    Douglas Ridge Rifle Club will be putting on a .22 Fun Steel Match on Sat Oct 12th from 9a-2p.

    We will be using the Ruger Rimfire Challenge rules.

    Here's a flyer to help get the word out: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3fbTeLjnPFDdVpDMVgzd3JCd0E/edit?usp=sharing

    This will be the inaugural event; if this goes well, DRRC will consider adding this as a new discipline next year and hold regular matches with the goal of hosting a sanctioned match next year.

    Free hot dog lunch (donations appreciated) and, if I can drum up some prizes, maybe even a raffle - details to come.

    Hope to see you out there :thumbup:

    Looks like fun.

    Looks like some young'ns in the video.

    Generically I think 8 is about right but we aren't carding anyone. If you think your young gun can safely shoot the targets then bring them on out. There will be someone right next to all shooters to help maintain safety. The targets will be big and close (90% of the shooters should be able to hit 90% of the targets 90% of the time).

    Is there a deadline for signing up? I'd like to go, but I'll have to get time off to do it.

    I wasn't planing to do a pre-registration. (perhaps a mistake on my part) I'm hoping for 40 shooters. I think I can run 4 squads at a time, 5 to a squad. Strings should be able to rotate every 30 min if things run as smoothly as I hope. 2-2.5 hours to run the full course (8 strings). 2nd wave of shooters starting around 11-11:30 plus lunch. Since not everyone will want to shoot all 8 strings I'm hoping to rotate shooters into squads as positions open up so there won't be a huge wait.

    Looking forward to it,and will tell like-mnded friends about it. If I were you i'd have contingency plans for a big turnout,. Maybe a 'show of hands' in mid Sept here on the forum ? speed steel at tcgc draws big crowds.

    I'm starting to work on some prizes :thumbup: OFA, Steel Horse Customs and CCI will all be represented on the prize table.

    My goal is to have prizes for:
    Top overall shooter (must shoot all 8 strings, 4 w/pistol, 4 w/rifle)
    Top Pistol
    Top Rifle
    Top Manual Action (pump, bolt or single action revolver)
    Top Woman
    Top Youth (<16)
    Top Sr (55+)

    Depending on much I drum up for prizes, each string you shoot will enter you into a raffle for anything left on the prize table.

    A couple of donations have found me - if you've got something you're willing to donate please let me know.

    On the rifle part, can I use my 25rd mags loaded to 10? Or do I have to go buy a few stock 10rd mags?

    According to the rules, you can use a 25 round mag loaded with 10 rounds.

    5.3 of the rule book says you may use high capacity magazines but they can not be loaded with more than 10 rounds. This is an area we will stray from the RRC rules. Load em up to save time reloading.

    We will, however, follow the 4.1 rule that gives a 30 sec penalty for firing more than 11 rounds so shooter beware. In the future if we run a sanctioned match we will have to abide by all of the rules including 5.3.
