New Operations Officer selected!

James R. "Jim" Therrell Jr. has been selected as the new Operations Officer of the Quantico Shooting Club, Inc. Jim is a competitive shooter of long standing, having participated in NRA and CMP high-power service rifle competitions for sixteen seasons at QSC and elsewhere, attending the Nationals four times. Jim is an NRA Life Member, and a past member of the VSSA and VFEMI.

Jim's professional background is as a satellite systems engineer. Earlier in his career, Jim worked for more than a decade as an engineer in the custom equipment shop of the National Geographic Society where he invented the "CritterCam," among many other technical innovations. His project management skills were honed over the past dozen years as he has had increasing responsibilities for designing, building, operating and supporting ground stations for communications satellites. Jim is looking to begin a new chapter in his life and career, and the Board of Directors is delighted that he has chosen to take on the challenge of managing the day-to-day operations of our own "ground station" on the grounds of the Quantico Marine Corp Base.

As Jim settles in, you will see him in the Clubhouse, at matches, and meetings on a regular basis. Our acting Operations Officer, Russell Jones, has graciously agreed to work with Jim to establish a seamless transition. In coming weeks, Clubhouse office hours will be adjusted to meet the needs of the Club members and guests. The next time you are on the Base, please be sure to greet Jim as a welcome new member of our team.

EASTERN ARMED FORCES MEMORIAL MATCH
MAY 27 – 29, 2011
SPONSORED BY
THE QUANTICO SHOOTING CLUB
HELD ABOARD MCB QUANTICO

 

In 2009, following the Marine Corps Rifle Team’s participation in the second annual Armed Forces Memorial Match in Byers, Colorado, a number of Marines decided to volunteer their personal time in the development of a similar match to be held on the East Coast.  They collaborated with the Remembering the Brave Foundation, the Quantico Shooting Club, M-1s for Vets, the NRA, and a number of other wonderful organizations to develop a plan that has rapidly made this one of the most popular matches in the country.  We are certain that participation in this year’s match will continue to be most memorable.  Each year, the program will honor the memories of 14 Military Service Members who made the ultimate sacrifice in their service to their country and for the ideals of freedom and justice around the world.  The magnificent trophies will bear the names and images of the service members honored each year and the winners of each match will be permanently engraved on the trophies.  This match is a registered Match with the NRA, who has graciously waived their standard fees.  Match fees are indicated in the match bulletin . Pre-registation is strongly encouraged for both the match and pullers (where applicable for an additional fee).  Click here to download the QSC INDV-TEAM PREREGISTRATION FORM fill-out and return to QSC as directed. Please download and read the letter from Colonel Steve Beck who tells the story of Remembering the Brave.

This event is not an official event of, and it is not endorsed or sponsored by the Federal Government, Department of Defense, United States Marine Corps, Marine Corps Base, Quantico, VA or Weapons Training Battalion.

USPSC Pistol Clinic - new to many and a success for all!

Quantico Shooting Club recently held an introductory clinic for USPSC competition. The didactic was informative, lots of questions, terrific hand-outs, standing room only in the WTBn classroom and much thanks to Jeff Hoge who condensed over 13 hours of classroom material down to 3!

Those in attendance shot two different stages which gave those new to this sport a taste for what is important in safety and effectiveness. We all look forward to monthly USPSC competitions which will start in June. These will occur on the second Sunday of each month so check the calendar often for updates, etc.

Thanks go out to Lew Walker and Jeff Salzberg for a good, and very safe day! And thanks to Jeff Hoge for the class. Also, thanks to the RO's and RSO's that helped!
