Not sure about you, but I'm excited for the 2022 summer season. We're busy getting ready to put on our matches and practices. We are prepping more walls, buying and building more props, and coming up with more exciting stages.
Our Monthly Matches will start in April, and are on the first Sunday of the month. Registration is open on Practiscore. Our twice monthly practices will start in May. We'll still have them on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays.
We are always looking for help on the ranges. Whether is stage setup or SO's, we can use your help. We setup our matches on Saturday afternoon/evening, the day before our match (1st Saturday). We always need SO's for matches, and I'm currently limiting the number of squads & shooters, due to the need for SO help.
Our practices will continue as the fun and casual practices we've traditionally put on. We'll be setting up about an hour or two before the practice begins. I'd like to be able to setup 3 stages, but will always have 2, and will make them as flexible as possible.
Yes, the rumors are true... IDPA has released a new rulebook for 2022. The new rules take effect June 1, 2022. None of the new rules come as a surprise, and I'm reading through them multiple times, to ensure we put on our matches according to the rule. The current plan is a "phased" implementation, with full implementation for our June Match.
Lastly, we're not holding it back. Our 2022 Themed Match in October will be "Bond Bash". All stages will be James Bond 007 based, on the movies through the decades. Additionally, I'm hoping to be able to have an additional stage this year, for a total of 7 scored stages (1 warm-up + 6 scenario / standard stages). And yes, I plan to continue the time bonus for anyone who comes in a themed costume.
See you on the ranges
