October Action Matches

On Sunday, October 14th we are going to host a 5 stage action match in the back pits, and a 4 stage shotgun/pistol multigun match up front at York Izaak Walton. There will be two time slots available for this match. We will finish setting up at 7:30am and we appreciate your help. Registration for the morning time slot will be from 8:00 until 9:00. Mandatory match briefing will be at 9:15 and we will start shooting at 9:30. Registration for the afternoon time slot will be from 12:00 until 12:30. Mandatory match briefing will be at 12:45 and we will start shooting at 1:00pm. You will be able to shoot the front pits match in the AM and the back pits match in the PM, or vice versa. You may not shoot the same match twice.

There will be 2 options for the back pits action match:
1. You may shoot this match with Pistol only. A minimum of 120 rounds will be required. The cost will be $20 and we will do cash payouts to division 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", AM or PM, division, and anyone you would like to be squadded with.
2. You may shoot this 5 stage match with a rifle and a pistol as a multigun match. Minimums of 60 rifle and 60 pistol rounds will be required. The cost will be $20 for the back pits multigun match and we will pay divisions based on participation.  To sign up for this option email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and tell us your name, "Shotgun/pistol multigun", AM or PM, division, and anyone you would like to be squadded with.

The front pit Multigun match:
Will require a shotgun and a pistol. You will not be able to shoot it with just a pistol because there are claybirds in shot-only stands. You can't shoot with just a shotgun because of the paper targets that must be engaged with a pistol. This 4 stage match will be scored using time plus scoring and IMGA rules. Round counts are not set yet but expect somewhere in the neighborhood of a minimum of 60 pistol rounds, 6-10 slugs, and 50 or more shot (7.5 or smaller only please) to be required. You will not need a sling for your shotgun. The fee for the front pit match will be $20 and we will pay divisions based on participation. To sign up for this option email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and tell us your name, "rifle/pistol multigun", AM or PM, division, and anyone you would like to be squadded with.

If you are shooting both the front pits match, and back pits match, and don't really care what order you do it in you don't have to put any time slots down. It is actually beneficial to us for squadding if you don't.

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.
