Registration opened on September 1st on Matchsignup.org. You must pay the same day you register to keep your spot. The registration period will end February 15, 2018 (you may make changes up until that time). Full refunds are available through February 1, 2018.
Squads numbered in the teens are for the Thursday Staff only shoot. Unless you are staff, you may not participate in those squads.
NOTE: it is very important that you accurately give your email address, phone number and complete all other areas requested when you register. Otherwise, we will not be able to contact you should there be an issue and we will not know your division, etc. Also, you need to input a PIN number when you register so you can change your registration, such as, squad number, division, add special designations like Senior, etc. We may not be able to make changes for you.
If you want to squad with other people, I strongly suggest you coordinate this with your friends before registering. It is very difficult for us to switch people around and increase squad sizes to fit in another friend. While we always do the best we can to help you out, you can manage this task better than we can.

Safety and IDPA Rules:
This Championship will fully use the IDPA rule book in all aspects, including safety. We encourage you to read the rule book in its entirety to understand the all rules and procedures.
Local range rules prohibit muzzles over the berm once a round is chambered and your finger is in the trigger guard. If you are empty and reloading, it is OK that your muzzle is upwards while indexing your next reload. Your finger must be clearly outside of the trigger guard. Make sure your muzzle is pointed at the berm when your slide goes forward in the event of an unplanned discharge that would leave the range. If you discharge a round over a berm, you will be disqualified.
The Homestead Training Center will have safe areas clearly marked in each bay. You may not handle ammo in a safe area. And your vehicle is not a safe area.
Our commitment to you is to have the very best safety officers available to help you enjoy the match. We have designed fun and challenging stages that minimize safety issues. However, nobody is more responsible for your safe actions than you are. As a tier 4 match, you will likely encounter various start positions and various activities in order to access targets.
We recommend that you incorporate in your dry fire practice safe gun handling skills.
Drawing from a holster with your trigger finger fully outside the trigger guard.
Safely accessing your firearm from a place other than your holster, such as a box or duffel bag.
Finger discipline. When reloading & moving,
