View the targets The event features 15 eggs shot @ 100yds from the benchs on the small range. Shooters form into multiple relays of 5 who shoot simultaneously. Scores are posted in the clubhouse and winners are presented a cash prize to take away.

Historically Open 15 egg Shoots have been held on the first Sunday of each month. Unlimited sighting practice may or may not be available to shooters after registration. The match provides for sighting shots during competition. Competition begins late morning with registration for the hour(s) before the event. Do confirm the schedule from the web calendar before travel.



  1. The range master will end practice shooting and make the range "SAFE". Before going down range to hang targets, he will announce the first relay.
  2. After the range has been prepared and has been made "HOT", the shooter may bring his rifle from the rack to his chosen bench.
  3. Once the shooter and rifle are made ready on the firing line, the shooter may take from zero to 5 sight-in shots (5 is the max) on a paper target in the lane near the eggs.
  4. When the shooter has finished sighting, he shall call out “eggs” to the range master. The next 15 shots must go for score only to the eggs (no more shots on the paper target after eggs are called).
  5. Permitted: 1 shot per Egg starting from the top-left toward the bottom-right.
  6. Immediately following the last egg shot, the shooter shall make his gun safe and return it to the rack. After all other shooters have finished, other equipment and brass may be removed from the bench.
  7. When everyone on the relay is finished, the range will be made "SAFE" and the next relay will be announced. An official will go down range to inspect eggs & replace broken eggs for the next relay. (The egg shell must be cracked to count as a hit. No points for gray lead marks.....without a crack!)
  8. Following range preparation, the range will go "HOT" and the next relay of shooters may start their course of fire beginning at step 2) above.
  9. Official egg count is posted for all to see.
