Rappahannock Pistol & Rifle Club Celebrates 25 Years

I had the opportunity to spend Saturday afternoon with the fine folks who are members of the Rappahannock Pistol & Rifle Club (RPRC) in White Stone, Virginia. I took my 6 year-old daughter along and we were treated to some fine food and hospitality. RPRC was founded in June of 1982 and the club celebrated it's 25th Anniversary. They could not have asked for a better day as the sun was shinning and temperatures were in the mid 80s.

The club had developed cordial relationships with the neighbors and with town officials and all were invited to the celebration. Delegate Rob Wittman (R-99th District) was also in the crowd of over 150 and offered congratulations to the club on this special day.

The club boasts a membership of over 200 and is still growing. They have a trap field and wobble trap field for shot gun shooters (only one field can be in use at a time) and a 25, 50, and 100 yard range for handgun and rifle shooters. Special thanks to club president Bob Berry and all of the folks at RPRC for inviting me to be a part of this celebration. My daughter and I had a great time.
