To be held Saturday, September 11, 2021 at the GOB airgun range located on Roz

Sumpter’s property, Roz’s Hollow, in Pulaski, Tennessee.


 It is a one day match consisting of 11 lanes with 66 shots for score.  Due to the number of lanes available (eleven) and wanting to keep squads at a maximum of 3 shooters per squad, we must limit the number of contestants to 33.  Divisions/classes will be WFTF, OPEN and HUNTER with customary power plant restrictions.  

Number of awards dependent on the number of participants.


For those who arrive a day early on Friday, September 10th the practice and sight-in area will be open from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm.  After which we will adjourn for a buffet meal in town.

As the members of the GOB and Invicta FT clubs discussed how to create this match, adding a spring piston element to the activities was suggested.  With unanimous agreement we will have a 30 shot piston gun match on Friday mid-afternoon using 5 lanes of Saturday’s course.  (Awards to be determined.)

Overall we want to go forward in presenting this match in the spirit and reminiscence of the early days of Field Target competition.  We seek to provide a laid back atmosphere of fun and low stress. 

Please note; this is NOT an AAFTA match in compliance with Grand-Prix rules.

There will be no meal on match day, so bring snacks.

Clarification;  the Friday 9/10/21 Spring gun only match is separate from the Saturday 9/11 TN State match.  It is not necessary to shoot in the Friday match.  Friday's scores will NOT be counted towards Saturday's State match scores.

UPDATE:The 2021 TN State Match is now named 'The Pat O'Brien Memorial Match' to be held Sept. 11, 2021 at Roz's GOB range.

As additional incentive for attending this event each competitor, upon arrival, will receive one (1) quality Field Target from the 'Fire Marshall' collection.  The majority of these targets sold for well over $35.00 each when new.  This will more than offset the $35. match fee.  Targets will be distributed on a first come, first served pick while they last.  There will also be assorted shooting related items auctioned away at some point.  Try to arrive by completion of the Friday afternoon Spring Gun match in order to avoid possible disappointment.
