NHRC is now a sanctioned American Rimfire Association (ARA) Club! We hold sanctioned matches on the outdoor range on a monthly basis. All shooting participants must be registered with the ARA in order to shoot in a match. This is a great way to do some inexpensive shooting, teach your kids/grandkids about shooting and have a great time!
We are one of two clubs in the state of PA to offer ARA-sanctioned matches. Read on to find out more about the Association, matches, and how to participate or support the events. Here's a little more background:
ARA competitions are separated into two classes based mainly on the cost of the rifle. Factory class: any current production rifle with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, (MSRP), under $1,000.00; Unlimited Class: rifles with an MSRP over $1,000.00.
This video does a good job of explaining the basic concept of shooting ARA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NodvPs6LwKw
What does it take to shoot in these matches? Basically, have a 22 LR rifle and two hundred rounds of ammo, be over 7 years old and pay a match fee of $20.00. You can enter, your spouse, kids and grandkids. Of course, you also have to have a desire to have a good time and meet new people.
Questions? Please contact Match Directors Joe Senick, ((email@example.com, (570) 239-0072)) or Tim Honeywell, ((firstname.lastname@example.org, (570) 441-9511)) for more information. There will be an in person demo / question and answer get together at the club prior to our first match, which is scheduled for 7/2/2022 at 9:00 am.
We hope many of you will take this opportunity to enjoy our sport in a whole new way and possibly engage a younger generation of shooters at the same time!
