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 $20 per shooter. 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 Shooter’s Meeting / Safety Briefing starts 15 minutes before each match. Everyone registered before that meeting starts, has 2 chances to win a free pass (value $20) to any IDPA match we run that year. ( A small token of our appreciation for showing up on time and not disrupting the squads! )
NOTE: At this time, we are not allowing the use of PCC guns in our IDPA matches / practices. Once a policy has been established for how to run this division, and our Safety Officers trained on how to safely supervise their operation, we will revisit the issue.
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.
Any additional practices will be posted in the IDPA Special Events and News section below. ALL events are also posted on the Events Calendar.
Our next date for IDPA Classifiers is scheduled for Sunday, May 6th, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Walk-ins will not be classified.
