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!!

We were lucky this winter rainy season to finally shoot our Christmas shoot Sunday, January 8th. Between rain storms.

 

It took some tractor work by the range staff to make the road passable for other than four-wheel drive vehicles.

 

Steve Whitt took high money for the day followed by Jannu Lorentzen , John Clevenger . The guys from Smokey Valley Muzzleloaders did very $ well led by Richard Anderson and Lenard Smith.

 

Dick Ware had some bad luck walking his neighbor's dog and had to shoot with some broken fingers.

 

Nice to see Skip Stokes out and shot the entire match bit tired at the end but much improved.

 

John set a personal best by dry balling five times during the match.

 

The run for the coins was won by Steve Whitt with 103 total hits. This is the total hits during the year on our trail walks March match and fifth Sundays. Next year the match will be Run for the Remington revolver donated by Willie Tamura and Locking aluminum pistol case by Tom Trevor

 

Shooter of the year for 2022 was Lee bowman with 140 and followed by Steve Whitt

with136.

 

A big thanks to Lee Bowman for putting our 400 yard plate back in place on the hill as well as repairing the 385 plate mount damaged in the earlier rains.

 

 

Our next trail walk will be on January 29th weather permitting. We did once shoot in the rain by picking out targets on the hills and shooting from under the roof.

 

Followed by the February 12th silhouette match.

 

See you at the range Tom
