Another holiday weekend and another way to entertain the visiting relatives or just yourself.
Yes, we are holding our IDPA match this Saturday, the 5th of September.
This month we are shooting the Postal Match along with an additional stage designed by our own area coodinator, Jeff Brown, who will be in house. Everyone will be scored locally regardless of classification or lack there of, so everyone is welcome. Classified shooters' scores will be submitted to headquarters to post with the rest of the IDPA world's scores for international ranking on the Postal Stages.
Registration starts at 9am, new shooter orientation is 9:30, shooters meeting at 10am, match will begin asap after shooters meeting. Total course of fire will be 5 stages with a minimum round count just under 60 rounds but you might want to bring more for any reshoots needed. If everything goes smoothly, we should be done by 12:30 or 1 o'clock. On such a gorgeous weekend, that leaves tons of time to find more trouble to get into if you hear the calling.

Not an IDPA member? That's okay. You can shoot your first match with us without joining, but we also have application forms at the range. If it's your second time, you can join there and still shoot the match. IDPA membership fees are $40. Match fees are $18 for non-Silvercreek members and $15 for Silvercreek members. If you SO the match, you get to shoot for free. Let me know if you would like to volunteer to be an SO.
Hope to see all my regulars and all their friends and relatives, too. I don't think we're going to be able to ask for better shooting weather. We need to take advantage of it while it lasts.
See you there.
