Below are the current slate of matches, Kamloops and Victoria are tentative as they are on the same weekend and we’d prefer to see one of them move, we will update as things happen on that. Obviously the 90 day requirement for registration for the April qualifier is not going to be enforced as the PHO is messing with things. Match directors are now free to post registration and hopefully we’ll see conditions changed that will allow the matches to actually happen. We have a Covid procedure in place for matches, once the PHO allows gatherings again.

Please see below from our IPSC President VItaly Kryuchin
Dear Regional Directors,
I would like to share some news from the recent Executive Council meeting:
1) In order to help develop IPSC Rifle in Regions that currently do not have long distance ranges, IPSC Micro Targets are permitted to use at Rifle matches for evaluation purposes for Level I, Level II, Level III to allow distance simulation. IPSC General Assembly is to decide whether to adopt the target.
2) IPSC Executive Council accepted the resignation of IPSC Treasurer Edwin Lim. The reason is the inability to fully perform the functions due to pandemic restrictions. Treasurer’s letter of resignation is attached. Roland Dahlman is announced as an acting IPSC Treasurer. He agreed to continue this job.
3) Handgun World Shoot sponsorship report was presented by Alain Joly. Expecting that the sponsorship would be successful.
4) New nominations were introduced to be awarded to the Regional Directors at the General Assembly: “For Action Air development”, “For Junior development”, “For Rifle development”, “For Shotgun development”.
5) WADA Anti-Doping Rules were presented for EC consideration. The Rules were updated in accordance with the WADA recommendations. Becoming WADA Signatory is one of the requirements to get full GAISF membership.
6) Based on the feedback from the Regions, it was decided not to introduce minimal barrel length and minimal firearm length in PCC. Limitations may be introduced by the Regions based on the national Gun Laws. The number and type of PCC Divisions is to be discussed by the Rules Committee as part of its review of the PCC Competition Rules.
What’s the 90 day business? Are the events going to show up as they did in past to register on first come first served basis? Do we have to have a negative Covid test two weeks prior to event?
Match directors are required to have registration open 90 days before a match, as per our policy and procedures manual. However given that we only just approved this calendar, we will not be requiring that of matches that fall within a time frame less than that right now.
Registration will be most likely through Practiscore but that will be up to the match directors.
Where did you get the idea of a negative covid test being required Dave?
Just wondered if that had something to do with the 90 day thing….
