Please let us know more. A few questions are:

How many benches?
close by hotel/motels with room rate?
If you have to be done by noon, does that mean you will restrict entry to x entrants?
How many cards per match are you planning on? Any tournaments planned?
Computer scoring?
Point of contact ie real name and telephone and/or e-mail adr?

I'm interested as you might well be my closest ARA venue, driving wise. bob

Hello Bob, I was hoping you would see this. I should be totally moved to Delaware in June but I plan to attend this match. Not too far from NEPA.

To answer Bob's questions below...

How many benches?
10 Benches. We usually have 5-7 shooters but can accommodate 10.
Close by hotel/motels with room rate?
The Club Range is on State Road, right next to the Philadelphia Police Academy. Plenty of Hotels and Motels in the immediate area.
If you have to be done by noon, does that mean you will restrict entry to x entrants?
The matches will sometimes go past noon depending how many shooters. We have the range until the match is over.
How many cards per match are you planning on? Any tournaments planned?
We shoot 3 cards. Although nothing is planned, if we get enough people interested, we can possibly have a tournament this summer.
Computer scoring?
No. We manually score the cards.

Point of contact, real name and telephone and/or e-mail address?

The Matches take place at Holmsburge Fish & Game. See link below. It's a very friendly, fun, laid back event with some good shooters. You can call me or any of the Club Directors for more details. Check their newsletters and Club Calendar. Feel free to give me a call with questions.

Are you registered on The ARA site? Its a 4 hour drive...........from here
would be more attractive for 4 targets but that isn't a game breaker.
