International Postal Match 

Sponsored by the Upper Peninsula Muzzle Loaders Michigan

upmuzzleloaders.com/home.htm

We shot our first postal match target of the year at the Jan 18 2020 rifle shoot.

How it works:  Each month, each shooter who shows up at a meeting of a participating club fires six shots at a paper target distributed individually for that month's competition. All who shoot are considered to be "on the team" for their club for that month. All shooters at an individual club should fire at the same time and place. There are no "make-up"targets for absent shooters. Numbers of individuals who shoot at any of the clubs can vary from month to month. Management of the monthly shooting event for each club (time, day, place, etc.) is left to the club.

Targets are placed 25 yards from the firing line. Firearms should be traditional sidehammer or underhammer rifles or smoothbores, either flintlocks or caplocks. Open sights only. Patched roundball only. The five highest scoring shots on each target will be counted toward the individual target score of 50 points maximum.

After the monthly shoot, each club mails the targets from all of its shooters to the UPMLA competition scorer. The five highest-scoring targets from each club are totaled to make up the club score for that month.

The scorer will tabulate the scores of the targets of each shooter in each club, and send results showing scores of all the shooters to the coordinator of each club. Every shooter can then see the scores of every other shooter in all the clubs.

ARIZONA WESTERN INDEPENDENT NATIONAL SHOOT

MAR 3 - Mar 9, 2020

Sponsored by the Arizona Muzzle Loading Association 
Held at Ben Avery Shooting Range Arizona

This shoot was organized to give black powder shooters in the west the opportunity to compete on a national scale. The first shoot, held in 2019 was a success with black powder shooters from all over the country participating. Shooting fees were a flat $70.00 for as many aggregates as you could shoot. There was also no NMLRA membership requirement. The dress code on the Primitive Range was not as rigid as it has often been which can be costly nor was there insistence on the use of wooden ramrods which can be unsafe. The trailwalk was not easy and was changed each day so that there could be a different winner each day.  Weather was great, mostly sunny and warm. A shining time was had by all.

Instead of medals or plaques certificates were handed out. The awards ceremony went much faster as each person who won something was called to come get all of their certificates at once for everything they entered and won.
