AUSTIN, TX — The 2019 A Girl & A Gun Fall Festival Presented by SIG SAUER took place on October 4-6, 209, at Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park Mammoth, KY. Shooters included 79 competitors for the Multigun Challenge and 52 competitors for the Multisport Challenge.
“Although this was our 4th year to host Fall Fest, this was the first year that our match management was completely in-house,” says Match Director Julianna Crowder. “We applied our unique A Girl & A Gun programming to deliver a quality match experience for the competitors. Our sponsors again offered generous prizes and giveaways, and our staff was talented, kind, and hard-working. We couldn’t be more proud.”
The Multigun Challenge featured new and exciting 3-gun, 2-gun, and 1-gun stages. Stage Designer and Range Master John Crowder created fun courses of fire in natural terrain throughout the Park Mammoth property. Assistant Range Master Mike Dell coordinated a staff of over 30 people to ensure the event was fun and safe. While several competitors were sponsored professionals, many participants were shooting their first major match.
