Limited spots available at this time

Welcome to the dirty, HOT south. This match will consist of 16 stages. There will also be side matches on Friday for both your rifle and a sponsored pistol. These two side matches emphasize both speed and accuracy. So plan accordingly. Lunch will be served to the firing lines on both Saturday and Sunday. Don’t forget your sunscreen, skeeter spray and hydration system. You’ll need them! Friday & Saturday night includes free preferred adult beverages and food for all registered shooters. In July, each registered shooter will be sent (via email) more information about the match along with a PDF copy of the match booklet.

**Anyone interested in being an RO will receive free lodging as well as the free food & drinks both Friday & Saturday nights.
