If you are camping, we have plenty of dry camping space available but our hookup spots are down to eight as of right now (water/electric). If you want hookups, I would advise calling the park during their normal business hours at 308-385-5048 to reserve a slot. They usually go quickly.

 

More info available on the club website and Facebook page, and we are working on adding a few extras to be announced later. We are already getting door prize promises, and Hornady has signed on as match sponsor with a promised donation of $1500+ in product. We look forward to hosting you. Please let me know if you have any questions

We are down to 5 slots with hookups for camping not spoken for at the park. We have an alternative location at the state fair grounds, but if you want to camp at the park with hookups, I would recommending calling to reserve at 308-385-5048 and ask for Steven

 

If you want to dry camp instead, no worries. We have tons of room for that with 420 acres on the property

We just received word that once again, Hats by Grizz is donating a gift certificate for a hand made custom cowboy hat to one shooter. Good luck, and you will not be disappointed. Love my Grizz hat.

For those that are coming out to attend the 2019 Nebraska State SASS Championship, if you are looking for hotel accommodations, we now have a host hotel. Boarders Inn and Suites is offering a special rate for our shooters, and in addition, will be donating a portion of every shooters' room fees back to the park as a donation to allow us to continue to expand the shooting sports here in Central Nebraska. For more info, or to book a room, call 308-384-5150 and ask for Pam. Be sure to say that you are coming out for the cowboy shoot to get the best rate. This hotel is also very near the banquet facility

I've heard mutterings around the camp fire that the hardworking folks with the Platte Valley Gunslingers are already hard at work getting things ready for this match, even though it's months away.  New props are being built, older ones refurbished, and all sorts of other stuff!

 

Get your entries in folks, this is gonna be an awesome match!

Only about 5 weeks away now!

 

Get those entries in folks!

 

And it would probably be wise to message Stirrup and let him know that you are coming so that he can make sure to have awards and banquet details finalized.
