Hope all shooters will continue to support The Guardian Long Range Matches. Awesome matches for a great cause. So many children benefit from the adoption and foster care services the organization provides. Most the matches for 2019 are two days, which I am excited to see! I shoot many matches, PRS, club matches, gas gun, but the Guardian matches are my favorite. Fun!!

Cannot say enough good things about this match. Went to the Michigan match last year - my first rifle comp - and loved every second. Laid back, enjoyable, welcoming...heading back again this year.

Still waiting on dates for the December match, @garyalarson ! I can't plan for the match without requesting vacation, and I can't request vacation without dates! I'd LOVE to go, but need this info before I can do anything! Will we have dates for the match soon so I can make sure I can try to get them off? Thanks!

Has anyone heard anything about Guardian since they split with Bethany? Nothing new on the site and no date for Az.

Nope, completely dead air on the AZ stuff. I'll admit that while I've always wanted to try a Guardian match and absolutely everything I've heard about them is positive, the complete silence (not even an "we're note sure yet") from them on the AZ match date/location is a little off-putting. It's literally impossible to plan for time off if I don't know when I need to request it, so...

Anyone going to the tennessee match? if so what hotels are good??
Went to the match last year that Frank was at. Hate I couldn’t make it this year. There is a couple good hotels across the line in Athens, AL.

Very nice facility and all the stages were within 150 yards of each other.

Apologies for not being more clear on the Arizona match dates/details. We dropped the ball on that one. The Arizona match has been pushed out to February 2020 to make sure the newly elected board is focused on getting year-end items completed as we transition to a non-profit. Doing this will also ensure the Arizona match is covered under the non-profit umbrella, allowing shooters to get a tax-donation for their registration. Appreciate all y'all being patient as we transition - and appreciate the excitement to attend the Guardian matches. If you have any additional questions - feel free to text me personally or shoot me an email. Thanks in advance, and sorry we didn't communicate better.

Went to the Guardian site and it shows March 28-29 2019 at Cowtown range already sold out.

I just checked a week ago and there was no date, now sold out?

WTF?
