This match is all “black powder” and takes the place of our regular monthly 4th Saturday match.

The stages will not be emailed out before the match but a printed shooter’s handbook with the stages will be provided in your shooters packet at registration.

On Saturday, the gates will open at 8:00 am, registration will run from 8:30 till 9:30, the mandatory safety meeting will be at 9:45 and the match will start shooting at 10:00 amsharp.

We will shoot the 6 stage main match, then enjoy our hamburger and hot dog lunch with all the fixings, followed by range cleanup and we will end the day with our awards ceremony.

In addition to the category awards, we will be giving out awards for the Best Dressed Cowboy and Best Dressed Cowgirl, so look your best.

The round count for the day is: 60 pistol, 51 rifle, and 33 shotgun.

We have rifle reloads, pistol knockdowns, bonus targets, soda can popper, plate racks, a Texas Star and lot’s of shotgun targets.

If you have not registered for the match and would still like to shoot it, you can. The registration fee is $60.00 and you will have to shoot in the cowboy category in order to keep the awards true. It would be helpful if you would give us a heads up that you are coming.

Also, with this being Memorial Day weekend, you might want to avoid driving on the Interstates as much as possible, due to traffic, taking alternates like Route 30 or Route 17 might be a good idea. Several of our “regulars” will be up in PA this weekend shooting at the PA state match, so we wish all of them Good Luck and Safe Travels.
