Covington, GA -(AmmoLand.com)- In conjunction with Atlanta 3-Gun and event founder Jordan Blake, 3-Gun Nation is proud to announce its sponsorship of the “Salute to Valor” 3-Gun match, to be held Nov. 13-15 at South River Gun Club in Covington, GA.
The A3G Salute to Valor is a 3-Gun match designed to honor our Veterans, and to provide assistance and support to six 501(c) 3 Veterans’ charities that are working hard to bridge the gap between available federal resources and the actual needs that exist. These are community-based, privately-funded organizations that have identified those needs that aren't being met and are working passionately and diligently to do just that.
In addition to raising money, A3G Salute to Valor hopes to raise awareness and increase exposure for our partner charities.
“This event will be unique in many ways and we are very grateful to be given the opportunity to stand behind this mission,” said 3GN President Pete Brown. “Chris Palmer of Atlanta 3-Gun and Match Director Jordan Blake are sure to put on a great event for a good cause, and 100-percent giveback to our war fighters is what this event is all about.”
Join A3G in November and take part in this new, unique 3-Gun competition. Rather than using the traditional 3-Gun format, the A3G Salute to Valor will be broken down into four, three-stage “Segments” that are measured and scored individually under the 3-Gun Nation Practical Division rule set. Come and test yourself against some of the best shooters in the country in special segments dedicated to Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, and of course: 3-Gun.
Approximately 180 shooters will form 12 squads that will be further broken down into six teams. Each team will represent one of our six charities. The winning team’s charity will receive 20-percent of the collected funds, with the other charities dividing the remaining fund pool evenly.
The fund pool is being raised through match fees, cash donations, sponsor merchandise donations (which will be auctioned at pre-match online auctions and event-day raffles), as well as merchandise sales. Since this is a charity match, there will not be a traditional prize table, but match fees and sponsor donations will be tax deductible, as a charitable donation, to the full extent allowed by law. All shooters will receive a shooter packet for their participation containing a commemorative shirt, challenge coin, and a one-year complimentary 3-Gun Nation annual membership (existing 3GN members will receive 3GN merchandise). Trophies will be awarded for First, Second and Third place finishers in each Segment and Overall.
Spectators are encouraged to come out to the event and see some of the best shooters in the country compete over the course of the three-day match. A selection of vendors and other Veteran’s organizations will also be onsite for competitors and spectators to visit and talk to.
