Club Meeting Notes
STEEL CHALLENGE: Continue with 12 steel matches a year but making 10/15/23 steel an outlaw format with the possibility of double tap steel, optional divisions, higher round count stages. Also, with the monthly SCSA matches, incorporating some of the west coast steel stages (still following typical SCSA format). Set up will continue to be match day 1 hour prior to shooters meeting, with no discount. SET UP HELP EXPECTED (summer - set up 9am, registration 930am, shooters meeting 10am. Winter schedule add 1 hour for weather and snow removal (10am / 1030am / 11am)
USPSA: Continue with Mar-Oct matches but making 8/27/23 USPSA an outlaw format 2 gun, with 1 gun optional division (pcc only, or pistol only?). Continue with 5 field stages, and 1 classifier. Set up will change to be match day 2 hours prior to shooters meeting, with no discount. SET UP HELP EXPECTED. Set up 8am, registration 930am, shooters meeting 10am.
NO large format match this year (mayhem, NRS, etc). Focus on monthly club matches, new shooters, and set up help.
SET UP: Discussed in length. Day of for steel working great. Do the same for USPSA to eliminate burning up both days. Most people think set up is optional and don't think they need to help. We need to change this perspective so that people know it is EXPECT from ALL shooters. This is a volunteer sport, if you want it to continue - STEP UP, HELP OUT! Also moving to the day of set up, we can lean on ALL shooters that show up to shoot, to help set up as well. Will set out a sign up clipboard, and explain that we want all shooters to volunteer to help with at least 3 matches a year, this will help split up the workload.
Match Fees - Keep as is - Steel $20 1st entry, $10 2nd. USPSA keep at $20, limited to 1 entry only, no set up discount.
Membership fees - keep as is, $40 family.
