Re: 50th annual "Southern Open" FL State Championships

Two weeks left to pre-register for Southern Open State Championships at discounted price (plus free 50th anniversary commemorative t-shirt).

Register online at

We are excited to announce that this year is going to bring back statewide satellite captain's meetings to make this a truly statewide event. Captain's meetings are Friday night June 14 for team check-in (1 person from each team must attend) and we will go over any last minute rule changes. Times will vary by area as we will be staggering the call-ins (see below).

You can pick up your shooter bag and prize table mystery ticket (and t-shirts for any pre-registered shooters registered by June 7th) at weigh-in Sunday if you do not go to main captain's meeting at Little Harbor, Ruskin, FL.

If you do not have a captain's meeting location nearby (within 30-45 minutes) and would be willing to help host in your area PM me your contact information.
