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 October 2017

 

   Sunday October 9th was a really nice day for showing up and shooting at silhouettes. The weather was a sunny 75 degrees or so, with a light breeze. Lee bowman took first place followed by Sam Baseman, and Tom Trevor. Also, Lee and Tom both received pins for knocking down five chickens in a row. 

 

   The next match, will be a trail-walk, on the 29th of October. I believe we will be shooting from the “short” positions because of the fire danger. So bring out your favorite cartridge rifle or muzzleloader, (muzzleloaders get two extra shots) and test your rifleman skills along the trail!

 

   November’s match will be the annual Thanksgiving themed turkey shoot sponsored by Jannu Lorentson. It will be held on the 12th of the month, or the SECOND Sunday of November. It will be a muzzleloader match, with targets at various distances ranging from 100 to 25 yards. 

 

   As many of you may have noticed IF YOU’VE BEEN OUT TO THE RANGE LATELY, our attendance has been way down as of late. We’ve had some absences due to medical issues, and also work requirements. That’s understandable and unavoidable. The problem is that we are renting the range on a daily basis since the new owners took over, and much depends on the number of shooters that show up on Sundays and Wednesdays. So I would encourage you all to attend the range more often so that we may continue to operate in the black. Aside from that, we just like to see our friends more often. It’s more fun when more folks are there. And as always, guests are welcome.

 

     That’s it for now, so until next time, SEE YOU AT THE RANGE!
