We will NOT be having a traditional prize table, and shooters will be notified during the match if they are a prize table recipient. Shooting is set to conclude before 1:00PM on Sunday, with awards slated for 2:00PM or sooner. Ideally, this gets competitors on their way to the airport or on the road earlier than we’ve been able to do in previous years.
