DON JAMES MEMORIAL
The Northwest Texas Field and Stream Association’s High Power Rifle Club is proud to announce the 24th Annual Don James Memorial High Power Rifle Match will be held Saturday July 2 at our 100 yard range, just off FM 171 on Emmert Road. This event was initiated for several reasons: to honor our nation, to honor our military and to honor the memory of Don James who was a founder of our rifle club, defender of the Second and First Amendments as well as a retired Texas National Guard Colonel.
The James Family joins in every year in this event with two competitors from the Dallas area and a free BBQ meal for all competitors and spectators courtesy of Billy James and his grandsons. The main prize is the Veterans Award for the best score by current or former military competitor firing an NRA Service Rifle. There will be other awards such as High Junior, High Vintage Rifle and Match Winner. NRA High Power Rifle Rules apply. Sign up begins at 8 AM, Firing begins at 9 AM. Match fee is $10 for adults, $5 for those under 20.

friends of the NRA banquet
The Friends of the NRA banquet held late last year yielded a quantity of new equipment for our Youth Marksmanship Program. Several NWTFS Directors such as Larry Carr assisted with the banquet while long time NWTFS members like David Shoop were at the tables supporting this fun event with their time and money.
First and foremost was 25,000 rounds of badly needed rimfire ammunition. One day of rifle and pistol practice with 20 youngsters on the firing lines will easily burn up 1,500 rounds. Five .22 caliber Ruger target pistols and three Ruger American .22 caliber bolt action rifles were added to our inventory along with several spotting scopes and youth size rifle shooting coats.The Youth Marksmanship Program will put these to good use. The hardware will last for years and help train hundreds of youngsters.
