General Information:

Parking for competitors;

When you drive in the driveway, please park in the parking area to the right, which is behind the 600 yard firing line. You may drive down range as the weather permits and park to the left side of the road behind the 300 yard line to shoot your 200 and 300 yard stages of fire. When you move back to shoot 600, park in the parking area behind the 600 yard firing line again. Thank you.

Competitors will score for competitors on opposite relays.

A new SMT server electronic target system will be used by all competitors. The club has loaner tablets used for viewing the shots fired. Please bring your own device if you are more comfortable using your own device. Manual scoring will be used for sighting and record shots.

The Range Officer is authorized to reduce the match in shots or distance due to range conditions. Refunds will be made as necessary. The Range Officer has the option to allow alibi firing at the completion of the 2nd string of a rapid fire stage.

Even though there is no "pit duty" for the competitors, you may be asked to help set up the targets prior to the match, and put the targets and equipment away at the end of the match. THANK YOU!

Please be aware since we are not pulling, marking, and scoring each slow fire shot and each rapid fire 10 shot string with people in the pits, if you believe a shot is scored incorrectly instantly tell the match director. We will address the issue and will do everything in our power to correct the issue. The CMP and NRA differ a bit on how to address the issue, but please remember the rulebooks state, THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT MUST RULE IN THE COMPETITORS FAVOR. 

Match Director’s Safety Requirements:

  • Side arms will not be permitted on the shooter’s person while in position and participating in the match.  They may be kept in the shooter’s gear bag, range cart, or in an automobile.
  •  Children over the age of 12 may attend and participate in the match if properly supervised by a legal parent or guardian, however due to safety concerns, unattended children who are not properly supervised, who are not participating in the event will not be permitted on the range for the duration of the event.   
  • Any unsafe activity will be brought to the attention of the participant, with the expectation of modification.
  • 3-shot rule: If any competitor is not on paper at the 600 yard stage of the match after firing 3 shots, consisting of both sighting and record shots, that competitor will not be permitted to continue that stage of the match.  This rule is strictly adhered to for reasons of safety and the increased possibility of skipping a bullet out of the range. If you are not sure of your zero, ask the match director to help you before you fire your 1st shot.
