Spring Shoot Letter
Dated: 31 JAN 2017
Big Sandy Spring Shooters,
It's that time again! With Spring rapidly approaching it's time to start preparing for the Big Sandy Spring Shoot to be held on March 24th, 25th, and 26th, 2017
There has been a large amount of construction/improvements being done to the range which will make for a better shoot and camping experience. We have also added more targets for the cannon shooters.
Please send in your applications with your friends to try to provide for optimal line placement. Tell our extended machine gun family, in the event their name did not get on our e-mailing list, about the shoot and have them print an application off our website. We request all applications be submitted by March 7th so that we have time to set up the firing line and get your line assignment back to you. Applications after that date will be assigned first come first serve.
Continuing this spring, we are offering Special Family Shooters Package. See registration form for information.
We will again be offering 30 minute classes by our instructors for $30 each.Sniping/marksmanship
These classes will be scheduled as to not conflict with matches and major shooting. Additionally, we are offering one-on-one hour long instructor led training for $60. The instructors will have canned lessons such as combat carbine, submachine gun, sniping, combat pistol, home defense or you can dictate the shooting/training session you wish to be trained in. These will fill up fast, please call and schedule your times. If you have any questions please feel free to call. Special arrangements can be made for spectators to join in these classes.
We are going to hold a suppressor demo at this event so we encourage everyone to bring their suppressors and join the fun. There will also be suppressor vendors which will also participate in the demo and you are encouraged to sample what they have.
Matches are being planned for the shoot and there will be a $10.00 match fee added to cover prizes for the matches. This fee is only being paid by shooters that are participating in the matches. If you're not in any matches you don't have to pay the fee. The $10.00 fee covers as many matches as you wish to be in. if you're a spectator and wish to be in the matches please contact us and we will make arrangements.
Food will again be provided by the 4H club. Concession hours will be from Friday breakfast through Sunday breakfast.
Before heading to the shoot check our website for current road conditions. Make a note of site contact phone numbers encase you find yourself in need of assistance or etc.
We pride ourselves in our efforts to provide everyone with a safe place to shoot and thank you for your continued support. We look forward to hearing back from you and hope to have you join our MG Shooter's family for another "REALLY GREAT SHOOT."
