45shooter Posted December 15, 2011 Share Posted December 15, 2011 (edited) I would like to announce a new match series here on the East Coast. The past few years the 3 man team matches at Topton have been a big hit with our local shooters so we decided to try and expand it. Next year we will run a two match series. The first match on May 20 will be at the Topton Fish and Game association (same place as the past two years), and the second and final event will be held on July 14th and 15th at the Peacemaker Training center in West Virginia. Both matches will be 6-7 stages and will feature rolling thunder style stages as well as relay style stages just like the past matches. If you are unfamiliar with this format check out youtube as teams have posted some great video of past years events. Your team must participate in both events to qualify for the prize table. There will be one prize table at the final match and teams will go to the table in order of finish based a combination of both matches scores. Entry fees will be $300.00 per team per event. Teams that are shooting both events and thus will qualify for the prize table and cash prizes will have first chance to enter, then any teams that only want to shoot one event for fun will have a chance at the remaining slots if any are available. Registration will be posted by the end of next week. We already have a number of our past sponsors on board and are planning to have a bigger and better prize table than last year. We are looking to have 12-15,000.00 in cash plus prizes. The match will be limited to 70 teams. A few things have changed as well. We will allow a open division this year. It will be a run what you brung open division, so pretty much anything goes. (no mag restrictions on shotguns) The Tactical division will follow regular three gun tactical rules. (exact rules will be posted in the near future.) We also were asked about the problem of a team having one person only make one of the matche or what happens if they get sick or hurt. This is what we are doing. When you send in your entry form it will have a place to list 4 team members. One will be a alternate. This person may fill in at one of the events if another has to cancel for any reason. ALL THREE OF THE SAME TEAM MEMBERS must start and finish the entire match at each location. You may not substitute a shooter once the match has started. The alternate shooter may also not be on another roster. This prevents people from trying to specialize and swap team members between matches. Once you are on a roster and the series fires it's first shot you may not change teams for any reason! More info will be up soon thanks dean Edited December 15, 2011 by 45shooter Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
