We’ll shoot about 120 rounds over four stages.  Competitors will shoot in one of two divisions (handheld or weapon mounted).  The top three in each division will be awarded a trophy plaque.

This match is limited to 50 shooters so read below then get on it if you want to enter.

Match intent – Test equipment realistically used for home defense, self defense or law enforcement in challenging low light conditions. That’s the intent not the requirement. This is a rare chance to see if your gear will actually work under a little stress, if you want to try out a low light race gun then have at it.

EQUIPMENT: Guns must be a service caliber (9/40/45/38/357).  No mouse guns, sub calibers, hyper velocity oddballs or big boomers.

COF – Stages will be designed like USPSA pistol stages and USPSA major scoring & safety rules will be in effect. Expect to open doors, fire through ports, under and around walls and on the move.

Who can enter – Shooting at night while moving around barricades can be dangerous. You will have to shoot from awkward positions and while on the move. This match is only open to shooters with experience in dynamic shooting.

Entrants must have shot at least 4 USPSA/IDPA, etc. matches OR be Law Enforcement or Military OR have attended professional training OR have a shooter the match director or range master knows vouch for you. If you don’t meet the requirements but want to enter contact match director Roger Lomshek roger@tailwindcyclists.com in advance to discuss your qualifications.

ENTRY: $25 to shoot. Pre-register by emailing the info below to roger@tailwindcyclists.com and pay at the match.  On site registration will only be allowed if space remains and pre-registering helps eliminate delays. Shooters will be divided into squads & rotate through stages. If you want to shoot with friends list their names in your email as preferred squad-mates. We will try to squad you together.

Work evening 6/25

Work evening this Thursday at 1730. Like the rifle cover, this should not take us too long to get done, even though there is a bit more steel involved. I will bring a couple of ladders, in addition to the one already at the range.

Reminder that the bugs are out, so remember to spray yourself down with repellent before venturing out to the range.

Final Daylight Match of the Year – Nov 2nd 2014

Our final daylight match of the year will be a special classifier match with six classifiers total. If you want to get classified in a new division or try to bump up quickly this is your chance!

Sunday November 2nd is the date. Range set up begins at 8:00 AM, registration ends at 9:30 AM and we go hot at 10:00 AM. Entry fee is $20 and a second division is $10 more.

Monthly USPSA Pistol Match

This Sunday (Sep 7th) will be our monthly USPSA pistol match with a rifle side stage.  Shawn’s still scheming on some stages (and always welcomes stage ideas) at ssgironcross@gmail.com but plan for something in the 150+ rounds range of handgun and less than 50 rounds of rifle.

Set up begins at 8 AM and we go hot at 10 AM.  Please be onsite by 9 AM and registered by 9:30 AM so we can stay on time.  Help is always appreciated setting up.

The forecast is sunny, dry and a high of 84 so it’s going to be a gorgeous day!

Bone Creek USPSA Sunday June 1st

The first Sunday of the month is on June 1st so we’re shooting this weekend!  Shawn’s keeping the six stages short and sweet so we can beat the heat.  Last month we were finished about two hours after the first round was fired.

Shawn’s still cranking out the stages but plan for somewhere in the ballpark of 100+ rounds fired over six stages.

If you can help we’ll begin setting up at 8 AM and should go hot at 10 AM.  Please be registered by 9:30 AM so Dave can set the squads and we can go hot on time.

Match fee is $15 for adults, $5 per kid (under 18) and free if this is your first match.

Here’s a map to the range if you haven’t made the trip before.
