ty hambyng>By popular demand, the "Night Shoot" is back!  Pre-registration required. This match will be limited to club members in good standing with a Marksman or higher classification, who have not been disqualified from a club match in the last 2 years.  Space limited.   Signup HERE


We will have stage setup at 4:00, registration starting at 6:15, Shooters meeting at 7:00 and first shots about 7:15. The gate is in limited operation, and will require a leap frog system like we used during construction.  So don't miss "gate hours" 4:00 to 4:15 for people helping with set-up, and 6:10 to 6:50 for everyone else.  After 6:50, you will need to walk in.

It will be very dark out there (no moon) so bring a non weapon mounted flashlight for shooting and a red or orange chemical light stick for loading mags, blowing your nose, etc.  Active hearing protection (working) will be required due to limited visibility. Night sights are not required, but do help.  Clear shooting glasses help as well. Please bring a red or green light to use while scoring & taping.  Head lamps are perfect. Tactical torches to be used during the COF only.  All stages require that you wear concealment.  

NO WHITE LIGHT is to be used for any reason, except for the shooter on the line!  PERIOD!

Light etiquette will be strictly enforced. You will be expected to keep your light in your own space. No, who light is brighter contests. It is important to limit your personal light leakage to a minimum. When the shooter steps up to “load and make ready” everyone else will be expected to keep their lights off.

Help with stage setup at 4:00 is greatly appreciated.

Have plans in the afternoon. May show up at dark if all goes well.

Glad everyone had fun. Brian

Glad everyone had fun. Brian designed Stage 1 and I came up with theother three. Thanks to Wayne for the loan of the LED road flare 'camp fire' for "Not MY Weiner"... think everyone had some doubts about shooting those first 3 without a flashlight We're working on getting some video posted, so keep checking back. Y'all keep it in mind for next year! Oh... and yes, it does get a bitt chilly. BUT it IS winter.
