Info for Event Participants

5-stand at Kiowa Creek Colorado
Kiowa Creek separator line

We’re so excited you’re coming for a visit! For most questions, your event coordinator is likely the best point of contact. They should be able to tell you things like whether they are supplying ammunition, what squad you are in, the cost of the shoot, etc.

Here are the main things to keep in mind for your event day on our side of things:

 

  • Complete the release form before coming!!
  • Your event organizer will make you do it in the morning if you haven’t already, so it’s much easier to do it ahead of time. It should take no longer than 5 minutes.
  • Eye and ear protection are required.
  • Check with your group to see if they will be supplying. If not, and you do not have your own, we sell some in the clubhouse.
  • Make sure you reserve a gun ahead of time if you need to rent one!
eyes and ears protection for sporting clays kiowa creek
  • Double check to see if there’s anyone in your group that you can share with. We recommend 2-3 people per gun.
  • Call to reserve: 303.644.4627
  • Pick up your gun rentals before 8:15am (for morning groups) or 12:15pm (for afternoon groups). If rentals are not picked up before these times, they will be released to walk-ins and are no longer guaranteed. 
  • Make sure to bring your driver’s license so that we can make a copy. We will also hold a credit card while you have the gun out and charge it ahead of time ($25) if the group is not covering the cost.
  • Keep track of the gun we give you (indicated by a specific number or letter on the stock of the gun) as that is the gun tied to your credit card.
  • You will have to listen to a quick gun safety talk that is separate from your overall group safety debrief. This usually lasts less than 1 minute. If there is a large group with many rentals, we may give you a colored card to hold onto until after the gun talk, at which point we will trade you the ticket for a gun.
  • IF WE ARE OUT OF GUN RENTALS: Check back in at 8:15am (morning groups) or 12:15pm (afternoon groups) to see if there are any unclaimed guns. If there are not, guns can be shared between 2-3 people so check with members in your group and do your best to spread out the guns that they do have.
Shotgun Shooting Events near Denver
  • Your group check-in will be outside at either the red picnic tables or plastic tables in front of the Pavilion, all of which are easily visible from the parking lot. For morning events, the clubhouse opens at 7:45am and the entrance is at the very front of the building, adjacent from the parking lot.

    • Please do not try to use side or back entrances as they will be locked.
    • Once the clubhouse opens, you may come in and get coffee, grab ammo, get your gun rentals, and anything else necessary.

    Make sure to keep track of your score along the way and tally it at the very end on the bottom of your scoresheet.

    • If we are scoring for your group and receive untallied sheets, they will not be considered.

    Our course can accommodate up to 300 shooters at a single event.

    How far in advance do I need to plan my event?

    ASAP! The more notice you give us, the more likely you are to secure your desired date. Many groups are recurring and therefore are booking a year ahead. Conversely, we don’t recommend booking inside 30 days as most events need at least that much time to get coordinated.

    What is required to reserve a date?

    We need your estimated shooter count and organizer contact info to make a contract. Then the signed contract and designated deposit are required to secure your date/event.

    The minimum deposit is $500, but it varies based on the size and needs of your event. This a non-refundable deposit if canceled within 30-days of your event but does apply to the final balance day of.

    When must I pay for my event in full?

    Payment in full is due the day of your event. Leading up to your event, you just owe the deposit. Much of the final cost is dependent on your final shooter count and the lunch you choose.

    What spaces do you have for events?

    We utilize our main Clubhouse patio for groups under 100 people and our Pavilion for groups 100+. We do also offer a private meeting room for groups/events of 25 people or less. The Pavilion can also be rented for groups under 100 people for a minimum fee.

    Do you provide the ammo?

    In most cases we are able to provide ammo for your event. If you anticipate needing ammo, be sure to reach out early and often as availability and pricing is subject to change. You may provide your own ammo for your group if you wish. Please inform your participants of whether or not they should expect you to provide ammo or purchase their own.

    Can you rent shotguns to participants that don’t have them?

    Yes! We have a fleet of 12 gauge and 20 gauge Beretta shotguns to rent for $25/gun and they can be shared between 2-3 people in a single group. We do STRONGLY recommend participants call ahead to reserve if certain they will be needed as they generally go fast at many of our events. 303.644.4627

    Can we rent golf carts?

