It’s just under 15 days until the match!
We have a great match planned for April 10th through 12th. It will be three full days of challenging stages and I just posted them to the USPSA Area 6 Website.
You can download the stages and take a look but keep in mind, paper drawings don’t always do justice to the layout in the actual bay. Round count is expected to be 298 minimum. Classifier is expected to be 13-07. Yes, there will be a chrono stage.

Be sure to bring supplies for a long day in Florida. Sunscreen is a must, hats are crucial to keeping the sun out of the eyes and fluids for the heat. We will have water on the stages but if you have another favorite beverage, bring it. We suggest you have a rain coat or umbrella in your bag just in case of an afternoon shower. In rare cases of rain we could have a delay but light rain we bag the targets and push though.
Sponsors, raffles, gifts and random drawings
This year we are gifted with several sponsors and our title sponsor, CK Arms (www.ckarms.com). We especially want you to thank them for their contributions to our sport and this match. These are sponsors that participate in just about every match of USPSA in some way. They are our industry and they are driving the development of products and services that progress the action shooting sports.
CK Arms has graciously donated a complete, competition ready Open Gun. You will have the opportunity to win this gun in the onsite raffle. You will not have to be present to win, just buy tickets at registration or during the match. (www.ckarms.com)
Springfield Armory – Thanks again to Deb for all the great donations of guns and gear. These folks support many matches all year round. (www.springfield-armory.com)
Shooters Connection has always come through and provided the matches with the upmost in discounted supplies and prizes. This year they have once again helped make the match one of the largest cash awards in history. (www.shootersconnection.com)
Comp-Tac has agreed to help with supplies and will keep us in good supply of pasters. In a match this size, that is a big donation. (www.comp-tac.com)
Competitive Edge Dynamics – Premier supplier of timers and chronographs. We are just one of the many fortunate matches to receive gifts from this long time supporter of the action shooting world. (www.cedhk.com)
Brownells – Always there for a match. They are donating several gifts to the random drawings. (www.brownells.com)
STI – Always in the game with promotionals and more. (www.stiguns.com)
This year’s match will be scored using PractiScore. We will have a paper backup using stage logs that you can review or snapshot for your records. We will not be passing out slips of paper to the competitors.
PractiScore will be running across our private WiFi but only range equipment will have access. In all fairness, competitors will not have direct access to PractiScore. Range Officers have been given specific instructions not to share information about competitors on other squads, so please do not ask. Scores will be posted throughout the match.
Registration – If you can get to the range a day before you shoot it will help tremendously. Those in the afternoon squads, please get to the range well ahead of your start time of 1:30p
Thursday 4:00PM – 6:00PM
Friday 7:00 AM – 8:00AM and 4:00PM-6:00PM
Saturday 7:00AM – 8:00AM and 11:00AM – 1:00PM
Sunday 7:00AM – 8:00AM
First Shots at 8:00AM Sharp!
Please be at your stage by 7:45 for the walk through
WALK THROUGH IS NOT AT 8AM
Our match is very full and we have a set schedule to meet. It is imperative that everyone be on time and do your part. Unless there is a person willing to swap with you on another squad there will be no squad changes available the day of the match.
- No squad changes available the day of the match
- Shoot-thrus are not an option at this match.
This year we plan to have the awards ceremony under the pavilion at the range shortly after the last shot fired. With PractiScore at hand we should have the scores posted quickly for your review.
Although we work very hard to ensure the accuracy of all scores, it is YOUR responsibility to review your scores and notify us BEFORE the scores are marked as final. Unless there is a score that dramatically skews the placements, there will be no changing the scores after the ceremonies.
Cash Awards are determined by participation according to the current USPSA rule book for a level III match. Exact award amounts will be posted at registration. Unclassified classes are not eligible for cash prizes
As everyone may or may not know, the match is a moving target in itself. Changes are made on the fly right up until match start. The above statements are made with this in mind. Please help us with unexpected changes and make sure your entry is complete and correct long before day one of the match. If you need to email or call, please do. Your changes may effect cash payouts and or other factors of the match.
