Default 2018 20 ga and 16 ga Parker vs Smith Challenge

Further details to follow (they will also be printed in the Parker Pages and LC Smith Journal).

This year in addition to the 16 gauge challenge event we are adding a 20 gauge challenge event.
Both will be five stand formats run by Rick Hemingway. He will use both five stands at the Spring Southern so we can have both events running simultaneously.
As before qualify as many times as you like. Your highest score will be the one that counts. The top five scores from each team and each gauge will then face off in a shoot off with totally different targets. (one shoot off for 16 ga and one for 20 ga)

When: Thursday April 26th, starting at 9am, qualifying to be cut off around 3:30 pm
Where: Deep River, the dove field at the five stands run by Rick Hemingway.
No registration fee.
Trophies awarded to the top five scores (each gauge)
Perpetual trophy awarded to the winning team for each gauge event.

Please come out and enjoy some sub gauge five stand fun.

Just bringing this to the top again. Please keep an eye out in the Parker Pages for the info on the shoot.

I will also post another message here with that same info soon.


Hope to see everyone there.

Mike,

Looking forward to it. Wishing you fellas safe travels.

Trophies should be here this week or early next week.
Mint julep cups engraved.
1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th places for each 16 and 20 ga

I will try to post some pictures once they arrive. I am not so good with computers and posting pictures and all that stuff.

The Smith guys have been out practicing and are getting ready. We need to meet them head on and win some this year. A clean sweep would be really really cool. (20 ga, 16 ga, Challenge cup, hammer challenge cup wins all by team Parker. Now that would be something and give Dean some great info for the Parker Pages.

That would be the stuff that dreams are made of.
I hope Team Parker sweeps the entire event!

Guys,

In 2016 LC Smith won the following:
16 ga event, 8 bore event, challenge event and the hammer challenge event.

It can be done. TEAM PARKER can do it.
