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 May 14, 2018

April 28th was a “fifth Sunday trail-walk”. Eight shooters came out to trudge the canyon in
search of the glory that awaited the most skilled marksman of the day! That marksman was Lee
Bowman, with a score of 17 out of 25. Some of the lesser skilled marksmen in descending order
of skill, at least for that day were; Sam Baseman 14, Eric Blakeley 13, Tom Trevor 10, and Skip
Stokes 9.

Sunday the thirteenth of May was the second Sunday of the month, otherwise known as
Mother’s Day, also Musket match day. Eric Blakeley has assumed the mantle of “Sponsor of the
annual Richard Kane/Will Johnson” musket match. And a fine match it was! Targets were 100,
50, and 25 yards. There were some really great prizes as well. Powder, primers, caps, and other
costly items that we use every time we shoot. Plus, there were items donated by members
including some handmade leather goods from Jannu Lorentson. 1st place was taken by John
Clevenger. Runners up, were as follows; Sam Baseman, Lee Bowman, Eric Blakely, Tom Trevor,
Jannu Lorentson, and Joshua Smith. Fine job Eric! Nice prizes too.

Next month’s match will be silhouettes, on June 10th. Come out with your muzzleloader or
cartridge gun and see how many little steel animals you can knock down.
That’s it for this month, so until next time, See You At The Range!
