Spring is here and we're moving outside. On Saturday, May 13th, we'll be shooting outdoors on the Chatanika Range. It's time for some runnin' and gunnin'. We'll be shooting four stages, two 32-round field courses, a classifier, and a speed shoot. Sign-in starts at 9 A.M., with the shooter's meeting at 10 A.M.
We'll be having a 50/50 raffle so bring some cash! Tickets are $1.00 each, or six (6) for $5.00.
NOTE: We've altered our match fees to better support our junior shooters. Juniors will shoot free until their 16th birthday, and for half-price from 16 years of age until their 18th birthday.
New shooters are always welcome! We'll run you through a new shooter orientation prior to the match. Just show up at the start of registration.
