New to forum, looking for NW PA / NE OH matches

Post by spacecoast on 5/14/2014, 1:36 pm

Hi Everyone -

I'm new here but a regular at The Firing Line.  I was told this would be a good place to look for a Bullseye match in Northwest Pa, where I will be spending some time this summer.  I'll be in the Meadville area, so anything from Erie down to I-80 or east of Cleveland might work for me. 

Thanks for any help.

It's a bullseye desert in that area. No matches anywhere.

In fact, I can't think of a single good bullseye shooter ever that's come from anywhere within a 100-mile radius of Youngstown, Ohio.

^^ That was a joke, by the way.

Trivia question: which number is greater?

* The number of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterbacks hailing from a 100-mile radius of Youngstown, Ohio
* The number of Camp Perry pistol champions hailing from the same 100-mile radius?

Given the proximity to Camp Perry, I figured as much, but didn't want to overstep my newbieness either...

By the way, with the help of a PM I got in touch with the director for a 2700 match in Greenville on June 7, so I'm all set.   Smile   Thanks for all the help.

Yeah, I thought some people from the area would step in shortly and tell me how full of s**t I was  Smile

There are matches in Canton (OH), Warren (OH), Beaver Falls (PA), Greenville (PA), Moraine (PA), New Castle (PA), Rochester (NY), Summerville (WV). At least there used to be when I lived in the area. Some of those might be indoor/winter only, and some might have gone by the wayside or replaced by others.

It's bullseye heaven.

John:

The range at Summersville is, unfortunately, no more; the property was sold by the club's lessor.  Matches near that location now are held at White Horse Range near Buckhannon, W.Va., and conducted by the Brassmasters club.  I hope you can get to a match there sometime.  We've missed you.

Hi Sandy,

Sorry to hear that. It's been a long time - I think the last time I shot in Summersville may have been '95 or '96?

I have a couple of funny anecdotes about that club, and the Regional and WV State Matches.

I remember being mad, when I first started shooting bullseye, because my mom wouldn't let me skip out of middle school to go shoot the Regional in Summersville. This was probably around year redacted. I was petulant for a few years in a row.

(That's right, shooters: when your mom says you can't skip school to go to a match, you can't go to the match)

Then I finally got to go to the Ramp Match, shortly before turning 16, and I remember joking with my dad that if I had been born a few weeks earlier, I could be driving the minivan. He still didn't let me drive.

The same year, I think, I remember being terrified of Sally Talbott, because she was a girl. I don't think I said a single word to her the entire weekend.

I mean, I'm a 16-year-old boy - what could I possibly have to say to a 16-year-old girl?

It's really a miracle that I survived to adulthood.

Did the original poster get information on Canton Matches?  That would probably be the biggest close match.  I think the club at Warren runs leagues during the week.  Indoor 50 ft range run by Dave Bowser.  Send me a message and I'll share contact info about Dave.

Thanks, I did get info about a June 7th match at Greenville and am all lined up to go to that.  I appreciate all the helpful folks on this forum.
