Results for October Action Match

The results have been calculated since about 3:00 pm today, however for some unknown reason I have been unable to upload them to Practiscore.  Tomorrow I meet with my technology adviser who will undoubtedly solve the problem.

Meanwhile, I'll tell you the top 10 finishers in Tac Ops since I know some of them are dying to know.

Buddy Knight
Brian Cashman
Dean DeTurk
Howard Thompson
Bob Schemlz
Kevin Downing
Jody Snyder
Bill Hostler
Joe Padian
Mike Sherman

No doubt there's a couple surprises there.  The competition is getting serious here.  There is no longer room for any errors.

This match did fill as quickly as I expected.  A smart thing to do would be to "follow" this blog.  Then whenever a match is announced you'll get an email to your inbox.  Only 18 people are following right now.

Next month we'll be shooting shotgun and pistol.  We will take a few less shooters next month.  Expect slots to this match to be at even more of a premium

October 12th Action Match

UPDATE:  10/7/14 12:27am.   All of the rifle/pistol multi-gun slots are now full. There are still carbine only, or pistol only slots available. 
Our October action match, scheduled for Sunday, October 12th, is a very fun and challenging looking match with some interesting options.

A - No longer available.

B - You may shoot it as a Pistol-only match.  It will be 5 stages.  The divisions for this option include Open, Limited, L10, Production (10 rounds only), Single Stack, and Revolver.  It will require about 130 rounds minimum, and we will allow 22lr.

C - You may shoot it as a Carbine-only match.  It will be 5 stages.  The divisions for this option include Optics, or Irons.  There will not be any mag limits in either division and you may use 22lr, 9mm, 40, or 45. Other calibers require prior approval.  The maximum distance will be 35 yards.  It will require about 130 rounds minimum.

The fee will be $25.  There will only be one time slot.  We will begin set-up at 7:30.  Registration will be from 8:00 - 8:30.  Mandatory match briefing will be at 8:45.  We will start shooting at 9:00.    I expect this match to be over by around 1:00.

If you would like to sign up please email us at yorksignup@gmail.com with your name, which option you're choosing, which division, and anyone you'd prefer to shoot with.  

Keep in mind that our matches are likely to get really hard to get into, as we're cutting back to one time slot and we will limit squad size.  One way to assure you won't get in will be to sign up and then not show up.  Please don't sign up so hurriedly that you don't check your calendar.
