General Q & A's - Information herein is updated often

Will/Can the Mayor or County Judge cancel the event?
There is NO guarantee that officials may attempt to; however a few facts to note that the Foundation and NSC have reviewed together.

State & Local mandates and as per the Gov’s Executive Order G-28 dated June 26, 2020 & July 2, 2020. See below:

Gov Abbott's Executive Order dated June 26, 2020
Refer to section 1. There is no occupancy limits for the following:
f. recreational sports programs for youths and adults.

Gov Abbott's Executive Order updated July 2, 2020: The outdoor gathering in excess was downsized to "10 people" however the section 5 stated below still remained in the order.

Refer to section 5. For any outdoor gathering in excess of 100 people, other than those set forth above in paragraph numbers 1, 2, or 4, the gathering is prohibited unless the mayor of the city in which the gathering is held, or the county judge in the case of a gathering in an unincorporated area, approves of the gathering, and such approval can be made subject to certain conditions or restrictions not inconsistent with this executive order.


How is this considered an approved WhizBang if this is not a 4H club hosting?
Whizbang is a partnership between TPWD & Agri Life/4H. This event has been approved by Morgan (TPWD personnel) as a qualifier for WhizBang finals.  In order to compete in the Whizbang Finals you must comply with those rules and regulations. 
**If you are not a 4H member and compete in the WhizBang portion of our shoot, you are ONLY eligible for placement at this event.   WhizBang event scores for this Championship will be turned in to Morgan and your "official" points will be issued as per WhizBang finals rules.

Per the posted rules: Whizbang Rules date stamped 9/1/2014 Pulled from rules: A Whiz-Bang Qualifier is a shoot that has been approved by TPWD personnel only.

What makes a Cole Pro Gun.  A great deal of effort goes into the enhancement of the action and finish.  A Cole Pro A400 has had its trigger mechanism precisely worked and tuned to give consistent 3.25 pound release and virtually no fail to feed.  The bolt release has been enhanced with a larger button and the bolt is fitted with an enlarged bolt handle or charging handle.   Cole's has also slightly opened the bottom of the receiver to allow for easier loading.  Additionally they usually have the obvious special hydro dipping or cerakoting to achieve virtually any pattern or color one could want.

The TSRA Foundation reserves the right to extend the raffle ticket sales should the reserve not be meet with pre-sales or during the event.  Additional items may be added to the raffle.
