2022 Multi Gun Point Series

We are allowing sign up for the 2022 Multi Gun Point Series hosted by York IWLA #67. The entry fee for the Point Series is $100, which does not include any entries to individual matches. The prize table will be for everyone in the Point Series in the order of finish.  If you cannot be there, someone will be allowed to pick for you. 


We are excited to announce that we will be adding an Open and 2 Gun ( rifle / pistol ) Division to the series. There must be a minimum of 10 paid competitors (by 1/31/22) in each division before that division will be recognized as valid. Only matches that are shot in the particular division, that the competitor signed up in, will be recognized. The number of participants in the October 9th shoot-off, in these new divisions, will depend on how many competitors sign up. Each of these divisions will have their own prize table. You will find the new 2 Gun Division rule set in the attached word document at 5.6.

 

The top 16 Tac Ops Point Series finishers will be invited to compete in the Shoot-Off, as will the top 2 Seniors, Super Seniors, Ladies, and Juniors. Shoot-Off prizes will be cash. 


We have already heard back from several sponsors and the list is growing every week. We are excited about the new partners coming on board for this year.

Egg Shoot results

I think everyone had a great New Year's Day, and I think we all stayed dry despite the constant showers.  Thanks for all your help.

We will be shooting long range eggs again Saturday, February 5th.  I've already thought of a few things to make it more efficient.  Expect the post to sign up about a week before.  This is part of the monthly fun shoot series, and is just a laid back good time.  If you have an accurate 22lr you should come shoot.

Congratulations to Don Vetter for some pretty good shooting.  He only had 5 misses across the 40 eggs out to 125 yards.

These scores are out of a possible 260 points.

Long Range Egg Shoot Saturday, January 1st

On Saturday, January 1st we will be hosting a Long Range Egg Shoot.  This is the one on the rifle range where you use a 22lr to shoot egg size, and shaped steel at 50. 75, 100 and 125 yards from the benches.  Do not underestimate these targets.  The eggs are about 2" tall.  We've had people see how hard this is and quit.  But if you have a decent 22lr and know your dope this is really fun, quick and requires some skill.  It's a perfect starter sport for those wanting to shoot 22lr PRS and good practice for those who do.


When you sign up at yorksignup@gmail.com you will be assigned a specific time sometime after 9:00 am and you will be expected to be there 20 minutes before your start time to prep your gear, and check in.  You will get your time in the reply to your sign up email.  The match fee is $20.  At your designated time you will shoot 50 yards.  A few minutes later you will shoot 75 yards, and so on.  So theoretically you may be on the range for as little as 30 minutes.  Of course you're welcome to come earlier, and stay as long as you want to watch, but if it is cold you won't have to suffer as long.  That being said we will need spotters so everyone can't just shoot and scoot.  Plan on helping a little if you don't mind.

Everyone has a scheduled time so you being a no show or late has no remedy and will be greatly frowned upon.

I have a two page document with some tips for beginners that may be of interest to you.  If you'd like a copy of that, and/or you'd like to sign up email me at yorksignup@gmail.com

York's November 14th 1/ 2 Gun Match

We will be hosting this month's Multigun Match on November 14th. It will be 4 stages in the back pits. The match fee will be $20. The Practiscore link is ://practiscore.com/york-s-november-14th-1-or-2-gun-match/register. Registration opens tomorrow at 6 am.

The match day schedule is as follows: 
8:00 finish set up (help is always appreciated) 
8:00 registration begins 
8:30 registration ends (anyone arriving after 8:30 is a spectator) 
8:45 mandatory match briefing 
9:00 shooting begins 

The divisions are as follows: 
Pistol
PCC
2 Gun Pistol/PCC

We do have a maximum number of shooters we will take for each of our matches and we do expect the matches to fill quickly. Conversely, don't sign up if you don't intend to shoot, and if something comes up and you're not going to make it please let us know as soon as possible. The Thursday before the match at midnight is the cut off for backing out without penalty. People who persist in not showing up after signing up will not be invited back. We want to benefit as many shooters as possible this season.

Special event! Night Shoot November 6th!

On Saturday, November 6th, I will be running a night falling steel shoot, using the Nov 7th FunShoot setup in the back pits only. We did this a few years ago and it was a blast! The cool part is you can shoot it again Sunday in the daylight for a comparison. The difference is interesting.

 You MUST pre-register for this event by emailing yorksignup@gmail.com, We need to have a handle on the number of shooters, as York Cadre will be imbedded with each squad as RO’s. We will be pre squadding, let me know if you have requests.

There will be some ambient lighting, but the targets will be in the dark, so night vision and flashlights will be needed. Headlights can be employed at the firing line only, no headlights while wandering about the range, they blind folks.

There will be no movement required, and guns will be PCC and handgun, you may bring both, but only one per stage.  In deference to our neighbors, suppressors are highly encouraged.

Long guns must be flagged and either cased or carted.  We will be doing double safety clearing of handguns which must be holstered or cased.

Setup for this thing will be Saturday afternoon, Nov 6th at 4pm, we will start sign in at 5:30-ish and shooting by 6:15 or so. I expect this event to last about an hour, maybe 90 minutes.

The size of this event will be determined by the setup crew that shows up. Remember we will be piggy backing on the FunShoot, so please help out.

The cost is $20.

Carbine Wizardry

 Rick Torres will be doing another shooting class at our club on Saturday, October 30th.  This is the carbine version of his very popular pistol wizardry class.  You can use your .223/5.56 or a pistol caliber carbine.  See his website https://torrestrainingsolutions.com/carbine-wizardry for more details or to sign up.  Rick is offering a discount for members of York Izaak Walton League.

Rick also does personal instruction and with the current cost of ammunition it is more true than ever that good instruction will shorten your learning curve and save you more in ammo costs than the training costs.  Take a class before the weather turns.
