Recommended Posts

The Platte Valley Gunslingers are excited to announce that today we received the official word from SASS that we have been chosen to host the 2018 Nebraska State Championship. The match will be held at Heartland Public Shooting Park on April 13-15, 2018. It has been a few years since we have been able to host a State Match, and we are honored to accept the challenge. We have quite a few fun events planned for everyone.

 

Details will be available soon on our website, www.plattevalleygunslingers.com as well as our Facebook page

 

We have camping with hookups available, and we have plenty of dry camping for those that do not need/desire hookups

 

Planning is ongoing, but our tentative schedule is as follows:

 

-Friday April 13: 4 warmup stages and side matches-long range match rifle, long range single shot, long range big bore lever rifle, derringer, pocket pistol, speed pistol, speed rifle, speed shotgun, and 5x5 (NOTE: pistol will be scored separately by shooting style-traditional, duelist, gunfighter, and shotgun will be scored separately by type-SxS, SxS hammered, 97, and 87). 6:00pm we will have a potluck/movie night at the clubhouse

-Saturday April 14: 6 main match stages. Banquet in the evening with door prizes and side match awards

-Sunday April 15: Final four main match stages and awards after lunch

 

Banquet and lunches on Saturday and Sunday are included in the match fees

 

A special thanks to Wild West Arms for being so generous as to provide the funds to pay for the match banners we have ordered.

 

This will be a good warmup for those coming to the central U.S. to attend Land Run the following weekend. Hope to see you here!

 

The Showdown on the Prairie!

For those who are considering coming out to the 2018 Nebraska State SASS Championship, I came home from the Roughrider Roundup to find a package in the mailbox from River Junction Trading Company. They were very generous to our shooters, and donated a ton of coupons, so many in fact, that we will not be drawing names for them. We will be putting them into shooter packs as entries come in, until we run out. So, if you ever wanted to order from them, please get your entries in so you don't miss out on these generous coupons!

I hear tell that FIVE states are already represented in the early entries!  And more entries coming in every week!

 

Get those entries in folks, I have a feeling this match is gonna sell out!

 

You don't want to miss out on all the FUN!

 

I got my entry in, do you?

A few shooters have asked me when we will put up the "Who's Coming" list for the state match. I know more are in the mail after last weekend, so the current plan is to put up the page on the club website after the Hero match in a few weeks. Thanks to all who were asking, and have a great day

I've heard that the list of nice door prize donations is growing faster than the shooter list!  Best get your entry in and join in the fun and share in the loot!
