    This Sunday, 20 JAN 19, Crystal Coast IDPA will host our first match at Flatwoods, 111 2nd Amendment Lane Hubert, NC 28539. We will run 6 stages, bring 100 rounds minimum. IF time permits, we will also run the 5X5 Classifier right after the match. Our range is all wooden decked, as in you will be shooting on a clean surface, NO MUD!!!! Please join us and help us grow this match, many thanks.

    Only 1hr from me, might be able to make a future match. Is this going to be a regular thing the 3rd Sunday of each month? Also, what's the start time?

    Couple of us are coming from H20, and maybe Buccaneer. We'll bring our old man guns.

    Look Ma! No Mud!

    *except for the 50 yard standards stage... which I also enjoyed.
    Excuse me, only 48 yards, because @John Z said "only a jerk would set up a 50 yard stage". ;)

    Sorry I didn't get any action shots. I was too busy messing up score sheets.

    This match was a lot of fun. We had a large time.
    Lots of Marines, and a few of us old guys. When the scores get posted we'll see if old age and treachery can beat youth and stamina.

    It was nice to come home from a match and not have to take my magazines apart to clean the mud and dirt out of them.

    Hi is this going to be a repeatable thing ?I just looked up what idpa is and low and behold I own a shield. You're 2 hours away but screw it I don't mind a drive every now and then. Seeing I work every Saturday Sunday matches are perfect for me.

    GREAT, look forward to you joining us this month on Sunday the 17th. I promise you will have a FUN, SAFE and challenging match, with some very good people, most of our shooters are US Marines, some of the finest human beings on the planet, as are all that serve or have served in any Branch, but here in the Camp LeJeune area, we are pretty much SEMPER FI !!!

    Unfortunately I can't make it this month. I volunteer as an assistant scout master and my boys have something going on that weekend. Hopefully next month. I will be at the ant hill match

    Is the match Sunday still on? Forecast for Sunday afternoon is a little iffy. I should be able to make it if the forecast doesn’t get any worse.

    yes it is a GO for tomorrow and thanks for asking. The forecast as of right now, is worst it gets is 15% rain at 1500, so we are GO TO GO. Anyone coming down from the Raleigh area, there will be plenty of quality brass for sale (indoor range purchased, not outdoor range pickup stuff) I won't post prices and stuff on this thread, as I think that is not in compliance with the forum rules.

    John Z, enjoyed the match Sunday, you guys are building something nice up there in J'ville. All the guys I shot with from BGC seemed to like the setup too. I'll be back, maybe I can catch a zombie match at some point too. Don't be shy with the longish distance stages either, those are my favorites.

    Folks, if you get a chance, check out one of john z's matches. You will have a good time and be challenged too.

    Thanks for taking the time to post up some kind words Dave, we try hard. What we are trying to build here is going to be a GREAT place for our ZSA matches, IDPA and also to do the USMC Unit private training/match events. It's alot of work, and as everyone on the Coast of NC is very well aware, doing work with all the rain can be a bit trying at times, but by late Spring/Early Summer, we should have 7 bays ALL DECKED and painted. Really appreciate all the support from the IDPA community!!!
