Well it’s official: we’re less than a week away from our first match of the season as well as this will be our inaugural for going to electronic targets. I’ve got to say the amount of work that the Michigan F-TR have been doing to prep targets and get things ready for this match has been absolutely incredible. If you are one of these people that believes in the long range weather forecast its beginning to look like mother nature is going to be with us as well.
Just a couple things as reminders: If you haven’t done so PLEASE REGISTER AND PAY ON LINE. This is the only way I have to track the number of shooters that are registered for the match. As of right now, there are still spaces available. As said earlier, these are electronic targets. They do require a means of connecting. Whether it is a notepad, cell phone, or other, this will be required to be supplied by you, the competitor. MRPA will not be supplying these devices. Additionally, I would recommend an external battery pack just to help get through the day. And then, Last but not Least, remember to charge these devices every night before the match so they’ll be ready when you need them. I’m really looking forward to this transition in hopes that we can make everyone’s day at the match more enjoyable. I expect to be squadding from 7 to 7:30 a.m. on Saturday May 4, 2019. Please dress appropriately. And if you have not been to the MTC facility, you will need a range cart as the parking lot is not immediately adjacent to the firing line.
Thank You once again to everyone involved and your patience in making this transition is and will be greatly appreciated.
