We hope you can join us on Sunday, December 18, 2011 for our Waiting for Santa Match indoors at our winter range, the Bullet Express in Springfield, Illinois.
We’re starting our Match at 9:00 a.m. sharp!
December Stages are posted.
Registration is 8:00 am to 8:45 am
If you plan to bring a gun cart, please arrive around 8 a.m. as space is limited. If you can offer another shooter space on your cart, that would be helpful. There are “back bays” if you don’t bring a cart.
Mandatory Shooter’s Meeting starts at 8:45 am
Directions to Bullet Express Range just off I-55.
$50 Reward Offered
Don Jorge lost his “screw-knife” in October, sometime between the cowboy match and the wild bunch match [4th and 5th weekends in October]. It has a light bone and metal handle and a Damascus-like blade. He’s offering a $50 reward for its safe return.
Our Annual Suggestions & Hints for a happy and healthy indoor match:
- Remember to bring your guns to the match.
- Please leave your black powder at home. It’s a “no-no” on the indoor range.
- It’s easier to reach your shotgun shells during a stage when they’re in your shot shell belt rather than on your gun cart.
- The range is cold in two ways — A) We don’t load any firearms except at the loading table; and B) The air and floor are both chilly, so you might want gloves, warm foot ware and hand/toe warmers.
- Have fun and do your best!
Match begins right after our Shooter’s Meeting. We must be finished at the range and cleaned up by 12 NOON!
Cost is $10 for Members, $12 for Non-members [You can become a Long Nine member at the match].
Gun cart is optional, as there are bays and shelves available. Please arrive early if you plan on setting up your gun cart or share your gun cart if possible.
We’ll shoot 4 stages, as we have in previous years:
- Two stages with pistol and shotgun
- Two stages with pistol and rifle [including a rifle bonus this time]
