Updated 5/12/2020 Due to the issues surrounding Covid-19 and in compliance with the governor’s Executive Order/Social Distancing guidelines, we are cancelling the May IDPA BUG Match on Saturday, May 30th and all IDPA Practices until further notice.
Unfortunately, our current state requires that we continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as it unfolds. I am staying optimistic that things open up soon, even if we have to make some changes as to how we manage these events. Stay tuned… Mark
These are certainly interesting times… Stay home if you can, stay healthy, and stay tuned for more updates on our IDPA events as we all work our way thru this…
What is IDPA ?
From IDPA.com: “IDPA is the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated ‘real world’ self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual.”
IDPA at Wayne County Raccoon Hunters Club
All IDPA Matches, Practices, and Classifiers are open to the public. You do not need to be a member of the Raccoon Hunters Club.
Our IDPA Match Days are held on the 3rd Saturday of every month, April thru October. We run 2 matches with start times of 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. In-person Sign-Up / Registration opens one (1) hour before each match and closes promptly 15 minutes before the start of each match (9:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. respectively) to allow the staff time to complete the registration and squadding. The cost is $25 and $20 for WCRHC members displaying a current membership card. Any additional matches will be posted in the IDPA Special Events and News section below. ALL events are also posted on the Events Calendar.
The Safety Briefing / Shooter’s Meeting starts 15 minutes before each match.
PCC: With the exception of BUG Matches and our State Match in August, we are now allowing PCC guns to be used in our IDPA matches / practices. The gun must be carried in a gun bag and with an open chamber flag inserted. The gun and flag will only be removed when the shooter is at the firing line in preparation for a low-ready start. Once shooting has ceased, the gun will be cleared and flagged, and re-inserted in the gun bag to be carried from the line.
Summer IDPA Practices are held every Wednesday, April thru September. In-person Sign-Up / Registration opens at 5:00. The cost is $10 per shooter. Practice starts promptly at 6:00pm. A cease fire is called from 4:30PM to 6PM for setup on IDPA practice days.
Winter IDPA Practices are held every Saturday morning from 10:00 am till noon, starting with the first Saturday after Thanksgiving. Details will be posted on this page above during that season, as well as on the calendar.
Holsters: For safety’s sake we are limiting holsters to IDPA-approved holsters only during any of our practices. (Matches have always been this way.) In the event someone arrives at a practice without an IDPA-approved holster, we will allow a bagged gun to be carried to and from the firing line to support a low-ready start.
Any additional practices will be posted in the IDPA Special Events and News section below. ALL events are also posted on the Events Calendar.
IDPA Classifiers will be run every Wednesday night during IDPA practice up until The Great Lakes Regionals (May 18th/19th), and afterwards only the 1st Wednesday of every month. Cost is $10 to just run the Classifier, or free if you have already paid to shoot the practice that night.
Please contact Geff Bush (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any questions concerning the Wednesday night Classifiers.
