Ground Hog Shoots starting Sunday, April 24, 2016

Hello Fellow Sportsmen,

We are going to try something new at the Tiadaghton Sportsmen's Association: Groundhog Shoots!!
They will be held the last Sunday of the month starting Sunday April 24, 2016 through October 2016.

The first one on Sunday, April 24, 2016 will run as follows:  Registration will be held from 9:00 am through 10:00 am with shooting starting at 10:15 am after a brief safety instruction and rules session.

Pre-registration can be done at Goodman's Arms LLC 570-295-5894.  They will also answer any additional questions you may have.
  • There will be two classes of shooters: 1. Factory   2. Modified
  • Shooters will shoot 3 targets; 1 at 100 yards, 1 at 200 yards and 1 at 300 yards
  • Shooters will be allowed unlimited sighters in a timeframe, and 5 shots for record.
  • Scoring will be all 3 targets combined for score with a max score of 225 points.
  • Tie breakers will be determined by the smallest measured group at 200 yards.
RULES EXPLAINED

  • Factory class will be any rifle with factory stock, barrel, and action.  Muzzle attachments will be allowed along with aftermarket triggers.  Any optic or sights allowed.  Modified class will be any rifle aftermarket barrel, action, and stock.  Any optic or sights allowed.  All factory or build semi auto rifles will be classified as a Factory gun.  Both classes will be allowed any rest option they would like as long as it is two separate rest, No 1 piece rest ex (led sled).
  • Shooters will be allowed 5 minutes to setup rifle on bench which will be assigned at registration, NO SWITCHING ALLOWED.  There will be 2 minute setup to switch range.
  • Shooters will have three minutes unlimited sighters. (At each range)
  • Shooters will have three minutes for 5 shots on record. (At each range)
  • There are two bulls on each target. 1 in the head and 1 in the body.  Shooter can choose which to shoot at but must be aware of Scoring rules.
SCORING

There are two white Bulls.  1 in head is 3/4 inch and 1 in body at 1 1/2 inch, both have subsequent rings. Both are live targets and you choose which to shoot, however, the smaller head target will only be scored for hits on white Bull; the subsequent rings are scored as lowest body hits. The larger white Bull WILL count the rings for score.

Scoring as follows:
Smaller bull = 15 points
Larger bull = 10 points
Large ring = 8 points
Med ring = 6 points
Inside body = 2 points
Outside body = 0 points

Each group will have a designated range officer to assist in tine and to answer any questions you may have.  Call range officer if any complications occur.  Do not move or attempt to fix without first notifying the range officer.  Each shooter is allowed one spotter but they must remain behind the shooter at all times and cannot interfere with other shooters at any time.  If helping a child please make sure they are able to operate the weapons themselves and you are only there for their and others safety.

When you are done firing let the range officer know and stay at your station until entire line is finished with their string.  Once cease fire has been called, range officer will make sure all bolts are open and safe before removing from bench.  Scorers will then go down range to collect targets.

PRIZES

  • Each shooter will pay a $10 entry fee for first gun, and $5 per extra gun(s)
  • The club will receive $3 for every entered shooter for allowing use of facility and to cover insurance cost.
  • Each class will be counted and the remaining moneys will be split 70% for 1st and 30% for 2nd.
  • If there are less than 10 entries, there will only be a 1st payout of 100%. Example: 20 entry's = $200, Club gets $60 and payout for 1st would be $98 and 2nd would be $42.

The Club will also have food and beverages available.

EXTRA, EXTRA:

The clubhouse grounds have been used this past year for other things too. A local Boy Scout troop used the grounds for a weekend to camp and work outside to earn badges.  We even had one Boy Scout, LJ Boone, who completed his Eagle Scout Project by building and installing “Bat Boxes” on our clubhouse grounds.

 Another weekend, we had The Lycoming/Clinton County Young Marines complete an Encampment teaching them vital survival skills, like building their own shelters to sleep in over the weekend.  This allowed them to earn ribbons and awards.
