We've just been advised by the Whittington Center that they have closed the area that we hold the Sporting Rifle Match due to high fire danger. This means that tomorrow's AR match and the regular Sporting Rifle Match are cancelled. Sorry for the late notice, but we only heard minutes ago.

Bad news. The Whittington Center has decided to close the area that we hold the Sporting Rifle Match to all shooting events for the remainder of this year and possibly further into the future. Therefore, all scheduled regular Sporting Rifle Matches, Sporting Rifle AR matches and the Sporting Rifle Team Match are cancelled for 2018. The Magnum Rifle match which is held on the front side of the Whittington Center will continue as currently scheduled. We will post any developments regarding the future of the Sporting Rifle Match here as well as the Match Website. (sportingriflematch.com)

So as of now Mike is working on a few options that are still in progress and the outcome will not be known till the end of July best case .

For everyone that has shot this match and would like it to continue the best way to help now is to email the NRAWC and express your dissatisfaction with what is going on . The contact email address are below ,

Josh Adams - Exec Director - JADAMS@nrawc.org

Ken Mestas - Program Director - KMESTAS@nrawc.org

Two things to include in your emails is the location of the match was as much of the draw as the match itself and why now is fire danger an issue when it hasn't ever been in the past 14 1/2 year even when Raton pass burned .

Please be polite as they have a generally good opinion of us as a group down there now and being a dick about it is not going to help .
