It will happen somewhere if not Sparta. I am going to try to get confirmation that they will or will not be able to put on the match by this weekend. If I can't get that, we will start making plans for an alternate location. Sparta MD is unavailable for a few days.

Unfortunately Sparta's match director was unable to put on the Sectional this year.

We are currently in negotiations with a club in central, IL. A local match director met with the club president and got his buy in and support to move the sectional to that club on the same dates. To get an official approval, which we are about 95% sure it will take place, we must put the proposal in front of the membership for a vote. The vote will take place Sunday 10 August 2014. We are already leaning forward on the planning for the match in the anticipation of an approved vote (stages, squadding, etc). We expect to push a full press release via shooting forums, USPSA.org, and social media outlets on Sunday if approved.

It is great pleasure to let everyone know that the Illinois Section will take place October 10-12 at Lefthanders Gun Club, Loami, IL. Loami is located approximately 15-20minutes from Springfield, IL. This is something that came to us on short notice, but we plan on making every effort to get the match registration up and going ASAP. In the next week we will try to get a match hotel established in Springfield, IL. The match will take place in an all day format, with choice of days. Limited slots for Friday to shoot with staff, saturday and sunday normal competitor days. We will have 9 stages and roughly 211 rounds plus chrono. Stay tuned for more updates. http://ilsection.wordpress.com/

Just got confirmation that Matt Mink's Automatic Accuracy will make the Illinois Sectional. Not only will they be sending folks to shoot, they will also be bringing some pro-shop items, and helping out with some prize table items. If there is something you need make sure you call them in advance so they can get it on the truck.

FROM AUTOMATIC ACCURACY

Hello all,

Our staff will be busy over the next few months at quite a few USPSA and IDPA pistol matches. If you are attending any of these matches and need ammo or other product, let us know and we can deliver at the match:

USPSA Area 4 Championship - Fort Smith, AR
IDPA Nationals - Tulsa, OK
USPSA Handgun Nationals - St. George, UT
IL Sectional - Loami, IL
World Shoot XVII - Frostproof, FL
US IPSC Nationals - Frostproof, FL
LA Gator Classic - Thibodaux, LA
SE Pro-Am - Covington, GA
We can deliver ammo to your specs if you give us enough time. Usually a week minimum will suffice. We will have special pricing for match ammo delivered, just give us a call and let us know what gun you shoot, desired bullet weight, bullet type, and velocity and we will hook you up.

We will also have all of our gear there and if you need anything at the match let us know.

Thanks!

We would like to thank Shooters Connection for coming on board and helping us out with targets and pasters for the match. Go see them at http://www.shootersconnectionstore.com/

Match Prizes - We are currently working on plaques for the match by classes / divisions / etc. As far as what will be given away: 30 entries in any division we will give away a gun to HOA. I want to give away some guns so I hope this will entice some more entries to come in. We are also in negotiations with some other companies trying to put together as much as a prize table we can for everyone. Prizes other than plaques and guns will be awarded in your match registration bag and selected by random lottery. Current match sponsors contributing to the prize table consist of Automatic Accuracy, Practical Shooting Sports, Midwest Rifle Works, and SNS Castings.

The final touchings to the stages are being completed this week and we will be submitting to USPSA. Hopefully we will get these posted very soon.

We had a few people inquire on how to shoot this and still make the world shoot. We have competitor slots available for Friday to accommodate you. Self squadding is also available Friday. Springfield, IL Airport is a short 30min drive and Lambert International at St. Louis, MO is an hour and half drive from the range.

Stages Posted: We are waiting on official approval from NROI, but don't believe there will be any issues so we are not going to wait around. If there are any changes we will let you know the specifics, but at this time I do not anticipate any. Total round count is 215 rds.

Due to moving the match from Sparta to Springfield on short notice and almost all the staff being local there will not be a match hotel. Here are some hotels closest to the range, approximately 15-20min. There are also many restaurants, walmart, meijer, and target nearby.

T-Shirt sales will be cut off online on Thursday 4 September so we are able to get the order in time for processing prior to the match. There will be very few t-shirts available at the match for purchase.

So far we have 60 competitors registered for the sectional match with limited being the largest division. They are just a few attendees away from a guaranteed gun for HOA. We have still been working with some manufactures to make sure we can give some good items back in the shooters bags. If you haven't signed up ensure you do as some of the squads are starting to fill up quick. http://ilsection.wordpress.com/2014-illinois-sectional/

I need to register but am waiting on my son's USPSA #. He's shot several matches but I just bought him a membership last week when we decided to go to this match. Should I just sign-up for our spots and register for a squad later?

T-Shirt sales have been extended through tonight SEP 7, 2014. If you want a match shirt get that order in tonight. This is gearing up to be a great match. New walls and props were tested at the club match this weekend. The feedback has been great so far and we anticipate the sectional stages being just as fun and challenging.

The club match at Lefthanders Gun Club (host of the 2014 Illinois Section Championship) this last weekend was easily one of the most fun and challenging club match's I've ever shot. The same people that designed these stages are the same people that designed the IL Sect stages. The crew has really outdone themselves with all the new walls, props, and work to the bays.

The IL Sect match is going to be a great match to shoot.
