"When some of my friends have asked me anxiously about their boys, whether they should let them hunt, I have answered, yes - remembering that it was one of the best parts of my education - make them hunters."

Henry David Thoreau, 1854

“A citizen who shirks his duty to contribute to the security of his community is little better than the criminal who threatens it.” - Robert Boatman

Action Pistol IDPA December match

Dear IDPA Enthusiasts:

We regret to inform you that, due to circumstances beyond our control, we will not be able to put on an IDPA match at our Whitewater Range this Saturday (December 4th).

We will inform you by email if we will be having a match in January. If we are able to have a January match, it will likely not be on the first Saturday (which is New Year’s Day) but rather on the next Saturday, January 8th.

Hopefully, in January we will be able to put on a “2010 IDPA Postal Match.” For those of you who are not familiar with Postal Matches here is an information link:


Again, sorry about having to cancel the December match. Hope to see you in the future.
