After getting squared away with check-in at the 2019 CAAFTC and some practice rounds on Friday, take part in the Pistol Match and the Quigley Bucket Challenge.
The Quigley Bucket Challenge requires shooters to hit a 1.75 inch target from 55 yards away. Oh that’s from a standing position, with open sights and a 12 Ft/Lbs-limited air rifle, on what’s usually a windy course. No pressure!!!
Registered competitors are invited to stay for drinks and hors d’oeuvres that Friday evening where they can network and chat with people interested in the sport.
All two-day registered competitors will receive a surprise gear bag and 3 lunch vouchers.
