Default 2016 Vintage Cup

Hello All,

I want to let everyone know that there will be a vintage cup event this year! We'll be returning to the Eastern Shore of Maryland at Hopkins Game Farm. Make plans to join us and continue the tradition. Please see the information below and look for more details.

2016 Vintage Gunners Cup World Side-by-Side Championship & Exhibition Set for September 23 – 25, 2016 at Hopkins Game Farm in Kennedyville, Maryland

The Vintage Gunners, official and legal successor to The Vintagers: Order of Edwardian Gunners, announces that the 2016 Vintage Gunners Cup and World Side-by-Side Championship and Exhibition will be held September 23 – 25, 2016 at Hopkins Game Farm in Kennedyville Maryland.

The format will be similar to past Vintage Cups with shotgun side events on Friday and Saturday and the main event on Sunday. Side events (hammerless and hammergun) will be held in all gauges from 10 through .410. In addition special events such as an American Classics competition, one and two-man team flurry events, a ladies two-woman team competition, and a black powder competition will also be held. This year’s Vintage Gunners Cup will be the Eighteenth edition of the World Side-by-Side Championship & Exhibition scheduled for its traditional weekend in September.

Following its grand tradition of hosting one of the finest sporting arms exhibitions, tents will be set up to house the booths in which gun dealers and related vendors will display their merchandise.
Shooters will find accommodations and fine dining in nearby Chestertown, Maryland just 10 minutes from the venue.

Hopkins Game Farm was one of the pioneer clubs in the introduction and success of Sporting Clays in America. George Hopkins knows how to run a good shoot and I hope this is the beginning of a new and successful Vintage Cup.

One more thing! I hope this is not the same weekend as the Orvis Game Fair at Sandanona! That would seriously hurt this new Vintagers event.

No, it's the same weekend as the Northern SxS Expo at Rock Mountain, another premiere venue managed by fine folks who oddly enough announced their dates last September. JMHO but we're way too small of a fraternity for such divisive tactics. Then again, you want a war.......BRING IT!!

Hopkins is one of the clubs I shoot here in MD. I wish it was'nt on the same weekend as Rock Mountain. I'm committed to Mike's shoot.

We'll be at Rock Mountain too, along with so many SXS folks we have come to think of as family.

It's too bad the Vintagers folks didn't investigate 'shoot' dates a bit better as this could be detrimental to their renewed efforts. Oh well, the 'learning curve' doesn't take prisoners.
