This year was the 5th annual Toys for Tots event. The SLSC USPSA program partnered up with the Marine Corps League Det 1305 to successfully raise over $7,500 for the community. For the main three gun event, we saw over 150 shooters come out and support this very worthwhile event. The overall match champion was Shaun Hopkins, top shotgun goes to our aquatics director Kevin Stone, top pistol shooter was Steve Thomas, and top rifle went to the co-director Jared Wood. Small Team (max 4 people) went to Team Flat Broke Shooters (Steve Thomas, Cindi Thomas, Chris Viverette (our Pistol Director and Co-Match Director) and Jared Wood). The Large team winners were full of SLSC members from Alcohol and Gunpowder, Kevin Stone, Todd Dilliard, Mike Haskin, Scott Boas, Harry Bowling, Dave Kwitowski, and Korey Smith. Individual results are available here: https://practiscore.com/results/new/aff1ed1d-81ee-40e2-8c0b-7033925b9b90

The Texas Star side match was yet again a huge hit with the crowd. 71 people gave the Mossberg 590 a run for bragging rights as the top shot. Yet again, Joe Maida held on to his hold at the top with a impressive run of 2.89 seconds with all plates knocked off the star.

This year teams will compete for top honors in two categories - Small Team and Large Team divisions.
For both divisions: All scores will be used and averaged for a total team score. Equal weight to each person's score. Each team competitor must complete all three stages of the main match. Incomplete scores will be dropped. Side matches are not part of the team competition.
Put together your team and choose a team name. At the event there will be a team sign in sheet. Find your team and add your name or if you are the first on your team simply add your team.
All competitors must declare the team they are shooting for PRIOR to shooting. Competitors may participate on more than one team if they shoot more than once and declare which team they are shooting for PRIOR to shooting.
All team participants will also be included in the Individual competition without having to shoot specifically as an individual.
The 2016 Toys for Tots match was held 17-19 November. Another hugely successful event for the partnership between SLSC, USPSA program and the Marine Corps League Det 1305. We had over 170 people shoot the event. Lots of new shooters came out and had a great time. We had good help from Sanner's Lake Sportsmen's Club members that signed up and volunteered to work the event. On Saturday Southern Bobby-Q came out and provided food for the shooters and staff and donated to T4T as well. Numbers are still being tallied but we raised lots of money for the local community.
