This is an annual event which provided an opportunity for young shooters to participate in formal competition in a fun and safe environment. It’s an entry level event meant to develop the skill of younger shooters but it is a competition and NOT an instructional format so all shooters must be familiar with how to operate their rifle and the basics of firearms safety.
Registration is open to any shooter age 15 and under. Shooters will register in one of five divisions – 6/7, 8/9, 10/11, 12/13 and 14/15 year-olds. 6/7 and 8/9 year-olds compete from 25 yards, all other divisions will compete from 50 yards. All divisions will fire 10 rounds for score. There are no sighter shots so shooters should establish a good zero on their rifle prior to match. All shooting will be done from the benches without artificial support – ie; no rests, bags or bipods. Shooters may use any sporting rifle chambered for .22LR. No target or match rifles are permitted. Scopes and optical sights are permitted with a maximum magnification of 9 power. Match ammunition will be provided by the club and will be used by all shooters.
Prizes are awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place shooters in each division.
This match is normally held on the first Saturday of October and like all club matches is open to non-members as well as members.
