BPSA March Monday Night Match Results

BPSA Small

We had 11 shooters come out for the March Monday Night Match, including two brand new shooters.  It went real smooth with all of us in one squad.  Not quite sure how it will work with a big turnout, so we are looking to limit it to 15 or 20 shooters next time.  No set schedule on the Monday night matches, they are more ad hoc as the folks who setup and run them are available and want to do it.  Check back here and we’ll announce them at least by the Thursday or Friday before.

Congratulations to the winners….

BPSA Monday Night Match .. Monday March 30th!

BPSA Small


The Monday mini-match has returned. This Monday, March 30th at 5pm we will be having a mini-match consisting of one field course and one classifier.

The match is geared towards newer and beginner shooters, with a less intimidating atmosphere than our normal Saturday match, so if you know someone who has been wanting to get started in USPSA bring them out to the mini-match.

The match is limited to the first 15 people who register, plus 5 staff, for 20 total. We will be shooting it in one squad. Cost is $5.

We look forward to trying to do these frequently, so don’t worry if you miss out on this one.

Incredible safety violation

I almost never stray from the reporting of the local shooting news, but this warrants a deviation from that policy. By now, many of you have seen this video. If you haven’t, then please watch and learn from the mistakes that were made in this situation. It did not occur at any of the local clubs, and I have not seen any reference to where it did occur.

Everyone is responsible for safety on the range, but no one more so than the Range Officer. Many of us are formally trained, and many others handle the timer without the formalities of a USPSA RO class. Regardless of your training level, if you pick up the timer, you must pay attention.

We can debate who was at fault here, but the point is, someone could have been injured or killed, due to carelessness on the part of the RO.

The weather was nice and the shooting even nicer. Thanks to the classifier match at EAPS, we had a near record turnout, with a large, non-regular crowd from Louisiana making the trip. We’re always glad to have you and hope you keep us in mind in the future.

Since the webmaster was under the weather today, we are a bit light on the sparkling commentary. So, let’s get on to it.

Dawson PrecisionLast month, we set an attendance record for the past five years. Today, we nearly equaled that record. We had 29 shooters competing and, just as notable, we instituted online registration. Fifteen of the shooters pre-registered, which makes the final registration go much quicker. Look for this next month as well.

It would be hard to complain about the weather today, because it was just about perfect. We started on time and were pickup up and ready to go by 1 PM. Other than a few scoring setup issues (sorry about that), things went very smoothly. The squads never waited (unlike last month), and the pace seemed to be just about right.

The leader board looks fairly normal, with the overall winner also taking the Open division. Congratulations to  Read more…

After losing two consecutive months to the weather, we finally got a match done. It was actually pretty nice, all things considered. It wasn’t hot, it wasn’t cold, it didn’t rain (until after we were done), and it was overcast all day so conditions were consistent for everyone.

The turnout was also a pleasant surprise. We had 15 shooter, with three of them being first time shooters to our club. Everyone seems to have a great time, although the stages were surprisingly challenging. Only one shooter completed the entire match penalty free.

So, without further adieu, lets get to the good stuff. The match winner was  Read more…
