More INFO on the Vortex Rampage. Cash pay out to top 3!!! read on. About 30 shooter spots remain and we will close registration on May 15th so sign up fast.

The Range is a licenced shooting facility called Chase the Adventure, and located 10 miles south of Decorah Iowa, which has 4 hotels all under $100. Remember to cancel your previously booked hotel rooms near Vinton.

Our county is opening up so the local independent restaurants should be serving. Decorah is a travel and vacation destination, in your free time visit the trout hatchery and if you like trout fishing there are dozens of streams in and around Decorah with super easy access, that get stocked every week, as well as some native reproduction. A Non Res license for 3 days with trout fee is $38.00 and can be bought online, 7 day is $55. Worms, spinners and power bait all work good. We also have lots of craft breweries to visit, Toppling Goliath, Pulpit Rock, ect Google is your friend!

THE MATCH, Get ready for troop lines, 18 stages of the 20 will be 5 target troop lines, the majority shot prone. In all I think 3-4 stages is all that will be shot off of a prop of some sort.

As stated in a previous post we will open up a tee time sign up 10 day prior to the match, you and your squad mate will sign up for a 2 man squad (might be 3 depending on final number of shooters) If you sign up for the first tee time Saturday you will automatically get the last one Sunday and vice versa. To be fair and not have you shooting first both days. Relax in town, hike the many trails, or trout fish on your time off.

Check In will be approximately 45 minutes before your tee time and check in will be at the Address listed for Chase the Adventure, once the range squads are checked in you will be lead a short distance to the shooting area, double up in vehicles is appreciated.

Prize table will be a random draw that you will participate in at check in. Trophies will be shipped to the winners. We will have 1st-5th, top lady and top youth trophies.

Bring snacks if you need them, you should only be at the range for about 3 hours each day. This is in line with our social distance plan.

30 spots remain as of right now, sign up on the National Rifle Leagues web-page, go to the store. (NOTE THE VENUE CHANGE, NOW IN DECORAH IOWA.)
