Notice: This is the first air gun field target match for Rockville Fish & Game club. They are testing the waters to see if air gun field target is popular enough to warrant a regular event at the club.
BEST OF LUCKS, Leo!
Commendable effort to expand FT. While many places struggle to integrate non-essential activities among covid19 challenges, this a hopeful sign. No doubt some of the likely shooters may hesitate attending depending on viral status...including me. Really hoping to be there but who knows.
