Rifle club wins season opener

T he Whitehall Rifle Club opened the 2013 season with a 976-948 road win over Fort Ann last Thursday.

Whitehall was led by Jason Pratt who shot a strong 198 including a 50 in the difficult standing position.

Randy Stumvoll was the “top gun” for Fort Ann with a 196.

John Hollister was close behind Pratt with a 196 and Pete Steffan who has overcome an off-season health issue (and a 9 prone), finished third with a very good 195.  He was followed by Louie Pratt’s 194 and Scott Fish’s 193.

Also shooting well for the locals were Jim McGinnis with a 192 and John Sharp with a 190.

This week, Whitehall, the defending champion, makes the long trek to Galway where they have been beaten the past couple of seasons. Each team has been able to win on its home range but luckily for Whitehall, someone else has been able to knock off Galway to give the Railroaders the league title.

Dick McMore, Doug Wilson and Jim Lafayette all missed the match with Fort Ann because of health issues, but hope to return to the line before the end of the season. Rick DeLorme is also expected to return to the team for the first time in a number of years.
