MD: Ruth Soucie, Justin Carbone

Location: Rush Lake Range, New York Mills, Minnesota

Cost: $85

Registration: April 23 – June 10th, 2021

We are incredibly honored to be hosting this NRL22X match for the second year in a row. As shooters ourselves, we strive to host matches that are both fun and challenging. Stages will be deigned to push the limits of shooters and rifles both, so be prepared for a challenging course of fire.

Lunch, snacks, and bottled water will be provided the day of the match. Please reach out via phone or email (listed below) if you have any dietary restrictions and we will do our best to accommodate them.

Fee includes: Snacks, Water, Lunch at the match, Match Shirt and other “goodies”

100% of money made at the match is going to cover the costs of the match and range fees, any remaining balance goes to support our future matches, new shooter clinics, and loaner rifles.

Round count will be 150+ for the match, but bring more for zeroing, malfunctions, etc.

Target distances will be between 25-300 yards for the majority of the match, with one stage that will have one target beyond 500 yards (specific distance will be based on breaking the ELR Central world record at the time of the match).

We have put significant time and effort into providing a prize table for this match. The industry is struggling to keep up with demand and there has been a sharp decrease in sponsors’ abilities to support matches this season. We will be asking folks to please post to social media and/or send thank you cards (we have provided) to our sponsors who have gone above and beyond to provide us a very nice prize table this year. Prize table walking order will be a combination of place finished and random draws. Top 3 overall and class winners walk the table first, followed by alternation between a random draw and the next highest match finisher, until all shooters have walked the table. ROs will have some prizes slated just for them. Any RO not drawn for a prize prior will be added to the random shooter pool and will walk the prize table in the order they are drawn.

Range Officer (RO) opportunity We feel strongly that a big key to a high-quality match is to have good RO’s. Good RO’s bring consistency to the stages for a fair competition. We are looking for willing RO’s to participate. RO’s will eat free, will receive a door prize bundle, will walk the prize table with the rest of the shooters, and will receive appreciation and respect from the match directors and the shooters. RO’s will also be given the opportunity to shoot the course of fire on Friday. This will give them the opportunity to shoot the match, as well as allow them to become accustomed with the stages. If you are new to precision rifle competitions, ROing this match will be an excellent opportunity to get experience shooting with help from match directors, as well as experience spotting bullet impacts through spotting scopes. To RO, please reach out via phone or email (listed below).
