There will be 2 cardboard half-body silhouettes and 1 full-body silhouette at 385 meters. There will be 3 cardboard full body silhouettes at 500 meters. All silhouettes are stationary and will be in stands on the berm in front of the backstops. Hits will not be scored until the relay has completed the entire course of fire. The targets will be left brown. Course of Fire: The firing teams on a relay will form up at the club house. Carrying their rifles (with EICs inserted), ammunition, spotting scopes and back packs (which can be used as a rest), the teams will move on foot to the 500 yard silhouette firing berm and set up on the rear slope of the berm. Firearms will not be loaded until range officer gives the order to load. Team members can choose to load the magazine or load singly. On the direction of the range officer, each team will be allowed a total block time of 25 minutes for the team to fire a total 40 shots at the silhouettes, 10 shots at each distance. Each shooter must fire 20 shots. This includes switching shooters and spotter. While changing shooters the rifles have to be unloaded and ECI’s inserted. A total of 10 shots will be fired at each of the four distances. A team may choose not to utilize a spotter and both team members can fire at the same time during the 25 minute block time. Upon completion of firing all rifles will be unloaded and ECI’s inserted, the shooters will pack up their equipment and withdraw back to the club house. Once the line is cleared, officials will move down to the targets and score the number of hits on each of the targets and patch the targets. While the targets are being scored the next relay may move to the firing line and set up, but they may not handle their rifles until the scoring is completed and everyone has returned behind the firing line. Scoring: Each hit on a silhouette will be worth 1 point. Any team failing to score at least 1 hit on each of the 12 targets will be disqualified. If there are more than a total of 10 hits on a team’s 3 targets at any given range, the team will be accessed 2 points for each extra hit. Any team observed firing more then the allowed number of shots will be disqualified. The maximum score possible is 40 points. If there is snow on the ground, teams will be penalized five points for not wearing some white camo. Awards: Each member of the team with the highest total score will each receive a plaque. General Information: Lunch is not available at the range, so competitors should provide their own food and water. For more information contact Tom Reiten at 701-739-1988 or .

Hall of Fame Inductee

William (Bill) Langer

We will induct William Langer into North Dakota’s Marksmanship Hall of Fame and hope that you can join us.

We will recognize Bill’s efforts and commitment to improve the shooting sports in North Dakota from his home in the very small community of Perth, ND

  • Bill has sustained membership in the NRA and NDSSA for more than 20 years.
  • Bill has served as an officer of the NDSSA Board of Directors.
  • Bill has been an officer in a local club.
  • Bill has served as a youth marksmanship coach for far more than 10 years.
  • Bill has been an active competitor in the rifle and pistol shooting sports for much more than 20 years.

What is unique about Bill’s accomplishments is something that had not been previously done in North Dakota.

Bill was instrumental in the introduction of the shooting sports into the Wolford Public School System. Bill established the Wolford Wolves Shooting Sports Team. Members of that team were thus able to compete in State Championships, Regional and National Championships with the full support of the Wolford Public School System. He is now attempting to do something similar in the St. John, North Dakota school system, and we wish him the best in that endeavor.

It is Bill’s devotion to the promotion of light rifle and air rifle as well as air and smallbore pistol programs for youth that has really made a mark on the future of the shooting sports in North Dakota.
