The BRPC High Power program will hold a long range wind reading class on Sunday, June 22nd, commencing at 08:00 in the target pit area.

The class will begin with an introduction to basic concepts and strategies on wind reading and wind affects in high power rifle shooting. It will continue with an experienced instructor shooting at 600 yards while explaining what he is observing regarding the wind conditions (mirage and wind flags) and the adjustments he is making before each shot. The students will be seated behind the instructor observing the mirage and wind to actually see what the instructor is describing before and after each of his shots. Each student will also be given an opportunity to read the wind and give his recommended wind corrections for the shooting instructor.

RSVP is required. If interested, RSVP to 6508M70@gmail.com.

The shooting is expected to be done mid-afternoon on Sunday, May 4, 2014 with clean up to follow immediately. Full use of the members‘ will be available on Monday, May 5, 2014.

It is anticipating to be about 15 to 20 campers for this event. The campers will start arriving on Friday afternoon and into the evening hours. Starting Friday afternoon, cables will be placed across the courtesy bay entrances and locked along with all of the gates with the exception of the main gate and the gate to the members‘ area. The sign on the gate will be dropped to advise everyone that the members‘ area is closed due to a special event.

The shooters that are camping will be asked to question anyone who comes up to shoot after the Eldorado Cowboys leave on Friday regarding their membership.
