For those shooting parent categories that are sometimes broken out further by age, such as senior classic cowboy, senior gunfighter, senior frontiersman, etc., if there are less than three competitors, we may consolidate those categories into the parent category depending on how many are signed up by March 1st. Affected competitors will be notified prior to this happening. So, if you want a further broken out category, please recruit your friends to shoot with you.
