    We will be having another Lewis Class Shoot at Redlands on March 16th. Sign ups at 8:30, shooting at 9:00.

    Our first two shoots have been very well received and we are hoping for 60 shooters to come out and have some great fun and shoot for some nice checks.

    The basic format is to shoot 50 targets and then divide the scores into Lewis classes. By example, with 60 shooters we would divide the scores into three classes representing the top 20 scores, the middle 20 scores and the bottom 20 scores. We then take the top 5 scores in each class and those 5 shooters shootoff for their class purse. Because the purse contribution is $10, each class would be shooting for $200 divided 75/25 between the class champ and class runnerup. The cool part of this format is that the shooter who posts the 45th best score shoots for the same amount of money as the shooters who run 50 straights but he's in a shootoff against the shooters who posted the 40th-44th best scores.

    The fun comes in because we shootoff right after each 50 target qualifier and everyone gets to watch the 5 shooters in each class pucker up for some real money.

    Because we use the Lewis system to fill the shootoffs, our shooters don't have to have established averages or yardages so we get all types of shooters looking to have some fun competition. So if you are in SoCal, come out and join us. If your club would like to run this type of shoot to get some targets in the air and offer all club members a chance to compete, PM us and we can tell you how the scoring works.

    Everyone is welcome to come out and shoot with us on Saturday. You don't need an average or an assigned yardage as our shootoff participants are decided by the scores that are shot in the qualifier events. All skill levels have a chance of earning a check like these.

    It is the 16th. Gary evidently will be there a week later so that he can place first. LOL

    Yep, Charlie, it is going to be a typical, beautiful day at Redlands. Our new format will be easier to run and less expensive to participate in fully. Based upon pre-squads it's going to be a good turn out so the checks should deliver a really good "pucker factor" for the shootoff qualifiers.

    Good fun, good people, good competition and a good time. All are welcome regardless of skill level because you don't need an average or an HC yardage. Just be one of the top 5 scores in one of the Lewis classes and your in the shootoff.

    Sign up at 8:30, we'll start shooting at 9:00. You don't have to pre-squad but we start 4 fields at a time so don't arrive too much past 9:00.
