Where: Arcadia Marksmanship Club
When: Sunday July 28. 2:00 p.m.

From the ready position at the first stage, you have six rounds to shoot at six metl plates that hang from metal posts. Five seconds are added for each plate missed.
For the second stage, you move through three positions. At the first position, you shoot at three profile targets at about 10 to 15 yards. The best two shots per target will be counted. The goal is to hit each target twice within the center two rings. One second is added if the target is hit between the second and third rings. Three seconds are added if the target is hit outside the third ring. If the target is hit only once, five seconds will be added. If the target is not hit at all, ten seconds will be added. Parts of two of the targets may be marked as "hostages." Any shots within these areas will add five seconds. You may take as many shots as you like, but remember, this is a timed event.
The clock is running as you move to the second position, where you shoot a series of four large steel plates at about 10 to 15 yards. There may also be "hostage" plates-five seconds is added for each hostage plate knocked over.
The third position is similar to the first position, with you shooting at another series of four large plates with "hostages" at about 10 to 15 yards. Timing ends when the last plate drops.
In the third stage you have five minutes to fire six rounds from a bench rest at target 50 yards away. Scoring will be similar to that for the other targets, with time being added for shots outside the inner two rings. If you get all six rounds within the two center rings, you'll have a perfect score of zero additional seconds.
Winners and Volunteers
There will be a winner for each stage, and there will be an over all winner; but be ready to do more than win. If there is a good turn out, we may need you as a volunteer judge on one of these stages so we can have all three events operating at once.
