Happy New Year to All. With just a little bit of luck this year may prove to be less challenging than last. Time will tell.
Our match schedule for 2021 will be:
June 12 and 13, 2021 for the Michigan State 1000 yd. Championship; July 10 and 11, 2021 for the Michigan State Long Range Championship; August 13, 2021 for the Michigan State Long Range Team Match Championships; and August 14 and 15, 2021 for the Michigan Long Range / F-Class Regional.
All these matches will be held at the Marksmanship Training Center located in Lake City, MI. The programs for these events will be published in the near future. There will be a couple changes within administrative policies for all of these matches this year. In particular, a paid registration will be required to reserve a spot for a match. In addition to this, the cancellation policy that will be in place will read as follows:
‘Notice of cancellation made to the Match Director seven (7) days prior to the initial match date will be refunded 90% of the entry fee. Cancellations made within seven (7) days of the initial date of an event, including “NO SHOWS” the day of the event will not be refunded their match entry fee.’
These policies will help ensure that as many people that would like to shoot will have that opportunity. I look forward to seeing you all very soon, and as always I would like to thank the numerous people that are involved in putting these matches together. Stay safe.
