June Multi-gun Payouts

I have done some preliminary figuring on our payouts for the June Multi-gun Tac Ops division.  This is definitely a match you want to put on your schedule.  Besides being a 7 stage match that you can shoot in one day, and get a shirt, and lunch included for only $100, we are doing some serious cash payouts.

Based on 105 shooters (a realistic, but not maximum number of shooters)

100% First $750
100% Second $500
100% Third $250

90% First $600
90% Second $400
90% Third $200

80% First $500
80% Second $300
80% Third $150

70% First $400
70% Second $200
70% Third $100

60% First $300
60% Second $150
60% Third $75

50% First $200
50% Second $100
50% Third $50

These numbers are preliminary and real numbers will be based on 50% of entries collected.  Not 50% after expenses!  This is pretty serious cash.  If you look at a lot of the majors in the country you have to place pretty well to get something off the prize table you could sell for $500 or $600.

The "choose your own class" system worked very well last year, and it allowed us to get some prize money down the list, rather than a standard top down payout or some dumb luck system.  The trick is to know what you're capable of and perform to that level.  Aim a little high.  If you shoot above your chosen bracket you're out.

Expect some great shooters to be there.  Some were last year and now that we've bumped the payouts up I expect to see some more travel for this match.   We will post the list of shooters at registration and you will be able to change your class up until it's your time to shoot.
