Squad Schedule (revised)

  • October 28, 2011 5:34 am

Here is the final squad matrix.

Squad Schedule

After collapsing the squads we ended up with one less squad on Saturday. Take a look at the matrix, everyone starts at the same time now and there is no break.

Squad Lists – Final squad list will be posted at the range. We don’t plan on shuffling anyone without talking to them first but be sure and double check what squad you are on when you get there to register.

Final Set Up

Here’s some pics of the stages after final set up on Thursday. See you all on the range!!

We still have room for walk ups on Sunday.

SHOOTERS MEETING

SHOOTERS MEETING

Since nobody goes to shooters meetings anymore myself included I don’t have one at The Monster Match. This will serve as your shooters meeting for Saturday and Sunday shooters this coming weekend.

RO’s – This match isn’t possible without the help of the RO’s and staff. Please thank them when you see them. They are out here busting their butts for your enjoyment.

Schedule – As this is your shooters meeting, please get registered in time and be at your assigned stage ready to shoot at 0800 on your shooting day. We have a ton of shooting and a ton of pasting/resetting to do. Please help out resetting the stages, that is part of your duty as a competitor. In order to stay on schedule everyone has to pitch in. Follow the directions of your RO’s and please don’t paste ahead of the scoring RO. Final, official squad list and schedule will be posted here on Friday.

Safety – USPSA rules including safety rules are in effect. Safe tables will be available for your use. Do not handle firearms or ‘gun up’ at your car please, that is a DQ’able action.

Costume Safety – I know some of the costumes are incorporating fake or toy firearms. That is fine but lets leave them in holster or slung or whatever. I don’t want to see firearms pointing around fake or not. If your costume is incorporating a real firearm that’s cool too but it will definitely stay in the holster. I will be the final authority on the cool / uncoolness of that stuff so ask me if you have a question.

Registration – Opens 0700 each day with shooting starting promptly at 0800. Please be there in time to get registered and ready to shoot so we can start on schedule. If everyone waits until 0745 then we obviously can’t get 100 people registered by 0800.

Awards – We will have a short and sweet awards ceremony Sunday after the match. I will be awarding the Division winners only. Class and category winners will have plaques mailed out within the week.

Raffle – Drawing will be Sunday after the award ceremony. Info on the raffle in next post.

Let’s Do Lunch

  • October 26, 2011 8:39 am

We are having BBQ caterers on Saturday and Sunday. Pulled pork or turkey sandwich, mac n cheese, potato salad for side and soda. Cost will be $10.

You will need to purchase a lunch ticket sometime during the day. We will have them for sale at registration in the morning and they will also be for sale throughout the day.

We can make last minute number adjustments with the caterer based on ticket sales so I would appreciate you purchasing the ticket at sign up if you plan on having lunch out there. It would help us out. I haven’t used this company before but they have some good reviews….so my fingers are crossed they are good.

Set Up Party Weekend

  • October 25, 2011 5:31 pm

If you haven’t put on a major match you have no idea how much work goes into it. These folks have been working on some of their stages for a week at their houses then bringing them out to the range this weekend for set up. Still a bunch to do but the bulk of the heavy lifting was complete.

Huge thank you to Brad and Dave Johnson, Kristen, Charles and EB Kibert, Dan and Terrisa Bernard, Jordan, Mark Schneider, Don ‘the paint man’ McIntyre, Joe Homolash, Russel Mann, John ‘the digger’ Norwood, Jay Corn, Dave Jenkins, Terry Jensen, Jim Schoonmaker, Bruce Rosenthal, Jim Lemanski, Andy ‘the Mustache’ Martinez.

I sent the call out for help and these folks donated their free time, expertise (or lack there of), and equipment. Then slaved all day, two days for some, in the FL sun surrounded by mosquitos for your enjoyment. If you see these folks on the range this weekend you should tell them thanks. They gave up time with family or the couch and a football game so you could have fun. There is no way this match could happen without the help of folks like these.

Stages are coming together great!! They are gonna be cool!
