It is with great pride and enthusiasm that we will be running the 32nd Anniversary Match this summer.
  • The match will be held Saturday, July 21st
  • This year’s “dry-land stage” can be shot as a “stand-alone” side match. Be prepared to carry and shoot a minimum of 25 shot loads, and 10 slugs, just for that stage. This is a chance for some of our more “distinguished alumni” to take part in the fun.
  • Shooters for the “full-match” will be squadded. We will do our best to accommodate squadding requests (see registration form). Check-in / Registration / Squadding starts at 10:00 am, ends at 11:00 am. Shooters meeting at 11:15. Shooting starts at 11:30. 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.
  • The 32nd 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.
  • Costs:
    • Full Match: $25 (+ $5 for non-members)
    • Dry-land stage only, side match: $12 (+ $3 for non-members)
    • $10 Clean-up deposit (re-funded if you stay to help clean up, applies only to “full match” shooters)
    • Match T-shirt: $13
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 75 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).
    • No steel shot or 7 ½, 8s or 9s 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!
  • 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. Be prepared to carry as much as 35 rounds of ammo on your person, at one time.
  • Slings must be attached to your weapon on ALL stages.
  • As always, wear clothing and shoes appropriate to the swamp venue. Hearing and eye protection are required at all times, no exceptions.
