Returning to Dixie Doubles in 2022 after a short hiatus is the exciting Target Sprint competition! Shooting on Saturday, November 4, Target Sprint participants run along a marked path, occasionally stopping to fire air rifles at five targets falling from 10 meters, knocking them down completely before continuing the race. The first to cross the finish line wins! This fun event is open to all competitors and non-competitors, ages 10 and up, who have completed a basic rifle safety class.

The fun and popular Target Sprint event returns in 2022!
