There isn't a match/competition section anymore, so I was unsure of where to post this, but here it goes:
This is a copy of the match program for the first annual Tennessee F Class Championship. What the program doesn't tell you is that the match has been sponsored by MilDot Enterprise, Sierra bullets, Redding Reloading, Krieger Barrels and the US F Class team. We wait patiently as other sponsors are sending items daily. This should be a great match, and give shooters a good chance of leaving with a nice prize.
I would also like to add that we should try to support those who support us. With their help, growing and developing the F class is possible.
