Divisions in the rifle and pistol matches are men's, women's, junior, sub-junior, and old timers. Daily re-entries will be available for rifle and pistol. Prizes and certificates will be awarded for all matches and aggregates.

A raffle will be held for an 1851 Yank Revolver, and a silent auction will feature numerous articles including artwork, knives, historical fur trade era books, housewares and camp equipment.

The public is invited to come watch, observe, shop the vendors and talk with the participants. The log cabin is open to all to see the huge buffalo mount and the log cabin construction.
