Jr. Rifle Program Updates for Sat., 8/17/2019

posted Aug 16, 2019, 6:31 PM by SCVRC Juniors

Eleanor Earns the NRA Distinguished Expert Award -- Congratulations!

In July, Eleanor earned the
Distinguished Expert rating in 4-position rifle.

Distinguished Expert is the highest possible skill rating in the NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program and reflects a skill level and commitment that most shooters will never match.

Eleanor has been one of our top match shooters for several years and we always enjoy her unique sense of humor on the range -- even all the teasing she gives us coaches.

Congratulations Eleanor on your impressive accomplishment!


Important Junior Program Update -- 
SJMFR Program Closing on 9/29/2019
The City of San Jose has decided to close the San Jose Municipal Firing Range (SJMFR) city park in December and provide the land to the ice arena operating company for a parking lot expansion, planned for 2020.

The Junior Rifle Safety and Marksmanship will continue until the end of September at the San Jose Municipal Firing Range.

By mid-September, we'll have an update to all our members and supporters on the future of the Santa Clara Valley Rifle Club (SCVRC) junior program.


No Juniors Program on Saturday, August 31 -- Range Open to Juniors Again on Saturday, September 7th
Another program will be using the range for the entire weekend of August 31 and September 1.  The range will be open again to the Junior Program on the following Saturday, September 7th.
