Welcome to the 2008 Georgia State USPSA/IPSC Championship hosted by the River Bend Gun Club. We are excited to be hosting our first major match in only our second year as a USPSA club. This weekend we have a broad range of challenges incorporating the USPSA DVC philosophy and look forward to seeing the depth of competition that Georgia is known for tackle this year’s Match. If this is your first visit to River Bend Gun Club, this year’s match is taking place on the SASS (Cowboy) range but we are soon to break ground on the new Action Shooting Complex that will move USPSA, Action Pistol, 3-Gun, IDPA, and Steel Challenge matches to their own range designed with them in mind. I hope to see you back next year to see the new facility and enjoy our Georgia hospitality again.
I also want to extend a HUGE thank you to our sponsors this year. We have a record number of sponsors for the GA State match this year and it is their generosity that helps make this match happen. So please, next time you are considering a purchase, visit the sponsor links at http://gastatechampionships.com and support them by spending your shooting dollars with them. This match would not be possible without the generous contributions of the staff of RO’s, CRO’s, statisticians and support people who donate countless hours of their time and effort to be part of your Georgia Championship. Please take a couple of seconds and say ‘Thanks’ to these many volunteers when you see them around the range. They have all given very unselfishly of themselves to bring you this match and to support the sport of practical shooting.
As you participate in the match please remember we are here to have a good time, enjoy some fellowship with friends old and new, and participate in a sport that people in other areas of the World cannot because of governmental restrictions and regulations. In November, each of you has an opportunity, no a responsibility, to cast a vote for President of the United States. Please cast your vote and make your voice heard.
We wish you the best of luck and hope that you enjoy the match.
