    The entry fee will include Dinner on Friday night, and Lunch on Saturday, and a cool T shirt for each Competitor, Preregistration will be required. We have the capability of hosting 30 shooters. There will be trophies as well. We are working for sponsor prizes, and we may do drawings throughout the day Saturday.

    For those traveling distance, Paw Paw, MI is closer to the range than Kalamazoo, and may provide nicer arrangements for Hotels / Motels.

    Plans are to have practice and bench assignments, and meet and greet day on Friday, then dinner. Start with the matches on Saturday morning at 9 am. The matches will consist of 2 complete (3 targets each) USARB “styled” matches with USARB targets at 25 meters. Competitors can shoot 2 rifle classes for a combined “2 gun” score, or they may shoot the same rifle twice for a chance at the best rifle in that class. Classes will be Springer, Light Gun, Heavy Gun, & Open.

    We will allow air rifles to be 177 -22 caliber. Light gun can be up to 12 FPE, Heavy can be up to 20 FPE, and Open can be up to 35 FPE… Springer is not rated with FPE

    “2 gun” aggregates will be as follows… Springer and Heavy, or Light and Heavy, or Heavy and Open… that will give shooters 3 classes in which to register for the 2 Gun recognition.

    Pre-registration is required to me Paul Becigneul at on or before July 31 2021… checks and money orders made payable to SMGC, my address is on the Registration form.

    PayPal through Chris Martin, also on the form. All shooters will sign the club waiver / release when arriving at the club. Junior shooters (those under 18) must be accompanied by an Adult. Awards will be given to all First, Second, and Third Place finishers with more than 3 shooters in a class, mentions and certificates will be made to all winners with less than 3 in a class.

    Awards will also be given for all top Finishers in each “2 Gun” division with 3 shooters in a division. Again, certificates if there are not 3 in the “2 Gun” division. Raffles / drawings will be held through the day on Saturday depending on what we pull as sponsored merchandise.

    There will be a Swap and Sale area set aside.

    Most of All….

    Why: Because this is Extremely Fun!!!

    One thing I should mention for those of you traveling with your PCP's to our beautiful range for the first time, we do have a very good compressor and fill station on site. So we can refill your pony bottle, SCBA bottle in the morning or evening to get you through the days events.
