Put me down for two, "Goose" (8 years old) and "MidnightCootie" (10 years old, don't ask about the nick) will be burning some powder. Goose wants to know if she can shoot a .22-250 instead of a .22 Long rifle. She is 8 and shoots it amazingly well.

You are all very generous! Flinch

Flinch...we are going to have to leave this a .22 rimfire match....

Maybe I can adjust the age group to include her later this summer in the Centerfire Match for the older kids...I was going to run it 14 to 19 but maybe we can split that one up also into Two Age Groups like this one...I know my boy who is 10 would love to shoot my 25-06 in a match...If we get some more interest in that idea then we will do it....

Maybe an age group of 8 or 9 to 13...and the other group 14 to 19..??

For now though this match is to get the lesser experienced out and shooting and learning. Sounds like your girl will clean up in a Centerfire Match and this Rimfire Match as well....

I have one for the A group and one for the B group.

Just a thought but with all the wonderful donations being made would it make any sense to have prizes for a number of different places instead of all for first place?

I know that up here for some of the fishing tournaments they put some of the bigger prizes somewhere other then first to reduce the incentive to cheat by the fishermen. Pretty tough to know how big your fish needs to be to get third place.

Just a thought and I am most impressed by the generosity shown here!

The following are quotes from posts made on 3/27/06 at the Hunters Campfire regarding how the prize situation will be handled for this match...


Here's the thread .....



PLEASE, if anyone has any more input let me know....



Quote:

Just to let the Members know a couple more prizes have been added to the pot...here's the update with what we have so far...

This is a list of available prizes to be split amongst the place winners in each group. I haven't yet decided how to rank the prizes and maybe some input from those involved would be helpful.


Group A ages 5 to 9

- A scoped Savage 64FXP courtesy of Allen in Alaska ....


- A Hand Crafted very gorgous Hunting Knife w/sheath courtesy of Ranger1 ...




Group B ages 10 to 13

- A scoped Savage 64FXP courtesy of Allen in Alaska ....

- A Texas hunt for a Female Audad courtesy of TobyJoeTruby ...

-A Hand Crafted very gorgous Hunting Knife w/sheath courtesy of Ranger1 ...


VERY COOL folks.....


Hey!!! Lets get some more Young Shooters signed up for a shot at these cool prizes...!!

After some very knowledgable advice on this prize situation I feel it necessary that we allow as many of these kids to be rewarded in some way to make it fair for all, and to make it more desirable for them to compete without any discouragement knowing they will win something. Therefore I am going to split up the prizes to allow most if not all places to recieve a prize. 1st, 2nd, 3rd places ect.

I will do the very best I can to do a little leg work and come up with some more prizes to pay on down the line. I sincerely hope I haven't got anyones hopes up on a big payoff for this but I think it will be the most benificial if ALL the kids recieve something for their efforts....REMEMBER, it's not all about the prizes...it's about getting these kids educated and shooting so they can carry on our beloved traditions and heritage.


Bear with me while I edit the above posting.

Thanks,
Roy

My son's screen name will be Professor.

Professor came to the range with me two weekends ago. I was concerned when we got there because two guys were at the range heating up the barrels of their SKSs. I was afraid the noise would make him uneasy. I gave him plugs and muffs and he was ok with the racket. This was his first time shooting a .22. He shot about 30 rounds and then I had him put 10 into a paper plate. His first group almost covered the plate. I made some corrections to his form and had him shoot a 2nd group which was much better, around 2.5 - 3 inches. I thought that was pretty good for a first time to the range with a rifle that is to big for him. Most importantly he had a good time and we are going to go back soon.

I think it went really well as both my kids did it. If someone wants to coordinate, I'll pony up a prize or two.
