GA: 74th Annual Black Hawk Open

This is a reminder of the upcoming 74th Annual Black Hawk Open on June 21 – 22.    As in 2013, this year’s tournament will be hosted by River Bend Gun Club in Dawsonville, GA.  Many shooters have already notified me that they plan to compete and most have already submitted their entry to Walt Walter, Black Hawk Rifle Club’s Executive Officer.  For your convenience I have attached three PDF files containing the tournament program, reservation request form and liability release.  If you are planning to join us, I encourage you to send your completed forms and entry fees to Walt.

Please note that this year’s Black Hawk Open sports an NRA regional championship sanction which includes all of the NRA-provided awards associated with a regional championship plus the opportunity to earn steps toward your NRA Distinguished Smallbore Rifleman Award and Double Distinguished Award.

On Saturday evening, we will host a southern-style barbecue dinner catered by Big D’s Barbecue at the pavilion located on RBGC property at the cowboy action range.  The attached entry form includes a place to sign-up for the dinner.

Please call or write if you have questions or if I can be of assistance.

We hope to see you there.
