Cheyenne BPTRA and .22 Mid Range Matches 2022

2022 Cheyenne Mid Range Matches
Good Day all,
Know this is way early but the Cheyenne Board of Directors wanted it
for the annual newsletter so I thought I would share it with you.

There are no matches in July due to the .22 BPCRA nationals and the
HOTSA/Smithmoor BPCR Silhouette matches at Raton the second week of
July. At least that is when I am told they have requested use of the
ranges at the Whitt. If this changes then my schedule may change also.
Cheyenne Frontier Days is the last full week of July and motels and rooms
are expensive as we have an extra 150,000 people in town during the ten days.

The .22 national Mid Range Championships are projected to be the
Tuesday before the four day Smithmoor .22 Regional and BPCR silhouette
matches start on that Thursday with the BPCR first then the .22
Regional. It is a beautiful time of the year to head to Wyoming and
these matches should be on your travel list. The Smithmoor range is
only 30 minutes from Cheyenne and has camping facilities available at
a ridiculously low cost. A .22 mid range match may be added on the
Sunday after the BPTRA mid Range matches but not for sure at this
time. Stay tuned.

Target shooting is alive an well in Wyoming including the Cheyenne
Rifle and Pistol Club and the Wyoming State Mid Range championships.
We are sanctioned by the Black Powder Target Rife Association and
have, what I believe to be one of the finest mid range facilities.
Just a little over 2 hours South is the home of the BPTRA in Byers and
there are multiple matches, the national Mid Range Championship, the
famous money match and the National Creedmoor Championships are
scheduled trough the summer and early Fall. check out the BPTRA web
site for everything about this organization. There are multiple
matches in Alliance, Nebraska through the summer also. Check them
out, silhouettes, mid range and clang and bang matches.
See ya at the range.


I am no longer following this site except to post this notice or updates about the Cheyenne matches If you need info or
want to comment about these matches please e mail me, not a PM. thanks
