(As of Aug 8, 2015, the Tournament still has to be registered so you will have to have to wait until it actually gets on their website, it will appear in drop down menu.)

Arizona participants will be given a shirt, but unfortunately will have to pay their own enter fee of $50 or less, and their travel and lodging. If so funding becomes available later we will help to offset your expenses.

Right now we are looking for people, who are interested in shooting the tournament. If necessary we will cut based on past scores. Individuals are allowed to shot along, if anyone just wants to go and just have some fun shooting.
