I'll be there also, only because I found out accidently.They're a great bunch of people.

It's a shame that they don't advertise the match way ahead of time.

I mean, If you check their site, the next match is Aug, 9th and the Store site stops with July. ...Hello!

I guess I could have called them...oh wait I did...please leave a message.

I thinka lot more people would be showing up if they found out before the match is over.

I'll make sure they get my email address, but still a day before is not much time to plan.

OK, you got me...I found out three days before...

I'm just saying that they put a lot of time, effort, work into the Matches. Tom is the best and works real hard at making them a good experience.

More people should be there... I was trying to find out when it was for a while. Most of the time when I called the shop, I got the recording.

NowI know more people and have more places to check, but someone new to the hobby or out of the loop was hard pressed to find out when the matches were during the summer.

I see that theL.I.F.T site is now updated through November. So, there's no reason not to plan ahead now.

It was probably just a flukethat the sites weren't updated during the summer. I know everyone gets busy.

There is very little going on in the way of organized shooting on Long Island that gets much attention because Long Island is so anti-gun anything.

So, the only other place to find out when the matches are is at their website or here. Both places weren'tup to date.

I wish I could say that2-3 days noticeis enough, but between kids sports, the Honey Do List, and life in general, it's not.

I really enjoyed myself at the Match. Those targets are a LOT smaller than I thought they would be. It really put me in my place. (though not last place )

Everybody come out for the next Match. The people are great and you will see quite a variety of different airguns.
