*******************************************************************************************************

IDPA Matches are held at the Club the second Saturday of every month, April thru October*. Match is an AM or PM squad format. Typically 5 stages, around 100 rounds. Match announcements are generally posted about 3 weeks before the match. We use PractiScore for registration and scoring. Matches are not marked public on the PractiScore web site. See below for the current match announcement and registration link. Once you register you will receive approval to squad based on the following priority order: Staff and Safety Officers, FXRGC Members, IDPA Members, and then everyone else. All IDPA matches are open to the public.

To be placed on the IDPA email list, click on the "Apply for an account" link at the bottom of this page. You do not need to be a Club member. Check the "IDPA Shooters" box under email lists. You will receive all future match announcements. 

* NOTICE - October Match Date Change

Due to a date conflict with the Potomac Grail Sanctioned Match in October, we are moving the October 13th Club Match to October 6th. 

*******************************************************************************************************

We're working up a plan to get a local Boy Scout Troop to come and provide cookout style lunches at our IDPA matches for the rest of the season (Aug-Oct). We are still working out all the details, so we would really like you to take this quick survey so that we can get an idea of demand.

If you shoot IDPA with us at the Club, please take a few minutes to fill out the survey. Its only 5 quick questions. Thanks!

June Match Results

Apparently doing the Rain Dance in reverse was just the trick to make the weather hold out.   

We had a great response to beginning the match with the “5 at 5” stage and plan to continue using that format in coming matches.  The great thing about it is that it is a repeatable drill and allows each of us to track our performance from match to match.  For now, our club record holders are (all Down Zero):

1st- Pedro Chin, 2.6 seconds

2nd- Daniel Monahan, 2.69 seconds

3rd- David Altenburg, 2.81 seconds

Overall, most accurate for the match was W.G. Haskins, who went Down Zero for the entire match while posting a very fast time!

The complete scores can be found at: https://practiscore.com/results/new/a6ecd142-5346-42a5-813d-a1fc9399d4fb

As usual, please let us know if there are any discrepancies.

Our July match announcement will be out in in about two weeks - don’t forget that it will be our Big Bore match.  All IDPA legal guns will be in their usual divisions and classifications, but anyone shooting a .40, .44 or .45 will be additionally scored on “Team Big Bore” to celebrate our Nation’s Independence.  Check the Team Flag when you register. 

We will also be shooting our first competitor-designed stage in July, with a winner to be named shortly.  Please keep those stages coming in!

Load and Make Ready,

Adam and Tony
