We are excited to be holding our IPSCNL Provincial competition on Saturday-Sunday, August 19-20th 2017. This will take place at the St. John’s Rod & Gun Club on Ranges A, B and C. We are planning for 10+ stages. This will be a level II Match and we appreciate any, and all, volunteers that may be available to help build the stages on Friday August 18th.
Also, you can see some photos of our IPSCNL shooters that attended the 2017 IPSC Canadian Nationals in Calgary, AB from July 18-23 at this link: 2017 IPSCNL Cdn Nationals
The link below is the information regarding our Level II Provincial Match. Please review and follow the instructions if you are planning on attending. Thanks in advance.
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!
I hope that everyone is doing well and isn’t too excited about the new gun toys that Santa might bring for Xmas!
We are having our last official match on Saturday and we’d love to see everyone out for it! I’ll have a bunch of small stages done up to keep everyone moving. Mother Nature has been kind to us all year, let’s hope she’s gonna work with us again this weekend.
Bring a snack because we plan on having lunch in a warm trailer with some coffee and tea hopefully.
Set up will start at 8:30am – first shots scheduled for 10:00am. Many hands makes light work! $10 to shoot as always.
Looking forward to seeing you on the Range!
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.
IPSC has authorized the Regions to implement the trial of this new, exciting division called Production Optics. IPSC Canada has put together the following set of rules that we shall follow here in Canada. This is certainly an opportunity for our shooters to try something new, exciting and relatively inexpensive for us older folks. 🙂
See the attached Rule Set. IPSCNL shall follow these rules should anyone wish to shoot in the new Division of Production Optics (PO).
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.
The trailer is loaded up and ready to go across the province.
We are running a course in Deer Lake and the weather may be chilly but looks like it should be dry.
