Monthly matches are held on the first Saturday of every month. We send out an email to the club contact list with all of the necessary information for each month’s match about 5 days prior to the match. If you would like to signup to the mailing list, please use the form at the right side of the page. Here is some of the generic information that doesn’t change month to month.

REGISTRATION : We use online registration via Practiscore. Our club page can be found here: https://practiscore.com/clubs/pgc . Our matches are posted sometime the Monday before the match. This will usually happen before 11:59:59 PM on Monday. If it doesn’t, the MD got busy and it will be posted the next day. The registration will be on Practiscore though. If you don’t see it there, it isn’t up yet. You don’t need to email the MD or ask on Facebook about it.
NEW SHOOTERS : A new shooter orientation will be held at 9:00am. 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. We highly recommend that you attend one of the Steel Challenge matches at PGC before attempting a USPSA match if you have never participated in a competition pistol match before.
MATCH SETUP : We do match setup on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. If you would like to help setup, contact the match director at firstname.lastname@example.org . All setup staff get to shoot the match for free.
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.
MATCH TEARDOWN : Each squad is responsible for tearing down their last stage. Please check with a match director to get approval to tear down before you remove any of the props.
RESULTS : Unofficial match results will be posted to practiscore.com immediately following the match. Official results are posted to uspsa.org a few hours after the match (search for SC03). We will also begin linking the results to the “Match Results” link at the top of the page.
