    You'll get little or none as far as commitments with that level of detail. I compete all up and down the west coast and I have property in OR so I'd be down to go but you need some course of fire description, entry fee $$$ amount, prize table information (if applicable), scheduling information, division/class descriptions, etc...

    Make with the deets. I'll betcha get 35-50 guys if you have a good course of fire, inexpensive entry fee and a weekend (Saturday) shoot.

    If you want to discuss how to put on a proper shoot PM me a phone number and I'll give you all the info you need to run a successful event. You really need to start with insurance. Someone needs to have graduated from an NRA safety or instructors course so they can get some NRA insurance. Once you have that then you can start thinking about people with guns showing up. Until you do that, don't even bother starting. You'll be risking financial futures without insurance.

    Our club is checking on insurance to shoot in forest not at range hence why no more information until we find out if we can do it for sure

    Our insurance is through NRA. not our first shoot, just usually have them at our range and need to use USFS land for this one so working on day use permit too

    Thanks for info will keep ya in mind if I could use some more ideas especially on classes or divisions
