Mike thanks for posting that.  It's not too far from where I live (Tulsa or Arkansas)...about 2 hours.

I plan on making the competition.  Anyone else here?

Who knows....maybe we'll see Alf there.  Mike are you thinking about attending...coronavirus and economy permitting?

I am planning sir.

I just heard about it today, and I have wanted to do Rimfire Challenge for years.  I have a nice MarkIII that just needs a red dot, and I have a 10/22 that with a new trigger group and red dot would work.  I also have a range that does monthly matches 85 miles from me - In Indiana on the Michigan border.

This is a game that if we still lived in Minnesota I would buy a set of plates (one stage worth) and set it up in my yard.  Sadly, those things don't fly in the big city.

October 9-11.  I'm going to have to practice some so I don't drag up the bottom.  I put a dot sight on the day of (when they had it at USSA) and boy was that a mistake....

Hey you guys.  A little birdie told me that MB has filming this Rimfire Challenge competition in Fort Smith on the schedule.

I hope the Coronamona is over before then. 

Mike and I are planning to be there.....

So many regional and national competitions that were scheduled for this spring have been moved to the fall.  Sept and October are just slammed with tournaments. 

I've already paid for slots at:

USPSA Rev nationals, Talladega, 9/6.
GSSF  Nationals, Talladega , 9/18-20.
GSSF RiverBend, Dawsonville, 10/9-11

These along with ICORE IRC, Frostproof, I wouldn't want to miss.

I really do want to compete in RC, but there just aren't that many nearby.   I did go to the one held in RockCastle, TN, but now that they've closed I don't know think there are any matches in the southeast.

How did you like RockCastle?  I remember looking at an aerial photo of that place thinking I was going to retire and go and shoot there a couple of years back.

Rockcastle was great.  The lodge a little dated, but clean and neat.   What was nice was having everybody on premise and in the evenings sitting outside with everybody while being entertained by local musicians (even some competitors). 

I hope somebody with more money than sense will buy it up, update the lodge and reopen it again.

&#@^%&  It's cancelled.  I was going to get on the bubble and start practicing.  Now I guess it'll have to be for next year.  I think this virus crap is way overblown.  I wish they had gone ahead with the competition.
