Columbia, MO – MidwayUSA Foundation’s 2020 Hometown Challenge is an online shoot and sweepstakes for the entire shooting sports community. With just over a week left there are two ways to participate. Purchase a sweepstakes entry for the chance to win over 100 prizes, including ammunition, firearms, apparel, coolers, shooting glasses, and more. Those interested can purchase additional sweepstakes entries as well for additional chances. The second way to participate in MidwayUSA Foundation’s Hometown Challenge is by registering to shoot at your local range. The virtual shoot welcomes all ages and features seven different disciplines. Shooting categories include air rifle, air pistol, trap, skeet, smallbore rifle, SASP rimfire pistol, and SASP rimfire rifle. Additionally, all virtual shoot competitors will earn a sweepstakes entry for participating!
In addition to winning great prizes, this event directly benefits young shooting athletes. All shooter registration and sweepstakes entry fees double as a donation to the MidwayUSA Foundation endowment of the participant's choice and will be matched by the Foundation’s current Matching Program. Shooting teams and organizations can use this event as a fundraiser for their MidwayUSA Foundation endowment. Local gun clubs and shooting ranges can encourage members to compete at their range and choose a shooting team to receive the registration fees. Every donation to a shooting team’s endowment grows the team’s annual cash grant. That grant assists the team with expenses like ammo, entry fees, travel, and more!
Shooting programs and ranges wishing to promote the 2020 Hometown Challenge are encouraged to download logos and flyers on the MidwayUSA Foundation website. In addition, participants can post and share photos from their local range on social media. See the Foundation’s entire toolkit for this event at midwayusafoundation.org/htctoolkit.
Registration for the shoot and sweepstakes are now open at midwayusafoundation.org/htc. This webpage also provides a mail-in registration form and a place to submit your scores. The shooter registration deadline is October 28th and the Sweepstakes deadline is October 31st.
