Tho with FAR MORE CONSERVATIVE and wild targets !!!      We will be shooting on Black face plate / Yellow paddles.


Please HELP support this effort on having a GP shoot at the 2021 Nationals location !!  It is a Lot of Work and having folks actually show up is paramount to future matches and preparation for the Nationals later this fall.
