   The match hotel for provincials will be the *Heritage Inn & Suites*. They have continually supported us through out the years so it was only fitting that we use them once again for their great services!

The doors will be open at 5:30pm, cocktails 5:30-6:00, Supper at 6:00. We will also be using our local Brooks Food Bank again to provide us their great lunches for the entire match! Any non-perishable food donations are always accepted!

   There will be draws for some guns like last year, I will post pictures and info of the guns once we have them available. The prize table may change a bit as we go along but so far that's what we are looking at. Once the stages are available for posting, they will be posted here!

 

A quick note from the MD's...

  As many of you are aware the Bullet Shop will be the 2017 IPSC Alberta Match Sponsors and have received approval as Match Ammo for the event. This means if you are shooting Match Ammo you will automatically pass the Chrono stage. A question was raised on the forums as to what the requirements for this were as a competitor and if previously purchased ammo can be used. Below is the MD's response after speaking with The Bullet Shop, reviewing the rule book and speaking with the PTO and a Provincials Range Master.

  The short answer is Specific Match Ammo must be purchased at the Match to receive exemption in accordance to IPSC Rule 5.8.1.1

  Likewise, in accordance to 5.8.1, I will be posting in the next day or two the ammo that will be available for purchase from the Bullet Shop as "Match Ammo" to receive exemption form chrono. i.e. JTT 124gn 9mm Minor etc. I will also provide a round count as at least that many rounds must be purchased. The ammo may be ordered in advance but must be picked up at the Match where a 2017 Provincials Match Ammo Receipt will be provided which will include the following info:

Be labeled 2017 Provincial Match Ammo
Name of the Purchaser.
The description of the ammo ( 124gn JTT 9mm Minor )
The number of rounds purchased.

  Anyone wishing to purchase match ammo MUST order before June 1st to ensure availability. We will have ammo at the match but worried that we will run short not knowing how many rounds to have.

  Failure to supply this receipt when requested by Chrono Crew will result in the competitor's ammo being subjected to the chrono station as though it were NOT match ammo and subject to the normal requirements and repercussions. Of course any previously purchased Bullet Shop ammo may be used in the match but you will be required to pass Chrono. If you would like to ensure a "pass" at the chrono station you will need to buy Match Ammo.

  Again, there are the IPSC Rule book requirements of Match Ammo. We did not decide these stipulations on our own. I would be happy to answer any questions but please review 5.8.1 for a clearer understanding before posting as it will likely clear up many of the pertinent questions.
