IDPA Clinic - April 26th, 2003
The weather conditions were perfect as we kicked off the IDPA
season with our annual clinic, held Saturday April 26th. The
mild sunny day was only brightened further by the addition of
three young ladies to our
Watch out guys - these gals take their
total attendance of over 20.
Our morning started out in the pavilion with a number of our
IDPA staff briefing those in attendance on everything from
holster selection, to rules of the game, to basic (and, of
course, safe) gun handling techniques, and everything in
between. Our "continental breakfast" was of course provided by
none other than our own Combat Cuisine!
In short order, it was off to the ranges where once again our
able IDPA staff ran the squads through a series of drills and
exercises to provide an introduction and exposure to those
scenarios that will be seen at the IDPA classifier. This was
also an opportunity for some of our own staff to clear out a few
of the cob-webs in preparation for the upcoming IDPA season.
After a morning full of fun, challenge, and, yes, a little
frustration at times (we're sure it was the wind), we all
enjoyed filling our appetites with another fine meal provided by
Combat Cuisine. As an added bonus, all three ladies took
advantage of an opportunity after lunch to be "officially
scored" on an actual IDPA station/scenario.
All in all, it appeared a great time was had by all and we hope
that all of those in attendance can make it to our IDPA
classifier to be held Saturday May 17 starting at 9:00 A.M.
Thanks, again, to all of our IDPA instructors, safety
officers, and staff who made this year's clinic safe, enjoyable,
and another great success!
Looks like they had fun!
