Steel Shoot At Carmi, Saturday, July 18, 2015

From the White County Farm Bureau website:

The Young Leader Committee of the White County Farm Bureau is pleased to sponsor the 5th Annual Young Leader Pistol Shoot.  The event will be held on Saturday, July 18, 2015 at the Carmi Rifle Club in Carmi, IL.

The event will include two age classes… an adult class, and a youth class for shooters aged 16 years and younger.  Minimum age for shooters is 12 years old.  Any shooter age 16 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.  

Each shooter will be put in a drawing for a Browning Buck Mark .22 target pistol. The top shooter in each class will receive an additional 5 chances in the drawing; the 2nd place shooter in each class will receive an additional 3 chances; and the 3rd place shooter in each class will receive one additional chance.  

This steel target competition will consist of 5 stations, 5 relays, with 5 targets at each station (minimum of 125 shots).  Each round will be electronically timed.  

After lunch, participants will test their aim in a marksmanship competition, with distance being the deciding factor, not speed.  

Event registration and practice shooting begins at 8:30 a.m., with competition set to begin at 9:00 a.m.  

Registration will be $25 per shooter if registered before July 1.  After July 1, registration will be $35 per person.  Registration includes lunch.  

Shooters will need to furnish their own guns, ammunition, hearing protection, and eye protection. 

Only .22 caliber pistols are allowed to be used in this competition.  In order to have ammunition ready while competing, it is recommended you bring multiple clips for your gun.  Ammunition will be available for sale at cost.

A portion of the proceeds for the 5th Annual Young Leader Pistol Shoot will be used to support the Young Leader Collegiate Scholarship program.

Hi David, that sounds like a lot of fun, wish I could be there to join in. I logged almost 1400 road miles to and from a match last weekend, and this weekend it's only about 175 miles round trip! Your match is a bit too far to drive!!

If you want to have a printed out set of rules and procedures for the match, feel free to 'borrow' from the ISSA website. There are also a bunch of stage designs you might want to look at too.

Have fun, and I wish I could be there too, it sounds like a good time!
