    I put together a map with this years matches in this post. There is also a list on the official website and in the Glock Report which you should be receiving a copy of in the mail soon.

    The two closest matches to you are Topton, PA (near Allentown) in August, Jackson NJ in July. Check www.gssfonline.com for a schedule of indoor matches. That schedule is updated weekly.

    Far? Closest to me is 125 miles one way and I travel up to 450 miles one way. I often shoot the Topton, PA match, a long haul from SW Virginia. Philly to Topton is a breeze.

    I've traveled 1100 miles one way for a match. Now in the middle of a 3000 mile sweep of NRA plus 2 GSSF matches before returning home. And ask Butch about his expedition.

    I"m lucky enough to have one within 40 miles or so.
    But yeah... I live in Charlotte and have driven multiple times to:
    Columbia, SC (100 miles one way)
    Atlanta (240 miles one way)
    Knoxville (230 miles one way)
    Anniston, AL (335 miles one way, but they don't have this match anymore)

    You'll find that many of us do this. Or more. For my monthly USPSA matches and such, I won't drive much more than 70 miles one way. But I will shoot 5 or so GSSF matches in a year and will drive further and do an overnight.

    In fact, Team Glocktastrophy will all ride our motorcycles over on Friday night to Knoxville.... get up and shoot and do the ride home. We did it last year. It's on the schedule for this year and we plan on riding to Beckley, WV also this year.

    Yeah, it's an event.
