Come out and shoot with us! Get a group of friends, co-workers, or hunting buddies together! Wear a team uniform! Wear a classic side-arm (empty chamber)! Maybe try something fun like have the whole team all shoot the same type of antique or unusual military rifle, even dress the team in surplus uniforms appropriate to your exotic rifles!

we have a traffic routing plan for sunday:
Regular shooters can drive around the FRONT of 200 yd line and unload gear then drive to 300 yd to park.
Those who paid for the premium "President's Package" will be able to park a bit back from 200 near the stat trailer and food area. Volunteers and handicapped and some VIPs will park the other side of the stat/burger area. Cactus Match League has their special place at the end of the line like usual. These groups will have parking passes. Any other vehicle will be towed to 1000 yds and left there.
