"Every year we have soldiers from Fort Lewis come to Boomershoot to help teach people marksmanship. Some of those soldiers have been wounded and killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Soldiers Angels helped Joe Huffman's nephew who lost an arm and an eye in Iraq. This is a worthy cause for all of us to support this year through our raffle proceeds."

bulletBoomershoot Mugs
bulletItem’s / Donations from participants

All participants are encouraged to bring an item or two for the Raffle to help support Soldiers Angels.

Dinner guests should arrive early on Saturday evening for check-in as we will be issuing the Boomershoot Entrant Name Badges for you to wear during dinner.

Non-Boomershoot entrants will be issued guest badges at this time.
All issued badges must be worn during dinner so everyone will know your name.

During the Saturday evening dinner check-in, you should be prepared to recite the Safety Rules of the event. Reciting these Safety Rules is “Mandatory,” we take range safety extremely seriously. Failure to recite these “Safety Rules” means no Entrant Badge issued.

Knowing the Safety Rules at Dinner and picking up your Boomershoot 2009 badge on Saturday night rewards you with not having to stand in line on Sunday morning in whatever weather we might be having (Rain, Snow, Wind, and Hail) to recite the Safety Rules and acquire your badge then.

Any questions or suggestions – please contact:

High Intensity

The High Intensity events will be on Friday and Saturday evenings at about 1630. This will allow the main event to run a little longer and to have more targets.

This is what High Intensity is all about:

bulletBoomershoot 2006 -- via Ry
bullet Boomershoot 2007 -- via Jason
bullet Boomershoot 2007 -- via Random Nuclear Strikes
bulletBoomershoot 2007 -- via Thumper242

There is a limit of 50 people total that may participate in each event. This allows us to limit the number of targets I have to allocate and still give people a chance to get "their fair share".

Because shooters are guaranteed a minimum of five targets each there will be an additional cost associated with this part of the event. It will be $50 for each shooter.

If you want to participate in a High Intensity event click a check box for one or both of the High Intensity events when you enter.

These are the bare minimum rules which you must follow while at the event.  You MUST have them memorized. Please read the additional rules and clarifications.

Rivrdog’s "Box-Stock" Rifle Mini-Match


  1.  Use my shooting table and rests.
  2.  Use YOUR box-stock rifle, except that it may have had a bedding job and trigger work. NO barrel work, factory furniture only. Any scope is OK. Your ammo.
  3.  You get 10 rounds at the 375-yd metal target on the West End. You get 15 minutes to fire.
  4.  Entry Fee is $10, of which 100% will be donated to Soldier’s Angels.
  5.  If any ties for First Place, there will be a shoot-off at the end of Field Fire on Saturday.
  6.  Winner will be announced and prize awarded at the Dinner if winner is going, or at the end of Saturday High Intensity if not going.

The match takes place during Field Fire at position #75. Both days. I'll end it early on Saturday if there is a tie to break.

The prize is a (full!) bottle of Highland Park Orkney Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky (12 years old!)

Note: we DO NOT have permission to break any rules regarding transfer of rifles between positions. Move your CASED rifle according to the Rules of the Range.
