It was starting to be a question we got asked daily, when when when. When are you guys going to host a precision rifle match in Saskatchewan. Well folks its finally time!
We will be hosting a two day precision rifle match August 21/22 2021!
The match will be hosted 40 km south of Maple creek SK, right on the edge of the Cypress Hills park.
The match will consist of 16-18 stages over the two days. Shooters will be engaging targets on the clock at varying ranges from 250-1200 yards. 80% of the shooting will take place between 400-800 yards.
Most shooting will take place off of a variety of obstacles for example tires, barrels, cattle gates or roof simulators.
Round count for the match will be 200 rounds BUT it is recommended to bring at least an extra 25 incase of reshoots or an emergency re-zero.
Safety is our #1 priority!
With that we have some rules that must be followed at all times.
- rifles will always be pointed in a safe direction (up or down range)
- rifles wont be loaded until the RO instructs you to do so
- rifles will have a chamber flag in showing clear at all times
- when transitioning during the stage bolt must be open and to the rear
- all youth shooters must be accompanied by a licensed adult
- all shooters must have valid 3rd party insurance to compete ( CCFR )
As per standard rules we will have a velocity and caliber cap.
The caliber is capped at .30 cal (308 Win)
The muzzle velocity is capped at 3200 FPS
- rifle with 10RD magazine preferably two magazines
- adjustable rifle scope with some kind of reticle
- adjustable bipod
- chamber flag
- 225 rounds
- 3rd party insurance
- spotting scope
- shooting bag
- range finder
- wind meter
Now the next big question. What about COVID, if the province shuts us down or for some reason the match is unable to proceed we will be refunding 75% of the match fees. We wish it could be more but with this being our first match we have a great deal of up front expenses that need to be covered like timers, score tablets, rentals, props and steel targets. All of which needs to be in place long before the match date.
Sign up, squading, division and prizes
This is getting pretty long winded so lets hammer out the rest of it. when purchasing a spot you will be asked
- division or basically are you a youth or not
- shirt size ( must be registered minimum 1 month before shoot)
One month before the match everyone will be emailed a link to Practiscore for squading.
we will have 50 spots available for purchase and will try and run squads of 10ish.
Prizes everyone loves prizes, we are going to try something new. We will have trophies for
- Top Junior
And they will collect trophies in that order.
Then 3 shooters numbers will be drawn at random to come up and pick off the prize table. After the lucky 3 have gone we will call everyone else up in order of final score starting with Top junior and so on. Also the 1ST place winner will be given free admittance to the next years match.
Last but not least. We are looking for all the help we can get. Whether it be sponsorship, help setting up/take down or are willing to Squad mom/ help run the stage.
For all of the above or for any questions give us a call or send us a email!
