African Safari Tournament :: Good Odds

From the looks of our blog, many of you had a very successful hunting season. We always love to hear that you improved your shot due to shooting rounds at SRRG, but even more we love to share in your excitement of shooting wall-worthy trophies.

Speaking of success, we are excited to be hosting the upcoming Safari Tournament. Everyone who enters is going to have a chance to win, no matter how many times you have been to SRRG or what division you shoot. Your chance of winning some type of prize is very high, even if it is not the $8,000 hunt. Second place receives a $600 Sheep tag on the Goring Ranch, 3rd place receives a Vortex scope, over a $400 dollar value, and fourth place receives a $150 Sportsman’s Warehouse Gift Card.

The three top scores won’t be the only ones with prizes. Each contestant receives two complimentary raffle tickets which go to the biggest raffle we have had yet. The prizes will include over $600 of Sportsman Warehouse outdoor gear and certificates.

In addition to the tournament prizes, we will also be running side pots. For those that don’t know what this is all about let’s just say it is a great way to make extra money on the day based off a couple shots versus your entire score. Many a participant has walked away with a few extra dollars in his pocket from this unique tournament feature.

Let me also put to rest some of your concerns.

What if I haven’t been to the course as many times as other competitors? This does not matter. We are changing the course shots to make it fair for everyone. We are adding different targets, in different locations, with different size plates.

Will I be at a disadvantage if I am a Classic shooter competing against Master shooters? No, you will not be at a disadvantage. To make this fair we have set up all the targets within classic shooters distance, 75-500 yards. We may even throw in a few timed stations.

If I don’t win the tournament I am out $150 dollars: False. Three winners will go home winning equal or more than what they put into the tournament. More than 20 other raffle winners will walk away with prizes worth $30-50, making this tournament no different than any other tournament in price. AND most importantly, the price is not the reason we choose to hunt and shoot, it is great memories and experiences we receive together. This tournament is sure to be memorable and there might not be a tournament like this in the next couple of years. What would be better than shooting African targets, with the goal of an African hunt, and not to mention a first class hot meal?

Your odds of winning are great. If you are into statistics here is something to think about. We are planning on a total of 50 shooters, so far we have filled half of the slots….you do the math, your odds of winning something are pretty good. If you are sitting on the fence give us a call today to secure your slot. It is going to be a very memorable tournament.

See you at the course! May the same luck from hunting season trickle over into the tournament competition.

Special Note: Regardless of weather conditions the tournament will proceed. Plan on bringing appropriate gear.
