OK, details were finalized today…….a club in Kansas, the Capital City Cowboys just west of Topeka, has generously offered to host our Nebraska State Championship as a part of their T-Town Shootout August 14-16…so for you Nebraska Shooters, we WILL have a state championship after all!!! Side matches and warmups will be on the 14th, with the main match August 15-16.
If you have already downloaded the entry form, if you are a Nebraska shooter, write “Nebraska State” at the top of the form just so it isn’t missed that you are shooting in the Nebraska State match. If you are a Nebraska Shooter and you have already sent in your entry, contact JW and let him know so he can mark your entry as a state entry.
Topeka runs a great club with fun stages, and you will not regret coming down (and Topeka is not that far from Grand Island). I love how the clubs in this sport try to find ways to help each other out. There is camping available on the range, and hotels and restaurants 10-15 miles each of the range.
Due to Virus Concerns and Current Restrictions in Place, the 2020 State Championship at HPSP Has Been Canceled
Hope to See You Next Year!
