These are club matches, not sanctioned by the NRA.  NRA position shooters, NRA prone, cross training F- class shooters, and recreational shooters with light rifles trying the F-class format are invited.  The matches are a subset of familiar NRA position and prone formats scaled to fit 30 minute stages.  The F-class matches are ad hoc estimates of where this evolving sport is headed.  If interest is strong, then properly formatted NRA matches for the sectors can be planned as club matches for 2013.  Eventually NRA sanctioned matches may be pursued when the interest builds to justify the effort.
