I will start writing and mailing checks as soon as possible. No, we will not issue plaques. We like cash. The total awarded payout for this match is $4425. Not bad for a 133 shooter match with a reasonable entry fee, good stages, great staff and free t-shirts. Makes me wonder about the other matches. Why aren't they doing more for the shooters?
Thanks again to all staff and competitors. What a great match! Even a little rain on Sunday coudn't dampen the festivities. Everything was smooth as silk. Results were posted quickly. After a couple days to make sure there were no errors we'll begin sending out checks.
All systems are go. Today we'll be attending to the last few details. Everything has been very smooth so far and the weather looks like it should be great Saturday, maybe showers Sunday, but we're ready for it even though we don't expect them until after we're finished.

Action Match Info
Action Matches are matches where shooters are shooting with movement in timed stages, using centerfire handguns, rifles and shotguns, sometimes separately, sometimes together in sucession. This is probably the most fun you can have on the range.
We encourage all interested shooters to come out and watch (with proper eye and ear protection). If they want to become a "qualified competitor" we are happy to teach them (FunShoots being the most popular inroad). Non qualified competitors can not just show up and shoot.
These matches are generally on the 2nd Sunday of the month.
