Come Shoot With Us

NIO currently hosts at least 10 scheduled CMSA events each year with approximately 20 riders at each event.  We always welcome new riders and offer new shooters clinics throughout the year.  Clinics have classroom and hands-on components, allowing new riders the chance to get acquainted with this exciting sport.  Our club has a broad range of rider abilities, so there is always plenty of fun and competition at each CMSA level.  We have many non-riders that are part of club as well, and welcome volunteers to help with these events. Our club members participate in parades and perform in Wild West shows as well.  Check out our schedule and join us for an event.  Spectators are always free and welcome!
