ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR OUR MATCHES

We are not going to have shoot-offs to break ties. We will go to high chicken count. If there are ties between aggregate scores where neither competitor has hit any chickens, we will go to their turkey count to determine a winner.

SPECIAL NOTE:

The "Quigley Bucket Match" will be held during the lunch break at each match.

The "Quigley Bucket Match" will consist of 5 shots, NO SIGHTERS, a 30 second ready and 5 minutes to shoot. Targets will be 18" (3 M.O.A.) square plates at 600 yards. Competitors can get zeros on practice day or before the silhouette match on match day. There will be no class distinction. Acceptable positions are anything that is legal for BPCR Silhouette. All other rules pertaining to rifles/sights and procedures will be the same as for our silhouette match.

This match will cost $5.00 with the proceeds divided equally between the iron sight winner, scope winner and the club.

Because our range will not be available in May, the "Quigley Bucket Match" will be cancelled for that month.
