Izaak Walton Fundraiser

The club is having a fund raiser at the York Buffalo Wild Wings in York Tuesday.  I know it's not much notice, but if you're thinking about going out to eat keep this in mind. All you have to do is show up and eat.  The club gets money.  If you go you should wear a Pistol Committee shirt and/or hat so the other members know we do our part. Click on this link to get the required coupons.  Keep in mind you need one per person  Buffalo Wild Wings fundraiser

Oktobree All Hallows FunShoot

This event is now full, registration is closed.  

If you did not get a confirmation, you are on the wait list, if you feel you should have and I missed you, drop me a line.




Here it is October again, and the closing FunShoot of the year, will be this Saturday the 26th, we will be taking Nov and Dec off.

SO! Spooks and goblins, and maybe a few Zombies have infiltrated the pits at York IWLA, we need to fight them off and defend the homeland!  Come incognito so you can infiltrate their ranks

Ok, maybe not so dramatic, but you get my drift.  We will be having a costume FunShoot, complete with spiders, spooks, gosties a plenty, and a zombie or two for good measure.  Come in firearm safe costume and add to the fun.

This shoot will be heavy on the steel, both shootable and not, so be prepared for accuracy, there will be 2 wheels, a plate rack, lots of hiding poppin ghosts, and bobbin apples.  Throw in the odd Zombie or two (simulated) and black clays, and even a small haunted house..........did I mention costumes?

This will be a 5 stage shoot, held in the back pits only, and will be limited to standard caliber handguns, OR standard handgun caliber carbines only (yes .22lr too) , there will be no multigun option.  Scoring will be straight points, time or IDK, with only 2 divisions, pistol and carbine, no subdivisions within those.

Registration will start at 8 at the back shed, shoot brief at 8:45 and shooting shortly after 9 am. Fee is $15 for big spooks, $5 for little ones.  Since we are in the back only, I am limiting this shoot to 45 shooters only.

Do you ever cancel Action Matches?

We never have.  Although we did quit in the middle once because of a monsoon-like rain.  The only time we would cancel an Action Match would be for dangerous weather.  Lightning or tornadoes, maybe a flood or heavy snow.

We are not likely to cancel this weekends match.   The rain is supposed to let up and set-up Saturday, and the match on Sunday should proceed as usual.

You should always check this site before driving to our match, just is case we would have to cancel or there is other information you might need to know.  In the event we would cancel I would do so no later than 3:00 am.

Things to be aware of for this match:
- 3 slugs minimum will be required for shotgun/rifle in front pits
- a sling for rifle will be required on rifle/shotgun in the front pits
- there may still be some standing water so bring boots

October Action Matches

On Sunday, October 13th we are going to host a 5 stage action match in the back pits, and a 4 stage action match up front at York Izaak Walton. There will be two time slots available for this match. We will finish setting up at 8:00am and we appreciate your help. Registration for the morning time slot will be from 8:15 until 8:45. Mandatory match briefing will be at 8:55 and we will start shooting about 9:00. Registration for the afternoon time slot will be from 12:00 until 12:20. Mandatory match briefing will be at 12:25 and we will start shooting at 12:30pm. You will be able to shoot the front pits match in the AM and the back pits match in the PM, or vice versa. 

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.  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 shotgun and a pistol as a multigun match. Minimums of 60 of shot (7.5 or 8 only please) and 60 pistol rounds will be required. The cost will be $20 for the back pits multi-gun match. 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 rifle and a shotgun. You will not be able to shoot it with just a pistol because there will be targets that are just too far to shoot with a pistol. You also can't shoot with just a rifle because of the close range steel that must be engaged with a shotgun.  Round counts are not set yet but expect somewhere in the neighborhood of a minimum of 50 rounds of shotand a few slugs (no more than 5 required), and 70 or so rifle rounds to be required.  The fee for the front pit match will be $20. To sign up for this option email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and tell us your name, "rifle/shotgun multigun", AM or PM, division, and anyone you would like to be squadded with.

None of these matches will be for prizes.  All will be scored time plus and we will use the 2013 FNH rules with added pistol divisions for Production, Single Stack, L10 and Revolver.
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.
