This year's PAARAshoot wll be held at the Santa Clara County Field Sports Park on Sunday, July 31, 2011. It will be a joint firearms shooting event, sponsored by PAARA and the Santa Clara Valley Rifle Club (SCVRC). The event was started by the late Elaine "Trish" Gibbons, WA6UBE, and her partner Carla Satra, who have been volunteer rangemasters at the South County Field Sports Park in San Jose for many years.
Through their good offices, we have been granted the use, without charge, of the 200 yard rifle range, one of only two 200 yard ranges in the Bay Area. We have the range to ourselves for the entire day.
Setup begins around 8:30 or so, so if you'd like to help, please come first thing. We shoot until 3:30 when we begin cleanup/packup, so we can be off the range by 4:00.
All are encouraged to bring a little extra .22 ammo, and any interesting or unusual firearms they may have to show. Lunch is potluck, so bring your favorite grille-able items and sides to share. There is a fair amount of shade there, but it still gets hot. Bring plenty of cold drinks.
In addition to the treat of getting to shoot on a 200 yard range, it's always a fun gathering. Come out to do something a little different with your radio friends. You'll have a BLAST!
