Default Talladega Match this weekend (more info)

I know BR549 posted something about this match but I wanted to add a little more info.

***This match is SEPT 12th at Talladega Park***

I'm posting this in couple of different groups/forums. Don Rutherford called me several weeks ago and we talked about the Course of Fire for this match. We kicked around some different ideas and this is what we ended up with.The first match is like a normal GSM match. The others are considered "Fun Matches". They are a little different than the standard matches. It seems a shame to have such a great range (where you can fire 200/300/600yds) and but utilize only the 200yd part. For this series you will fire matches at 200, 300, and also 600yds. It's not an "all or nothing match". If you don't want to shoot one of the distances....DON'T!

The last one you fire (only) a Garand at 600yds. I do it and have my dope. Lots of guys don't. So...it's only fair to give those guys ample sighters. Not sure if he decided on unlimited sighters in 5 minutes or 5 sighter rounds or what??? Don't let 600yds with a Garand intimidate you. It is MORE than capable of shooting good scores at that distance. Notice that the "Fun Matches" are NOT a long drawn out match. They are short strings and are intended to maximize your shooting without going home dog tired.

I don't work for CMP and am not representing the CMP. Don simply asked a friend and fellow shooter an opinion. Any official CMP questions should be directed toward Leon at his email address. If I have mis-spoken I'm sure I'll be corrected soon. If you don't have fun at this match, you ain't tryin' very hard...!

Per CMP description, looks like your 03 would fit in the #2 match.

If this is the match Don was talking about last Saturday after the Carbine Match, he said to show up at 8:30 a.m.

OK, Don just called me and I have a little more info:

Registration starts at 8:30, shooting should start by 9:30.

You pay 20 bucks and shoot ALL 4 matches (can't beat that price!).

Don't let the 600yd match worry you. You will have unlimited sighters in 5 minutes. If you aren't on target at the end of that 5 minutes, I'd bet Don will extend it a few minutes.

This will be a low stress and friendly match. There will be enough experienced shooters there to help coach some of the newer shooters. I hope there is a good turnout!

thanks, Keith Schachle

Don said we will shoot whatever everyone wants to shoot. Also it's sort of a clinic for new competitors.

That's why I like shooting their matches. Laid back and fun. Heck, they might even feed u a ham sammich..

Just wish I didn't have to work this weekend.

Hey Shane, please tell them hello for me,
