The UTEP rifle team will open its range to fellow Miner student-athletes, members of the UTEP Athletic Department, students and fans on Tuesday (October 9).
The event will take place at the UTEP rifle range, located inside the Military Science Building. Participants will receive a UTEP rifle shirt (while supplies last).
This is the fourth time that UTEP rifle has held this event to honor “10.9 day,” to bring awareness to the sport where 10.9 is the highest mark on a single shot a shooter can achieve during a match. USA Shooting has declared Oct.9 (10/9) a holiday for rifle teams around the country.
Individuals who are interested in following along the celebration can follow the @uteprifle page on Twitter and Instagram.
Participants are also encouraged to take pictures of the event and share on the UTEP Rifle Facebook Page with the #Ten9Day.
