2015 Season Spring Update

Now that (most of) the snow is gone and the temps are warm enough to shoot outside without a heavy coat, the practical shooting season is starting at WCRH.

April 4th Work Day

Actually, things get into full swing tomorrow, Saturday April 4th about 0900 when the IPSC & IDPA gang will get together to build more walls and a new shed to hold them.  I know right; what is it with all these walls?  Seems like we add 20-30 new walls every year.  Probably because we do.  The “see through walls” are safer, more durable, and certainly more esthetic than stacked barrels.  Jason P and Shawn D are going to be busy making all those heavy duty stands.  Hours helped count towards the membership requirement and something interesting is sure to happen with so many power tools, hot glue, and pocket knifes in use.

Thursday Practice Resumes

One of the nice things about USPSA at WCRH is the free practice on Thursday evenings.  If all holds up, we are planning to start practice nights again Thursday, April 9th at 5:30 PM.  New shooters can come out and learn about USPSA practical pistol shooting in a low stress environment.  Experienced shooters can get some real rounds down range before Battle in the Bluegrass and Indiana Production/Single Stack/Revolver match.

Oak Hill RO Class

Practical shooting is a such safe sport in-part because of the people that run matches. ROs issues range commands, oversee competitor compliance with the written stage briefings, and closely monitors safe competitor action.  While NROI certified ROs are not mandatory at level I (local) matches, we generally like to have a minimum of one RO assigned to each squad and usually have two.  The first step to certification is maintaining your USPSA membership.  Next, you take a class put on by NROI.  Oak Hill Gun Club in Portland, MI is hosting an official RO (level I) class on June 20-21.  ROs that assist at IPSC66 matches receive a discount on match registration and there is no better way to learn the rules.

July 4th Fund Racer Match

If you have not heard, we’re having a two day, 18 stage, 500 round match over the July 4th weekend to raise money to improve the berms.  Also, if you have not heard, the match registration of 100 people is full.  Match participants will have a chance to win one of fourteen guns from Glock, FNH USA, Sig Sauer, and Springfield Arms.

July 4th Fund Racer Match

The members of IPSC 66 at Wayne County Raccoon Hunters are holding a special USPSA match over the July fourth weekend 2015 to raise money for some needed improvements to the pistol bay’s berms.

The match will be shot over two days of July 4th & 5th and have 18 stages that require a minimum of 500 rounds.  Competitors will shoot 9 stages each day over the two day event. Food will be available for purchase and prizes for first, second, and third place for each division will be awarded at conclusion of shooting & posting of scores.  Class prizes may be awarded depending on level of registration.

The match’s planning group is talking to some generous sponsors about bag prizes.  There has been talk of a gun or guns (plural) in the mix as a possible random draw prize.  This will be a great way to spend the holiday weekend and possible take home a new gun!

This match is limited to the first 100 paid registrants so get your registration in soon.

October’s Rogue 40s Match

As it is a usual tradition at WCRH, the October match will be a higher than usual round count.  The Rogue 40s will be eight (8) stages that are 40 rounds each and a possible classifier for a minimum round count of 320.  (we suggest you bring more than 320)  For those that shoot single stack, production, or limited 10; bring a lot a mags.  We will be holding competitors to the USPSA equipment guidelines for placement and capacity.  A number of 9 mm production shooters with fewer than 6 mags may wish to register as Limited – Minor and load those mags full.  Sorry single stack and revolver, there isn’t much options for you.

Set up for this match will be Saturday at 1400 hrs (2 PM).  For WCRH members, this may be the last chance to get you work hours in for the year.

Registration for the match is Sunday morning from 0830 – 0930.  Registration closes at 0930 so be on time or even early if you want to squad with your friends.  Cost is $20 for WCRH members and $25 for non-members.

 

Brian K Has Passed

Our condolences go out to the close friends and family of Brian K who died last evening after a long fight with respiratory and cardiac issues.  Brian was a big supporter of the Wayne County Raccoon Hunters and IPSC66 practical shooters group. For years he acted as the stats and registration guy at matches as well as 1/3 of the planning committee that is infamous for establishing IPSC66 as a high round count club. Knowing how important it was for attendees to receive their scores, Brian would work non-stop after a match to ensure a timely upload to USPSA.

The final arrangements have been made for Brian. Visitation is Friday June 13 from 4-8 PM at the Harry J Will funeral home located at 37000 Six Mile RD, Livonia. A service is planned for Saturday June 14 at 11 AM. Brian will be in state at 10 AM. Please forward this information to those you think will want to know.
