- 2nd prize - 30-06 Howa

UPDATED: Just for fun, since this year is the 5th anniversary of our Chili Cook-off, Hot Wells Shooting Range is having an 'Open Game' category added to the competition. This will be a separate competition in addition to the Chili category. The judges have clarified this category has NOTHING to do with Chili. Any way you want to dish up your Open Game the choice is up to to you. You will need to state what type of meat it is you're using AND the judges will have the right to pass-up tasting your recipe so, let's not get too exotic.
That being said, the only differences in this category is the type of meat you'll use, how you cook it up and the award you'll win. One lucky Grand prize winner for this category will walk away with a fine looking trophy so, ya'll will have braggin' rights!
Gates to the Range will open at 7 a.m. Check in will be no later than 8 a.m. You can register either online with Paypal, a credit card, OR at the Range House. Registration for each team is $40. So gather up your team, create your team's name banner and get ready!
Thank you all for helping us kick off the Polar Bear League this week! We hope to keep the remainder of the league flowing just as smoothly. Please click on the 'READ MORE' link below for some helpful reminders
We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
