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.

Starting with the June 26, 2016 match, online registration and squadding is required. The Monday or Tuesday prior to the match, registration will open and you can register and squad. You still need to check in at the range building to pay and verify your info.

Registration and squadding will be done through the Practiscore website. The link will be posted in the Brian Enos forums, Practiscore website, our facebook page, and a bulk e-mail will go out via our NEW Google Group! If you would like to be added to the Google Group please request it. The group is IPSC66.WCRHC.

Please be respectful, if you actually register for the match PLEASE show up. If you do not show up you will be required to pay those match fees before you can shoot another match. Cancellations are allowed but please leave us time to notify the wait-list shooters.

2016 Season Begins!

The IPSC66 have been working the past two months in preparation for the 2016 pistol season.  To our friends in the south and west, YES, we actually have a “season”.  The first group work day was primarily the USPSA group (and a few WCRH members) building 40 new walls.  We’ll need all those walls if progress continues on the addition of another bay.  Yes, the dog pond has given way to a new bay.  The planning group that meets each month before a match is already giddy thinking of things to set up in this significantly larger bay.  The second work day was an official WCRH event that involved all club members building new target stands, cleaning the storage sheds, finding home to too many walls, and maintenance of steel.  The WCHR board of directors approved the purchase of new steel for use at IDPA and USPSA matches.  Speaking of matches…

Official USPSA matches begin April 24th and continue the fourth Sunday of each month through October.  Stages and round counts are generally posted on the IPSC66 facebook page approximately one week prior to a match.  Most of our matches are around 200 rounds but some have gone as high as 500!  Check the page and don’t run short of ammo. Registration will be at the same time (0830-0930) at the range house.  The range house is inside the pistol bay area and is designated a cold-range area.  Use the CPL unload area (if needed) before entering; we don’t want you to go home before the match starts. We recommend that you arrive early if you plan to squad with your friends.  In an effort to prevent bottlenecks, IPSC66 actively manages squad size.  When a squad is full, it is full unless approval by the match director is obtained.  Canadian IPSC shooters must print the 2016 invitation letter in addition to any other required forms for crossing the boarder with firearms.  Non-WCRH members participating in any event are required to sign the liability disclosure.  We use the Nook Practiscore system; allowing us to (generally) post scores within hours after completion of a match.  It takes time to program the system with squads and stage requirements so a fairly strict cut off of 0930 for registration is adhered to.  If you’re running late, call a friend to get you registered and squadded.  WCRH embeds NROI certified range officers with each squad, allowing visiting shooters to enjoy shooting and socializing; not working the match.  That is not to say that visitors are not expected to help paste and reset stages or tear down when done.

If you have not been to a USPSA match, we strongly suggest that you attend a free Thursday night practice.  Experienced practical pistol shooters and certified range officers will explain the safety rules, range commands, and provide an introduction to USPSA rules.  We meet Thursday evenings, weather permitting, from 1730-2000.  Bring your unloaded gun, magazines, mag-pouches, eyes, and ears.  All skill levels are welcome.

 

 

August 2015 Update

WCRHC 08-23-2015 match will have 8 field courses and 1 classifier. Round count is ~213rds.

Registration will open at 8:15 and will close PROMPTLY at 09:30am. If you are running late please contact someone with your info (Name and Division at least) and have them let us know at the registration window. I do not like sending people home because they arrived after registration is closed but we need time to sync all the scoring machines.

Shooters meeting at ~9:45am and shooting to start at 10:00am.

We are sad to report that we have lost another friend and shooter. Jeff Douglas passed away last week. Some of our members were able to pay our respects this past Sunday. Our best wishes go out to his Family and Friends in this time of Mourning.

Fund Racer Winners – All

Thank you to everyone that came out to the fund racer match over the July 4th weekend.  In addition to a great time shooting with friends, the intention of the match was to raise funds for improvement to the pistol bays at Wayne County Raccoon Hunters.  Some very generous sponsors made sure that everyone who attended the match went home with something and a number of lucky shooters left with certificates for a new gun!

Congratz to the division and class winners!  Although this was a level I match, plaques and medals were awarded as follows:

  • Lesgar M was the overall winner and open division first place followed by Jake D and Robert P
  • Mike D took first in Limited followed by Matt K and Nicholas M
  • Russel M was tops in Production with Jim B and Matthew D in second & third respectively
  • Evgueni K finished first in Single Stack followed by Anatoli K and Roy N
  • Mauro P and Florante T topped the field of Limited 10 participants
  • Geoffrey S finished first in the small but important field of revolver shooters
