August Fun Shoot

This Saturday, August 27th

This month, we can expect some wonderful stages built by those USPSA folks, as well as the usual clays, bowling pins, bull's-eye and the ever so popular return of REDDAWN!

Round count, as always is just under 100, and food and drink will be available for purchase.

Of Special Note this month: Saturday is a "road cleanup day", sponsored by our club, York IWLA 67. In lieu of helping to setup the funshoot, I would ask those of you who can, to show up a bit early and give a hand to the cleanup crew. They meet at the clubhouse at 8:00am and will have coffee and donuts available for breakfast. I will not need setup help this month, so you can work the cleanup instead.

I WILL DELAY THE START OF THE FUNSHOOT UNTIL 10:30AM (registration starts at 9:30) IN SUPPORT OF THIS EFFORT, AND GIVE A $5 DISCOUNT TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATE IN THE ROAD CLEANUP FOR AN HOUR OR TWO.

Otherwise, the fee is $15 for adults, $5 for kids under 18, no preregistration is required. Scoring is optional

As always remember the range safety rules

Results are up!

Results are up already. Link to results. Thanks, Rob.

And thanks to all the people who showed up, and especially those who helped rebuild the match this morning. I'm really happy about how well everything turned out considering the forecast.

Yes we did shoot

41 real shooters just finished shooting. It went very well. If you wimped out and missed it better luck next time.

York match today

I'll admit to be being obstinate, but we're still moving forward with the August match. The weather tonight wasn't nearly as bad as threatened, and what if tomorrow isn't as bad as forecast either?

There will be changes to our plans for sure, but barring a dramatic turn for the worst we will be shooting. Let's find out who the real shooters are.

Preparing for the worst, hoping for the best, Howard

Impending weather

The weather is weighing heavily upon my mind. I am not prepared to cancel tomorrow's match at this point but I do want to inform you of the possibility. We do not give in easily at York and at this point we are moving full speed ahead towards having the match as planned. We are however making preparations and contingency plans.

A. If you are signed up for this match, but are making a long trip and want to cancel out we will not hold it against you. Please email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and let us know so we can inform the people on the waiting list.

B. If the weather that is forecast does in fact occur we reserve the right to cancel the match or shorten the match to the 7 stages already set up in the back pits. We do not intend to do it, but we would rather run and shoot 7 stages in 2-3 hours than 12 stages in the 4-5 it could take if it's raining.

C. Please check your email in the morning before setting off. I get off work between midnight and 2:00am this morning. I will assess the current data again at that time which should lead me to a more informed decision. I will send an email and post to the blog one way or the other, so before you set off in the morning you will have some idea what to expect.

D. If it looks like we are shooting, and it may rain, be prepared. Bring towels, rain jackets, umbrellas, trash bags etc.

August USPSA match

On Sunday, August 14th we will be hosting a 12 stage, 180 round +/- USPSA pistol match at York Izaak Walton in Dallastown PA. The match fee will be $20 and this match is a little different from our normal matches. We will trying to shoot as close to IPSC as possible. We will be following the 3 small, 2 medium, to 1 large course ratio. We are using all classic/international paper targets. We are painting our steel different colors. The courses although smaller than usual are much more technical for the most part. There are a lot of movers and no-shoots. We will also be loaded gun starts, unloaded gun starts, and mag inserted but chamber empty starts. There is strong hand only shooting, weak hand shooting, and seated shooting. There will also be 2 retreat stages.

This is however, a USPSA match and we will be using USPSA rules and divisions, except we will be allowing Production division to load 15 rounds in the magazines which is the way IPSC does it and should be fun for everyone.

We are encouraging shooters from the World Shoot teams to come and I know several of them are.

We will be limiting the number of shooters to 80 (8 squads of 10) and we expect to start shooting around 10:30 and be done by around 2:30. We will have food and drink available for purchase. Registration will be from 9:15 until 10:00. Don't be late we need to start this thing on time.

Pre-registration is mandatory. Please email Tom at yorksignup@gmail.com with your name, USPSA #, division, major/minor, and anyone you wish to be squadded with. Do not hesitate to sign up if you want to shoot. We expect this match to fill quickly.
