    For those of you that shoot IDPA, there will be a sanctioned IDPA championship match on March 24, 2007.

    Location: Arlington TN


    This will be a great match. It is being hosted by former area coordinator Myrin Young. There will be prizes including 2 GLOCKS to be given away, plus more!! There will also be food and beverages. If you have never competed in this type of shooting, now would be the perfect time. So come on out and blast about 200rds with us.

    For more info go to:
    www.idpa.com(under upcoming major matches- TRI-STATE CHAMPIONSHIP)

    I was thinking about going to this one, but the info on their web site isn't too convincing - 10 stages and 150 rounds sounds like not much more than our regular monthly local matches. Have they held this match before? Does it usually draw a lot of shooters?

    I was told that there was more stages than that. Then again, the info might not have been updated. It would be worth while just to see if you can win a glock. Or better yet...see if you can beat me? LOL!! Come and have some fun. The best of the best from Alabama will be there.

    Then again, most matches do not consist of more than 12 stages, unless it is a two day match.

    And? You can't travel? I live in Alabama but I am still going. Matches in different states allow shooters to shoot a wide range of stage designs. The best matches I have shot have been the Alabama State and Georgia State Championships.


    I like meeting new people as well. I have learned alot from watching other competitors from different states. I learn something new every time I watch Dave Sevigny perform. I have seen him 3 times and it amazes me every time. Another thing is that you get to test you skills against different people. It would be boring to compete against the same people over and over at local matches.

    I never shot IDPA before, but I never miss an opportunity to Travel to TN. Heck, it's got to be closer than the GSSF shoot in GA that month.

    So, do I have to be classified in IDPA before I can shoot this match? If so, how do I go about it?

    You can contact Myrin Young for details. go to their website and see if they have his email there. You can probably get it off the application form for the match.

    Dom let me know....poo on you, too, Berretta. It's not like you haven't heard me talking about this over and over again for months and even tonight at our weekly gathering. Oooo, don't ask the girl....ooooo. She might know something...

    Hello my AL friend,
    I'm making every effort to get classified Marksmen this month so that I can shoot this match. I've planned my whole year around the different matches that I want to shoot. (I've never actually shot IDPA before but have watch several matches, gotten some tips from some friends that do shoot IDPA and feel as though I can do it too.) I plan on shooting the Tri-State, the AL, the Carolina Cup and finally the Nationals. Now I know I won't win any of them, but it is my goal to be able to say I participated in each of those matches this year. Heck, I already have my hotel reservations for AL & NC.

    Any of the locals that want to go down and shoot the Tri-State, I'm all for a group roadtrip. I have no problem going by myself since it's just right outside my hometown and not a bad drive from Louisville, but it's always more fun if you have friends along for the ride and support. I haven't decided if I'm staying at the "official" hotel or not. There are tons to choose from in the area (I used to have a house near the "official" hotel.), so I might shop around.

    If BGSL's berms are in a match ready state and they hold their monthly match on the 17th, Lin might classify us all. If not, then I'm hitting the road for Boaz if I can talk those boys into classifying me after thier monthly match this month. If you're interested, we can make it another group roadtrip.

    I'm staying at the Motel 6 down by the Bass Pro. It's just a couple exits further and it's half the price of the match hotel.

    I will probably find out "fist" and will only share if I'm asked sweetly and with the respect I deserve. :miff:

    I'm already signed up, classified (Marksmen on my first try :banana: ) and ready for the roadtrip. I've even signed up and have my hotel reservation for the Alabama State in April.

    Look for me in TN (my old home town). I'm really looking forward to making new friends in the IDPA world.

    I've never actually shot any full official IDPA match yet, but have watched some and cannot wait to try my hand. Would love some pointers.

    I will be a safety officer on stage 3. You can go to their website and see the course of fire. Studying them may help you for the match.:thumbsup:

    Already printing...I figure the fewer surprises the better. I'm going to have enough on my mind trying to remember everything so I get no proceedurals (hate proceedurals). I'll make it a point to stop by and say hi.

    Say, since you've been there before, I thought I saw something about a meet and great the night before, but I cannot find it on their website. Am I making this up? and if not, is it worth it to go to the Friday night thing at the range? I'm driving in from KY that afternoon and didn't know if I should just find dinner in town or should show for the meet and great on Friday night. Also, what time on Saturday do things wind down? I'm debating about sticking around that night or just driving back that night. Any suggestions?

    It is totally up to you if you wish to do the "meet and great". It is just the shooters meeting the Safety Officers and Coordinators and such. Just to try to get to know everyone. I already know most of the crowd so it is doubtful that I will go. Then again, I will already be in town so I might just stop by.

    It wouldn't hurt to drop by. If you have any questions, then would be the perfect time to ask. While trying to be a safety officer and/or shooting can make the match drag out even longer. The match does not end until all shooters are done and scores are posted. Then they have the award presentation. I have seen matches been done by 3pm and some as late as 7pm.

    Thanks for the info. I guess I'll just play it by ear on both matters. I really miss my hometown bbq and this was my old part of town too. Looking forward to seeing how things look now adays. Haven't been back in at least 3 years.
