On another note, we’ve some exciting news about next year we will reveal during Fall Round-Up’s Award Ceremony. All we can say for now is you’ll definitely want to plan a trip or two this direction next year. Stay tuned! For those of you who aren’t making it to Fall Round-Up 2021, we’ll also post a little something on the web shortly after its conclusion. (Suspense is intended!)
Side Matches: We are again offering a bevy of side matches this year, including a new one never before seen. Here is a link to the list of side matches and the rules governing them: Side Match Rules
Miss and Procedural Tickets: As we’ve done for many years, we will be selling Procedural and Miss Tickets for use during Fall Round-Up 2021. Procedural tickets cost $10 each and Miss Tickets $5 each and can be purchased only during registration (i.e., prior to the match beginning). Each registrant has an option to purchase 1 Procedural and 2 Miss tickets for the entire 2-day match during registration.
Here is how the tickets work: If a shooter makes a Procedural error during a stage they can use the Procedural ticket to avoid the 10-second penalty normally awarded. Likewise, if a shooter has a miss (or a few), the shooter can use their Miss tickets to avoid the 5-second per Miss ticket used. Only 1 Procedural and 2 Miss tickets total per shooter can be used across the entire match. The shooter must tell the scorekeeper immediately after completing the stage that they intend to use their tickets, then give the tickets to the scorekeeper who will make the appropriate adjustments on the scoring sheet.
Please note: Procedural and Miss tickets cannot be used on Stage 8 – the shotgun only stage. Also, tickets can only be used by the individual shooter for whom they were purchased and cannot be transferred to or used by someone else.
Food Options: In addition to the full lunches being served on Saturday and Sunday (which are included in the Registration) the following food options will be available for purchase:
Friday Sept 24 Side Match Day: Chili is being served by Alpha Beta Sorority (St. Jude’s ); and,
Sat & Sun Main Match breakfast and mid-Match snacks: Little Ranger will have a variety of individually packaged items to help satisfy your breakfast and snack needs.
Just a quick note from Illowa Irregulars wishing everyone a fun and successful Gunsmoke. Some Irregulars arrive tomorrow, some Wednesday, and still others Thursday. It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again, but it’s upon us. Best of luck to everyone!
Once Gunsmoke is but a recent memory, we turn our attention towards Fall Round-Up 2021, Sept 24-26. We’ve a very respectable 104 registered shooters.
Matchbook: Be on the lookout for another web post/email later this week when the Match Book is scheduled for publication (psst. . . . Friday, Sept 16 at 8:00 a.m.). If you’re curious, be sure to download and take a look. If you’ve seen the Teaser Videos you’ll recognize many of the stage lines and more. We even painted one of the stages red (sort of) to represent Lago from High Plains Drifter. Don’t forget, you can purchase two Miss and one Procedural ticket for use anytime during the match at registration. This should be an outstanding match.
Side Matches: We’ve the usual Fall Round-Up Side Matches, including among others, the Running Buffalo. However, we’ve added two Side Matches titled Winchester ’73 and Support Your Local Sheriff. Click here for a list of the side matches and the rules governing them. The rules for the two new ones are in the second column, 2nd and 3rd from the bottom.
Just a quick note to let everyone know that the our regularly scheduled Wednesday, September 15 and Friday, September 17 practices are cancelled next week since many of the regular shooters will be attending the SASS Midwest Regionals in Minnesota.
