High Power Rifle Matches

The following is the format for all monthly High Power matches, except the M1 match in January which is an abbreviated version of the following course of fire. Competition is open to all, but those participants never having fired in a High Power match before will need to report to the Match Director prior to the match for introductory and safety training. All new competitors must sign a new liability waiver.

For further information, contact the Match Director, John Bowers via phone at (770) 787-7949 (before 2100 hours please) or email john_bow@bellsouth.net

Note:  For safety reasons, no participants will be allowed to ‘walk up’ and shoot a match without the participant first assuring the Match Director of his or her knowledge of safety procedures and protocols.
