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!
