to the competitors, most of whom attempted all positions.
This was an Military, Iron Sight only slow-fire 40 round event with five sighters shooting the SR1 target at 100 yards. The shooter was required to shoot prone and off hand and could substitute off hand for sitting and kneeling positions. This year we had two matches and eleven competitors. Congratulations to Jesse Fisk and our Junior competitor Alex Ivanov. Both walked away with a trophy and reimbursement of the match fee. Below is a recap of the competitors, the rifle used and their scores.
|Jesse Fisk||M1 Garand||328||1X|
|Josh King||Mosin Nagant||286||2X|
|Jim Lano||M1 Garand||137||-|
|Joe Gala||M1 Garand||293||5X|
|Roger Benham||Enfield||No Score|

I would like to personally thank the participants, RSO's and volunteers who made the Military Shoot the success that it was today. I am proud to have worked with such a dedicated group that made this the organized and professional experience that it was. I look forward to growing this event into something that all of us, including Len, would be proud of.
With that said, from here on in we will call this event the Len Parracino Memorial Military Shoot. Len was a dedicated member of the club who ran the military shoot until his passing earlier this year. Thank you Len, we promise to do our best to make your Military Shoot the best it can be.
