I normally don’t promote specific matches, but there is one coming up that is a benefit for a friend of mine, Jonathan Rubio. Jonathan is a gunsmith at West Texas Ordnance, the company who built my first precision rifle. He has competed in a few PRS matches, so some of you may have met him. He’s a friendly guy, who is always willing to help other shooters. Jonathan survived a terrible car wreck back in January, and this match is intended to help him with the pile of medical bills he accumulated through that ordeal.
Here’s all the details about the match:
Don’t think that just because it’s a benefit that there won’t be great prizes! The projected payout for taking 1st place is $1,000 (based on 50 shooter minimum), and prizes will also go to the other top 5 finishers. The cost to shoot is $100.
This will be a PRS-style match with targets from 150 to 1,200 yards. They plan 7-10 stages with a round count from 100-150. That’s slinging a lot of lead for one day, so there should be plenty of action!
The match is on July 30th and will be held just a couple of minutes south of Midland, TX (physical address is 4108 E CR 160, Midland, TX). Gates will open at 6:30am, with a briefing at 7:15am, and shooting will start at 7:45am.
To register, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with these details:

You can also email email@example.com with any questions you have.
If you’re looking for an excuse to get out and shoot, just tell your wife it’s all for a good cause … because it is. I hope to see you out there!

Cal, can we send a donation to you or an address? Let know with a reply. I hope Jonathan is doing well.Thanks, Elmo.OH, I LIVE IN OHIO and can’t be there.
Hey, Elmo. I appreciate that. I talked to Jonathan, figured out the best way to get a donation to him, and added some instructions to the bottom of the post for those interested in making a donation to help him out. I know most of my readers live hours or even in other countries … so I know everyone can’t make it. But I appreciate your heart to support the guy.
I wish it was nearby, I’d love to take part!
