Eddy Brown Steel Challenge

Robin Taylor of Front Sight Magazine blazing away at last year's Eddy Brown Memorial Metal Match.

I got an email from Bill Sahlberg, the Match Director for the Eddy Brown Memorial Metal Match / Idaho Steel Challenge State Championships, and he mentioned that there has been a fairly light number of entries in rimfire for the match.

To encourage more rimfire shooters to join in the fun, Bill has decided to extend the "Early Bird" entry fee amount of $55 for rimfire up to the start of the match. After July 1st. all entry fees went up to $75, but Bill has rolled the rimfire entry fee back to the $55. If you were on the line about if you were going to go or not, here's one more incentive to go shoot in one of the best matches in the Northwest.

There is no cost primitive camping/RV space at the range, and there is a match motel not far away.

Below is the full info on the match, taken from the Steel Challenge web site:



On December 28, 2000 the man responsible for bringing the Steel Challenge Shooting event to Canada and the Northwest died of a massive heart attack at the age of 37 in his home in Cranbrook, BC. His name was Eddy Brown. The Gun Clubs and SPPL here in the Northwest, where Eddy had competed in the past, are holding the 9th Annual Eddy Brown Memorial Metal Match. This year we are combining this Match with the 1st Annual Idaho State Steel Challenge Championship Match.

The Match will be held on July 25-26 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho at the beautiful Fernan Rod and Gun Club. (directions are at
