We are once again shooting high power at SRC. If you have an interest in shooting service or match rifle across the course or learning about and shooting F class; get in touch with our high power chairman Dusty Mcquary at email@example.com.
Welcome to SRC Highpower
I'd like to take the opportunity to encourage all of you to consider trying High Power shooting for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it will make you a better shooter both at the range and in the sporting field. The basic elements of sight alignment, trigger control, and position cross over into all shooting skills. With time you will become more competent and capable with your firearms. Practice and competition can include young and old, men and women shooting side by side. The sport itself can be a lifetime activity from both a social and competitive sense. Please feel free to contact me via email if you have questions, or come visit a practice and watch what goes on. Our practice and match times are listed on the Outdoor calendar. Hope to see you all.
What is High Power Competition?
This is probably the most frequently asked question in my email inbox or from people I speak with. In short, it can be described as position shooting with center fire rifles for score. In reality there are multiple disciplines that fall under the general umbrella of "High Power Competition". Here at Spokane Rifle Club we provide sanctioned matches for F-Class, Across the Course, and CMP vintage military rifles. Rather than attempt to describe the differences I will suggest that the following links do a good job of describing the sport. I encourage you to take a minute to look them over.

Plans and Ideas for 2013:
With an eye toward continuous improvement for our program, the following represents some of the direction for the 2013 shooting season.
1. More help for F-Class. Randell Vansant will be taking on some of the responsibilities for directing the F-Class program Please welcome him, but most importantly, help him when you can!
2. Establish a Club High Power trophy to recognize our top shooters now and in the future.
3. Many folks have indicated that cash prizes at some of the matches would be fun. Done.
4. Our plastic target backing is tough, but it warps badly in the summer heat and can be difficult to adhere targets to. We are looking into cardboard backing like many other ranges use.
5. We will be holding a state championship match again at SRC.
6. We are investigating a hosting web site for posting high resolution pictures of our matches/practices/activities
7. Another charity CMP vintage match. We will also continue with another afternoon CMP match.

High Power Match results
Our first F Class match of the season provided great weather conditions, and a strong start for upcoming matches. A total of 17 shooters, including some out of town competitors, got up early to compete and have fun. The wind was not heavy, but was just confusing enough to get your attention. Ken Freund took top honors with a score of 578-15X. Jim Konzal, Roger McRoberts, and new F Class shooter Dean Brown had strong showings as well.
On Sunday April 28th, our club hosted the East District Championship State Match. We had competitors from both Washington and Idaho participating for the 6 state leg points. The conditions were unusually windy, making for challenging shooting at all stages. Not surprisingly Tri-Cities shooter John Julian prevailed over the wind to claim the leg points while the NRA portion of the match was taken by our own James Patterson. Congratulations to both of them for excellent shooting. The rest of us had a good and safe time too. I'd like to thank all the people who helped and volunteered before, during, and after the match, and thanks to the club for supporting such an important shooting event. The official results of the leg match should be posted on the WSRPA web site soon. As always, I encourage anyone interested in High Power shooting to contact me via email or at the club.
