I'm not against the match in Florida, just pointing out that air fare to Las Vegas is less expensive than most air fares.

USA is only an hour or so from Orlando. Super easy to fly in and out of and not hard to find a cheap flight.

 

Tampa as well. Last time i shot a match at USA I flew in there as the airfares were significantly cheaper than flying into Orlando.

I shot the last western regional in UT a few years ago. Keep in mind this is before everyone was boycotting 3GN.  There was only 100 shooters or so.  I think that’s when Charles decided that was the last western match for them. I personally live in FL and I love traveling out west to different matches.  It’s nice to get out of you current environment and meet some new folks.  
They did that themselves by turning it into a bay match. I shot that match and was less than enthused. I think there was 2 targets over 200 yards. They tried to come back out to Oregon after not having a true western regional on the board, but it was short notice and during hunting season. 3GN shot themselves in the foot as far as out west is concerned. And I do travel fair amount to shoot as well. It's nice to get out and get a change of pace from time to time.

Yeah, the whole 3GN thing is kinda crazy.  How they went from the most influential group, to all but gone is crazy.  Kind of an end of an era.  We’ll see if UML can continue to grow.  In my opinion, it would be nice to get some type of point series, and national standings organized kind of like 3GN did.  I guess we shall see.

I am definitely in!  I missed the last two years, but have hit the two or three before that, and they have been, by far, the best 3-gun matches I have ever shot.  I'll miss the long range stuff, as I think they only have one range where they can get out to 400, but I'm sure it will still be a great match.

I have shot a couple of 3GN matches, as recently as this year, and I was shocked at how...bad they were.  Like worse than a club-level 3-gun match.  Unless there is some drastic improvement, I'll probably never shoot another 3GN match.  And as a local club president who has run a number of matches, I feel bad for them, knowing how much work and effort goes into running a big match.

I think USPSA should move the Nationals to different venues.  As long as a range will except the match it should be moved every year.  This will allow people from different regions to attend if they don't want to travel far for a match.  Share the wealth.  Unfortunately I will not attend the match this year in Florida.  That is a long trip from California.  I did like it in Vegas because I could drive to the matches.  I will be patient and see where the match is in 2020.

You cannot drive up to the bays. I recommend a cart!

You will def want a cart or a way to tote your gear easily.
