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

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.
