Over the Australia Day long weekend, the Adelaide Pistol and Shooting Club hosted the 2017 IPSC State Titles.
This match is the biggest IPSC match held in the state each year.
The match preparation started back in August with a group designing stages to submit to IPSC Australia for approval. the club started to build the many stage props that were going to be needed to hold this match.
There were 14 stages and the covered ranges needed to be used for a match of this size. Using the covered ranges posed a unique challenge that we had to protect the ISSF target frames. It was decided to unbolt them and move them to one side. This worked well.
To put a match this size together required a lot of dedicated people putting a lot of work in.
Match day finally arrived and the range officers shot their pre-match on the Thursday and Friday, along with a few club members who were helping with the running of the event.
The pre-match was a good chance for members to have a rest, having to only cater for 30 people and a chance to see how the kitchen was going to function, with 150 plus people to feed over the weekend with close to 60 from interstate.
And what a match it was!
All volunteers did an amazing job.
To put on a match like this is a great show of team effort amongst the club members. The exposure to interstate shooters was excellent. There were many positive comments about the AP&SC facility.
Well done to the club on an amazing team effort. The icing on the cake was winning the best STICS match for 2016 season.
The AP&SC welcomes new members – club members are passionate about the sport and provide on-site Firearms Safety Awareness Training to SAPOL approved people who join the club.
Please be aware that we DO NOT cater to un-licenced people wanting to pay to shoot. Only genuine people who are interested in the sport of shooting may send enquiries to the secretary by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
