THE FINE PRINT: 

The Minneapolis Rifle Club Winter High Power League will start December 23, 2017 and we will shoot every other Saturday through March 31, 2018 (9 Saturdays). League fees are $70.00 for the season on the first day or $10.00 each time ($80.00 total).

*To make life easier, please pay the TOTAL league fee of $80.00.

 

We will shoot the NRA National Match Course, 10 offhand, 10 Rapid Sitting, 10 Rapid Prone and 20 Slow Fire Prone with sighters at each position (58 rounds).  If you want EIC practice you get no sighters.  All targets scoring is modified for the electronic targets at 300 meters and the target on the computer monitor will look like the SR, SR-3 or MR-63.  For Prone prone shooters the MR-63 and F-Class shooters we will let you shoot the International target - 50 rounds plus sighters (challenge wise, it’s very similar to the F-Class target).

Final Note: F-Class Shooters are very hard on the center of the electronic targets.  You will be asked for an additional one-time $10.00 donation for target repair supplies.

 

Please Note: if the temperature is below Minus 15 degrees F., STAY HOME!

If there is interest this year, we will again have a "pot luck" lunch at the range.

JOIN US!

 

You are cordially invited to join the Palma Alliance. Founded in 2017, we are a coalition of prone shooters who have banded together to make prone shooting great again. The Alliance is made up of brave men and women who have sworn a solemn blood oath to shoot only Palma rifles with iron sights and 155-grain bullets (sub-82gr bullets for .223) for Long Range and Mid Range Prone matches – the way God intended it. As the 2019 World Long Range Championship approaches, we feel that this strategy will help prepare prone shooters for the unique challenges associated with shooting this platform in international competition.

Membership in this prestigious club is free, and all members will receive limited edition commemorative “PALMA ALLIANCE” stickers to proudly display on their rifles. In addition to the free sticker, all member names will be forever etched in granite on the hallowed walls of Valhalla. The names of these heroes will ring out through all eternity.

Do you have what it takes?
 

CLICK HERE for membership info and sign-up.

Polos and T-shirts are now available!

 *On Saturday morning, August 26th, Palma Alliance Founding Father and Chief Justice Steve Knutson, along with original member #4 Jay Johnson both renounced their memberships to the Alliance in order to pursue happiness with 6mm rifles and scopes. While this was a dark day in Alliance history, we will carry on with our remaining 50 members and continue to walk the straight path.
 

Farewell brothers, you are dead to us.

Erik Rhode – President, 2017 Palma Alliance
