Fall Round-Up 2022 is coming up fast. Regardless of what you enjoy most about FRU: The fun side matches, the free Friday night pizza party, free Saturday lunch, the Saturday night banquet, or the free awards lunch and ceremony, the procedural and miss tickets, or if you just enjoy the late September 3-day match at Camden Mills, come on out and help us celebrate FRU in style.

Side matches, some of which you’ll find nowhere else, have always been a big part of Fall Round-Up. This year is no exception. Chancy Shot has been hard at work getting ready. In fact, he’s added a new side match this year titled Annie Oakley’s Shotgun. See our Side Match document inserted below for more information. Alternatively, you can click here to download the FRU 2022 Side Match Information document.
On a related note, while not a true side match, we have arranged to have a Gatling gun on site for all to try if they wish. There will be a $35 charge for a 20-round magazine to cover the cost of the owner’s ammunition. This particular side match is not scored. Just something a little extraordinary.
