Default Fox-Lefever Challenge Rules for Hausmann's

Ladies and Gents, for those interested in shooting a Fox or Lefever gun, here are the rules for the Fox-Lefever Challenge at Hausmann's Northern SxS Classic.




2016 Fox vs. Lefever Challenge Rules


1) Competition is open to members in good standing of the AHFCA or LACA before they shoot their qualification round. Updated rosters will be on hand to verify current membership status. Dual members of AHFCA and LACA must choose ONE Association to represent at time of registration. Anyone attempting to shoot for both Associations will be disqualified.

2) Shooters must use a shotgun promoted by the organization they choose to represent. Those shooting A.H. Fox guns and representing the AHFCA are limited to Fox guns manufactured in Philadelphia, PA, Utica, NY and New Britain, CT (CSMC Fox models). Those shooting Lefever guns: Legitimate Lefevers are those guns made by Dan Lefever or one of his companies (Lefever Arms Co. after he left.). This includes Ithaca made Lefever guns with side plates but excludes Ithaca made Lefever Nitro Specials and their derivatives.

3) All those who wish to compete in the 2016 Fox/Lefever Challenge must first shoot the 10-12-16 gauge course at Haussmann’s. This course will serve as the “Qualification Round.”

All shooters must first pay and acquire their score cards from the registration office located in the Hausmann’s garage. You’re simply signing up to shoot the 12 ga course, period. No need to mention the FLC. Before you shoot, bring your scorecard to the Fox tables (located out by the Bo-Whoop stand). Here is where a Fox or Lefever official will register you for the FLC. Immediately after shooting, return your score card to the Fox tables for recording. After tabulating, it will be returned to the registration desk at Hausmann’s.

Any gun may be used (10 GA thru .410). The gunner will specify the maker and gauge when signing up at the AHFCA tables. You may shoot more than one qualification round (utilizing the same maker’s gun) with a separate signup and fee due each time.

4) Qualification round(s) may be shot all day on Thursday June 2nd and up until 2p.m on Saturday, June 4th. Completed scorecards must be back into the AHFCA tables no later than 2 p.m. on Saturday, NO EXCEPTIONS. A blackboard in place there will rank the lead qualifiers and will be updated as scores are tallied throughout the day.

5) The Top-5, high-scoring Fox and Lefever shooters will be selected for the respective Challenge Teams.

6) The Fox–Lefever Challenge round will be conducted on Hidden Hollow’s 5-Stand field immediately before the Bo-Whoop/WCL Shoot-Offs on Saturday, June 4th @ 3:00. A flip of the coin will decide the first team to shoot.

7) A total of 125 targets will be thrown for each team of 5 gunners. High cumulative score will decide the 2016 winning team. The cumulative score for each team will be calculated as follows: The sum of scores recorded by the Hidden Hollow scorer + the official Lefever scorer + the official Fox scorer. That sum will be divided by three (3) and rounded to the second decimal place. (Each scorer will use a hand operated mechanical counter.)

8 ) In the event of a trap malfunction during a team’s attempt at the Challenge targets, the Hidden Hollow official will void that team’s score and a new round of 125 targets will be shot.

9) The wearing of Eye and Ear protection is required of all competitors.

10) All Hidden Hollow/NSCA rules will apply for ammunition and maximum allowed shot size.

11) All shooters who qualify for the Challenge Team will receive an official Fox/Lefever
Hat to commemorate this epic contest.

11. All shooters must have fun, be safe and conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner becoming of these two, fine organizations!

The most important rule is #11. That's why I'm coming.

Is there going to be a Parker/Fox challenge at the shoot too or just Fox/Lefever challenge?

Why cant you sign up at Hausmann's? I was going to join the Lefever group at Hausman's and shoot my G grade 16--at other venues, such as the recent Southern, one could sign up for Parker or Smith at their tables and then compete. Might get more participation that way.

I couldn't shoot the Fox/Parker challenge last year as I had just joined the Fox club. The rule of having to be a member of the organization for a certain period of time prevents the stacking of the deck so to speak.

Don't think that is really a problem, hasn't been at the Southern. This might also allow these organizations to pick up much needed new members and support. Now, I could shoot for AHFCA as I have been a member for many years, but was hoping to shoot my Lefever( actually have 3). Now we both know that my shooting ability is not going to be an asset to either organization, but I would have liked to join in on the competition, and there are a lot fewer Lefever owners and shooters out there than Fox.

In the early days of the Parker/Smith challenge shooters were signed up that day and given a gun and off to the course. Join the leFever group now and perhaps you will be able to shoot for them.
