A shooting match competition for all ages.  The Rimfire Challeenge is so called because .22LR caliber firearms are used (without regard for manufacturer).   The match will initially consist of three stages, or mini matches.  They are scored with a shot timer and hits count while misses count against.

The targets will be elevated, static clay pigeons and/or steel rounds.

Both pistols and rifles will be used.  The stages are 5 and 6 rounds each so no magazine changes are required.  Likeways there is no movement required to engage the target arrays.  You can see that a miminal amount of ammunition will be required for the day.  Those wishing to shoot more will certainly be able to do so.

Adults and children of any age (with parents, of course) are welcome.  You will need your own firearm, ammunition and eye and hearing protection.
