USPSA Matches at the Palmetto Gun Club BACK ON - Charleston, SC

Recommended Posts

I'm happy to announce Doug Wilton, Bobby Thornton, and John Hill are taking over Match Director duties at PGC. Matches will resume the 1st Saturday of each month starting in March.

For those familiar with PGC, I fully anticipate bigger and better things from these guys. I'm personally looking forward to seeing everyone back out at the range!

Here's the announcement information from FB:

The next Palmetto Gun Club USPSA match will be held Saturday, March 1st at 10:00am. There will be a total of 5 stages (including one classifier). The minimum round count is 100 rounds, but it is always a good idea to bring twice that amount with you.

We are in the process of rebuilding our e-mail list. If anyone wants to sign up for future e-mail announcements, they can use this link : http://eepurl.com/O1bLP or signup at the match.

REGISTRATION : Registration begins at 9:00am. Squadding will be done at registration time. Historically, unbalanced squads have resulted in some squads finishing very early and some squads shooting a whole match without an RO present. To alleviate both of these issues, we are going to "tighten up" on squad sizes. This only works if everyone cooperates. Please be sure to sign up for a squad when you register, and please work with us to keep squad sizes similar both in terms of size and experience level.

The match fee is $15. Starting in April, the match fee will go up to $20, and we will start a new payout program at this time. More details on the new payout program will be sent out before the April match.

A new shooter orientation will be held at 9:00am. If this is your first time shooting a USPSA match, please plan to attend the new shooters orientation.

Weather is currently looking good for this match (mid-40's in the morning, warming up to 70 as the day progresses, 20% chance of rain).

MATCH SETUP : We are trying something new here. We will be doing match setup on Saturday morning before the start of the match. If you show up by 7:30am and sign into the "setup volunteer" sheet, you will shoot for free and receive a work-day credit for PCG. You must sign in by 7:30am in order to be considered staff. Please respond to this email if you are planning on showing up by 7:30am so that we have an idea of how many staff members to expect. We are trying out this method of setup this time as a trial, and we'll adjust as necessary.

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.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday. If you have any comments/questions/suggestions for the new match directors, please track one of us down at the match.

Your new USPSA match directors,

Doug Wilton, Bobby Thornton and John Hill
