This match has been sanctioned by SASS as “The SASS Virginia State Black Powder Shootout”. It will be operated according to SASS Rules and the sanctioning agreement between SASS and the West Point Gun Club.

In order to differentiate the black powder match from the standard state level match, SASS requires us to refer to the state black powder match as the “Virginia State Black Powder Shootout”. Where as the standard state level match is refereed to as the “Virginia State Championship”.

In addition, SASS requires us to only recognize Category Winners and not to recognize nor award any Overall Shooters for the match.
