John Wallace Cup

Our big event, a Garand-only match in honor of one of our founding members. Held every year in June.

Garand Clinic

We start the season with a clinic, and we have experienced shooters who will help you out with your marksmanship at every match.

Everyone is Welcome

Membership in our club is not required, and you may shoot any safe rifle that allows you to follow the course of fire.

Loaner Rifles & Gear

We encourage new shooters to come out and try a match, and we will loan you everything you'll need .

REMEMBER: DEGS members who shoot in five DEGS matches during 2017 qualify to win a Garand in our annual raffle! The drawing is held at the yearly club banquet, time and date to be announced.

Match Location: Paradise Hunting Preserve, 3993 Bill Adams Road, Grimesland, NC 27837. See map for details.
