March FunShoot

This coming Saturday, March the 25th, we will be hosting our monthly FunShoot.

On any stage, you can run any one or combination of two of the following guns; standard pistol caliber handgun, standard pistol caliber carbine or shotgun (7 1/2 lead shot or smaller). You may bring all 3 to the shoot, and you can change the choice of guns on different stages, but only two guns max per stage.

Target count will be around 100-125 targets. There will be some movement required of the shooter, but not a ton.
This is a free form shoot. I will present shooters with targets, it is up to the shooter to decide how best to engage them, as long as it is done in a safe manner.

Registration is from 8-8:30am, safety brief at 8:45, shooting close to 9am, we should be done by 1pm-ish.
Cost is $20 for adults, $5 for kids under 18.

There will be a setup for this Friday afternoon, the 24th at 3pm. Email me if you are interested in helping out, it will take less than an hour.

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 for sale. There is no carrying of loaded firearms, open or concealed.

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 shrapnel, little flying bits of metal that can hit you on occasion.

March 12th Match

This match is now full.  If you'd like to get on the waiting list you may still email.  If you are in you should have gotten an email saying so by now. 
Our Sunday, March 12th match is not a point series match.  It will be an easy, fast season starter match and a different kind of thing.  You may shoot either pistol, pistol caliber carbine, or shotgun.  There will be no provision for multiple guns.  Pick one and stick with it.  

The match fee will be $30, and expect a round count of between 150 and 180 rounds for Pistol or PCC.  If you're shooting shotgun expect around 100 rounds of birdshot and 12 slugs minimum.

To sign up email yorksignup@gmail.com  with your name, anyone you'd like to be squadded with, and division.  You should receive a confirmation with more details within a day or two.

Division choices are:
PCC Lim - like our rifle rules for Lim.  One optic with no magnification, 30 rounds in mags after the start signal, etc.
PCC TO - like our rifle rules for TO.  One optic, magnification allowed, 30 rounds in mags after the start signal, etc.
PCC Open - like our rifle rules for Open. Multiple optics, unlimited magazine capacity.

Limited Pistol - Think TO or Lim 3 Gun or USPSA Limited without the power factor.  Iron sights and 140mm mags.
Open Pistol - Think 3 Gun or USPSA Open without the power factor.  Scopes and 170mm mags.

Limited Shotgun - like our 3 gun rules for TO or Lim.
Open Shotgun - Anything else.  

Others?  If you see a niche you want a division for let me know, but no calibers smaller than 9mm.

Please use only the yorksignup@gmail.com address to sign up for matches.  If you reply to this one, and I'm away and whoever checks the yorksignup email doesn't get your email you're going to miss the match.

Remember everyone gets only one no show a year without penalty.  Don't hesitate to sign up if you want to shoot because our matches fill up quickly, but if you can't make it be sure to let us know by midnight Thursday night so we can give someone else the opportunity.  The first time you no-show us we can forgive you, but the second time you automatically go to the waiting list.  Then if the match isn't full or someone drops out you might get in.  You will be notified the Friday before the match to tell you if you are in.  This is regardless who you are or even if you're in the point series.

Amazon Smile!

It always surprises me, how many of us use Amazon, but do not know/forget about Amazon Smile!

Amazon Smile! is this cool thing where Amazon donates a small percentage of your Amazon purchase to a charitable organization. It can be used with Amazon Prime! and doesn't cost you a penny.

Once a quarter or so, Amazon adds it all up and sends us cash.

And its easy.  Goto this link https://smile.amazon.com/ch/23-2047305 

 and simply login. Be sure, when you select the charitable organization, you select "Izaak Walton League of America, York Chapter No. 67", There are about a bazillion chapters listed, and an incorrect selection will send your donations to another chapter.
 

Happy shopping, and Thanks.  It really works, we are seeing real dollars coming to the club.
