2015 Club Team Postal Matches
The UPMLA sponsors a team postal competition among several muzzle
loading clubs. The competition includes matches taking place
monthly for six months, January through June.
There are seven clubs competing in the 2015 season:
How it works: Each month, all the
shooters at each club fire six shots at individual paper targets
placed 25 yards from the firing line. The five highest scoring
shots on each target will be counted toward the individual target
score of 50 points maximum.
After its monthly shoot, each club mails the targets from all of
its shooters to the competition scorer. The five highest-scoring
targets from each club are totaled to make up the club score,
which is used to determine the monthly winning club. The scorer
mails the targets back to the clubs along with a tally of the
scores from the other clubs, amd with a set of targets for the
next month's shooting.
The targets often show a good bit of imagination and artistry.
Some careful planning before shooting may be necessary to
decide how to place the shots to maximize the score.
The competition is for fun and glory.
Summary scores for the teams may be posted in the News and Notes
section of the UPMLA web site. (Link to 2015
