The fourth annual Shoot Down Cancer will be held from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., Monday and Tuesday, May 23-24 at Shooters indoor range. All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Augusta.

Participants may choose recreational or competitive shooting. The competitive event was designed by organizer Zoble Morris to be fun and unusual. The Lewis system of scoring will be used, meaning all levels of expertise will have a chance to win a trophy.

A $25 donation to the Relay For Life provides free use of the shooting range, target, eye and ear protection, plus tips from a certified NRA instructor.

Prior registration is required to participate, and can be made by calling 706-496-4553 prior to arriving at Shooters.

Guns may be rented and ammo may be purchased at the facility. Participants may bring their own unloaded guns and ammunition. All handgun calibers are allowed. Rifle caliver maximum is 7mm magnum. No telescope, red dot or holograph sights are allowed, only open sights. A gun with mounted scope may be used if lenses are covered.

For the competition, the highest one-third of all scores will be “A” class, the middle one-third will be “B” class and the lower one-third “C” class. First, second and third place trophies will be given in each class.

For more information, call Morris at 706-496-45
