Just wanted to post some match details and such on the Open Range Shooters Retreat Regional Qualifier on Sept 14/15. Registration will open May 17th at noon. It will be on our website. The link can be found on the PRS website soon. The registration link will not show up until noon at the 17th. This match will be 200 rounds and 20 stages. We are hoping to shoot 12 stages on Day 1 and 8 on Day 2. There are 2 shooting locations less than a mile apart. This match will be held on a very large privately owned cattle ranch. It is an active ranch and not a full time range facility. We are also going to try a new prize table structure - 20 Stages = 20 Stage prizes. One winner per stage, no one can win more than one stage, cash payout to the top shooters. Fastest time and best score will determine stage win. If a person has already won a stage we'll go to the next fastest/best score. Stage prize will have a value of 500+$. We will also have a smaller prize table with some certs, bags, brakes, soft goods, etc. RO's will have random drawings for prizes allocated just for them, you'll be able to shoot all day Friday, We'll do a cookout Friday night for all RO's, We'll also try to hook all the RO's up with Lodging and more! I hope to see most of you there!
