Q: What about TEAMS?

NOTE: NJ State Teams will be entered by and paid for the State Pistol Chairman (Ray Badiak) AT CAMP PERRY!  You do NOT have to sign up for any TEAM matches when you enter online or by mail - just sign up for your individual matches (see above!)  If you are interested in firing on a Team, read and reply to the NJ 2020 TEAM LETTER

   IMPORTANT NOTE: You must belong to NJ State Association (ANJRPC) for at least 30 days prior to Camp Perry to fire on a NJ State Team!

  Click HERE to join!

 Team Matches are conducted on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for each of the 3 guns of the 2700 Championship.  They are held AFTER the individual matches for that gun are finished for that day.

Team matches are 30 round NMC - 4 members of each team will be chosen to fire on any given day - they fire 2 at a time (-i.e., there are two 30-round relays) - the non-firing team members help with scoring.  A total of 2 alternates are allowed on 4 member teams.

Team matches are ALSO conducted for "hardball" on Saturday!  Juniors may be on 2-person teams!

NOTE: Your individual squadding location will likely be on a different point, and may be on a different range than your team squadding!

Preliminary day TEAMS: 3-man fired match (one .22, one CF and one .45!) are not included in usual ANJRPC sponsorship

 -  To make your trip to the firing line easier, consider getting a  "Geezer" cart instead of carrying all your gear by hand!

 - Leave your stapler at home!  No repair centers here!
- you'll need to get your 9 targets, complete with backers, to bring to the firing line!
  (fired and unfired targets fit below the benches - see photo below)

You may want to bring a chair - slow fire takes the full 10 minutes here!

You may want to bring a clamp for your brass catcher and a strap to keep your gunbox from blowing over (Camp Perry WIND is legendary!)

NOTE: When going from "long line" (slow fire) to "short line" (timed and rapid fire) you will need to move all your gear
from 50 yard line to 25 yard line!!  Your cart must FIT BETWEEN the benches ("geezer carts" do fit!)

 -  Bring fishing gear?! - Port Clinton is the "Walleye Capitol of the World!"

Q: MORE WORDS OF ADVICE

The following hints are offered by our local "veterans" to help you:

Don't be afraid to ask questions of anyone standing around!

Know your target # (some shooters write in on their shooting hand!) so you don't crossfire
- your shooting point may not "line up" with your target as you might expect!

Load your magazines before going to the firing line!

"We will give you time to adjust your equipment"
If you are not ready, announce it LOUDLY before your line officer raises his green paddle!

"Invest" in a calculator from the Dollar Store if you are "mathematically challenged"
- CELL PHONES MUST BE MUTED on the firing line!

If the targets turn away before they should (or don't turn away when they should) raise your hand and speak up (before the next string!)
  Unless shooters object, the tower is not going to "automatically" offer a refire if there has been a timing malfunction!

If targets don't face when they should ("significantly" more than 3 second delay) and then suddenly face, don't fire - ask for a refire!

Check that your shot values have been written correctly!

THANK THE VOLUNTEERS - range personnel are out there, in whatever weather, for 8-10 hours
(and if things run late they might not even get lunch!)
