Hey folks, its with great pleasure that I annouce our North Carolina Reduced Course (2/300 yard) XTC and 300 yard Mid Range prone State Championships that will be held again this year at Catawba Valley Rifle Club and cosponsored by the Lake Norman High Power Club on the last weekend of October. Oct 31/Nov1

The matches will be the weekend of Oct 31/Nov 1. Its a 2 day, 2 part state championship sanctioned by NCRPA and NRA (paperwork sent in but havent heard back yet but we should be fully registered just like last year). On Saturday, Oct 31, we will shoot an 800 agg XTC match. Its 200 and 300 yards, with pits. We are limited to 3 relays of 18 shooters, so a max of 54 shooters for either day. We start shooting Sat at 8am sharp. After the 800 agg, we will have a cookout thats included in the match fees. Any legal HP rifle is good to go. Optics ARE allowed but you wont be eligible for awards. Will have an overall winner, high match rifle, high service rifle, high vintage, and high class winners for any class with 5 or more preregistered competitors. We give out some nice plaques and the state champion gets the big trophy as well for the year and its passed down to the next winner and the last years winner's name gets added to it.

On Sunday, we are running another state championship, this one is a midrange prone only match. 3 strings of 20 shots with sighers at 300 yards on the MR 63 target. First string is iron sights only, the next two strings are ANY sights, so bring your optics if you want. Will have an overall winner, a high match rifle and a high service rifle. And any class with 5 or more preregistered competitors get another award available. We are having a pancake breakfast at 9am on Sunday, during that time we are awarding Saturdays awards, holding the door prize drawings, raffle and live auction. Shooting on Sunday starts at noon, sharp (we cant shoot on Sunday before noon, thus the morning activities).

Match fees are $65 for BOTH days if registered before Oct 1, its $75 after Oct 1. As this is a limited number of competitors match, preregistering is a must as thats they only way to guarantee a spot on the line and we do anticipate filling the line well before the match weekend. Match fees cover shooting, food on both days, door prize drawing, etc.

Prizes - Here is where our match is different. Our prize pool is amazing. We have door prizes including Rock River Stripped AR15 lowers, ParaOrdnance AR 15 stripped lowers, RRA 2 stage match triggers, Turner slings, ammo, Berger bullets, Sierra Bullets, Hornady Bullets, gun cases and more. Raffle items will include a complete National Match Rock River AR15 lower, Creedmoor Hardback shooting coat, and there will be a live auction for a full blown White Oak Armament NM upper with pinned sights. Raffle and live auction proceeds and all proceeds from the match go directly to fun the high power program at Cat Valley and to support the LNHPC junior program. This match funds our programs for the year and almost all, if not all, competitors will walk away from this match with something more than just a results bulletin! Last year, everyone walked away with something off the table.

Location - Cat Valley is in Conover, NC, which is just outside of Hickory. The range is 5 mins off exit 130 on I40. We have a Super 8 motel in Conover with rooms at $60 per night. If someone wants to "camp out", I think we can arrange something there too that would put you 40 mins from the range.

I cant promise you that you will shoot great or win, but I can promise you that you will have fun and you will find that we run a quick and efficient match, and we wont have any line nazis messing with you. This may be a "reduced course" match but the folks that show up to shoot it take it very seriously and competition each year is pretty fierce (we had one new national record set last year and had 2 shooters all but break the open record). The target frames are slick and easy to run. We also use a UTV pulling a trailer as a "shooter shuttle" to haul all competitors back and forth from the pits, so line changes are quick. We also try to give out nice awards to those that shoot well. Its a great way to end the year and all proceeds go to two great causes...our range and our kids. Please come out and join us!

If anyone wants additional information, questions or a PDF copy of our match program, just email me at and I will forward you one. I can also give you George's address for sending in your preregistration forms and match fees.

Look forward to seeing some of yall joining us!
