What Is Your 2021 Match Schedule?

Recommended Posts

Hearing the sad but all too familiar news that Winter Range for 2021 has been cancelled, I know that match directors everywhere are struggling trying to make the same decisions for their 2021 matches while dealing with the constantly changing restrictions associated with the Covid-19 situation.  I commend Blackjack Zak and the Winter Range committee for making the call early enough so that folks have time to readjust their schedules.  No doubt it was a tough call for everyone.

 

With the ammo and component shortages that are likely to be with us for a while, the continuing virus situation and the various state travel restrictions that seem to come and go, and job uncertainty for many, I recognize that a lot of shooters are waiting until the last minute to make their Go/NoGo decisions these days.  While that is certainly understandable, it makes it even harder for the Match Directors who need to decide whether to even hold their match or not when they have no idea of how many people are even thinking of coming to their match.  For a State or above match, or even a large club annual match, decisions about awards, badges, banquets, etc have to be made long before the match date and when 75% of the shooters wait until the week before the deadline to enter, it makes a hard job virtually impossible.  Consequently, I would encourage everyone to get their applications in as soon as possible for the matches they want to attend or they may not be there when you finally decide to go.  While you should check with the Match Directors first, I suspect that the vast majority (if not all) of the matches will be offering a full refund if their match is cancelled or if you need to cancel due to health concerns, so get those applications in!

So, (after climbing off my soapbox) with all that is going on I thought it would be appropriate to start a thread about folks shooting schedules.  Another shooting forum I frequent has a built in Poll generator and I was going to start one here, but if the WIRE has one I can't find it.  So, lets just start this by having folks list the matches they plan to attend (Not wishful thinking but actually plan to attend) and if there is enough interest, I will compile them and post a chart of the matches.  In order to make the task manageable, let's limit it to State Matches, Regional Matches, and with Winter Range cancelled, End of Trail, and I will include Club Annual matches with attendance of over 100 at their last match.  That will be 50 States, 7 Regional (assuming the MAP on the Wire is still accurate , and EOT, plus probably another 30+ annual matches, and we can't forget the BP Folks with Darkness Falls and Dark Day on the Santa Fe!  Probably 100 matches in total.

 

So I will start with Lil Feathers & my anticipated schedule...(Note I am only listing the start date for these multi-day matches)

 

01/28/2021 - Darkness Falls - 2021 SE Territorial BP Championship

01/29/2021 - Dark Day on the Santa Fe - 2021 International BP Championship  (Still waiting for the InterGalactic BP Championship :P)

03/18/2021 - Ides of March - 2021 Florida State Championship

04/30/2021 - Eas'dern Shore Roundup - 2021 Delaware State Championship

05/28/2021 - Shootout at North Mountain - 2021 Pennsylvania State Championship

06/11/2021 - Thunder Valley Days - 2021 Maryland State Championship

06/21/2021 - End Of Trail - 2021 World Championship of Cowboy Action Shooting

 

We are already registered for some of these matches, some of the applications are in the mail, some are waiting for applications to be posted, and only EOT is on hold at the moment while we make personal  schedule adjustments and get our reservations set.  We have also made hotel reservations for all but EOT as well.

 

After that, we will have to wait and see if any other opportunities present themselves, (we do have other commitments unfortunately :rolleyes:), but these are the ones on our schedule at the moment. 

 

Dang, that's a lot of shooting!  I better get busy making ammo!  Now, where did I hide those primers......

So, post your plans, and I hope to see you at one of these matches!

Do you happen to have the dates for those?  I guess I can try to look them up on the wire, but I have found that to be less than accurate. :rolleyes:

I'm just starting to look at the "schedule" for next year.  With WR cancelled the 1st quarter looks to be a washout.  Probably start with local matches here in MN, hopefully around May (April tends to be too cold, but if not, then April).  Looking at 4 annuals, two here in MN, EOT and the AZ state match at Tombstone in October.

I'm thinking:

 

4/8/21 South Carolina State

4/23/21 Alabama State

5/13/21 Georgia State

5/28/21 Mississippi State

7/2021? Maybe Black Gold

9/23/21 Maybe CaC

10/7/21 Tennessee State

10/21/21 South East Regional 

11/5/21 North Carolina State

 

All of those look pretty likely other than CaC and Black Gold, but hopefully.

Oh, you said periscope.  :lol:

 

Hopefully, you will be at the Darkness Fall/Dark Day matches.  You should shoot black powder at least once per year to force you to clean your guns, don't you know.

We've got 2 apps in for January,  both in Arizona.  One app in for May, out of state.

Now we sit, hold our breath, and cross our fingers that the match(s) is/are not canceled. 

 

Deep breath, 

BS

Due to most of the bigger matches being during my busy season, or potentially busy time I’ll probably only make a handfuls of local monthly shoots.

Anything beyond about 3 hours one way is a definite ‘maybe’ for me. Bowling Green is 5 hours one way!

Seriously though, open invitation to come shoot if you're ever up this way.

It was on our list for 2020, but the whole Covid thing put a stop to most of our travel this year.  Although it's still a possibility, it's looking like we will have personal schedule conflicts for 2021, but it is already on our tentative list for 2022!
