New shooters, don’t forget, the first 4 weeks, you choose your own handicap until averages are set, so you can use your current scores to judge what to use as a handicap, unless you just want to wait until the automatic handicap comes into play.

Stay Safe, and Have Fun!

August Wrap Up

August 28, 2017

There’s only a few days left in National Shooting Sports Month, and we’ve got our final related event on Thursday the 31st–the Right Gun for You free seminar from 7-8, so stop on down and see what fits your needs best.

Summer leagues are winding down, and not too far off are the beginning of fall leagues.  All three summer leagues will be returning with some tweaks to the rules and the scoring system.  There are also 2 new leagues starting up: a .22 pistol league, and a scoped .22 rifle league.  We’ve got flyers available for all of the leagues on the table across from the front desk.

Paul Stark won the Ruger 10-22 with the custom stock during the 18 Holes of Lead-Rifle version re-shoot.  September is gearing up to have a standard, as well as a new long-term contest, as long as we can get all the details to line up.  More details on those coming soon.

We’ve got a new poll up on our facebook page regarding our Test Drive events, in the hopes of finding better ways to tailor them in the future, so head on over and share your thoughts.

Stay Safe, and Have Fun!

League Update 2

August 24, 2017

Hey Shooters! With the start of week five, and therefore the start of automatic handicaps, the league scoring is already showing signs of a lot more movement on the standings. This is in part due to an increased number of breakouts. A number of people have already scored above the max of 300 for this week, and a number of others missed doing so by less than a handful of points.

One of the rules that’s going to change for the fall leagues is in regards to going over 300–current rules state that it gives 0 points for that week, but going forward, breaking 300 will only nullify the handicap for that week, so as not to punish a shooter having a particularly good week and be fairer to shooters who shoot consistently well.


The new rule had been put in place for the fall league a few weeks ago, but prior to week 5, the only person to shoot above 300 was a Cabin employee, so we felt it would be unfair to backdate the rule when the only person benefiting would be an employee.


The new rule will also prevent people from worrying about shooting well, and possibly affecting their scores in a negative way. Week 5 handicaps are still posted on the range office bulletin board where available, so check that out to see what you’re working with.

We’re also still missing a few shooters from the solo league for week 4, and the window is only open through the end of this Saturday, so don’t forget to stop down and take your shots!

Available on the table near the front desk are flyers for the fall season of the leagues.  We’ve got 2 new league additions: .22 pistol, and scoped .22 rifle.  The scoring rules are still being tweaked, so they won’t be available quite yet, but they will be done before the fall leagues start.  Speaking of, fall leagues begin on September 17, 2017, and last through December 9th, 2017.

Stay Safe, and Have Fun!

League Update 1

August 11, 2017

Hey Shooters! Tomorrow is the last day to shoot for week 2, and there’s still some solo league members who haven’t shot it yet.

There’s still until Saturday the 19th to shoot for week 3, so the team and solo leagues standings for those likely won’t be available until next week at the earliest.

I’ve also been looking into an app that can allow league members to view scores from their mobile devices! I can’t guarantee that it’ll definitely see use, but I’ve been in contact with their support team to see if there’s a way for it to account for custom scoring systems. I hope to hear back soon.

We’ve also already started looking into league expansion for the fall season as well, and we’ll be testing the current top options for viability and challenge level.
Speaking of challenge level, some people in the current leagues have suggested what amounts to ‘advanced’ leagues. These would follow the same format of the regular leagues, but with the difficulty increased, i.e. shorter shot timers, increased distance, etc. This will most likely not be available until the winter leagues at the earliest in order to allow more time to gain more data, and a larger league roster to pull opinions from. We’ll be gauging interest over the next couple months to see if this has enough of a backing to support, but feel free to share your thoughts with us beforehand.

Standings:
Week 1 Finalized                               Week 3 Finalized                     Week 2 Finalized

Poll About Contests/Competitions
Hello again, shooters. This time around, we’re taking a look at the structuring of our contests/competitions. What are you interested in shooting? What kind of prize will ‘rifle’ your feathers? Do you live for the chase and the prize is simply a nice token of triumphing over your competitors? Let us know!

We’ve added an events calendar to our website! Head over and check it out, or you can also view our facebook post with the current schedule of events.

Come in and join us this Friday, August 11th, from 4-9 for our 45cal pistol tryout!
The $30 entry fee gets you a 50 round box of 45cal ammo, 2 targets and use of our 2nd floor range. There will be at least one firearm per lane and you are welcome to shoot any of them until your ammo runs out.
Thinking of buying a gun and want to try it first? Walther, Glock, Sig Sauer, S&W, H&K, FN, Kahr, and Beretta are some of the brands available to shoot at our event.
Additional ammunition can be purchased 1 time at regular price for a 50 count box.
Refreshments included and no appointment necessary. Just come on in and do some shooting!

Sharpshooters Cafe is now open! Stop in and have some lunch, or grab some dinner if you’re in later. Refuel after sending some lead down range, charge up beforehand, or just stop in for a meal.

Devin Diao took the win in the 18 Holes of Lead-Rifle version contest with a score of 33!
But that’s not the end of the story, shooters…
Devin has decided to donate the prize rifle back to The Cabin and has asked us to run the contest again. The winner of the contest will get the rifle, and Devin will donate the proceeds of the contest to K9s For Warriors.
The contest will run from August 1st-15th, 2017, with an entry fee of $20. Same rules apply as last time.
Thanks go to Devin for his generous donation, and you can visit his charity of choice at K9s For Warriors

From what we’ve gathered, floating leagues seem to work better for everyone involved, so we’re switching ALL leagues to floating. You can come in any time during business hours to shoot. Following this, current plans for the upcoming fall leagues will also follow the floating method. There is also a plan to expand the leagues to include more types of firearms this fall, and the data gathered already has helped find some weak points in the rules, so they will be getting some minor modifications as well.

We’re also looking into adding some long term, low cost competitions, as well as some new ideas at more active, fun, head-to-head competitions. You can also visit the poll mentioned earlier to put some ideas in there.

Also, keep your eyes open for more details regarding a full-auto event coming soon to The Cabin!

Stay Safe, and Have Fun!
