CENTERFIRE JUG SHOOT
May 21 and September 17, 2022
Reach into the back corner of your closet and dust off that centerfire rifle. We're gonna have a jug shoot at the Brokenlock Range! This event is open to the public--so bring your friends.
This is how it works: At 100 yards, a cable will be installed just above the target frames; and on that cable, we will suspend plastic jugs filled with water on metal hooks.
We start with gallon jugs for the first round, then ½ gallon for the second, and pints for the third. Each shooter will get 3 shots per round to be fired in 3 minutes (loads of time) to hit the jug. Scoring is simple: Hit first shot, 1 point. Hit 2nd shot, 2 points. Hit 3rd shot, 3 points. And no hit is 4 points. At the end of shooting, you will want to have a low point score. Pretty simple huh?
This is known as a blanket shoot because when all the scores are totaled, the shooter with the lowest score will pick a prize from the blanket (or table) first. The second lowest will pick next, and so on until the last. Every shooter will take home something. Bring stuff, take stuff--Great huh?
