GREAT LAKES PRC

A 2-day Nationally Sanctioned PRS Pro-Series match.  The first match of its type in the state of Michigan.  Registration opens May 21st at 6:00pm EST. 

Brought to you by the same team that runs the Wisconsin Barrel Maker Classic, this match will be similarly focused on providing equal parts typical PRS stages, and well thought out, innovative stages like you’ve never shot before.  We strive for every stage to challenge the shooters skills with a precision rifle while remaining enjoyable, and safe. 

Shooters of all skill levels welcome; however, you must be competent enough to accurately and safely engage targets at distance.
