Latest news:  Scott Schneider takes PCP Hunter win in 2018 AAFTA Grand Prix; Jim Cyran medals in 2018 Pyramyd Air Cup

Welcome to the homepage of the Sacramento Valley Field Target Club

The SVFTC is a group of northern California airgun enthusiasts promoting airgunning as a sport. The main events of the club are the monthly field target matches from March to November (weather allowing).

If you are interested in participating or would just like to learn more, please feel free to drop us a line!

Jim Cyran and Scott Schneider, match directors for the club, do a masterful job of keeping us happy ... and well-fed!

Here is  Jim's pre-season message for 2018:
We are coming off a great 2017 season where several of our club members distinguished themselves at the National Championship in Phoenix, none more so than our own Scott Schneider who is the National Hunter Class Champ and shot the highest score of the Match.

We hope to continue this trend in 2018 as we have many up and coming shooters who have the talent to challenge the best in the country. Scott and I plan on having matches that will challenge the best of us while making sure that our newest shooters have a fun time.

Below is our match schedule for 2018. Again we will be alternating matches between the Sacramento Valley Shooting Center in Ione and the Yolo Sportsman's Club in Davis. All of the matches are on the fourth Sunday of the month with the exception of July where there was a conflict with the date and we chose to shoot the match on the 15th. This conflict resolution worked to our benefit as it removed a conflict with the Oregon State Championship GP Match (one of our favorites) so we now have no conflicts with Western AAFTA GP matches. The dates of those matches are listed below as well.

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2018. In the meantime you can relive the 2017 season in our Archives HERE.

Jim and Scott
