    Hi guys and gals, :wavey:

    Just wanted to remind everyone that Silver Creek is still holding our IDPA matches. Sorry we missed most of you this month, but we did have 3 shooters who had a great time thanks to our new Match Director, Bob Dalton, who did an outstanding job his first turn out. (3 stages with movers, etc., intermingled with the classifier stages - total minimum round count was over 140! - translation, lots of fun)

    Don't forget to mark your calendars for next month. We hold our matches every first Saturday of the month. Sign up is between 9 and 10 am at the club house. (Help setting up the match is most appreciated.) Shooters meeting is at 10 am and we start shooting by 10:30. Entry fee is $15 for Silver Creek members and $18 for non-Silver Creek members. Per IDPA rules, you may shoot one match without being an IDPA member, afterwards you will need to join IDPA which you can do the day of the match at Silver Creek.

    Hope to see you folks out there next month. Remember...it's the first Saturday of the the month. Bring your gear (don't forget your concealment garment), lots of ammo and a great attitude. See you then. :wavey: :welcome:

    Yea, apparently due to the controversy and the hi-jacked website, folks thought we had canceled IDPA all together, but that is absolutely not true. We just didn't, apparently, get the word out good enough this month. We'll try to do better for next month and hopefully we will have a better turn out for September. Too bad for those that missed it. It was a really good match. Bob did a really nice job. He's a really great guy and did it on an injured knee, too. Thanks, Bob.

    The BOD has all IDPA match materials, including the score sheets from the first two matches that have email addresses for those shooters. If you will ask the new match director to send me a request for a copy of the SCCC-IDPA mailing list I will be happy to supply it to him.

    Phil Duncan, Secretary of SCCC, will soon be the registrant of the silvercreekcc.org domain name, or so Godaddy tells me. :cheerleader:

    Look at the bright side. You probably didn't have to wait around all day to shoot.

    I understand it did take a while to finish the course. Story goes that a few guys who didn't sign up for the match were going around shooting the stages and requiring the targets to be pasted before they could even begin. I wasn't aware that we had valet target service.

    Not really the whole story about the shot up targets. It was just a miscommunication and it was only one bay that was effected. The shooters were very apologetic and it was easily fixable. They are actually nice fellows and are planning on shooting the IDPA match next month, too. Stuff like that happens even with the IPSC matches, so no real harm and no real foul.

    I didn't realize there was an IDPA club around Louisville. :wow: Now I just might have to look more into this.

    Would love to have you join us. Our next monthly match will be Saturday, September 6th. Registration starts at 9 am at the clubhouse. Entry fees are as stated above. Now that our website is back up and running, if you need directions, just go to www.silvercreekcc.org Please ignore where it says IDPA is canceled at the range. That was posted erroneously and should be corrected soon. If you're not an IDPA member yet, you can shoot with us once, then you will need to join IDPA which can be handled at your next match at Silver Creek.

    Hope to see you there.:wavey:

    Sounds good, unless I have drill that weekend. Just transferred to a new unit, so I'm not for sure of the drill dates just yet.

    What all would I need for this? I've never done any competition other than air rifle in high school.

    Sure...when you're listed as the club contact for SCCC-IDPA on the IDPA website at http://www.idpa.com/clublist.asp?state=IN Until then I am not certain that Silver Creek is running an affiliated match.

    As the former club contact and Match Director for SCCC-IDPA I'd prefer to send the list to the current club contact or Match Director, at their request.

    Equipment speaking, you will need your pistol a couple of mag pouches and mags, belt, holster, eye and ear protection and a concealment garment that will cover your weapon and mags when your hands are held at your sides. For more specific requirements and limitations for the above, I would refer you to the IDPA rule book which can be found at www.idpa.com. A normal monthly match will usually run around 100 rounds or so. I would suggest having about 150 rounds with you just in case. If we are shooting the classifier stages, they, themselves, are 90 rounds, then any additional rounds needed to cover any additional stages set up would also be needed. IDPA has some specific rules about what you can and cannot do while shooting that are detailed in the rule book too, but if you just want to show up and shoot with us, we can give you a brief run down, too, before we get started.

    Hope you get a chance to shoot with us. We'd be glad to have you and your friends join us.

    Sure, Silver Creek IS running an affiliated match....and I'm the Phone Flinging King of Siam. When you're running an affiliated match your Match Director's name will appear on the IDPA website.
