October Falling Steel Match

October 14th and 15th we will be hosting a Falling Steel Match very similar to the PSA Shootout instead of our monthly 3 Gun match.  This match will consist of 6 stages, each of which will have between 25 and 30 pieces of steel on them.  The match fee is $30 (per time slot), and you may shoot all three time slots if you like.  We will be shooting Saturday AM (9:00 AM) Saturday PM (1:00) and Sunday AM (9:00).  Squads will be limited to 12 shooters so things should go quickly.

This match should have a broad appeal.  3 Gun shooters can use their pistol, shotgun, and even PCC.  Fun Shooters will find it very familiar.  If you've never shot a match before it should be easy enough to do.  There are a lot of options as far as what kind of guns you can use.  Everyone can use practice shooting steel, and there won't be a ton of pressure, as we will not be doing payouts to winners.

The other interesting thing we're trying this match is we are allowing two person teams to shoot.  Two people will be shooting each array simultaneously, if they choose to shoot as a team.

For more details please read the rules and match information that is attached to the application available at http://tinyurl.com/York-Falling-Steel

We will only be taking 216 shooters total, so don't wait too long to get your application in the mail.

Can a team shoot together using firearms from different divisions? say one with TO shotgun, and one with Limited pistol? or must both use the same equipment within a division.

Jeremy, both members of a team must shoot the same division. There are already 18 possible combinations. Allowing mixtures of divisions would add dozens more. That is too complicated.

How many spots are still open for each time and day. I have a few friends who will probably want to tag along.

There are still quite a few spots open at each time slot. I thought it would fill much faster than it has. That being said, they are coming in steadily so I wouldn't wait too long.

Are you allowing walk-ons on Saturday?
