Default 2020 .22 TSC Series - Announcement


The 2020 .22 TSC Series matches will be held on the following dates:

April 11th - CANCELLED
June 13th
August 8th
October 10th

Sign in will begin at 9:00 AM, Match brief at 9:30, and shooting starts at 10:00AM.

Expect all the familiar targets, scoring, and positions, and par times. We'll add in a few challenging new positions as well. Our rapid reset target racks make the match go smoothly and quickly.

As a reminder, the .22 TSC Series is about shooting - not about gear - and you are limited to ONE shooting accessory such as a pack, OR a Game Changer type bag, bean bag, pump pillow, etc. No tripods or mechanical rests are permitted. ANY and ALL gear used is at the MD's discretion. Also remember that CVRPC requires that eye and ear pro be worn by the competitors and spectators when on the firing line.

It's time to get your rifles and gear together!!!

More to follow....

Any event at CVRPC will operate in compliance with the current NC guidelines. At present, gatherings are limited to no more than 25 persons. As such, a maximum of 25 people may be in the firing line area. This maximum will be made up of 10 shooters, 10 spotters/coaches, and 5 Range Officers. Anyone not shooting or performing spotting duties will not be allowed on the firing line/shed area. Others are advised to remain in the parking lot area until your relay is called. Additionally, please employ safe distancing practices.
Conover, NC. Catawba Valley Rifle and Pistol Club. Directions to the range can be found at Directions to CVRPC. The range is conveniently located a short distance off I-40 in Conover, NC (near Hickory, NC). Plenty of graveled parking is available as are indoor restrooms (men and women).

Entry fee is $25 each match. Please bring correct change if possible.
Shooters will accumulate points in a best 3 out of 4 match format and the highest 3-match point total at the end of the 4th and final match will be the 2020 TSC Series Champion. Any ties (1st-5th) will be broken via shoot-off. Please note this is a series and trophies will be awarded at the last match only. Heavy-duty steel trophies will be awarded for 1st - 5th place finishers. However, each match will have it’s own individual cash payout for 1st-5th place. The cash amount will be based on a percentage of number of entries. Please note that as the April 2020 match was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, a make up match date may be announced later this year.

• Relays are determined by random draw.
• No pre-staging of gear is permitted. The shooter must carry all gear (rifle, ammo, magazines, and chosen accessory) with him/her from the starting line to the firing position.
• Shooters will start with action/bolt open and chamber flag visible. Shooters must not remove the chamber flag and chamber a live round until in firing position.
• The shooter will remain at a marked starting position until the match commands are given. At the start signal, the competitor has 4 minutes to get into position, fire 2 sighter targets, then subsequently, 10 shots for score.

The sighter targets MUST be engaged first. The sighter target cannot be re-engaged after the competitor has begun firing for score.
• If the shooter fires at the “scoring” targets first, they cannot fire at the sighter target during the relay. If a competitor does not fire the allocated 2 rounds on the sighter target for any reason, the competitor still has a maximum of 10 shots for score.
• Watch your round count! If a competitor fires more than 10 rounds for score, their score for that stage shall be zero “0”. If a competitor fires more than 10 rounds for score on a succeeding Stage, the shooter is disqualified for the match.
• The competitor may choose to engage any target on the stage in any order – Left to Right, Right to Left; or the competitor may choose to “skip” a target and engage the next available target. This is applicable unless a specific procedure is given for specific Stage at the Match Briefing.

• If a competitor fires at a target for score prior to receiving the FIRE command, it shall be called as an “early shot” and any point scored shall be marked as a zero “0”.

• At the end of the 4 minute period competitors will receive a “Cease Fire” command. Any shot fired after the Cease Fire command is given will be called as a “Late shot” and shall be scored as “0”.
• At the Cease Fire command the competitor must display a clear and open action, insert an “open chamber indicator” or flag, and acknowledge clear by a show of hands.
• Shooters must hold their position while targets are scored. Line officers will be present to assist in scoring.
• Firearms MUST NOT be handled, moved, scopes adjusted, or otherwise touched after the cease fire command is given and the range called safe.
• Once all targets are scored, and all weapons deemed clear, the competitor may remove their equipment from the firing line if directed, OR leave the firearm on the line while awaiting the next relay and command to move to the next position.
• NOTE: A chamber flag/open chamber indicator MUST BE PRESENT AT ALL TIMES both on the firing line and off.
• Once score cards are marked, and the range determined clear, the command for target setters will be given.

NOTE: To help ensure the target setter’s downrange safety and aid in enforcement of this rule, any competitor called for handling their firearm on the firing line while persons are downrange will be immediately disqualified and the competitor asked to remove their equipment from the line. No exceptions. No discussion. No butthurt. Just get off the line. Safety will NOT be compromised.

• Targets MUST fall to be scored as a HIT.
• Targets still standing will be counted as a miss or not engaged. Edges or turned targets will be scored as a miss.
• Each missed or not engaged target will be scored as “0” point.
• A total of 50 points are available.
• All competitors must have their scorecard verified and initialed before leaving the line and/or advancing to the next position. Blank or mismarked scorecards will be scored as “0”. Line Officers will be available for assistance in scoring or match procedures.
• Competitors will turn in their scorecard to the Match Director or Line Officer at the completion of Relay #5.
• All scorecards must be completed with the competitor’s name clearly legible prior to turning it in for scoring. Scorecards with no name or identifying information will be rejected.
• In the event of a “tie” for 1st – 5th place, a “Tiebreaker Stage” will be added and will be at the Match Directors discretion. Expect targets from 57 to 290 yards.

• No alibi shots will be given for failure to fire due to equipment or ammunition malfunction.
• No alibi shots will be given for failure to fire during the allotted time.
• Alibi shots will be permitted only when the respective targets are unavailable due to crossfire or mechanical target failure in the competitor’s bank and the competitor has not fired all 10 allowed shots.
• The competitor must notify a Range Officer or the Match Director immediately if he/she has missing targets due to crossfire or mechanical target failure.
• It is the sole responsibility of the competitor to notify the Range Officer of the alibi situation.
• It is the sole responsibility of the competitor to decide to engage further targets or suspend fire and engage the targets in an alibi period.
• At the Match Director’s command, the alibi shooter will engage targets with the standard range commands and the competitor shall be given 20 seconds per alibi shot.

NOTE: If a competitor recognizes and acknowledges a missing or incorrect target in their bank of targets for score, they (or their spotter) must notify a R.O. or M.D. immediately before engaging targets.

• CVRPC requires the use of open chamber indicators/flags at all times except after the load/start command has been given. ALL bolts and actions must remain open at all times except when “on stage” after the Start command is given.
• Failure to display open actions and Open Chamber Indicator will result in 1 warning, followed by disqualification.

• Eye and hearing protection must be worn by competitors, spotters, and bystanders.

• No horseplay or unsafe gun handling will be tolerated. Watch your muzzle!

Please contact Steve Roe or Brian Franklin for further information or preregistration. Pre registration is recommended but not required.
