Don't forget to set your clock back one hour Saturday night.

This Sunday may be moist. As long as there is  no thunder, lightning or hail we will have a match.  Please check right here Saturday evening after 6pm.

Our match will be starting at 9:00 AM we will not register anyone after the shooter meeting begins @ 8:50. Please arrive by 8:15 to get registered and ready. Those who wish to help please arrive at 7:am to lend your hand.

First time shooters to our range should check out the entry gate requirements. Attendees of NVSA need to purchase a gate access RFID card from the City of Gridley to gain access through the gate. Gate access is controlled by the city. If you arrive early you can have another shooter help you get through by borrowing their card. Members typically arrive prior to 8:30 so don't delay. Also DO NOT TAILGATE through the electronic gate. You will strike the gate. The gate is set to come down on the second vehicle. Please follow these instructions exactly to get your access card. Please do exactly as instructed. Read everything. We do not want to loose the special privilege we are getting for Sunday morning card pickup.  

Finally Please show up early to help setup. All setup is done the morning of the event. We start setup at 7:00 and registration begins at 8:00-8:15 We will start shooting at 9:00am. Registration closes at 8::45. Please be polite and courteous and show up early. 

Cost for this match will be $15 NVSA members and $25 non-members. Here is a link to the NVSA membership application. 

Contact me if you have any questions.

Some great stages today! Am I

Some great stages today! Am I the only one thinkin' that they just keep getting better? Had a few new shooters and a couple returnees that haven't been around in a few years.

Agreed Charlie. I look

Agreed Charlie. I look forward to next year. Lance Lowe has some great ideas for stage design next year. Ill let him share it with you all. 

Here is that link about great stage design I found online. I think once everyone understand what "Freestyle" means and allowing shooters be creative without placing people in a box limiting choice. 

The slow moving person like me takes the longer riskier shots while the sloppy speedy gonzales can have a different winning strategy.  

If you see a stage and everyone shoots it exactly the same, you have by default designed a crappy stage. If you see your stage being shot multiple ways with a variety of results then you should be proud that you have done your job as a USPSA stage designer. 

So often I hear a designer say "I want the shooter to shoot those from here:. This is in my opinion a poor philosophy. Great USPSA designers typically design a stage where a shooter can start here or there, can shoot those targets from here or from there, or from there, or even from over there if they wanted to. 

I typically build a stage where an array will leave a single target, here or there, available to tempt a shooter to take the sucker bet. Some shooters will succeed, others will fail, others will just play it safe and shoot it straight up. 

This is freestyle.
