April 8th, 2017 Match Announcement and Online Registration


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.

Match Time : Saturday, April 8th, 2017.  Registration 0900-0945. First shots at 1000. The gate to the club will not be opened until 0815.

Match Fee : $20. (Juniors:$5, New Shooters/Staff:Free)

Round Count : 6 stages (1 classifier) with a round count of approximately 125 rounds. As always, we recommend you bring twice that many rounds in case you need to do reshoots.

Online Registration : https://practiscore.com/palmetto-gun-club-april-2017-uspsa/register

Registration closes at 5:30pm on Friday night. If you do not pre-register and squad yourself by this time, you will not have your choice of squad. This policy is being enforced 100% from this point forward. Any shooter who does not pre-register will be notified which squad they have been placed in during the shooter’s briefing.

Shooters Briefing : There WILL BE a shooters briefing this month. Please report to your bay ready to shoot by 0955.
Payment / Offiline Registration : 0900 in the white classroom building. Registration closes promptly at 0945 so that we have time to sync the tablets and start shooting on time.
NEW SHOOTERS : A new shooter orientation will be held at 0900. If this is your first time shooting a USPSA match, you must attend the new shooters orientation at this time or you will not be permitted to shoot.
MATCH SETUP : If you plan to help setup, please email pgcuspsa@gmail.com for instructions and times. We will be needing setup help both on Friday early afternoon and early Saturday morning.
MATCH/RANGE RULES : COLD RANGE RULES ARE IN EFFECT!!  No handling of firearms unless you are in a designated safety area (cars are NOT safe areas!) or under the direction of a range officer. This means all firearms must be in a bag, box, holster, etc. all other times. No ammo, snap-caps, dummy ammo, etc. will be handled in the safety area.  There are no exceptions!  Also, please remember to wear your eye and ear protection. This also goes for all bystanders/family members that may be joining you on the range. Thanks for your cooperation.
