Raffle proceeds will be donated to the support of Project Valour-IT of Soldiers Angels. You may purchase raffle tickets without attending the dinner. You or a delegate must be present during the raffle to win.

"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."

Raffle tickets will sell for $1.00 each, 12 for $10.00, & 25 for $20.00.

50 / 30-10-10 50% to support Soldiers Angels and 30%-10%-10% raffled to three lucky participants.

 Boomershoot memorabilia to be raffled includes:

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 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.

Sign up for dinner here by April 21, 2012.

High Intensity

The High Intensity events will be on Friday and Saturday evenings at about 1630.

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".

Shooters are guaranteed a minimum of five targets each there. The price is $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.

October 23, 2011

The Precision Rifle Clinic is open for entries now and quite a few people have already signed up.

There are still 23 positions left for the main event on Sunday. Sign up here.

September 1, 2011

The event is nearly 60% full with entries from returning 2011 participants. Sign up for everyone begins tonight at 6:00 PM Pacific time.

Typically this will completely fill up within a couple days. There will probably be a few random positions open up again in the January to March time frame as people have changes in their plans but you stand a better chance of getting a position that suits you if you sign up early.

Assuming no more flaws appear in the software the schedule for registration is as follows:

Registration opened for staff 8/28/2011 9:00:00 AM Pacific Time.
Registration opens for previous year participants 8/29/2011 6:00:00 PM Pacific Time.

July 10, 2011

I am working on changes to the entry software. I want to make it a "shopping cart" like the rest of the world.

When the entry software is ready I will send an email first to staff, then 2011 participants, then to the announcement list. The first two groups will receive a couple days to choose their positions before the event is opened up to the general public with the email to the announcement list.
