    If you are interested in helping RO, please contact me. We will provide your room and meals for the weekend. If you can assist us with setup between the 5-7th, you can shoot some of the stages when we finalize and proof them. Range staff will NOT be shooting the match (not possible with the PRS format).


    Q: Can I get a copy of the course of fire (CoF)?

    No. CoF in PRS matches is always different at every match. The only stages that are known in advance are the PRS skills stages in the rulebook. There are 4 of them, and 1 of them will be in the match. A match booklet will be given out to all of the competitors Friday evening with descriptions of each stage. It will contain a brief description of the stage, the target engagement sequence, the number of shooting positions, the number of shots on each target and the distances of each target. Here is an example from another match (we don't have a shoot house):

    Shoot House Shuffle

    Prep time: none
    Stage time: 90 seconds

    Stage Description: Your time will begin once you break the threshold of the second flood door. Starting at the base of the stairs, on the command of "Engage" shooter will move up and engage T1 , T2 and T3 with 1 round each from 3 different positions. Targets must be engaged in that sequence at each position. Load in your first firing position.

    Points possible: 9 (1 point per hit)
    Round count: 9

    T1 - 100% IPSC - 714 yards
    T2 - Head Flapper - 234 yards
    T3 - 66% IPSC - 455 yards

    You won't know what the stage looks like or what the shooting positions are until you get to the stage and the RO gives the stage briefing. Some people prepare their trajectories the night before. Others do it after the stage briefing. It's up to you.

    Q: Will there be any unknown distances (UKD)?

    No. All of the distances will be listed in the match booklet.

    Q: I'm shooting a 223/308, will it be enough to shoot this match?

    The majority of stages will be between 300 and 800 yards. Only one or two will be at 1000 yards or more.

    Will I need to walk, run or carry my gear over large distances?

    No. All of the stages will be on two artillery pads. Some stages will only have positions changes on one barricades. Others, may require 5-10 yards of movement at most.
    *Multiple stages will be running simultaneously.

    Will I be shooting both days?

    Yes. You will be in a squad. That squad will move to a stage and each shooter will have a turn at shooting the stage. When all of the shooters in your squad have completed the stage, the squad will move on to the next stage and repeat the process. All squads will be shooting on both days. There will be one person form each squad shooting at any given time.

    Q: Do I need to buy a PRS membership to shoot this match?
