Everything is on track for the match scheduled for March 15th. We look forward to seeing you there.
former Coharie IDPA shooters and friends of our Club
Thanks again to all of you who responded to my last letter with your offers of help. As a result of your response we plan to resume our Coharie matches on March 15, 2014. We are going to begin with one match a month on the 3rd Saturday of each month. We will host a Classifier Match shortly after our first match, and we will alert you as to the date. We plan to use the same schedule for the times of the match as before: Registration will begin at 0730 and the Match will begin at 0900.
As most of you know, the IDPA has implemented a number of new rules and dropped some of the older ones. Our Safety Officers will make every effort to conduct our matches in accordance with the new rules, and we appreciate your understanding in our implementation of this effort. As the number of qualified Safety Officers is limited it will require that some of our shooters in each squad step up to help with the scoring and to aid the SO in the execution of his duties. In addition, we are asking that you help the SO and match personnel after the match with the dismantling of the stage set up and the return of the props to the proper storage areas before leaving the range.
The new rules have resulted in changes that our existing scoring software may not be able to handle. We are investigating other methods of scoring so that we can meet our needs, and we hope to be able to either continue as we did before or have a method of scoring that is as good. Please bear with us as we attempt to accomplish this.
We also would like you to consider sending to us any stage scenario that you might like to see used in one of our matches. The attempt to come up with scenarios that both meet the IDPA rules and that also challenge and interest our shooters is one of our more time consuming efforts.
If any of you have an interest in becoming a certified SO please let us know, and we will look into avenues to accomplish this. The requirements are outlined in the rules which can be downloaded from the IDPA website. It is not a requirement for you to be certified to act in an SO capacity at club or local matches, but we would like to have as many of our Safety Officers certified as possible in order to help us run a more consistent match especially with regard to the IDPA rules.
Lastly, I want to thank all of you who have given my Wife and I so much support during this difficult time in our lives. We have sincerely appreciated it. Thank you very much.
