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.

IDPA Matches

 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 in the Events Calendar on the Home Page  of our Website.

 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. 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.

 IDPA Practices

 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.  Any additional practices will be posted in the IDPA Special Events and News section below.  ALL events are also posted in the Events Calendar on the Home Page  of our Website.

 The success of any Club’s IDPA program is based primarily on you – the shooters.   You are our customers.  If you have any ideas on how we might make your IDPA experience at WCRHC better or more meaningful to you,  please let me know.  I truly appreciate your input.
