FNH Multigun staff application

The application for FULL TIME STAFF only is now available. I am the AMD and I will be handling the staffing for Larry. If you want a staff application email me at hkbrt@verizon.net

The staff package is incredible:
- We do collect the $285 entry fee, but at the end of the match we refund the full amount if you fulfill your obligation.
- You are guaranteed a slot in the match (they will be at a premium)and you shoot the whole match for prizes. We had a $300,00 prize table last year (over 100 guns)and we intend to do better this year.
- We pay half hotel room for the entire time, so if you share a room it's free. Tuesday through Saturday night.
- Food money for the match days.
- Per diem on the Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday before if you're there to help set up.
- First class staff appreciation dinner Friday night
- An unbelievable staff drawing. Last year we gave away a SCAR, an AR, 2 FN pistols, and a custom SBR upper, in addition to a prize for every member of staff ranging from $100 to $300 in value this year will probably be even better.

We had a fantastic staff last year. Most of those guys and gals will be returning and we are adding even more. We are making several changes to the staff shooting and working schedules so everyone will have a more relaxed, enjoyable, and competitive shooting and working experience. If you've never worked for Larry and/or I you don't know how well staff can be treated. We are both driven type A personalites and we aim to run the best match in the country. For both our shooters and staff. Why not be both?

We will need people of all skill levels from RMs and CROs to ROs and people to help with scoresheets, and resetting. We want the best staff available, but don't think that you have nothing to contribute.

What we're asking for from you:
- Staff will be needed from 7:00am Wednesday, September 18th until noon on Sunday, September 23rd.
- The majority of staff will shoot in a single day on Wenesday the 18th of September. They will then work Thursday, Friday, and Saturday while the competitors shoot.
- Saturday PM wil be the banquet with prize distribution.
- Sunday AM we'll tear the match down and load it into the FNH trailers. We should be on the road by noon at latest.

Please keep in mind this early application is for FULL TIME STAFF only. Staff applicants who do not show up to work, but show up to shoot will be removed from the match and their entry will not be refunded.

Competitor-only Applications will be posted sometime in April and will be accepted beginning May 1st.

Thanks, Howard

There will be three scoring classes, points, timed and "I dont care", where you will be scored by total points in an exact round count class, or "timed", where it will be the fastest time to smash all targets, regardless of the number of rounds shot, or "I dont care" where you don't turn in a score sheet.
Either way,  good time is guaranteed to be had by all.

March Funshoot teaser

On Saturday March 24th, we will be hosting our first "official" Funshoot of the year.  It will be heavy on steel, and our old friends the Clays, the Gallery and PPC will return.  It will be 7 or 8 stages and range from serious to silly.  Sadly, the bowling pins have moved away, I know you will all miss them.  I have a scoring scheme I think you will like, we will shoot under 100 rounds minimum (note the new word minimum...), and it will be open to just about any pistol caliber handgun or carbine.  All the nitty grittys will be posted Sunday evening.

This is very important.
Due to overwhelming demand here at York this spring (Thank you!!!!), we have found it necessary to go to advance registration for all of our events so we don't over book the ranges.  Therefore, registration for the Funshoot will go live at 8:00pm Sunday the 18th of March, when I post the shoot details and registration email. NO REGISTRATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED BEFORE THIS TIME.

March USPSA match

On Sunday, March 11th we are going to host a 7 stage USPSA match at York Izaak Walton. There will only be one time slot for this match. We will finish setting up at 8:00am and we appreciate your help. Registration will be from 8:30 until 9:30. Mandatory match briefing will be at 9:45 and we will start shooting at 10:00.

There will be 2 options for this match:

1. You may shoot this match with Pistol only. 4 of the 7 stages will be classifiers. A minimum of 151 rounds will be required. The cost will be $25 and we will do cash payouts to division and class winners with minimum levels of participation. To sign up for this option email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and tell us your name, "Pistol only", your USPSA #, division, and anyone you would like to be squadded with.

2. You may shoot this 7 stage match with a rifle and a pistol as a mulitgun match. The rifle may be any caliber from 22lr to 308 as long as it is suitable for action shooting (no bolts or weird stuff). The pistol must be a centerfire pistol. The reason for these parameters is we are shooting only paper with rifle so it really doesn't matter what caliber it is. We will be shooting steel with pistols so it has to knock them down. All of the shooting will be less than 35 yards as these are really pistol stages. Minimums of 78 rifle and 73 pistol rounds will be required. The cost will be $20 for the multigun match and we will NOT be doing any payouts for multigun regardless of participation. We will also not be differentiating between divisions so you can use any combination of firearms for the MG option. We will post overall MG results but they will be all divisions combined. It would just be too complicated to keep track of all the options for this kind of match and I really don't see much advantage in one caliber or another or type of gun this time so we're just not. Let's just use it as practice and have fun with it. To sign up for this option email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and tell us your name, "Multigun", your USPSA #, and anyone you would like to be squadded with.

This match will fill quickly. Do not hesitate to get signed up. You should receive a confirmation email from us within a day or two. If for some reason you have signed up but will not be able to make it to the match please let us know. Persistent no-shows will not be invited to shoot in the future.

There is only one time slot, and there is a limited number of slots available so you may not shoot more than once. You may not do both the pistol and multigun options. You may not classify in more than one division.

If you have any questions you may email me at hkbrt@verizon.net
 
We just finished setting up the back pits and the match looks like a lot of fun thanks to my talented and dedicated crew.
