·The match will be held at the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore in Marriottsville, MD, on September 11, 2021.

· Peer to Peer (P2P) fundraising page is available to each member of your team, and the GSTA staff supports each team member in setting up this resource.

GSTA 9/11  3-Gun Match Format

· This shoot is a three-gun competition consisting of five stations. There will be 10 teams, five shooters (including the team captain). Teams can bring their own firearms, but firearms will be provided at the shoot for those not bringing their own. Ammunition will be provided.

· There are two easy ways for members to reach their goals. One way is to have your friends donate an amount directly to your personalized fundraising page or find a local sponsor or two for your team.

· There will be numerous prizes to include the top fundraising team, top individual fundraiser, top shooting team, top individual shooter, and top sixth person.

· We ask each shooter to raise or donate a minimum of $2,000. It seems like a daunting commitment, but it is really only 40 friends/family/business associates to give $50!

· You will have your own personalized fundraising pages for you and your team members. Contact Trina at trinasolheim@gstadventures.org to set up your pages.

Thank you for being a part of this event and supporting our mission to serve the children of the nation’s fallen. Our promise is that we will provide this service to those we serve as long as the need exists and at no cost to the Gold Star Families.