    Yes! They’re 4-seater carts and rent for $25/cart. You should plan to reserve these ahead of time as we just have four and they go fast on a nice day. Call us to reserve: 303.644.4627

    Yes! In fact, this is highly recommended to help speed up their check-in process. Click HERE for a direct link to the release that can be sent via email ahead of your event!

    How many stations will you reserve for us?

    Please call us directly to discuss this as it depends on the size of your event. We generally make this final call about 14-days ahead of your event so the stations utilized can more closely match the estimated number of shooters.

    Do we need our own volunteers for our event?

    We do recommend having helpers for events of 50 or more as it is generally helpful. If you have a group of 100 or more, we do require a volunteer for each station used to help with the flow of your event. Feel free to call us with any questions about this! 303.644.4627

    How do we award prizes?

    This is entirely up to you! Every group does it differently but many award 1st-3rd place and last place. Some also break their scoring into what’s called “Lewis Class” where the scores are broken into three (or more) classes (total number of scores broken into thirds). If you have a wide range of ability in your group, this is a fun way to spread out prizes to more of your group.

    Does Kiowa Creek provide the required eye and ear protection?

    We sell eye protection ($8) and ear protection ($.50) but many of our groups choose to either provide it themselves or have a sponsor provide it as part of their sponsorship. Groups are always welcome to purchase it through us; we just ask for advance notice so we can be sure to have enough on hand for your event.

    What happens if it’s windy or rainy the day of our event?

    We are generally a “rain or shine” event place with the exception of severe weather (HEAVY rain or snow). We communicate directly with you if weather becomes an issue and you are always welcome to reach out to us if you are concerned about the forecast for your event day.

    Can we include a committee on all correspondence?

    To ensure consistency on our end, we ask that groups with a committee designate a single individual as the main point of contact. They are welcome to share all info with any others involved.

    Do you send out fliers for fundraiser shoots?

    Absolutely! If you are hosting an event that benefits a charity or is a fundraiser that is also open to the public for signups, please feel free to send us your flier or event info that you would like sent out. We are happy to send it via email to our 18,000+ email subscribers!

    Corporate NSCA-Registered Shoots

    What are the NSCA and CSCA?

    The NSCA is the National Sporting Clays Association. This association records members’ scores in competition, registers competitive shoots, holds a national championship each year, provides a myriad of achievement awards, and promotes the sport of sporting clays.

    The CSCA is the Colorado Chapter of the NSCA. Please visit their website for information on membership and upcoming tournaments.

    What is an NSCA event?

    An NSCA event is a nationally recognized competition shoot in which scores and number of targets shot count toward shooter ranking with NSCA and CSCA.

    What is FITASC?

    FITASC is an international form of sporting clays (part of the ‘Federation Internationale de Tir Aux Sportives de Chasse’ based in France) in which shooters fire from three “pegs,” or shooting locations. A combination of singles and pairs is thrown at each peg for a game total of 25 targets for the course, called a “parcour.” The shooter cannot shoulder the gun until the target is visible. FITASC is a refereed competition.

    What does 626 stand for?

    It stands for 600 rounds, 2 days, 6 clubs. This is a multi-day tournament where, each day, you shoot at 3 clubs, 100 rounds at each club. Your totals from all clubs are added up at the end of the tournament. It’s a great way to get a lot of rounds and punches under your belt. You can choose to shoot in the entire 626 for a shot at winning prize money, or you can pick and choose which clubs you would like to shoot at for fun!

    When are your NSCA shoots?

    We typically host three main NSCA shoots a year in April, June, and August. All three of them have the main, two of them include FITASC and the other one includes 5-stand. We also host a 626 shoot in May.

    Do I have to shoot the main and FITASC?

    No, you can choose to shoot either the main, the FITASC, or both.

    How do I register for NSCA shoots at your club?

    Sign-up through scorechaser.com, unless otherwise posted.

    Can I pay through Scorechaser?

    No, we handle all payments directly the day of. If you are signing up for FITASC, you will need to call us right after you register to provide credit card information to hold your spot.

    Who do I contact if I have specific squadding requests?

    For the majority of NSCA shoots, we handle squadding so you can either note your preferences when registering or give us a call at (303)644-4627 to request people to be in your squad. For the 626, you will have to reach out to Scorechaser directly as they handle squadding.

    When are results released?

    Please allow at least a week for results and payouts to show up through Scorechaser. We have this delay because we wait for any people that may have mistakenly shot in the wrong class, so as to not mess up results and payouts.
