Scholarship Charity Challenge Mini-Match
Open to the public. **
ncjacc160
Bring your eye and ear/hearing protection and your gear to the range on the afternoon of Monday, November 9.  The one-stage mini-match for the benefit of the IALEFI Scholarship Fund will be held again.  $5 for a single shoot, $20 to shoot five times.  12 rounds and one reload are required per run.

Usually three winners are selected to share a portion of the collected money.  This year there will be other prizes and all of the collections are going to the Scholarship Fund.  The winners are selected by dividing the sorted list of finished time-scores into three equal parts and picking the first name on each list.  October 12 Update: So far we have six trophies for match winners.  The top three will each get one, then the listed will be “folded” into quarters and the first name below the three folds will also get one.

** If you are a “qualified” shooter – Security, Law Enforcement, Corrections Officer, “Competition” (IDPA, USPSA/IPSC) or “match” shooter – please join us in this mini-NCJA Charity Challenge.  You do not have to be an Instructor or Conference Attendee to join us in this skills test and fund-raiser.  You do have to be qualified (please, self-assess) as there will be over 100 Firearms Instructors on hand to make sure you are safe.  You must be able to safely draw from your holster and reload.
