Fourth Of July Weekend Match

July 1 @ 7:30 am - July 4 @ 12:30 pm

TRR/WHC Fourth of July Match

Reserve the dates!

To help us prepare for our great nation’s 246th birthday, the Willow Hole Cowboys and Thunder River Renegades will be having a joint match where cowboys and cowgirls will have all kinds of chances to shoot at stuff. We’re calling this our “246 Shots for 246 Years” event. Yes, the round count for the combined cowboy matches will be 246+.

More details will be forthcoming including schedules and match fees. Feel free to email us with questions and suggestions.

We will announce winners for each cowboy match separately and will also announce winners for the combined matches. We will not be giving out special awards for the winners, it’s all just for pride and to celebrate our nation’s founding. Look for more information in the coming weeks.

***22 steel challenge match stages: shooting at five steel targets with a 22 rifle/pistol for time, makeups allowed, 3 sec penalty per miss. Categories are rifle with optics, rifle with open sights, lever action rifle with open sights, pistol with optics, pistol with open sights, and revolver with open sights. You shoot five strings at each stage (use extra mags or speed loaders) and the fastest four strings are added for your score on that stage. Stage scores are added to get the match results.
