Holiday Matches?????
« on: April 11, 2015, 05:46:20 PM »
Looking at match dates.  Do 3 day weekends like Memorial Day or Labor Day attract more shooters or do they cause more scheduling conflict for shooters?  What is your experience?

Never seen a major match right on a big holiday.   They avoid 'em, it seems.

Club matches -  4th of July, Labor day usually means a weak turnout.   Family comes first for most folks.

Good luck, GJ

J Frank we see a lot of matches on holiday weeks.  This year the Texas State Rifle Assoc is holding our WB State Championship and Cowboy State Championship over Memorial Day weekend.  The same weekend their is a Regional Cowboy Lever Action Silhouette Championship sponsored by the NRA at the range in Oklahoma City were Land Run is held in two weeks. The Nation Cowboy Lever Action Silhouette Championships in Raton, NM will be held over July 4th this year.  Its not to uncommon for Matches to be held on long weekends
