competitor after the matches.  The NRA allegedly archives this material, but I found it to be impossible for mere mortals to gain access to them).  Fortunately, and almost unbelievably, one man, Mike Venturino (say Hello Mike), has been to every one of these matches since the beginning, and he was kind enough to loan his copies of the results to me for this project. 

 

In a perfect world, I would prefer that these records would be in spreadsheet format or at least as text.   But, because these images were scanned, they are simply images of the pages that have been translated into PDF files.  If anyone is courageous enough to translate them into text or spreadsheets – More power to ya and I would be happy to post them on this website.  Meanwhile, you will need a PDF reader to view them.  You can safely and simply download FREE software for that purpose directly from Adobe Description: C:\Users\brent\Documents\Mouser2\Rifle\Matches\Raton\Raton 2008\IMG_0522.JPGHERE.

 

In the future, I will endeavor to add each year’s results as they become available, but I encourage everyone that has an interest in this game to download a copy of each year’s results, ensuring that these copies will always exist somewhere. Spread them around, give them away, and enjoy researching who was shooting what, and how well. 

 

PS. Say thanks to Mike for these records if you run across him at a match somewhere.  He is a big guy and hard to miss, and he doesn’t bite (usually).  I promise J

PPS.  Would not it be nice to have a similar set of records for Black Powder Target Rifle Creedmoor and Midrange shooting?  Does anybody have a set of the results? (Jonathan L., your phone is ringing…)

 

Here are the downloadable files. Just click on a year and it will unload into your browser.  Some of these files are large (5 Megs) so they can take a while to open so be patient.
