     This fun event is for all skill levels and a great fund raiser for Range improvements. The way it's played is all contestants will have a target with all 52 cards. You will shoot 5 shots at the back of this large easy to hit target 12"x18" (see attached photo) from 15 yards. Turn the target over and see what you dealt for a hand. There will be up to 10 hands. The kitty will be 1/3 of the registration for that hand . You may use any firearm with any sight or scope you want to bring but no loose shot as in bird or buck shot. For this event you will provide your own ammunition. Registration will start at 9AM so please come early to sign up. Volunteers will be needed to arrive at 8 AM to help with set up.
