Hi - just came across this on the Appleseed forum, and thought there might be some interest here.
The JMJ Farm in Bowler WI is hosting a designated marksman match May 9th and/or 10th. A two-mile, seven stage course will test you, your kit, and your preferred shooting discipline whether it is traditional American riflery (Appleseed) or precision riflery (Sniper’s Hide). Ranges vary from 100 yards to 600+ yards and field position shooting will be required; i.e. standing, seated/kneeling, and prone. The goals of the match are to practice rifle marksmanship under some stress, debug your kit in the field, and teach a bit of American history. Appleseeders will instantly recognize the Hits Count stage and Hide members will be familiar with the Know Your Limit sort of thing. You need only be at one of the days. The match will be kid and spouse friendly, having a 22LR “simulation” of each stage for them that the high power shooters engage. I might even have a class ready for the kids/spouse teaching the Streloc app with a 22lr long range simulator. A $200 donation will be made to the winning discipline’s champion website and a $100 donation to the second best in appreciation for all that they do for the shooting community.
The cost to shoot for score will be $25 but the cost to compete for score and prizes will cost $100. You may retry (even a different discipline) for $25. The top competitor in each discipline will receive their money back plus half of the fee paid by competitors in the same. A second place in each may be awarded his money back plus 10% of all like competitors if the event is well attended.
Any questions or sign up request can be directed to JoeZ via pm or phone call or email. Thank you for your interest.

Discipline will be decided by sling use. Appleseed discipline will use slings and no other support and Sniper's Hide will use bipods and such with no sling use.
Optics or irons doesn't matter.
Starts at 8:00 AM;The course of fire is the same for either discipline, show up, do admin, get briefed, go shoot. There will be no general briefing. Your first try is for score, but you may retry all you like, even choosing the other discipline. Day 2 is just more time to squeeze people in, nothing new.
