There were 15 shooters total for the match. Several new shooters came out for their first time. Four Divisions were represented; Stock Service Pistol, Enhanced Service Pistol, Custom Defensive Pistol and one intrepid shooter in Stock Service Revolver. Two lady shooters competed.

There were four stages; three scenarios and one standard stage. A minimum of 51 rounds were required although most competitors fired more. One stage required some difficult shooting past non-threat targets. All the scenario stages required the shooter to move from position to position and shoot from behind cover. The standard stage required the competitors to shoot with both hands and then with the strong hand only.
The competitors gathered for lunch afterward at Bigun’s Barbeque on Highway 515. Most departed by 3 p.m.
