Courses of Fire:

Andy Anderson, a number of years ago, donated a trophy “The Most Challenging Stage”. The member that designs the most challenging stage of the match wins this trophy according to votes received from competitors. In order to award this at the Champs I need to get CoF’s from members. The CoF’s must be in compliance with the current IDPA Rules for stage design. The CoF’s must be realistic in terms of design and equipment. I may have to tweak submitted CoF’s to be accommodated on ranges and according to equipment that is available to us. I need these CoF’s to be submitted to me via e-mail by no later than Saturday, 2nd July. I have to submit CoF’s for the match to IDPA USA on 5th July.

Competitors will squad themselves online when their registration has been received and vetted.

As is customary we will have 1 or 2 “Super Squads”.
