In order to shoot one of our USPSA matches...

Last year we had several new shooters who lied about their qualifications to shoot in our matches. There were some very unsafe acts, and their ignorance of of rules and procedures, inefficiency, and inabilty to follow directions fouled up two of our matches very badly. We won't let it happen again. To these ends we have drastically overhauled our process and we have strict rules governing who will be allowed to shoot our matches his year.

Unclassified shooters who have not successfully competed in a USPSA match at York Izaak Walton in the past, must pass a safety check. This safety check will only take a half hour or so, and there will be no exceptions to this rule. Make arrangements with the Match Director at hkbrt@verizon.net to schedule one. We will do them on some match days, but not all. We can also try to arrange on on a non-match day at our mutual convenience.
