“The Indiana State IDPA Championship was a huge success; a testament to the phenomenal dedication of the match directors and staff,” remarked Torres-Reyes. “The day the SO’s were supposed to shoot torrential rains forced a cease fire for the day due to safety concerns. Undaunted, the entire staff showed up bright and optimistic on the day of the match and flawlessly executed the match for over 120 shooters. They then sacrificed their Sunday to come back and finish up their stages. What an amazing group of volunteers! Special thanks to Joe Tyson for his tremendous leadership throughout the challenges of the event.”
Byerly competed against 27 other competitors in the Single Stack Division at the NC Section Championship (USPSA) and won six of the nine stages.
“The NC Section Championship (USPSA) was the most enjoyable USPSA match I’ve shot this year. Nine stages, lots of challenging targets and some unique prop manipulations made for an exciting day. The capacity restrictions in Single Stack Division made stage breakdown particularly crucial,” commented Byerly. “Numerous partial targets made for some difficult shots. Balancing that against speed is the cornerstone of practical shooting. I shot on a great squad Friday and was able to post a winning score for my Division. I also worked with a great crew on Stage Nine over the weekend and observed some fantastic shooting. Thanks to everyone who did a great job putting this match together.”
