Just wondering who may be interested in going to shoot at the 2018 Nationals in Selkirk, MB in August? It’s a Level 3 Match and all are welcome. Selkirk has a new multi-million dollar facility for this event.
One of the benefits of being in a smaller IPSC Section is that if you want to attend a large Canadian Competition we can always register people in under our Division Teams. If you’ve never been to a large match – it is quite the experience! When you are shooting – you shoot only! When it’s time to work – you work BUT you get to meet loads of great people.
I’m currently looking for accommodations for our Teams; such that we can all stay together if people want to. We’ve done this in the past and it’s great fun. I have a line on some houses that we can rent, not far from the range. Cook our own meals and relax in the evening by the fire.
So, if anyone is planning on attending and would like for me to track down accommodations for us – text or email me. I’d just like to know how many we can plan for and what divisions people are shooting.
No rain in the forecast, single digit temperatures BUT we are gonna be warm when we shoot! We have a 33′ Trailer coming to the Range. I’m bringing a 7500W generator to run some heaters and coffee pot. Monty (from Monty’s Restaurant) on the TCH in Whitbourne is going to be bringing soup and sandwiches and we will schedule some warm up breaks! The weather is calling for 8*C but it’s gonna be a fun shoot!
Bring out your lunch and some warm clothes. You’ll do just fine!
I have 4 stages done up and here’s what you’ll see at the range for our set up. I have some keen stages made out of this. Set up starts at 8:30am first shots at 10:00 am. Let’s get out and shoot, eat and have fun! $10 for the shoot as usual.
Hope to see you all at the Range. If I’m late for some reason – everything is still going ahead!
Obviously we aren’t having a match this weekend – it’s Remembrance Day! Make sure that you take a moment to remember all of those people that gave, and some that continue to give, themselves to ensure that we have the freedoms that we get to enjoy on a daily basis.
Next weekend, Nov 18th, will be our last official match for 2017. I’m hoping that the weather cooperates with us so that we can get out and have one last match with lots of shooters and fun. Monty is going to bring his trailer again and we will plan to have some heaters going in there so we can enjoy lunch in the warmth. I’d love to have as many people as possible there as well because I’m going to be putting together the shooting schedule for next season and planning matches across the island, as well as the Provincials. Lots to discuss.
We will plan to start at 10:00am as normal. Set up will start at around 8:30 so the more hands the better. Regular match fee of $10.
Let’s see if we can get some more Black Badges awarded. Congrats to all of the new Black Badge Certified shooters this season! We look forward to seeing everyone at the range.
These shooting season is winding down BUT the weather is doing it’s best to let us get out for a few more matches. Right now we are going ahead with our match. Setup will start at 8:00am sharp on Saturday as we want to get shooting as early as possible. Help is always welcome so come on out to help set up. Many hands makes light work. Match fees are $10 as normal.
We still have a few Black Badges that need to be presented at the shooter’s first match – let’s get everyone certified!
We will have a trailer on the range to load and have our lunch in. If it’s cold we will just turn on our heaters and away to go. Great chance to discuss next season’s shooting schedule, Provincials, matches across the island and off-the-island matches. See you then.
Our weather is really doing it’s best to ensure that we are able to get out and enjoy ourselves at the range. We have a Match planned for this Saturday. See the link below for the Stages that we are going to shoot.
Well folks, NTV News was pleased with covering our Provincial IPSC Competition and we were glad to work with them. Huge thanks to Amanda Mews for following up on this story.
I waited for the HD Version of the story from NTV but couldn’t get it – that’s too bad. Here is the link to the clip from Aug 22nd.

Our previously scheduled match from Aug 5th is happening tomorrow!
This is the last tune up before our Provincials next weekend. I have 15 Stages ready to go for our Provincials – I’m not sure how many will get set up next Friday! I’m planning on putting as many as possible into the competition. Regardless, it will be fun and we will be shooting lots!
