The Rod & Gun Club of New Bedford
University Range Day
After a typical New England winter, Sunday, April 13, 2003, was a
beautiful day to have 11 students from Brown University out to the Club
for a 'Range Day'. Three seniors and eight juniors were guests of the
Club and were introduced to the fun and enjoyment of shooting. The
afternoon started with a range briefing of safety rules and range rules.
There were three shooting positions staffed by club volunteers Scott Clarke,
Buzz DeMailly, Don Durante and Dave Bold who gave each student one-on-one
instruction and supervision. Students shot a variety of rifles such as a
.22lr bolt action and semi-autos, a .270 Win Mag bolt action, a 7.62x39mm
semi-auto and a 30'06 M1 Garand from WWII. These young men and women had
a great time AND were very good shots. They are a fine example for others.
It was a pleasure to have them at the club.
Special thanks to Don Adams and Carl Frederick for their donation of
firearms, ammo and range help.
The group of students included: Dave, Chris, Evan, Razvon,
Jordan, Christian, Will, Melissa, Julie, and more.
