2020 Western States Single Stack 22-23Feb20

Recommended Posts

Wonder why the 2020 Western States Single Stack and Revolver Championship for next February was cancelled?

 

Are there any other Single Stack matches coming up?

It's not on Rio's calendar at all, that I could see.

For this year, we are allowing competitors the choice to shoot in an optional division that has a mounted optic on their traditional single stack. Shooters in this optional division, will not affect the final overall outcome of this traditional Single Stack match, they will only be shooting for score against those in this new division.

Stages - 13 Stages + Chrono

NON-Sanctioned / OUTLAW Match - (because of our additional division, we will no longer be a sanctioned match)

Average low in Feb is 48°F with average high of 72°. So it’s freezing for you Hawaiian guys.

Before this thread started and the updated practiscore page I inquired the match director wssc1@gmail.com and received this response:

 

Larry,

 

The match has been cancelled, and will no longer take place at Rio Salado, possibly another location in the future.

 

Thank you,

 

Steve

 

I was asking because there was nothing on the Rio Salado calendar. That was two days ago.

So now it’s really up in the air.

The coldest match I ever shot was the 09 WSSSC. It started drizzling Saturday morning and finally turned to snow on Sunday.

Last year I had to chop ice off the windshield Saturday morning before leaving to the range.

Dunno any specifics but there is some ongoing drama at Rio Salado. All I know for sure is that I am registered, I have paid and am squadded. PS says registration (re)opens in 16 hours from now.

There is this on the PS page:

 

Registration to the match is now on hold as we are awaiting direction from the Rio Salado Board of Directors. We expect their issues to be resolved in a few days.

The cancellation was announced on the WSSSC Facebook page last night, but I don't see it on there now.

It pains me to say it guys, but it is definitely canceled.

 

 

Is there a definitive reason given? Loved shooting this match every year.

Its still on PS, reg opens in 3 weeks. 

Wondering why they are going to outlaw to allow a dot on a 1911?

if it is a outlaw match, then I hope that they go back to the old targets and scoring system when the match first came out.

Got this email this afternoon:

 

Western States Single Stack Championship 2020
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the WSSSC match has been canceled. We appreciate everyone who has supported the match during its great run. We will keep you posted with any future developments.

Thanks Steve Horsman

For those that have already paid and registered, your full receive should post to your statement in the next few days.

I had signed up for the SS match, pd and squadded.  However, I received an email today that

my match fee was being refunded and the match was cancelled.  Still trying to find out

what happened.  Hoping they can get it worked out and still have the match???

Too bad, I got to go to my first Desert SS match last year. I live in Montana so what a treat to escape the cold and snow in February and go get warm and shoot.

 

LOL, it snowed in AZ, we did not even bring a jacket. But it was a great match, even the 50 yard stage was great fun. Too bad it is cancelled. Maybe Vegas can pick it up.
