Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association

$1.50 per run.
The funds raised are directly proportional to the size of the competition. The larger the competition the more money the club can make.
A shooting competition is made up of several matches:
1. Main Match: each competitor is required to enter this match and will make 3-6 runs depending on the structure of the competition.
2. Shotgun: a competitor chooses to enter this match, which is held in addition to and separate from the Main Match. Each shooter makes 2 runs
3. Rifle: a competitor chooses to enter this match, which is held in addition to and separate from the Main Match. Each shooter makes 2 runs
4. Calvary: a competitor chooses to enter this match, which is held in addition to and separate from the Main Match. Each shooter makes 2 runs
NOTE: Not all competitions will offer all of these matches. Only the main match is re-quired.
The Shotgun, Rifle and Calvary matches provide an opportunity to raise more funds.


Example: Main Match of 50 Shooters, Shotgun 10 Shooters, Rifle 6 Shooters
Main Match
1.50x50x4 =    $300.00
Shotgun
1.50x10x2 =      $30.00
Rifle
1.50x6x2 =         $18.00
                           $348.00

How do we sign up?

How much will we make?

  • Club members will never be in the arena when there our horses competing. CMSA requires that no one other than the Range Master be in the arena during competition.
  • Ammunition is made to only travel 20ft. Balloon setters are stationed in a location well out of the range of fire.
  • Hearing protection is recommended.

The broken balloon targets need to be replaced after each contestants run. Your club would be responsible for making sure the course has fresh targets. All nec-essary equipment will be provided by the Mid-Ohio Marauders - CMSA.

  • Replace the broken balloons.
  • Put balloons on the balloon sticks
  • Blow up the balloons.
  • Clean up the balloon fragments before the arena is tilled.
