Volunteers urgently needed for this weekend- Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday morning, Sunday afternoon

Hello BFAC,

This weekend we’re putting on one of our biggest shoots of the year, the ASA state championship 3D qualifier, and we need some more volunteer help. Our club is entirely run by volunteers, and these big shoots are a significant source of income which is 100% put back into the club in the form of improvements, new foam, new targets, and so on. We can’t put on these type of events without more help. If you can help in one or more of the following time slots, please let me know:

  • Friday, 5 PM: 3D course setup, mostly including target placement and ranging.
  • Saturday, 7:30-10 AM: Help with shooter registration, course orientation, etc.
  • Sunday, 7:3-10 AM: Help with shooter registration, course orientation, etc.
  • Sunday, ~ 1 PM: course takedown.

If we can get half a dozen volunteers for each segment, we can run this shoot without putting a load on the usual volunteers. Please send us an email to let us know if you can make it out this weekend. If you help us you can shoot the club shoot, or the next shoot, for free. If you have already planned to help and haven’t let me know, please let us know!

If you have already responded with an offer to help, thank you so much! We truly couldn’t do it without you.

Thank you,
The BFAC Board

Hello BFAC members,

Thank you to all those who came out on Sunday for our second club shoot of the year! And a special thanks to all the volunteers who helped set up/take down the course as well.

Though the weather wasn’t the greatest on the day of the shoot, we still had a good turnout (and a great time!). Below are some pictures taken throughout the shoot:

BFAC 3D Club Shoot – March 2014

Hello all,

Our second club shoot of the year will take place this Sunday, March 16, at 9 AM. Registration will open at 8 AM. We will shoot three classes (Open, Hunter, and Beginner/Youth/Traditional), and will follow ASA scoring rules. Members will need to pay $10 to participate; nonmembers pay $15, and youth under 12 will pay a discounted rate.

Come on out, and bring your friends! BFAC is also hosting the ASA state championships later this summer, so now is a great time to come and see what the course is like.

As with all our events, the gates to the range will be open for the duration of the shoot, so any non-members interested in the club are welcome to check it out.

Finally, volunteers are also needed to help set up the course for the shoot and take it down after the shoot. Please note that VOLUNTEERS CAN SHOOT FOR FREE. We are looking for volunteers to:

  • Arrive at the range at 7AM on the day of the shoot to assist with the set up of the course
  • Help run the registration table during the morning
  • And/or stay an extra hour afterwards to assist with the cleanup

There is no obligation to stay the entire day if you volunteer.

If you are interested in helping out, please send us an email by this Friday and let us know during what time you would be able to help out. Thank you!
