A field with benches and blue walls

Required: Safety Glasses and hearing protection for all competitors and spectators. Rules are simple: the first person to clear their five-pin heads or bowling pins off the table and on the ground is the winner of that head-to-head match and advances. Each shooter competes against a fellow shooter, with the winner advancing to the upper bracket and the loser going to the lower bracket. After a loss in the lower bracket, the shooter is out of the money tournament for that particular division. For those shooters with one win or less, when there are 8 or more in the original division bracket, they will be placed in the consolation bracket. Shooting continues until a final winner is determined in each division for the day. Shooters can sign up for any or all of the divisions listed. There is no limit to the number of rounds, so come to the line with the loaded magazines or speed loaders that you think you may need.

Pin-shooting is fun, competitive, practical shooting that sharpens one's handgun and rifle skills. While winning is obviously rewarding, all pin-shooters can expect an event that will improve their skills in the company of fellow shooters who are supportive. The entry fee is $10.00 for each division you choose to participate in; enter all or any combination. Juniors pay one entry fee and can compete in any division. Each division tournament bracket is made up of blind seed double elimination head-to-head matches. The payout for 1st and 2nd place is based on the number of paying competitors in each division. This is a great spectator sport and great fun for the shooters; we encourage juniors and ladies.
