With the upcoming bad weather (80% chance of rain) in Thibodaux for the weekend, the February match is going to be cancelled.

Hopefully, this will be the last bit of rain we get so the 2018 Louisiana State IDPA Championship can go on without a hitch. If you are not shooting the match, we invite you to come out and watch as there are 180 shooters registered for the match, some from Canada and Pakistan (what a culture shock they are going to have).

We will resume our monthly matches with our match on March 11th. Look for notifications on Facebook as to when the match is posted for registration.

If you shot the classifier today, and shot a pistol, your classification scores have been entered into the IDPA website. Congratulations to those that bumped up in class. Those that shot PCC, your scores have not yet been entered. The IDPA website is not accepting them. I’m working with them to fix the problem. ...

This is a really nice place to shoot. Mike Plato is a great host. It won’t be hot. ...
