Start time for the drop 15 on Saturday will be at 10AM sharp. Be there by 9:30 for signup and a safety briefing please. This go round we will not be taking a break for lunch, with the rotation times there will be plenty of time for you guys to graze between events. We will start the 200 yard team shoot immediately at the end of the drop 15. This may give us time to shoot a rowjimmy event or just relax a bit earlier depending on interest. Once again, a big thanks for coming to hang out.

Not sure the current event qualifies as the Redheaded Stepchild event, but we will be doing the Ginger Fifth Challenge

Here is what we've settled on for this April's event



1 popper at 200 yards with a single shot

Weapon must not have been fired on Sunday

Iron sight only is non negotiable

Shot is to be taken from a bare bench, with no aids other than the bench itself, and your own limbs (no bags, no slings, no bipods, no sleds, just a bare bench, you, and your weapon)

Popper must fall for shooter to advance

All shooters falling the popper advance to the clay pigeon shootout. Rules for shootout are as follows

Clay pigeons at 100 yards using same weapon as the 200 yard shot

Each shooter will have 1 pigeon to hit, and 1 shot to hit it with

Missed birds are eliminated shooters

Birds will be reset each round

Last shooter standing wins the Ginger Fifth

OP has been edited to correct the naming of your event.

Well we could do the 200 offhand.
