If there is ever a national event to go to, THIS IS IT!! Really a lot of fun for all level of shooters. You will stay busy all day with Event shooting, fun shooting games, and a vendor row filled with all your favorite shops. Awards are at the end of each day and the Crushers have done very well over the years bringing home both individual and team awards.

The Schedule is not published at this time, but keep checking for the full schedule.

Bring your own ammo, or there will be plenty of ammo for sale at the event. Plan accordingly for food, drinks, and the weather. There are plenty of food and drink vendors there as well but it is always good to plan for additional snacks and drinks when you’re shooting.

A golf cart is a must for this event to get from one event to the next. It’s a very large complex and not walkable from one event to the next. You will need to call ahead to have a golf cart available.
