The 17th is open to staff only and was changed to provide the option for the staff can shoot the match over two days similar to competitors. The range will be open to competitors while the staff is competing on the 17th.

The match is scheduled for competitors to be shot in either a one day (Friday of Saturday)or two-half day formats (Saturday & Sunday AM). There will be approximately 360 total slots available, at this time there are about 125 slots taken including staff.
Fourteen stages have been submitted to USPSA for approval. Once again the match has a low light stage; however, the stage to address some of the suggestions for improvement made by the 2015 competitors.

New for this year will be larger cash payouts. Not less than $10 per paid competitor will be added to the awards budgets. We will provide updates as to how the payouts will be distributed as we get closer to the match.
