Something To Talk About…

April 5, 2020 1 comment

We have been without (matches) in South Mississippi for almost a month now. While the nice weather and lack of rain has caused disappointment every weekend since we shut down (because we could have been shooting), I thought it might be interesting to look at some data from the past three years.

Now, don’t get your hopes up about seeing combined results of all matches from our three clubs for three years, cause that ain’t gonna happen. I have been dealing with Nationals slots Read more…

2020 Factory Gun and Race Gun Nationals slot codes available *UPDATE 1*

April 3, 2020 Leave a comment

This is the first update to the Nationals slot registration for Factory and Race Gun matches. I received 2 slots for the Limited/Open match and 3 slots for the Production/Carry Optics match.

Do not let this deter you from registering to get one of these slots. The club presidents will award the slots based on participation during 2019. And, even of you don’t get one of the slots, you can almost certainly register during general registration.

What you can do to help your Match Director

February 24, 2020 6 comments

I’m writing this in response to a post by John Hoffman on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/GCUSPSA/permalink/2212067592229505/), who made a simple request of his match shooters. I started responding there with a comment, but I quickly realized I would get the TL;DR (too long; didn’t read) tag very quickly. So, I took it to a more appropriate place. If you got here from that FB post, thank you for checking this out.

John’s request was that anyone who registers for any of Tangi’s matches through PractiScore should also withdraw THROUGH PractiScore if they are no longer able to attend the match. I wanted to offer my perspective as a long-time match director. And the TL;DR tag doesn’t apply here.

Having been a match director for way longer than the existence of PractiScore, Read more…

2020 Single Stack Nationals slot codes available for eligible shooters

January 10, 2020 Leave a comment

Are you interested in shooting the 2020 Single Stack Nationals in Talladega, AL? The match dates are April 30, May 1 OR May 2, 2020 (match is a one-day format). The Mississippi Section has been given 2 slots for this match and they will be awarded to shooters who are members of the Mississippi Section or out of state residents who support our state matches.

To request a slot, click the REGISTER button below. This will let you register on Practiscore to get a slot. Registering is free, but it does not guarantee you will get a slot. You also have to pay for the match, even with a slot code. And, even if you do not get a slot code, you will still be able to register for the actual match during open registration in 2020.

The request period will be open until 5 PM on January 27, 2020. Shortly after that, the codes will be awarded based on the Section bylaws. If you request and receive a slot, it must either be used by you or returned to the Section. It cannot be transferred to anyone else, even someone in our Section. Click the button here to get started. It is NOT first come, first served. Anyone registering will be equally considered for a slot.
