[We] are just six weeks away from the match and we are adding great sponsors daily. Sportsman’s Warehouse has just jumped on board. This will be a one-of-a-kind field-style PRS match. Come join us and make a mini-vacation out of it. Grand Junction and the surrounding area have plenty to offer. Registration is on Practiscore.
The terrain at Cameo Shooting Complex is typical of Western Colorado and will be a picturesque venue for the match.
