On behalf of the Brazos River Gun and Archery Club, I wanted to wish a Happy 80th Birthday to Ed Yowell. He was just elected to an unprecedented 15th term as the Club’s Range Officer. He is a prominent face of the Club and he keeps the Range in line and operating smoothly.
Take time to congratulate him on his re-election to the Range Officer position and wish him a Happy 80th Birthday.

The results are in from Saturday’s rifle Shooting Event. 6 Members competed in the shoot which featured 3 stages.
The first stage which was timed, the second stage which included steel and clay targets, and the third stage which included playing cards to make a poker hand.
The Pistol Match this past Saturday, had 9 competitors. The match which consisted of 3 rounds began with stationary clay and steel knock-down targets for the first 2 rounds.
The 3rd round was a lot more challenging with each participant choosing an odd-ball target and the shooting distance to the target. Eric Felt, the Club’s Event Coordinator, designed the shoot with elements similar to the Shooting Gallery competition seen in “Top Shot”.
Odd ball targets that were chosen included soda bottles filled with colored water, Small bottles filled with jelly beans or paintballs, tennis balls, balloons, pencils and even bottle caps. It was fun and challenging.
Below are the 9 competitors and their final scores:
1st – Darrin Olsovsky 20 points – .45 $50 Academy Gift Card / Box of Ammo
2nd – Doyle Fain 16 points – .45 $30 Academy Gift Card / Box of Ammo
3rd – Bob Ellis 15 points – .38 Super $29 Academy Gift Card / Box of Ammo
4th – Larry Waddle 11 points – 9mm Box of Ammo
5th – Terri Blevins 10 points – .45
6th – Rob Tyner 9 points – .45
7th – Ty Fain 8 points – .45
8th – Jeff Geer 7 points – 9mm
9th – Kevin Geer 6 points – 9mm
Eric is thinking of the next shoot being a rifle shoot, watch our site to find out details as they are available

Comments Off on 4H Shooting Sports to hold County Match at BRGAC Range
On Sunday, February 16th the Palo Pinto / Santo 4H Shooting Sports started their Spring 2014 season practice on the BRGAC Range. In the summer of 2013, the 4H Shooting Team lost its’ range and was in need of a range to practice for their County and District competition. After interviewing the Shooting Team Leadership and reviewing the group’s business plan, an agreement was made between BRGAC and the 4H Shooting Sports to use the area of the Cowboy Action range just south of the skeet field.
The 4H Shooting Sports group is well organized and very professional in their approach to the shooting sports and shooting disciplines they embrace. The young people involved with the team receive invaluable instruction and practice while participating.
Members should be aware of the BRGAC’s commitment to the shooting team. And ask that any members be aware of the their scheduled shooting dates and times. They will only practice on Sunday afternoons between 1pm and 6pm. The one exception will be their County competition which is scheduled for Saturday, April 19th. (more details on that day later). Below is their scheduled practice dates. If any Member has questions, they may be directed to the BRGAC President, Terri Blevins (940) 452-0331.
