February is always a tricky month for scheduling, more so when Mother Nature is feeling fickle. The second match of the year originally scheduled for Sunday March 1, 2015, has been postponed to Sunday March 8, 2015. Rain and high winds for original match date made it difficult to safely navigate stages.
Then, at the end of March, the third match of the year will be held on Sunday March, 29, 2015. Blame the Romans, the Greeks, or any other ancient civilization you choose for this scheduling oddity. It’s Freaky February, followed closely by Mysterious March.
Both matches will have an abundance of moving steel and fiendishly hard-to-hit paper targets. As usual, there will be a qualifier stage to fuel your quest for a new, sky-high, USPSA Classification. You’ll need about 200 rounds to complete the match, and, as always, your most comfortable run-and-gun shoes. Join your fellow pistoleros and revel in the warm California winter weather that makes everyone else in the country wish they lived here.
If you’ve never entered a practical pistol match, yet are consumed by a burning desire to become a USPSA shooter, visit Dave Marcinkus and other GFSC members in the sign-in area at the lower ranges between 8:00am and 1:00pm. There’s never a charge to tour the stages and ogle the action. Remember to bring eye- and hearing-protection. If the action starts your blood pumping and you decide to shoot the match, Gopher Flats members receive a $5.00 discount on the $30.00 match fee.
Extra hands, feet, backs, and smiles are always needed to set-up and break-down the match stages. You’ll get club work credit for helping with the matches…and lots of free advice on gear and match strategy. If you can help, please chat with Dave before Sunday morning.
