Hi Ladies and Gents,

Just a quick favor to ask. If you are a member of SLIDPA and have not yet been classified, can you please send us a message here???

We're having issues contacting a few people and we know that Facebook is a big part of our outreach.



I want to thank Amanda Lemmi for putting on a great match this past Sunday. Thanks for your hard work and making some great stages. It was a job well done.

I wanted to pass on some information to you in preparation for the upcoming matches.

I was able to have a really good meeting with the range owners, and we are now allowed to shoot PCC at Southern Shooting Center. We are allowed to shoot it at our monthly matches from here on out. This will also include the Battle On The Bayou 2018. I guess PCC sales are about to go up for SLIDPA members.

Speaking of Battle On The Bayou 2018, it looks like our match will be held on March 3, 2018. This is the first weekend of the month. We are still ironing out some details on if this is going to be a Tier 2 or a Tier 3 match. We are shooting for a Tier 3 match. As more details come out and are finalized, I will send out that information.

We will be moving our monthly November match from Sunday, November 12th to Saturday, November 18th. We are moving the match because this will be our annual night match. We are going to run it in a different format this year. We will begin shooting around 4:00 and shoot 4 stages. We will break for dinner (provided by SLIDPA). During dinner, the staff will change the stages a round a bit and we will shoot them again in the dark. Potentially, we will shoot 6-8 stages that day. Last year, we had a big turnout for this match and we are hoping for the same turnout. We had a lot of fun, a little cold, but a lot of fun. As this match gets closer, you will be given more information.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Central Arkansas Shooters Association (CASA) is looking for CSO/SO for the Fall Brawl on October 21st. It is a Tier 3 match. I have signed on to work the match.

If you are interested in working the match, send Kris Walley a message and I'll put you in touch with the guy running the match.

If you are interested in shooting the match, the sign up information is on the IDPA website.

Mark your calendars. ...
