This is a great match at a beautiful range located in the Colorado Rockies.   If you have questions feel free to post on this thread, IM, or Email me.  I generally check here daily.

I think I have managed to get this match all setup in practiscore.  I am still learning the software so let me know if you see something incorrect.  Sign up is open...

Hey folks, everything looks good for the Match on Sunday.

If you have never been to Buffalo Creek Gun Club please visit their website https://bcgc.com/ and take note of the directions to the range.

The range is secluded in the mountains with limited Cell coverage, and finding it can be challenging. Read the directions closely.

I will see all of you there.
