*SASS Rules Apply. Must be a SASS member to shoot this match. Raw time scoring. Mail your registration before before April 10 to get the best deal. (But late entries are still welcome!) See Registration form for details.

Because of the need to manage posse flow, we cannot accommodate shoot-throughs. However if there are enough shooters to necessitate morning and afternoon relays, it may be possible to assign a shooter to both a morning and an afternoon posse on the same day.

In previous years Camp fires were permitted in the camping area but ONLY in a portable fire pit. We are not sure about this year yet. The policy LAST YEAR was:
Fires must be in a container that holds fire off the ground.
Must have a screen / spark arrestor above the fire.
Area beneath the fire unit must be cleared of grass, debris etc. Please be safe & responsible!


Montego would be happy to repair any website issues
