Planning Update – Nov 2017

A big thank you to everyone that came out and supported the USPSA/IPSC group at Wayne County Raccoon Hunters this summer.  The new bays provided space that had not previously been available, making stages even more challenging.

There is one last regular-season match planned for 2017, our traditional Chili Cook Off.  Weather permitting, we will host up to 60 competitors for a 6 stage, 160 round USPSA match.  Squadding is online now at Practiscore.  Bring a pot of your best chili to the match and receive a discount on registration as well as a chance to win cash prizes.  After match tear down, competitors will assemble in the club house to enjoy what has traditionally been some excellent chili.  Everyone will have an opportunity to sample the various chilis and vote for their favorite.

A big thank you goes out to our newest match sponsor, T-Rex Arms of Belleville for allowing IPSC66 members the opportunity to get some winter trigger time in at their indoor range.  We really appreciate your warm hospitality.

2018

The planning crew is already in full swing with some special matches in 2018!

Berm Racer 2

A USPSA Level I match that will be held June 22-24, 2018. Each competitor will shoot 12 stages plus chrono on either Saturday or Sunday.  This is a full day of shooting that will require at least 300 rounds.  (no half day options)

Some of the things people liked at our last Berm Racer Match will be continued such as: random-draw prizes including 50 pistols, division winner plaques, catered lunch, dedicated ROs, and random squadded sponsored shooters.  As only 250 competitors can register for the match, each shooter will have a 1/5 chance of winning a pistol for simply showing up.  Additional pistols will also be raffled off – this is a fund raiser after all.

Payment of $200 is required to guarantee a slot so click here to download the registration form and mail your payment to Roy.  Slots have already begun to fill so register yours here and send your payment in soon to squad with your friends.

2 Gun Match

The 5th Sunday 2-Gun match went over well in 2017 and will be continued in 2018.  IPSC66 will host three 2-Gun matches:  April 29, July 29, and September 30.  The same rules and scoring will apply.  2-Gun matches are limited to 60 people so be sure you’re receiving registration emails from Practiscore and following us on Facebook.

 

We hope that everyone has enjoyed the 2017 shooting season as much as we have and we look forward to seeing you at our practice sessions and matches in 2018.  Happy holidays!

 

October 2017 Special Events

Pat Morris AR-15

Keep your eyes open next Monday for the IPSC66 October 22 registration email.  The AR pictured above was custom built by Pat Morris and will be given to one lucky match registrant.  The cost of the match is $15 above the usual and yes, you must be present to win.  After completion of the required paperwork, the random-draw prize winner will actually go home with this beauty as displayed with scope and magazine.

You’ll want to get this baby out ASAP if you’re the winner so be sure to register for the following Sunday’s 2-gun match.  With 5 Sundays this month, the match planning committee decided it would be fun to do something special as many of you prepare for deer season.  What better way to show off than with this amazing custom built gun?

June 2017 Match Pictures

It’s been a while since we’ve had the opportunity to post pictures from a match.  Thanks to Paul S for taking the pics and giving them to us to share

June 2017 Update

Last month was our annual Special Classifier match and the first official match that utilized our newly finished bays.  A lot of people complained about putting classifiers in such a large open space but don’t worry, this month’s match on June 25th will utilize the space.

Our matches are always the fourth Sunday of the month unless of special circumstance and the email for for registration goes out the preceding Monday.  If you have not been getting updates of our matches you should:

This month we’re back to the standard – 9 field courses requiring 24-32 rounds each and an anticipated round count of 245.  We will be using the new bays so anticipate some long shots in addition to the usual steel and movers.  Because we have a number of new shooters joining us this season we’ll translate that last bit for you – bring more than 245 rounds of ammo, you’ll need it.  If you bring 350-400 rounds you should be okay barring excessive misses or reshoots.

Reminders:

The Wayne County Raccoon Hunters Club (IPSC66) is hosting a USPSA level I RO clas July 29 – 30.  The class costs $40 (US) and is open to any current USPSA members.  The RO class is a great way to learn the rules and get comfortable with the range commands.  Contact Roy Neal if you’re interested in attending.

We have free practice on Thursday evenings from 5:30 – 8 p.m.  You don’t have to be a USPSA or WCRH member to join our practice sessions.  Eye and hearing protection is required!  We are happy to host new shooters looking to join in the excitement and fun that USPSA has to offer but safety is our first concern so if you’re not familiar with USPSA we strongly suggest coming to practice before attending a match.  (We hate sending people home for avoidable safety infractions but will)  It is also the best way to learn about the right gear needed to participate in each division – a very valuable lesson!

 

 

 

2017 Pre-Season Update

The IPSC/USPSA shooting season doesn’t (officially) start at Wayne County Raccoon Hunters (WCRH) until April and already things are buzzing along.

Construction on the new bays has been on-going through the winter and everyone is hopeful that they will be ready in time for our first match.   – scheduled for April 23.  They are significantly larger than our other bays so get ready for some longer shots and plenty of movement.  The bays have taken up some parking space so…

We will continue to use the Practiscore pre-registration this year.  If you are not on the list to receive the email updates you should send your information so that you are alerted when registration opens.  If you show up at a match and did not pre-register you will not be squadded unless someone who was registered doesn’t show.  If you register – show up!  We understand that life happens and will overlook an occasional no show.  A call before the match is appreciated so we can notify people on the wait list of openings.  Our matches are the best thing you can do in south-east Michigan on the fourth Sunday of the summer months and we want to provide the opportunity to participate to as many as possible.  Habitual no-show offenders will be given notification and squadded last for future matches.

Canadian IPSC shooters are welcome at our matches and will need to complete the appropriate forms before crossing the border with their guns & ammo.  The Invitation Letter for Michigan’s USPSA matches is available to download and print from the link below.  There are other forms to complete and procedures that visiting shooters must follow.  Contact Roy or one of your fellow Canadians for the details.  Be sure to leave extra time to cross the border when transporting your guns and gear – sign in for our matches closes at 09:30 and shooting starts at 10:00 a.m. whether everyone’s there or not.

2017-Canadian_Invite_Letter

WCRH is proud to have enough member RO and CROs to assign to each squad at our matches.  This allows visiting shooters the opportunity to have fun without the distractions of ROing or scoring your friends.  We certainly do appreciate the help that visiting ROs and CROs offer, however.  If you want to take the level 1 – RO or level 2 – CRO NROI training now is the time to pencil it in.

A Level 1 – RO class is (tentatively) scheduled for 8-9 April – location to be determined

A Level 2 – CRO class is confirmed for 4-5 March at Oak Hill Gun Club.  The cost is $40 (US) and you can register here

We will post the Level 1 class details on our Facebook page as soon as they’re confirmed.

The USPSA group at WCRH will continue to host open practice on Thursday evenings.  If you’re new to the sport check out the new shooter overview then show up with your gear.  We love bringing new shooters into the sport and think that the best time to learn is at a low-stress practice session – not a match.  There isn’t an official start date for practice so keep an eye out here, on Facebook, or subscribe to receive updates in your email’s in box.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!

P.S.

If USPSA-style shooting is too fast or competitive for your liking or being up on Sunday mornings isn’t your thing, check out the WCRH’s IDPA program.  Like us, they are a nice group of people that are happy to introduce new shooters to their sport.  No matter what sport you choose at WCRH safety is our first concern followed by fun.
