May FunShoot

Registration is only about half full.  This means we have room for more, drop me a quickie so I can plan for you to attend. It also means that if it stays low, we will have more time to pound away at our steel.....

This his coming Saturday, May 24th, York IWLA presents its monthly FunShoot.  We will be hosting 7-8 stages.  I will recycle 4 of the awesome stages from the Action Match yesterday, along with our old friends Bulls-eye, choose your own clays, and some kind of food and paint cans to blow up.

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

Target count is some where between 100-125

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.

We require chamber flags for long guns, and we will definitely have them for sale if you need them.  

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

Pistol and Shotgun are named "May Pistol and Shotgun"  pretty generic, but it's my first try.   same: https://www.practiscore.com/results.php?uuid=1af9fe56-c5a8-4462-a19a-3627b8b31bc0

Rifle and Pistol results are called "York May Rifle/Pistol" which is much more descriptive.

May Action Match

On Sunday, May 18th we are going to host a 4 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 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.  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 pistol. 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 pistol. Rifle must be 223 or larger and you may not use AP, API , or bi-metal bullets.  If you're not sure please ask.  Round counts are not set yet but expect somewhere in the neighborhood of a minimum of 50 pistol rounds, 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/pistol 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 2014 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.
If you have any questions you may email me at hkbrt@verizon.net

I just wanted to remind everyone that our May action match will be on the 18th, not our regularly scheduled 2nd Sunday due to a conflict with Mother's Day.  We all love our wives and mothers and need to spend time with them.

The match invite for the May 18th match should be out in the evening sometime on Mother's Day so check back for details and sign up information.
