B.A.R. Firelock Match, Old Saratoga Muzzle loading Club
September 16 - September 17Free
On Friday the 9th we will start setting up camp. You can arrive as early as 9 AM or as late as you wish. If you plan on coming on Saturday arrive around 9 am. There will be someone to help you get settled. The Match will start on Saturday 10 am sharp. Saturday is an individual competition. Certificates will be for High Aggregate, the total score for rifle, musket and pistol targets. You don’t have to shoot all three to qualify for high aggregate. Two of the three is all that is necessary. There will also be certificates awarded for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd in rifle and 1st, 2nd, & 3rd in musket. We are working hard on a number of non‐paper, novelty targets for you to try, maybe for light competition or maybe just for fun. There will be a woods walk with iron silhouettes, a tomahawk/knife throw, and a “split the ball on an axe blade and break two targets with the same ball” deal. We will be doing the woods walk as a “blanket shoot” so bring an item of no more than $20 value to put on the blanket, drawing will be by order of finish. We are also working on a Trap shoot. We will have lead shot, clay birds and wads for those who want to try their luck. You will need to supply your own powder, just bring some of the blanks you would use at events. Volunteers to help man some of these events are welcomed. Let us know ahead of time if you can. For the team competitions, four person teams will compete. There will be 5 events each for rifle and musket teams. Most targets will be a variety of breakables and knock downs. Of course there will be festive fellowship on Saturday night.
