2018 LRC FPR Club Series Finale & Season Awards Gathering

Finale Results at link below!

LRC Competitors,
Our Season Finale will be Held on December 1st with Shooters Meeting starting at 8am, rounds down range by 8:30. Cost is only $60 as we have not had the time to round up a ton of sponsors. Defiance Machine will be donating a cert or two, Schnee's has promised a couple items and likely there will be couple more.
This is a stand alone match with Trophies for Top 3 Overall and Top Hunter as well as determining our 2018 season champions.

Registration Link: Please if you are planning to attend get registered ASAP so we can plan accordingly! You are not required to pay to get registered due to a small chance of extreme weather causing a cancelation. However please log back in to Practiscore a few days before match to pay as doing so will increase efficiency Saturday Morning. Thanks!

**Practiscore Details to know**
    1-Be sure to enter your first and last names correctly: Example- Glen Demaray 
          It must be the same every time you register or it will not credit your season standings properly!
    2-Select the proper Division. Precision or Hunter
    3- Select the proper Classes. Exp, Novice, Senior, Rookie, Junior and Lady. Note that you should select Rookie if it's your first full season of competition and this should be selected along with your Novice/Senior/Junior or Lady Class. 

Note that this season we had zero Ladies and only one Junior compete in more than one match so no awards will be given in these classes. :( We really need to round up more Junior and Lady shooters! Tyler Wood shoot two Precision and One Hunter so he's eligible for top Hunter only.

Season Awards and LRC Potluck Social will be held Sunday December 2nd from 1pm till 4pm with Trophy Presentation to start around 2pm. Don Schmidt has graciously opened his home to the LRC Community for this event, please be sure to thank him! Also let me know what food items or dish you can supply so we can keep this a low cost event, thank you. Directions to Don's will be sent to all LRC Members and season competitors.

Below are the current season standings going into the finale! (Note that your 3 highest scores plus the finale will determine your end of year placements)(Hunters will use your single highest season score plus season finale score) Please review your points and let us know if you find any errors or just have questions.
I want to personally thank all of you for your continued support of the LRC Club Series and helping in all the hard work it takes to put these events on!

 Cost:$220 (no refunds)
Dates: September 8-9 Registration: Opens May 8th 
MATCH REGISTRATION LINK  Registration Closed Sept. 2nd at 11pm.
Round count will be 190-200 bring a few more to confirm zero, etc. Competitors will be able to check zero and drops at 100 yards, 400 yards and 700 yards on Friday the 7th from 2-7pm. (No other targets may be engaged at that time! Doing so will result in a match DQ!!) This is also the time for early check in though that will last till 8pm. Shooters arriving early Saturday can check in between 6:30 and 7:15 am.
There will be 10 field stages shot by everyone on day one’s COF at LRC. Day two will be 8 stages (9 if we exceed 80 shooters) facing the opposite direction which will be more quickly paced and require increased positional and time management skills. This should add some excitement to finish out the competition. The highest round count stage will be 15 and require a mag change with 10-11 rounds being average.
The only equipment restrictions are caliber, velocity and no more than 2 support bags. This means only 2 bags per shooter during engagement of any stage. Bags are limited to 12” cubed! Backpacks will almost always be allowed for shooting support.
The speed limit is 3,200fps for all calibers, chamberings allowed for this match range from 223Rem to 300WM. If at anytime your speeds are in question, you will shoot through a LabRadar or Ohler 35 to verify your speed. If it’s over speed then it will constitute an automatic DQ, no refunds will be given.
There will be only one match brief at the beginning of each day. You will start as a squad and move from stage to stage as a squad. We may provide squad cards to simplify proper rotation of the shooting order with in each squad. Example: Stage 1 shooter order is A-B-C, Stage 2 shooter order is B-C-A and so on as squads progress through each stage.
The COF will be simple and if you have any questions your R/O will answer them before you are put on the clock.
You will want to book Hotels early as Three Forks can get really busy with Archery Hunters coming in for the early season. Bozeman and Belgrade are also within 45minuts and have lots of hotels. Dry camping will be available on site, $20 for RV’s and $10 for Tents, please contact us with your intent as it will be on a first come basis. We can fit 12-18 RV’s on site!
Check in and Zero will be Friday Sept 7 starting at 2pm on the LRC Primary Shooting Facility. Friday is the only day you can check zero and the LRC Facility will go cold at 7pm for any last minute COF corrections. Competitors will receive the course of fire Booklets at check in.
You may sell your slot to another competitor but please inform us immediately via email and pass along all of their contact info!
Know your PRS Rule Book! It will be the shooters responsibility to honor the rules. LRC also has our own clarifications on positional rules, we will be sending those attached in our next email and posting them on our Article Page (Blog).

2018 LRC FPR Competition #3   "Results Link Posted Below"

We had a fun 3rd event for 2018! The day started with 25 shooters, sun, little wind and 60' temps. As the day progressed wind only picked up slightly but the 90' heat, mirage and variable conditions caused plenty of challenge! We finished up match awards by 2:30pm with a very successful second run of using the Practiscore Scoring System. When it works it's certainly a great tool for making a match run smoothly and efficiently. Thanks again everyone for participation, with out your involvement these events would not be possible!

Gongrats to our top finishers!

2nd Tim Lund
