This site is dedicated to all the members of the Burbank Muzzle Loaders club. There are members from when the club was located in the Saugus/Newhall area, to new members that have only known the Piru area. No matter how long or how short you have been a member, this is a site for you. Hopefully, it will bring in some new people who would like to know more about muzzle loading, and did not know where to ask questions or find a place to shoot close to them. This is a club full of wonderful and helpful men, and women!!

Burbank Muzzleloaders Newsletter 

December 2018 

Let us not forget that ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP DUES ARE DUE, so please get your $200 check made payable to BML to Tom Trevor at 11552 Swinton Ave. Granada Hills, CA  91344 by the first of the year if possible.

On December 9th, Burbank Muzzleloaders held its annual Christmas Shoot. Fifteen participants competed at 25 yards with round-ball rifles at 10 targets, three shots each. It was nice to be visited by members of other black powder groups that day, and we all caught up on the year’s events. Although different members were able to earn good scores at various times, Jannu Lorentson managed to earn 1st place on four separate occasions. Additionally, Lee Bowman and John Clevenger each scored 2nd place in four of the ten matches. Lee managed two 1st places and John one, so I guess that’s 2nd and 3rd place overall respectively. All in all, it was great day with picture perfect weather, nothing to blame poor shooting on but oneself!

However, this month’s excitement is not over! Don’t forget that December 2018 has five Sundays, so Burbank Muzzleloaders will be holding a trail-walk match on December 30th. Come one; come all and conclude the year by testing your endurance at 25 shots off-hand at various plates on the hill. Chatting it up with old friends and sharing New Year’s resolutions that you’ll never keep makes it all worth it. Additionally, just following the match, the Shooter of the Year for 2018 will be revealed!

            Lastly, don’t put your round-ball rifles away just yet; we’ve got Sam Baseman’s match on January 13th, 2019 with targets at 100, 50, and 25 yards. Well, that’s all for now, folks. 

Don’t forget about Burbank Muzzleloaders, the place to shoot!
