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.

Badge Pickup:

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.

Any questions or suggestions – please contact:

High Intensity

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

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.

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.

Private Fireballs

New for Boomershoot 2013 will be the opportunity for a few lucky participants to be able to shoot their own private fireball target at an "entertainingly close" distance on Friday evening.

The first four people to sign up for this unique opportunity will get an experience they will never forget. Feel the heat!

I am working on changes to the entry software. Some nifty changes are in the works. I expect it to be ready no later than the end of June.

When the entry software is ready entry will first be open to staff, then 2012 participants, then to everyone else. The first two groups will receive a few days to choose their positions before the event is opened up to the general public.
