Manatee Gun & Archery Club to host first registered IBS match

Lee’s note: This just in from the Manatee Gun & Archery Club:

Our first registered IBS match of the season is this Saturday November 24th at Manatee Gun and Archery Club in Myakka City, Florida. We have a new target spread that will make getting zeroed at 600 yards much easier that last year. System will feature sighting at 12 x14″ r500+ steel plates.

Please fill out the required match registration BEFORE you get to the range. Also insure that your IBS membership is up to date. You can shoot without being an IBS member, but your scores will not be considered for awards. Go here to download forms. We will have The necessary forms at the match, but
It would be much easier if you have them filled in prior to your arrival.

We will be awarding three trophies for each LG and HG. In addition we will award a plaque to the overall match winner.

Registration / sign-in will close at 8:00 AM sharp. Range fees will be $10 for members and $20 for non members. Match fees will be $10 per rifle, LG and HG would be $20. Bench and relay assignments should be ready by 8:30. Relay #1 call to the line approximately 8:45, line hot no later than 9:00. Do not move equipment to the line before called.

Please contact Steve Krauss with any questions or if you plan to enter the tournament.
