2020 Falling SteeLdates

A couple people have asked me about these recently so I thought I might as well post this.

The dates for Falling Steel at York this year are:

Saturday, April 11th
Sunday, May 3rd
Sunday,July 5th
Sunday, August 2nd (PA Falling Steel Championship)

The first 3 matches will be 5 stages and $20 entry.  The last one will be 6 or 7 stages and it will cost $40, but include cash prizes.

All 4 matches will allow multiple entries within the same time slot, teams, lots of divisions with high cap or 10 round limits, and PCCs with almost no limitations to capacity or configuration. 

Changes for this year include the steel will be painted white after every squad, some wider arrays, ipad scoring, and no shotguns.

Applications for the August match will be available by April match.

February FunShoot Announced!!!!!

Today a rather incredible crew put down 5 stages of PSA style steel in the back pits. The weather for our shooting time Saturday looks clear and high 30's-low 40's, so let's just do it!

This Saturday, February 22nd,  we will be hosting our monthly FunShoot.

We will present you with 5 stages of 30-35 falling steel targets each.

There will be no setup this month, it is all done.  I will put a few finishing touches on it at some point.

Fee will be $20 for adults and $5 for anyone under 18.
Signup by 9:15ish, safety brief at 9:45ish, shooting at 10ish (let it get a tad warmer...)

Firearm choice will be standard pistol caliber handgun, standard pistol caliber carbine, or shotgun (7 1/2 lead shot or smaller). You may bring all 3 types to the shoot, and you can change the choice of guns on different stages, but only two guns max per stage.
Yes, .22LR (not magnums) and  .300 BO subsonic are acceptable.

York is a cold range. Unloaded firearms are carried around the range holstered, boxed, bagged, slung, carted or in a sock. Long guns require a chamber flag, and they will be available for purchase.

Bring family and friends, we are very new shooter and kid friendly. Spectators are welcome!

Everyone on the range MUST WEAR EYE PROTECTION WITH SIDE SHIELDS. We will be shooting steel, and it creates little flying bits of metal that can hit you on occasion.
Eye protection will be available for purchase.

February Long Range Egg Shoot

On Sunday, February 2nd 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.

This year when you will sign up for a specific time, between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm and you will be expected to be there 20 minutes before your start time to prep your gear, and check in.  The match fee is $20.  At your designated time you will shoot 50 yards.  10 minutes later you will shoot 75 yards, and so on.  So theoretically you may be on the range for as little as 40 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.

If the weather is extremely cold or treacherous I will cancel the match well ahead of time, but because everyone has a scheduled time being a no show or late has no remedy and will be 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

Congratulations to our winners Don Vetter and Jay Heydt.  Your scores were impressive, especially considering the weather.

I hope to see all of you at our next long range egg shoot, Sunday, February 2nd.  Expect sign up information around the 26th of this month.
