How many times do you get to shoot for your $3 entry? Is it single elimination?

What do you mean by "8 man relay"?

Thanks.

Thanks. How do you determine who knocks their plates down first? Do you use stop plates or does an RO make the call?

Hi Cuz. We have 2-3 RO's on the line watching and we have had a few times where it was simply too close to call. In those cases we simply had the shooters go against each other again.

We use an 8-man "J-ladder" as illustrated in the older USPSA/IPSC rule books. Single elimination for each 8-person relay. You pay $3 to enter a relay. We pay $6 to the winner and $3 to second place. Once you win a relay, you get an extra target (US Popper) for subsequent entries. So If I win a relay, I get an extra target for the night. If I win another relay, I get TWO extra targets to shoot, and so on. Helps even things out.
Are you going to bring Jake?

Thanks for the lowdown. It's too difficult to get him up there on a school night. Maybe we'll try for Feb or April vacation. We have to revamp our whole shooting schedule for the season now that two of our favorite clubs (independent and NB) no longer have matches. Going to have to journey out to Hopkinton and Harvard.

another great night of shooting, a little bloody, but still a great night! ( side note, next time check the OAL on the new load, before loading up the clips, and attempting to load up at the table, yes i feel like an idiot!)

Is that why the revo wouldn't index? Oh well. Bring those loads on Sunday. [grin]

I'm planning to hold three more plate matches while we are still all buried in snow. 2/25, 3/11, and 4/1.
