What started out a little chilly ended up to be a pretty nice day on Sunday. Scores from Sunday’s match have been posted to both the Practiscore and USPSA web sites, you can see the results by clicking the links. We had a great turn out and it was good to see some old friends back at the range again. I wanted to send out a big thank you to Bob, Brad, Charlie, Bill, Doc, Esther, & Ryan who all made it out on Saturday to help set-up, your help is greatly appreciated!. We also had a big group help tear down after the match, again thank you all!
I also wanted to let everyone know we will be hosting a bonus match this month. Sunday May 19th we will be doing something a little different than the normal USPSA matches. We will have 6 stages of various plate racks set up with a similar format to the Big Dawg challenge coming later in July. Those of you unfamiliar with the Big Dawg match, this is your chance to get a little tune-up and show your stuff. The match will have 2 classes, Limited Pistol (Iron Sights) and Unlimited Pistol(Optics). Each shooter will shoot each plate rack 4 times for time. You can take as many shots as you would like to clear the rack in a maximum of 30 seconds. We will add up your times to calculate the scores for each stage. So total round count will be 144 rounds (if you don’t miss). You won’t want to miss this one, it will prove to literally be a blast.
I had some requests to include the match dates we talked about in the shooters meeting again, so here you go:
2014 Iowa Fall Classic will be held at West Liberty Gun Club August 29th – 31st. We will have 8-10 stages set up with round count between 225 and 275 rounds. We are planning a lot of great things for this event in 2014 after the unfortunate cancellation last year. More details will be coming soon.
2014 Big Dawg Steel Match will be held at West Liberty Gun Club July 24th – 27th. This match is literally a blast every year. With a round count over 300 rounds this is lot of fun and a great chance to improve your draw speed. 15 different plate racks each shot 4 times. More info can be found at www.bigdogsteelmatch.com.
2014 Shoot for Heroes Match will be held at the Brownell’s range on Saturday, June 14th. This is a great charitable event hosted by Cedar Valley Outfitters and Midwest Military Outreach. All proceeds go to support our nations heroes through the Wounded Warrior Project. More info can be found at www.shootforheroes.org.
