We are taking a different approach to the indoor match this year – we are going to mimic a standard cowboy match as much as possible.
The Indoor Shoot is scheduled for Sunday, March 19th. We’ll shoot 3 or 4 stages depending on the number of people and time it takes to shoot them. This means the round count will be 40 pistol and 40 rifle. No shotguns or black powder are allowed.
RSVP requested but not required. If you don’t want to shoot, come out for the swap meet.
ADVANCE REGISTRATION for both the Indoor Match and Swap Meet is requested but NOT required. Come on out even if you didn’t preregister. We’re just trying to get an idea of how many people may show up for planning purposes.
