Local IDPA/IPSC/Steel matches this month and next

I'm interested in PCC for the time being, but obviously pistol is there regardless. I have yet to get a MD HQL or pistol, but will for 2018.

I'm in Carroll County, so "local" to me isn't necessarily the complete picture. I'm trying to sort out the ranges, the clubs that sponsor IDPA and/or IPSC matches and practice, the dates, times and any special information. Steel seems to be very popular too, and I THINK it's part of USPSA, or at least loosely affiliated, and there appears to be independent steel matches as well. I'll update the text of this first message as you experienced practitioners clarify the facts.

My goal is to keep a running list of matches in one place for easy planning, and thought I'd share. Trying to use the various databases (Practicescore, club lists, etc) and keep track of it all is challenging. Looking at this, it's probably easier to maintain in Excel, then export, copy and paste to this first message as an edit to keep it current. Let me know if I'm duplicating effort.

EVENTS

IDPA
08/26-26: Arnold, MD (Anne Arundel Fish and Game Association)
09/20: Thurmont, MD (Thurmont Conservation & Sportsman's Club)

09/10: Lexington Park, MD (Sanners Lake Sportsman Club, Southern Maryland Practical Shooters)
09/17: Lewisberry, PA (West Shore Sportsman Association, West Shore Practical Shooters)
09/23: Sudlersville, MD (Delmarva Sportsman Association, Eastern Shore Practical Shooters)
09/23-24: Thurmont, MD (Thurmont Conservation & Sportsman's Club, Maryland Practical Shooters Association)

I'm trying to get to as many matches as I can this month to first observe and then see about getting the required orientation/briefings some of the clubs require before participating in a match. So far I've found but haven't verified:

IDPA - Thurmont: August 20
IPSC/USPSA - AAFG: Aug 25/26

There's also a Super Steel competition at Peacemaker 8/26.

I'm signed up for IDPA and have my packet. I'm signed up for USPSA but haven't received anything yet.
Aug 25/26 @ AAFG is IDPA, not USPSA

Yes, I believe the first Saturday of each month at AAFG is now USPSA.

Correct. Our (AAPS) next match is 9/2 at AAFG. If you're looking for a USPSA match that will almost certainly have PCC shooters, take a look at West Shore (just south of Harrisburg) on 8/19.

Here's the practiscore link:

https://practiscore.com/wsps-august-...match/register

Registration goes live tomorrow night (8/13) @ 8 PM. A number of us usually go to this match each month. It's a very well run and challenging match.

Hey Jason, thanks for the link to the WSPS match in Lewisberry. I've edited my post and added it in, I'm thinking if I want to get started in USPSA this might be the match to kick it off. Hopefully I get my member packet this week.

If you're at your match on September 2 I'll say hello...

John

John, I'll definitely be a the 9/2 AAPS match as a match director. As far as other USPSA matches "local" (within 2 hrs or less) of you in August and Sept.:

8/27: Thurmont USPSA (MPSA - Maryland Practical Shooters Assoc.) / https://www.facebook.com/mduspsa/

9/9: USPSA @ Shadow Hawk (right next to Peacemaker in WV)[this a brand new club and their first match ever]
https://www.facebook.com/events/8083...30074/?fref=ts
https://practiscore.com/uspsa-septem...fense/register
https://practiscore.com/clubs/shadow-hawk-defense

9/10: USPSA (SMPS) @ Sanner's Lake (by PAX River NAS)[this is their monster match which means there will be 50+ rd stages and should be awesome fun for PCC]
https://practiscore.com/southern-mar...match/register

9/17: USPSA (WSPS) @ West Shore

9/23: USPSA (ESPS) @ Delmarva Sportsmen's Assoc. [this is in Sudlersville, MD on the Eastern Shore]
https://practiscore.com/esps-uspsa-august-2017/register (I know it says August in the link but it's for the Sept. match)

9/30: USPSA (AAPS) @ AAFG will host a special 6 stage classifier match. We'll be running 06-03, 99-10, 06-05, 03-04, 09-02 and 99-28

Jason, thank you. I'll edit everything tomorrow, then move it to a new thread that is titled without dates to avoid confusion. I don't have the ability to change the original thread title I think...
