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 June 2019

            On June 9th, Burbank Muzzleloaders held a silhouette match with chickens, pigs, turkeys, and rams at 50, 70, 80, and 100 yards, respectively. Overall, shooters connected with their rifles quite well that day, and there was plenty of clanging. Lee Bowman came in first with a score of 12, John Clevenger second with 11, and Tom Trevor and Eric Blakely were tied for third with 10. The Southern California heat also flexed its muscles for the first time of the year that day, finally putting to an end our unseasonably cool and comfortable spring. Spoiled we all became, but now we all must go back to tolerating that sun-like man!

            Our next event will be a work party scheduled for Sunday, June 23rd early in the a.m. We’ve got the typical range maintenance scheduled but have planned a significant task- scraping off the old roofing over the box stove so that the wood can dry out in order to have reroofing done at a later date. Everyone will be able to contribute to range maintenance in diverse capacities, so come one, come all to this very necessary event!

            Let us not forget that June has five Sundays, and that means a trail-walk match. Burbank Muzzleloaders will be hosting such a match on June 30th. Additionally, recall that Tom Trevor has graciously donated four Morgan silver dollars and one Peace 1921 dollar to be awarded on December 29th, 2019 to the winner of the highest cumulative score of the four walkthroughs 2019 has in its calendar. Even if you missed the first walkthrough of 2019, come to the second, for the prize could really be anybody’s win.

            Also, on July 7th, Burbank Muzzleloaders will host its annual 4th of July picnic. Show your patriotism and bring a modest dish to contribute. Email Tom Trevor for suggestions on what to bring if you’d like some help deciding. Also, get into the Revolutionary War spirit and bring out your flintlock! John Clevenger always has a special shoot planned for the day. Get ready to split playing cards and break popsicle sticks, among some of the challenges, just before we all enjoy our potluck. Even if you’re not up to the match, we’d love to have you join us for the picnic as we recognize the marvel this amazing experiment of a county is!

            And the events aren’t over! The following week, on July 14th, Burbank Muzzleloaders will have its annual bench-rest match also hosted by John Clevenger. Put your cartridge rifles to the test and see how small of a group you can shoot at 200 and 100 yards. Muzzleloading rifles will shoot at 100 and 50 yards. We look forward to this match, John!

            As you can see, our calendar is full, so make sure to come on out and say hello if we haven’t seen you in a while. Well, that’s all, for now, folks, so don’t forget about Burbank Muzzleloaders, the place to shoot!
