I regret to inform that i will be shutting down the Grand Prix due to club disagreements. my intentions were the best but for what ever reason it is be best to end it right now. we had some fantastic shooting out there!!! it were my pleasure to help as many that wanted it, and donating my time to the score board. giving classes on a variety of topics was fun and sharing the company of everyone was a pure pleasure on my part. i had a blast!!!! and so did Scott St. Match director at NorCal Air Gunners Club.
I started the Grand Prix for a variety of reasons. one is to have a way for shooters to earn trophies while shooting AAFTA style matches locally with out the huge expense or time off for far away matches. two, get local shooters geared up for something bigger like Nationals or a Regional or s State Match. three, it would also bring clubs together and inspire shooters to improve their ability and see that improvement over an entire season, and have their scores posted on a main score board where the FT community could see their names and scores. it would also get club members traveling more out side their own club experiencing different ground to shoot on making more friendships. this would act as a bridge for further on the road matches which would provide an inventory of new shooters in the area for the far away matches.
and it worked!!!!!!!!!!!
in addtion, it gave increases of up to 33 percent more attendance at club events across the board.
hats off to everyone who entered!
i will be refunding all monies to everyone. please email me for a refund and where you would like for me to send it.
sorry if i have ever offended anyone. you can catch me at Cordova Shooting Center.
