Good morning Everybody, and happy Saturday!!

We hope that you were spared from the damaging floods, and if you were not, that your recovery is swift.

In the world of SLIDPA, we are excited to announce that the stages for our first Sanctioned Match; The 2017 Louisiana Battle on the Bayou, have passed review from our safety officer instructor, and were sent to our IDPA Area Coordinator for review. We are excited to being one step closer to putting SLIDPA "on the map".

Our efforts wouldn't be possible without you, the members and we'd like to thank each and every one of you that comes out to shoot with us!!

If you have a free minute, please give us a rating and leave a review for us! We want to encourage more people to come out and experience our sport, and having reviews is one way that we can reach people and find any issues that we need to correct!!

We hope to see you at our September match!!


As of today, Wed Aug 11th, the match scheduled for Sunday Aug 14 has been cancelled due to weather. It will either be raining, or the combination of humidity and wet ground will make shooting miserable.

Our next match is scheduled for Sunday, Sep 11th. We will announce when sign-up is live for next month's match.

Enjoy your weekend!!!
