AGC APRIL MATCH REGISTRATIONS NOW OPEN

OK, trying to be optimistic here by opening registrations for the April 4th Steel Challenge Match. IDPA and 3 Gun will follow in a week or so. My guess is that we will have to cancel all of these, but our hope is that something will change and we can all sling some lead.

https://practiscore.com/agc-steel-ch...-2020/register

Depending on the circumstances, we may need to change some things between now and then. As for now, lets just register as if nothing has happened and we will play it by ear.

As we continue to evolve, we are making changes/improvements based on need and feedback from all of you. Here are few of the changes that we are going to put into place for the April match.


1. Match Name - AGC "Outlaw" Steel Challenge Match

2. Added Divisions - The divisions now match the SCSA rulebook. It may seem a bit much, but whatever. If you don't care about your score or are not inclined to read through the rules to determine what division you should be in, then simply choose the Open Division
The 12 divisions we now have are as follows
-Open
-Limited
-Production
-Single Stack
-Revolver
-Carry Optics
-Rimfire Pistol Iron
-Rimfire Pistol Open
-Rimfire Rifle Iron
-Rimfire Rifle Open
-Pistol Caliber Carbine Iron
-Pistol Caliber Carbine Open

3. Added an MDS Username declaration on the registration page

4. Eliminated the 50% discount on a shooters 2nd gun - This is to ensure that we can accommodate as many individual shooters as possible, while still allowing those who really want to shoot two guns to do so. We'll see how this goes and may revert to the old policy when the weather starts to turn cold again

5. Most importantly, I added this disclaimer to the Registration page and on the welcome email

Disclaimer:
This is a fun/unsanctioned match. Our program is still in it's infancy, we learn something new about how to make things better each month, and we are still trying to figure out what we want to be when we grow up. As such, we always welcome constructive criticisms and/or suggestions.

All of that said, at the Match Directors discretion, there may be a few local exceptions/deviations from the SCSA rule set (ie. maximum magazine load out will not be enforced). If you are the type that this will bother, will be a problem for, or will cause you to criticize/condemn/complain incessantly, then please consider finding another match to shoot in.

There is a ton of work that goes into putting on these matches and we receive a great deal of positive feedback on our progress (which is appreciated). We are committed to making this match the best it can be for as many shooters as possible and will always do our best to exceed the expectations of the majority.

Thanks to everyone here for the feedback. This won't be the end of the changes we make, but I think it is a step in the right direction.

Signed up. The caveats were clearly presented and concise.

Guess you cannot reschedule to mid to late April. Apr 4th is dicey. 90% chance we are still in lockdown.

Are you just overly optimistic or do you have a direct line to God?

I am merely looking at the data from other countries. Obviously one cannot predict when we are on the other side and they lift the lockdown, but I'd give odds on mid to late April based on the data.

Me and the Mrs signed up and squadded up, because we are optimistic romantics at heart. All this takes is a little imagination!

Having a back up plan to reschedule for the last Saturday (Delta shoots steel on the last Sunday) might not be a bad idea. Everyone that signed up for the match is in, those that have to drop out if the date moves don't get the MEGARMS stink eye (this time).

We will play it by ear. Scheduling of the bays plays a big role in this. Not too mention, we would be having a steel challenge match the following weekend. We do not need that many pissed off wives, but we will see. They may want us out of the house after a month of this.

I am actually a pretty big pessimist and this situation is no exception. That said, don't want to be caught with my pants down when Trump addresses the nation this Wednesday and announces that he has come up with a cure and a vaccine and that we can all go back to our normal lives by April 4th.
