Steel Challenge Complete and Successful!

The 1st Annual PA State Steel Challenge is complete and it was very successful. I would like to thank all of our competitors, staff and sponsors, for their support.

The results are available at http://yorkiwlaipsc.org/Results2009/2009PAStateSteelChallenge_FinalResults.pdf

Match Director Kirk McWilliams did an incredible job, especially when you consider it was his first attempt at the MD position. He has told me it was quite the learning experience. Be sure to thank the guys who take on that responsibilty when you see them. If you've never done it you cannot imagine the time and energy it requires. Without them there would be no matches.


Though we didn't have as much staff as we would have liked, we are thankful for the extremely dedicated crew we had. Several of them didn't even have time to shoot the match they worked so diligently. Again, be sure to thank your ROs as we need them too.


We are thankful to our sponsors Nevco Targets, AC Delco, Shooting Sports Training, GT Targets, and 511 gear. Be sure to remember them when you're shopping. Between these sponsors and some cash we set aside we were able to give out almost $3000 in door prizes. We hope to have back all of these sponsors and more for next year.


We will also be mailing checks totaling over $1500 to the following based on their performance:

1st Lim Todd Jarrett $220
2nd Lim James McGinity $120
3rd Lim Scott Warren $60

1st Open Todd Jarrett $137.50
