INDOOR .22LR Grocery Matches
Grocery matches are indoor .22 rimfire rifle matches fired at 50 ft. Match fee is $10 for 20 rounds. There are 12 prizes per round. Cake and meat "bonus rounds" are 50 cents per target.

The club will open at 6 PM for practice and the match begins at 7 PM. Matches are held every Saturday night, starting January 3rd 2015 and continuing until the last Saturday of March 2015.

We will be doing a season prize again for the 2015 season. This year's prize is a case of CCI Standard Velocity .22LR ammo. Each week, one of the prize levels will be tickets for the drawing. There will be 20 tickets each week. The ticket prize "slot" will be different each week, from 1st place on the board down to 12th place.

If you have any questions, you can ask here, or e-mail them to
The first two weeks have gone well. Remember, these matches are held every Saturday night, ending on the last Saturday of March.

I'm including a picture of one of the targets used. It was a lucky shot that got me a first place prize. There's also a quarter in the corner to help give an idea of size.

Well, the first month is in the books, but we still have two months left in the season. Things have been going well.

A couple weeks ago, I noticed a post (copied below) on Facebook about our local shelter being in need of donations. I called and talked with them, and they said while cash is their biggest need, they could also use donations of food. We have started putting out a box for competitors who wish to donate back part of their winnings. We will continue to collect through the remainder of the season. Anyone is welcome to stop by and make a donation, or contact the shelter and donate directly. The shelter's contact information is at the bottom of the post.

The Lewistown Shelter needs help! If we do not receive monetary funds, the shelter will close it's doors. Staff have been laid off and other staff are volunteering their time as long as they can to try to keep the shelter open as long as they can.
The shelter provides so many services. When a homeless individual comes into the shelter, they get a free place to stay. They do not have to pay any kind of rent, for their food or for any other bills. As one of the case workers, I try to get them set up with the organizations that can help them move forward. I try to encourage them and help them get back on their feet so they can improve their life and move on with confidence.
We have many different programs based at the shelter. We have the PATH program (a program that helps individuals with certain mental behaviors obtain and keep housing in numerous ways), PCAP (a program that works with low-income familes and Penelec to help lower monthly payments on their electric bill. This is the only local office to help people in the area), A transitional housing program (providing a place for people to get on their feet while paying a lower rent and utilities.) and our payee program (a program that budgets people's money who are on SSI/SSD so they have a place to live and their bills are paid).
We need monetary donations and we need them fast. I am begging anyone who reads this to donate something to the shelter to help us stay open and continue to help people. I was a resident there at the shelter not to many years ago. They helped me and my boy get on my feet and into our own apartment. The importance of having people who honestly want to help and treat you with respect at such a hard time in your life is invaluable.
Please call the shelter at 717-248-0102. There will be someone, Jill Pecht, who will be there today from 9am to 5pm today and 1pm to 4pm tomorrow to answer any questions you might have. Any amount you are able to give will help. This heartfelt plea has also been sent to The Sentinel and other papers in the area. Please share this on your page and give whatever you can so we can stay open! Thank you.
Money, check or money orders can be accepted!
