Well, the first ever match is over. It was great. We had about 20 people, and many of them were new shooters to the club. Some were youngsters and we even had a few new women. Over all it was a huge success. Did it run smoothly? Well, not as well as it could have run, but who would have thought we would have that many people. In hind sight, we should have formed two squads, but it was a great day anyway. Everyone got a chance to shoot what they brung! We had some folks that had some mag malfunctions, others with rifle malfunctions. Some didn't have enough mags. Others borrowed guns. But what the heck, we all got to shoot and have a great time. Folks got to see a lot of different equipment and sighting systems. I'm sure some folks will be heading out this next month and spending some money. Overall, the first ever match was a huge success and a huge thanks has to go to Ty and Wendy for all their hard work and the others that pitched in and helped them put together such a successful event.
I, for one, sure do hope this is a match that continues. It's a blast and totally different than the ICORE or IDPA matches we have. It allows others to experience the joy of shooting and is very inexpensive. Varying the day from Sunday to Saturday and back and forth seems to be a good idea in my opinion too. Again, thanks to all for a wonderful day!
