There were six clubs competing in the matches this year. These clubs are:
  • Blue Water Sportsman's Association of Port Huron in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan
  • Dallas Muzzle Loading Gun Club of Dallas, Texas
  • McKinley Mountainmen Muzzle Loading Rifle Club of Anchorage, Alaska
  • Menominee Ridge Runners from Northern Wisconsin
  • Baraga Blackpowder Bunch shooting at the Ottawa Sportsmen's Club, Michigan
  • Voyageurs Muzzle Loading Rifle Club from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada
Each month shooters from each club fired six shots at identical paper targets (one target per individual shooter). The targets were placed 25 yards from the firing line. The five highest scoring shots on each shooter's target counted toward the target score of 50 points maximum. Each club submitted all its targets to a common scoring person. Every shooter in each club who participated for the month was considered to be "on the team". The best five targets from each club were added to make up the club's monthly score. (The reason for including only the best five is because the six clubs did not necessarily have the same number of shooters each month.) The scoring person returned the targets to the clubs, along with a set of targets for the next month's shooting.
