April FunShoot

This month we will be shooting a week early, so the the rifle guys can have the ranges for the PA State Bench Rest Championships.  That really is a spectacle to behold, if you get the chance, go check it out.

Now for what is important to me......

This coming Saturday, April the 19th, York IWLA presents its monthly FunShoot.  We will be getting back to our norm, and hosting 8 stages.  I will recycle 4 of the awesome stages from the team 3 gun shoot today, along with our old friends Bulls-eye, choose your own clays and some kind of food to blow up.

I envision the following guns, pistol, shotgun and pistol caliber carbine (.22lr too), in any combination, with a pistol only option.

There will be stage descriptions for those in need, and the usual scoring options of points, timed or IDC will be in place.

Setup/registration starting long about 8am, shooting brief by 8:45am shooting as soon as I can get it going.

Fee is $20 for adults, $5 for those under 18.

Please have chamber flags for long guns, we will probably not have any for sale.  Be creative, I myself used a piece of cardboard today.

Preregistration is not mandatory, but it is extremely helpful, at yorksignup@gmail.com.

Basic Multi-gun class

We will be hosting a Basic Multi-gun class at York Izaak Walton starting April 24th.  It will consist of 3 Thursday evening sessions, a Saturday, and a York match.  The intended audience of this class is shooters who are on the cusp of starting into multi-gun but need that little push, or boost in confidence to get started.   We will be primarily focused on basic skills needed to be successful in multi-gun, and the equipment needed.  We will devote significant attention to drills that will help you improve over the long run. Mike Stephens, Kirk McWilliams, and Howard Thompson will be the primary instructors. The fee will be $200 and the money will be donated to Izaak Walton.

The class was announced to the York Pistol Committee first and it is just about full.  We have 2 spots left and it starts in less than 3 weeks so don't delay if you are interested.
