Gentlemen,

i think it would be advantageous to have an events calendar for the Great Northwest. lets everyone know what's available, where, and when, and whatever information the poster cares to include, such as dues, qualifications, POC (point of contact), etc.

It'll also help me/us in scheduling PNW events for dates when there isn't some other big event a lot of people attend going on.

So please post any regularly scheduled events you attend or just know about. please keep the info updated and as accurate as possible. i'll compile all posts into a nice, neat calendar of events here in this first post.

thanks

What: IDPA Practice Match
When: Every Tuesday, 6:30PM start. (Setup starts around 5:30, they sometimes get going early.)
Where: West Coast Armory Range/Bellevue Gun Club
Cost: $12 Entry Fee
Gear: Handgun, mag pouch, usual IDPA match stuff. (Ammo? :p) Oh, and night sights.

Depending on the size of the group, you usually get two runs through the stage. First COF is shot lit, the second, at least since I started going, is shot in low light with most of the lights off. I usually got through 30-50 rounds in a night.

Come out and have some fun. :D

When:Fridays 7:00pm ( I was told by Range master that the early bird gets the worm, because they might start turning people away after attendance reaches 25 or so)
Where: West Coast Armory Range/Bellevue Gun Club
Cost: $12+tax
Gear: Rifle + sling+ 2 mags min., Handgun +holster+ 2 mags min., weaponlights are a plus. When I checked it out, they were running low-light drills for the second half. 25 yd. indoor training bay. Ammo can be purchased at pro shop. (If you wanna shoot anything besides .223/5.56, it would be wise to call ahead and check to see if they allow it in this event.) No steel core/steel case ammo.(425)641-2877 Call for info.


I checked this event out 2 weeks ago and didn't participate,but it looks good. And crowded.
They were Running a drill that involved a crouch-shoot, shoot from cover a few times, mag change, shoot from cover, transition to secondary and shoot from cover. When everyone gotta chance to do it, they hit the lights and did it again low-light w/ or w/o weaponlights. I shall be there this Friday 6/25 and will update info about ammo requirements and anything else I don't know yet.

FNRL: Friday Night Rifle League is a blast, 40 rounds of rifle ammo and 12 rounds of pistol ammo is the minimum, obviously that does not count for missed shots, FTF or any problems. Most guys will show up with 100/20 in ammo.

Back on topic, I'm interested in checking some of the events out if I find employment soon. I'm running low on scratch and ammo :(

It can get pretty crowded in the silver/gold bays, I never really hang out in the bronze bay. I usually go around meal times to avoid the crowds.

Who: Eugene Practical Shooters
What: USPSA/IPSC, IDPA, and speed steel pistol.
When: 1st Saturday IPSC, 2nd Saturday speed steel (range benefit), 3rd Saturday IDPA. 4th Saturday range cleanup work party.
Where: Isaac Walton League of Eugene, on Issac Walton Road. From the Lorane Hwy, off Chambers, take a left at McBeth rd (at the Grange Hall) and follow McBeth to a left onto Issac Walton.
Why: Because it's excellent.
How: Gates open at 8:00, registration at 8:30. First time attendees must arrive between those times for an orientation and rules overview. Gates close at 9:15, and lock. Walk through begins concurrently, shooting starts between then and 9:30. Shooting at 9:00 for steel match.

How much: $10.00 for the steel match. $15.00 for IPSC, and for IDPA without an IDPA membership card. IDPA members shoot for $10.00.
BYO ear and eye - Rx eye is OK (that's how I roll,) but don't sue anyone if lack of side protection comes back to haunt you. Range is COLD until timer is at the ready.

We get a lot of great and knowledgeable folk, and while I haven't been attending as long as many there - I haven't seen any bad apples yet. Safest practical shooting environment I've been a part of so far, and fun to boot. That said, we could use more ladies.

Edit: We don't stop shooting for sun, rain, hail, snow, or hippies - so dress accordingly and bring water/coffee/whatever. Insider tip - the grange hall on the way in/out opens it's Saturday market near the time we wrap up (around 12:00-1:00,) lots of great seasonal produce and flowers, and stuff. Stop by for some good deals on the way to dinner. Beware of townie VW micro-bus types, but it's a great little market that not a lot of folks know about, unfortunately. The Grange is a great organization.

USTRA, Formerly USTACRA is a carbine match which is similiar in feel to USPSA.

It is held every second saturday of the month, and rules, scores and schedules are found here:

http://www.custersportsmensclub.com/tactical3gun.html

It's a great match and frequented by many WA area LE professionals, as that range is frequently used for LEO training.

Videos of my friends and I running the CoF are pasted below

Since I am working and not shooting the run and gun will start as soon as the public clears out and I can burn off some stress.
