TL;DR – Summer Shooting Leagues! Need input below!!!🌞🔫😎

So, we are hoping there is enough interest to have a shooting league for June, July, & Aug. of 2022.

Here is what we are planning:
-3 months of competitions (June, July, & Aug 2022)
-Each month will have 3 courses of fire.
-Each month, the 3 courses of fire will be cut across 3 weeks (1 course of fire per week).
-You must shoot at least 2 of the 3 weeks to qualify for the monthly prizes. If you shoot all 3 weeks, you keep your 2 best scores and drop your worst (only 2 of the 3 weekly scores will count each month).
-Each entry will cost approximately $20.
-Each month, we will have 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place prizes for the top 3 scores (1st place will be approx. $100 value).
-After the 3 months are over, we will give prizes to the top 3 accumulated scores across the 3-month span (1st place will be approx. $400 value).
-We will make the courses of fire shootable for optics or irons, so more people can compete as they see fit. This will all be done stationary. There will be no drawing from a holster.

What we are asking from you:
1. A) Would you prefer a set day & time once a week that everybody meets & shoots?

OR

B) Would you prefer to be able to come in anytime during business hours once a week to complete your course of fire?

2. A) Would you like the same course of fire for the entire month (so you get 3 shots at it)?

OR

B) Would you like a new course of fire each week?

Thank you again to everyone who joined us last week at our Shredded Party! We had so much fun and we hope you did, too! If you haven't heard yet, together with our RB match, we raised over $2300 for Americares and the crisis in Ukraine. Since every $10 donated can provide $200 in aid, that means we can provide over $46,000 in aid with these very kind donations!! Words cannot express our gratitude to our family of clients and our Jackson community for this outpouring of support for our global community in need. In addition, we were able to fill up the shred truck over 72% of the way! It's awesome that we were able to keep so many documents safe, sound and out of the wrong hands. A special thank you to our vendors and local community partners as well for helping make this event such a success: MDK Group, Whiskey Jacks BBQ, Jackson County Airport - Reynolds Field, NewsTalk 970 / 101.5, Jackson County Chamber of Commerce
