August FunShoot!

This coming Saturday, August 23rd, York IWLA presents its monthly FunShoot.

Thanks to the uprising in attendance in the last couple of months, you have forced me to build another real stage. So, hopefully the weather will cooperate, and not bake us too hard, as we engage a hanging steel stage in pit 1, a twist to bullseye in pit 2, 4 modified stages from the last action match and our favorite August stage RED DAWN! Those of you who know this stage will welcome it back, those that don't can probably guess (if you know me well enough). There will be a total of 7 stages, with a target count of 100-125.  Round count is entirely up to you, you can shoot them all, or just the easy ones.

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


ANOTHER IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! Our October shoot (Oct 25th) is our annual Halloween costume shoot.  It is a lot of fun and silliness for the trick-or-treater in all of us.  Please plan on attending in costume if at all possible.  With that in mind, we will be forming a squad of Zoot Shooters! and following their protocols. This is similar to cowboy Action shooting, except that is is set in the Roaring 20's-40's, with only period dress and firearms (1950's and earlier) allowed.  For more info, goto http://www.zootshooters.com/
thanks

This has the potential of being a lot of fun.  Plan on it.
