Shooting Updates

Cowboy Action Shooting

We’ll be placing the CAS schedule for the Rivanna Rangers (Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club, RRPC) on the WSC web site. We’ll plan at least two CAS outings – one in the Spring and one in the Summer – as well as trips to RRPC to try out CAS guns.

Shotgun (Clay and Trap)

Because of the weather uncertainties the Flying Rabbit outings scheduled for February and March will be cancelled. The next Flying Rabbit outing will be Tuesday, April 8. Stand by for updates by email and on the WSC web site.

According to the RRPC web site and newsletter (, the sport of trap shooting is taught and coached every Wednesday, November through March, from 12:30 p.m. to sunset. Anyone interested should contact Bill Perrelli (

One of our members, Alice Faintich (, has been in contact with a sporting clay school called The Glorious Twelfth, located in Lexington. There’s a British instructor there (Andy) who specializes in working with women, including gun fitting. The WSC sent out an email looking for interested women for a spring shooting date. So far four women from the Club are interested in taking a group lesson in the
spring, probably late March or early April.

Rifle and Pistol

The indoor range at RRPC for pistol and 22-cal rifle shooting is also open to Wintergreen Sporting Club members if they are accompanied by an Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club member. Bill Perrelli would certainly be happy to post to the could accompany him.

There are additional opportunities for rifle and pistol shooting. These opportunities include the free shooting range the Forest Service has outside of Staunton and one at the Isaac Walton League south of here. 

Dave Litchfield has indicated an interest in helping to organize a club trip to the Forest Service rifle and pistol range west of Staunton at some point. The range is free and open to the public. Additionally, Tim Hess (Wintergreen Real Estate) has spoken to one of our members about a potential pistol range we could develop close by. Bill Perrelli and Larry
Luessen will also be following up on these opportunities
