to fire 5 shots. All shooting for score is from the offhand
position. No slings, shooting gloves, or shooting jackets
The Silhouette league fee is $40.00. The league fee covers
the league banquet with door prizes. The Banquet is normally
held the first Saturday in December. An Associate Membership
is $10.00. Range Fees are $6.00 for Work Hour Members and
$8.00 for Members and Associate Members. The non-members range
fee is $20.00. If a Member or an Associate Member wishes to
participate in the High Power, Sporting Rifle or Small Bore
leagues, no additional league or membership fees will be charged.
All Range Fees include a $1.00 Environmental fee.
A competitor's highest 10 scores will be used to determine
league standings. Awards will be given to the high scorer
in the Master, AAA, AA, and B classes in both Smallbore Rifle
and Smallbore Hunting Rifle. Spotters are strongly encouraged,
as a competitor should not score his own card. Practice scores
may be shot, if it will not displace a competitor from the
line who is shooting for record. All record scorecards must
be turned in to the R.O. upon completion of the match.
NOTE: This is a lot more fun and relaxed than the formal rules
make it sound. Come and try it!
