General Match Info:
  • The match will be held Saturday, July 23rd (NOT the traditional last Saturday in July).
  • Shooters will be squadded. We will do our best to accommodate squadding requests (see registration form). Check-in / Registration / Squadding starts at 9:30am, ends at 10:30am. Shooters meeting at 10:45. Shooting starts at 11:00. Registration may be limited to the first 30 shooters.
  • There will be no lunch provided as part of the match. Bring food and beverages to be consumed on the course, if you like. There will be no breaks during the match, so make sure you eat a big breakfast and show up ready to shoot.
  • The 31th Anniversary Dinner will be held AFTER the match this year, Saturday evening around 6-ish (after clean-up). Details to follow in a separate notice.
  • As in the past, there will be a $10 match clean-up fee / deposit. If you stick around and help clean-up, you get your money back.
Course Description and Equipment Requirements:
  • All standard ALGC T R & S rules apply
  • There will be three shotgun divisions this year:
    • Stock (AKA: Stock Riot Gun):
    • Tactical Enhanced Shotgun
    • Heavy Gun (AKA: Swamp Fox Shotgun)
  • There will be a minimum of 50 steel targets and 15 slug targets. Be prepared to shoot slugs out to 75 yards. Bring extra ammo.
    • Minimum power factor for “Heavy Gun” is 640,000 (for example, “standard” 9 pellet buckshot is 643,000 power factor, most 1 ¼ ounce, 3 ¼ dram loads exceed this. Standard slugs only).
    • Minimum power factor for Stock or Tactical classes is 545,000 (for example, “tactical” 9 pellet buckshot is 546,000 power factor, most 1 ounce “game loads” exceed this. “Tactical” or “low-recoil” slugs allowed). BE ADVISED: Lighter loads don’t take the poppers down as well as heavy loads and require more precise shooting, and often tighter chokes. If your ammo of choice fails to take down the targets, no whining is allowed!
    • No steel shot or 7 ½, 8s or 9s allowed.
  • Standard ammo carrier rules apply. Be prepared to have to load your gun quickly from NON-standard ammo carriers, which will be supplied to you.
  • Slings will be required on all stages.
  • As always, wear clothing and shoes appropriate to the swamp venue. Hearing and eye protection are required at all times.
