Every year since its founding in 2009, DEGS has awarded an M1 Garand rifle to one if its members. Usually in January of each year, we get together for our annual awards banquet where we enjoy some good barbeque, swap tall tales about our shooting accomplishments in the past year, and recognize excellence in marksmanship among our members by giving out a few awards. We also hold our Garand Drawing, which is only open to club members.
There are only two requirements to be eligible for the rifle drawing:
- Be a DEGS member in good standing
- Participate in at least five matches (or relays) during the course of the year
Meet these criteria, and you will automatically be entered into the drawing. We usually have 20-25 members in the drawing, which makes for pretty good odds.
