Reminder: July 2nd, 6PM - MISS Worknight

Wed July 2nd, we'll be handling some basic range maintenance - we'll be planning a thank you match in July (a weeknight) for those that came to lend a hand.

Lemme know if you can make it!

McHenry IPSC Elections

The old range... We've grown since...
I wanted to take a moment out to thank everyone who has contributed to the club: You guys make the difference! You guys come out and keep the club alive!

I'd especially like to thank Kerry Dean, who did an admirable job as our first real active club president!

See, not long ago, 2007 to be exact, the club was just a ragtag group of people that shot some USPSA classifiers once in a while. There was a lack of club policy regarding stages, setup, scoring, etc. In essence, there was a lack of seriousness regarding the sport.

This began to change when Kerry, Tom and I started to really get serious about growing the club by moving it to On-Target, then Alpha, bringing more involved stages to the club and encouraging people to start taking the shooting a bit more seriously.

Before 2013 Area 5 - Kozy, Brownie, Emil, Honey Jack,
Tony Alterio, Linda, Lauren (soon to be shooter), and Les
Today, we've evolved into a club with a slew of honest-to-goodness badass shooters that are working on getting to the upper echelons of the sport. Good job, guys!

All that said, we have some issues facing the club, one of the largest being the cap on match sizes and dates. With this in mind, I'm going to create a committee to explore potential solutions and factors that'll influence the situation - Specifically, I'm curious how GTR Ranges in Waukegan coming on line will impact our match attendance.

I'd like to get more new shooters into the sport, but recognize that my job as president is to keep running high quality matches for the current membership of the club - this is going to be a tough balancing act.

Onward to a great 2014-2015 Season!

Summer Workday - July 2nd, 2014

We've got a bunch of tasks to take care of around the old range, much of it just taking apart our old snow fenced walls, repairing steel, cleaning the conex and sorting wood sticks. Additionally, we'll have a fun match for folks that come and help out!

So... Fire up the grill, get the weiners, and come on out! (Bring some work gloves and ratty clothing)

Wednesday, July 2nd at 6PM!
