Welcome to Vortex presents…TN Rimfire’s The Night Match Before Christmas

Range Address: 2613 TN-270, Chapel Hill, TN 37034

Match Details:

Please be aware, this match is a NRL22X match and will be a NIGHT MATCH. The match will contain a portion of daytime stages and nighttime stages. To ensure fairness across the daytime/nighttime stages, all competitors will shoot the same stages in the daylight and all competitors will shoot the same stages in the dark. 

Every shooter will receive a fun and challenging match with dedicated Range Officers on every stage, 2 glow bracelets at check-in, a commemorative night match ornament, night match commemorative gear or apparel, a match meal, snacks, hot cocoa, and a prize table walk. 

Night vision is allowed but not required. Night Match Format Targets will be illuminated with white lights. Shooters are not allowed to use white lights at any time throughout the match in order to preserve everyone’s night sight; however, shooters are allowed to use glow sticks or red or green LED lights. Since everything but the targets will be dark, an illuminated reticle is highly recommended. The props at the firing line will be minimally illuminated with either Christmas lights, glow sticks, or red lights. A headlamp may be helpful but remember it cannot be white light and it must be red or green illumination. 

Stages: 10-12 

Rounds Count:

150 rounds + extra for zero & practice 

Zero Range There will be paper at 50, 75, and 100 yards. Steel will be available at 100, 200, and 300 yards. 

Range Officers:

Dedicated RO’s are a key component of high quality matches. They increase fairness across all of the squads and remove the burden of a competitor having to be the squad RO. Competitors who participate in a match with dedicated RO’s have an entirely different match experience. Competitors love that their only responsibility is shooting, socializing with their friends, and having a good time. This match will have dedicated RO’s running every stage to ensure that all competitors can concentrate on having fun and ensure all squads are run through each stage in the same manner as the other squads. RO’s will have the opportunity to shoot this match as a NRL22X Companion Match the day prior and will have the opportunity to earn points towards their NRL22X points race. 


RO’s will however be integrated into the prize table walk following the match on Saturday. Experienced, dedicated RO’s will elevate the match experience for everyone. Please consider working as an RO and please respect all RO’s who volunteered to make this a better match experience for all competitors. 

RO Benefits RO’s will be allowed to shoot the match for free, still receive NRL22X RO points, trophies, meals, match apparel, compensation from fundraiser raffles, and prize table walks for volunteering their time and effort. 

RO Requirements RO’s must be experienced NRL/PRS competitors. All RO’s must be comfortable watching for safety and proper stage execution. RO’s must be comfortable spotting and calling impacts or running the tablet. RO’s that want to shoot must be available Friday afternoon through Saturday evening. I’ll still allow you to go to the hotel or go home and sleep etc but you must be available for both days. 😉 If you don’t want to shoot the match but you would still like to volunteer as an RO, then you only need to be available on Saturday from 10am to Midnight.
