The first Sunday in August was our third nationally registered CPCA (Canadian Police Combat Association) match for the 2019 shooting season with 11 shooters
in attendance. Hot weather made for an uncomfortable but enjoyable long day of shooting. The remaining registered CPCA match for the 2019 season will be held on the first Sunday of October (October 6th) followed up by the Canadian National PPC competition in Victoria October 11-13.
All Members of the Canadian Police Combat Association are welcome to compete in the registered matches during the year in order to have their scores submitted to CPCA for classifications.
Three of our shooters attended the Washington State Championships this month with Mark Horsley taking match winner in the open class 1500 revolver match. Russell Sorsdahl took second grand aggregate in his class. Russell Sorsdahl and Bob Stoddart also made the Washington State Governor’s top 20 PPC shooters list again this year.
September 1st will be our regular monthly practice/training match. Our regular training/practice matches for the rest of the year will be held on the first Sunday of November and our special Christmas match being held on the first Sunday of December. The Christmas match will have a turkey shoot and other fun shoots including a one on one balloon match and an Oregon walk down match following our regular PPC course of fire.
Club members are welcome to come out and observe and/or participate in our practice/training matches, as well as shooters from other clubs on a drop in basis. For information on participation, course of fire, equipment and ammo requirements please contact me, or the PPC chief range officer/match director, Russell Sorsdahl.
Several of our shooters are also preparing to attend the World PPC Championships being held in Australia in September.
Remember to stay safe on and off the range.
