The 2011 Interclub .22 Bench Rest season got a blustery start April 17, at MSC with one of the windiest days seen at a .22 match there. The wind did not keep the shooters from having a good time and putting up some good scores.

Fourth Annual Scarawan Cup - Photos

The Fourth annual Scarawan Cup was hosted by the Vly Sportsmen's Club this year and by the number of smiling faces was a great success. Vly had 11 shooters and a handful of spectators cheering them on with Marbletown bringing 20 shooters plus our own fans. A few early bird members of MSC got the targets set up early but a few things still needed to be sorted out. While the crowd stood around trying to stay warm, figure out "what's going on" and people were shouting for last years chairmen Paul Brasky, Joe Montalbano of Marbletown stepped up and took charge declaring "safety first" and that he and someone from Vly would be the Scorers. Chris Gibbons of Vly was given the task of keeping Joe honest.

Meanwhile members of the Vly club were busy preparing hot coffee for anyone down at the range and getting lunch prepared for when the tournament was over. Chris snuck away at a critical time but was found with hot dog in hand (and mouth) in time to get the rules approved. Once the shooting started we had to make a few adjustments to make a clear shooting area but we kept things safe and on track. The 31 shooters shot 2 relays when a vote was called for to see if the traditional third relay would be shot or if the next relay would be the finals. Despite a dozen or so shooters wanting to have the third relay it was clear the majority was eager to let the best 5 of each club from the first 2 relays shoot for the cup.

MSC shot 215 1x and Vly shot 212 0x allowing the cup to stay at Marbletown for another year. Overall the scores were down a bit from last year but we still had some real fine shooting. During the relays we had 2 MSC members score an 89, Dave M. and Tom K., Tom also having 2x. Vly had several members shoot 84 Tom C. 1x, Mike L. 1x, and Eric F. The best single relay score was Jeff Budik's 48 on the second relay. Next year it will be MSC turn to host, let's hope the weather is good.
