2012 Rim-Fire Rifle League (RRL)
Description: This league is an eight week league for shooters to try their skills at offhand standing rifle shooting at a 25 yard target in a relaxed atmosphere. Shooters are welcome to participate for the full league or only as many times as can make it. Shooters are not required to pay or commit to a full 8 week league. Shooters that can make it one time, all eight times, or anything in between are encouraged to come and to bring a friend.
