FunShoot, June 28th - With a Special Shotgun Side Match!!!


You are not gonna want to miss this!

This his coming Saturday, June 28th, York IWLA presents its monthly FunShoot, along with a seperate Shotgun only Side Match being held on our trap range.

First the FunShoot: I will recycle 4 of the awesome stages from the Multigun Challange, along with our old friends Bulls-eye, choose your own clays, and some kind of food and paint cans to blow up.  There will be a total of 7-8 stages, with a target count of 100-125.  Round count is entirely up to you.

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.

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.

Now, the shotgun Match: This will be a 20 or so target, 60 second max run. Score will simply be time to complete the course, or 60 seconds plus penalties for un-kilt targets.  Targets will be flying birds, static birds, steel, steel launched birds and whatever those devious fellows come up with.  Don't be surprised if you see a star.

High capacity shotguns will be necessary.  Don't have one? No problem, we will have loaners.  Don't have ammo? No problem, we will be selling ammo. Don't have shell caddies? No problem, we will have loaners, and instructors.So, there is no excuse, come on out and play.  The fun starts at high noon, and will continue until we run out of shooters.

Registration is not necessary, just show up and shoot.

The cost of admission for the side match is the purchase of one $10 raffle ticket, to benefit the IWLA Trout folks.  So for $10, you get to shoot a really cool action shotgun stage, and get the chance of winning cash, each day for the month of July, based on the daily lottery.  How cool is that!

 And yes, you can shoot this after you finish the FunShoot, or shoot this if you are not shooting the FunShoot, they are totally separate things.
