Or just do what I did years ago, & host one yourself.

I would also like you to host a match. Its been a while since that.

An ELR match would be awesome. Ill bring my 338 out for a day of fun!!



How much money is considered "BIG MONEY"??

Our match was I think $225.

But that's for 2 days of shooting, 150 targets set up, 23 stages over those two days.

4 gormet meals valuing $20 a meal easily.
all the snacks and water/sports drink to your hearts content.

place to camp,
Nightvision and suppressor demo
chance to ride in helicopters (sorry not this year)
and shoot weapons you only see on TV. (yes this year!!!)

All of a sudden, $225 is a "low money" comp, Am I right? OR right?

Sorry Jeff, not taking any offense to that, just trying to host a great match and work my butt off, and I don't even see that money as we donate it to the youth ranch. And I happen to be "over there".

A big goal I had was to make one of the matches "over there", Mine, affordable. Look at some of the premium matches across the country, prices are creeping up to the $300 range.

    Jake. Please don't take the big money comment as derogatory. I was referring to the big difference between a match like yours, & Kettle Falls to one like mine. Mine was cheap, & cheesey. Yours is big, & awesome. I would have loved to shoot your match but I was not planning to be here. I was moving to Tx but some family issues have me stuck here for some time now. They just closed my spot in Acme last week so I'll be looking for another place to shoot during the winter.

    All good Jeff, and no your matches are not cheesy!

    What about that spot up in Winthrop? Can we shoot up there in the winter? What would it take to do something up there? say sometime in late june early july?

    The spot up there is @ 5200' so unless everyone has a snow mobile it ain hapnin in winter. When its accessible depends on the snow pack. If its light we may be able to get up there in June or July. If its heavy it might be August. Its a beautiful spot. Used to hunt up there. Could stretch out a 20mm up there too if you want.

    We'll see. I'm still hoping to move south, but it's not looking good now. My mom's back surgery was a lot more extensive than expected, & she may not recover enough for me to be able to leave. So my life is all up in the air right now. But I'd love to have a few guys up there for a weekend of shooting. Don't know about doing a full fledged match, but I don't know.

    Let me know the next time you are headed up to Winthrop. I have two plates installed that ought to still be there, accessible on a logging road. They are about a half-day hike to get to so I'm planning on just leaving them up. AR500 and painted camo so they are hard to spot.

    I heard a rumor, and I'm not at all certain that it's true, but there is talk of moving the SUPERBOWL to SATURDAY if the weather forecast in NY on Sunday is too negative (big storm predicted either Sat or Sun arrival),... Anyone else heard such a lame-brained idea? They obviously haven't checked the shooting schedule at UNSC and realized there's a match that day,...

    I'm sure you're right, Eric,... I hear Roger Goodell (NFL Commissioner), Anton and Kevin smoke cigars and drink cognac together during the off-season. I'm sure they're in close contact during this crisis,... ;)

    Welcome to the Hide! There are quite a few active shooters in the area and we get together often. You should check out a few of the other threads for this area such as http://www.snipershide.com/shooting...p/115586-puget-sound-area-shooters-group.html and http://www.snipershide.com/shooting...-matches-upper-nisqually-sportsmans-club.html.

    Myself and Unknown are the match directors for the monthly matches in Eatonville and you are more than welcome to come out next Saturday and meet some great people and see what we do.

    If you can't make it out to the match and you would like to meet up some other time hit me up. I spend most weekends out shooting and I enjoy bringing new shooters into our group.

    I have one box each of Berger 308168T, 30414, and 30408. The 30408 have not been opened, the other two have but I don't think they are missing any- or more than a couple. $40/box FTF Wenatchee area, or will traded for #30426 one for one. Open to trades, but cash is always good.

    kevin d, sgm here I take it that the upper nisqually sportsmans club is in Eatonville?.I know very little of the area north of Oly but the match sounds like a good time. I do "alot" of shooting but have only shot a couple of tac matchs. The matchs i've shot were in Jordan Mt. put on by s.hide member mtetm he is the one that got me connected to the s.hide and helped getting me started in the sport. I take it that if I punch in nisqually sportsmans club into google maps it will make me a map. p.s. I talked to nick about doing some shooting sounded like you maybe one of the closer members to my location come on out and shoot some steel some time.

    The Upper Nisqually club is the one in Eatonville where we have our matches. Go to their webpage UPPER NISQUALLY SPORTSMAN CLUB -- Home and you can get directions.

    I would love to meet up sometime to go shooting. Next weekend is the UNSC match and then Superbowl on Sunday (GO HAWKS!) but the following weekend I don't have any plans. If you want to get together the weekend of Feb. 8th or 9th let me know. Just hit me up here on the hide and let me know.

    Yay! My second Form 4 tax stamp finally came in for my Gemtech Sandstorm .30 can. Only three weeks short of 1 year since I submitted the paperwork... :(

    I'd been kinda wishing the factory tube on my Savage 12 LRP 6.5CM would give up the ghost... that barrel is huge (26" long, just under 1.1" @ muzzle) for a field gun, but it still shoots good! Now that I have everything together... Vortex Razor 5-20X HD scope... McRee Gen5+ TMag chassis... TIS sling... Atlas bipod... Gemtech titanium suppressor... I'm thinking I definitely need to start squirreling away $$$ for a new barrel. The whole thing is right on about 54-1/2" long from one end to the other, and weighs 19.36 lbs!! Yikes!!
    :eek:

    Looks like we'll have 4 female shooters out of a field of 21. It's great to see more woman getting involved in the shooting sports.

    Would like to get 2-3 more on standby as we always have a few that can't make it due to life happening.
    Anybody out there riding the fence on this, get a hold of me ASAP.

    I know this is short notice, however we will be running the moving target today @ NCW Gun Club in East Wenatchee @3:00pm, if you want some practice. Might run it tomorrow also if enough people commit. Bring $2:00 to help with gas, paint, target up keep etc.
