Open Invitational:  The shoot is open to any safe shooter. (UPMLA membership is NOT required to participate.)

Date:  Saturday, October 8, 2022
         (Scheduling conflicts in 2022 require a change from the usual first Saturday date.)

Time:  Registration 10:30 AM (Eastern time zone). Shooting begins at 11:00 AM.

Fee:  There will be no entry fee.

Events: Because the weather in October can be erratic and unpredictable, all four events may be held in the Ottawa club's indoor shooting range.
  1. Muzzle Loading Firearm:   Six shots at a paper target. Standing offhand position. Five best hits will count for score.

  2. Muzzle Loading Firearm:   A "Best-X" partner shoot. Each partner will fire two shots at a paper target from standing offhand position. Partners will be selected semi-haphazardly on site.

    For Events 1 and 2 firearms must be traditional muzzle loading firearms --sidehammer or underhammer, flint lock or percussion cap lock, rifled or smoothbored, having open sights, using patched round lead balls. Peep and optical sights are generally not permissible. Handguns are not permissable. Contact organizer (see below) with any questions about what may be acceptable.

  3. Traditional Hawk and Knife Throwing:   Three throws with hawk and three with knife. Five best throws will count for score.

  4. Traditional Longbow Shooting:   Six shots with longbow. Five best shots will count for score.
Awards:  This year, no awards will be given for individual or for team performance. The perpetual traveling UPMLA Memorial Trophy will go to the individual with the highest aggregate score for events 1, 3, and 4.
