About this Event

For our long range artillery shoot. We seek to pull quality artillerists together to enjoy our sport, fellowship and camaraderie. We have a spectacular site, located in southeast Tennessee. It is just northwest of Chattanooga. The site will allow us to shoot out to 1000 Yards. It is very safe, with a Mountain rising 1000 plus feet as the backstop. It is free of buildings for several miles.

Our 2018 shoot was a great success. We had 15 Guns attend. We enjoyed good fellowship and made some new friends. We hope to build on the lessons we learned form the 1st shoot to make 2019 even better.

Course of Fire:

Friday night 05 April 19: We will have a dinner at Simply Southern. The topic of discussion is Bannerman’s Island. We have a short presentation of pictures presented by Matt Switik. If you have pictures, stories or artifacts from Bannerman’s Island please bring it and share. Those of us who never got to see this magical place would love to hear more. Space is limited to 50. Time and price will be decided soon. When details are firm, information will go out.

Saturday 06 April will consist of an open range session. We will shoot out to 1000 yards. The targets will be 55 Gallon Barrels, Lots of them, some filled with water. This is open to rifles and smooth bores. We will schedule out the range in 45 minute courses, allowing you to practice engaging targets at various ranges. We will have a few surprises on the range. Lots of Fun.

Sunday will be the Competition portion. Rifled guns will shoot at static targets out to 1000 Yards. Space is limited. If we have sufficient preregistration we will have Field and Mountain Gun divisions. Course of fire will be 15 rounds. If we have enough interest we will shoot smooth bored guns as well.
