IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

ONE GUN ONLY: For the time being, we are only permitting a single gun registration. We will look into allowing two guns in the future.

SETUP HELP: New procedure for setup help.  We need volunteers to help setup at 1300 on FRIDAY. The goal will be to get all stages on the ground on FRIDAY from now on. We will not be doing any setup on Saturday mornings. Please make sure to email pgcuspsa@gmail.com if you are planning on coming out to setup. It is very important that you email us instead of just showing up. This will allow us to contact you if something changes with our setup plans.

NEW SETUP PROCEDURE IN MAY: We’ll going to start asking that our shooters submit stage ideas, and then come out and setup those stages on Saturday morning. Send us a stage design at least one week before the next match. We’ll review/approve the design, and then you can come setup your stage the morning of the match. Get a small crew together to help you setup, and all of you will get to shoot for free. We are going to limit this to one stage a month at first, but we will open this to more stages if this works out well.

Also, please make sure you have at least 3 magazines. The classifier will require reloads. READ THE PCC RULES BELOW!

PCC RULES :
1. For this month, and until we get a handle on this PCC thing, all PCC shooters must be in squad 6.

2. Familiarize yourself with the appendix (http://uspsa.org/document_library/2016/PCC%20Appendix%20for%20USPSA_D8_DNROI_posting3116.pdf) . Especially the items noted below ….

3. You must have a chamber flag. If you don’t have one, a limited amount will be for sale at the match ($2). Please email pgcuspsa@gmail.com if you need me to reserve you one. No chamber flag when you show up to the stage to shoot = DQ.

4. While you may hand-carry or sling your PCC, we highly encourage you to use a bag. Hand carrying or slinging without the muzzle vertical at all time will result in a DQ.
