Airgun Shooting League
Open to all SVP Members
Non-member guests and new shooters may shoot up to five evenings to decide if the league is a good fit for them, prior to deciding whether to join or not.
Safety and courtesy are our primary concerns: practice proper muzzle discipline and do not distract those shooting.
We shoot the first and third Thursdays of the month (please see the Club Calendar page) at the Lindenhof.
We also shoot on the fifth Thursday of the month.
Our first relay starts at 5:00 PM,
Shooters should arrive by 6:30 PM
Shooting ends at 7:15 PM on the first Thursday for the SVP business meeting. Shooting ends at 8:00 PM on the third and fifth Thursdays.
Food is available for purchase. Fifth Thursdays are potluck nights.
Fees and Procedures
Adult Fees: $50.00 for annual season pass, or $5.00 per night, or $3.00 for one relay only
Juniors (18 & under) Fees: $20.00 annual season pass, or $3.00 per night, or $1.00 for one relay
Course of Fire: 10 shots per discipline per relay
Shooters pay at the reception desk, then pick up and label targets with your name and discipline. When you are ready to shoot, put your target upside-down on the top of the appropriate stack of targets by discipline. The Range Officer will call your name when your relay is on deck.
Scoring: Shooters place their targets in stacks by discipline on the refrigerator under the TV for electronic scoring.
Medals and Uniforms
Medals are Awarded to SVP member shooters with 10 or more relays shot in a discipline for the year.
Award level (Gold, Silver or Bronze) is based on the total score of the top ten scores submitted (very important to turn in at least 10 scores). More shooting can only help you and the team!
Shoot 10 or more entries in all 5 disciplines, including bow and crossbow at Hickory Grove to become eligible for the pentathlon medal.
Uniforms consist of a German-style hat, long sleeve white shirt, black pants or skirt, hunter green vest & tie (optional).
Vests and embroidery for Vests and Ties may be ordered from S Harris Uniforms, 1025 N. Sheridan, Peoria.
