Already, we are up over 25% in Level III matches! No doubt about it, this year IPSC activity worldwide will crush all previous years. This huge surge in activity has somewhat caught us by surprise. Consequently, we are back ordered on the President's Medals. We're doing our best to get completely caught up shortly. Please accept our apologies, and thanks for your patience. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ COSTA RICA "First Level III" ----------------- Last month I had the pleasure to attend the first Level III match held in Costa Rica. Juan Yamuni (CRC Regional Director) and his very capable organizing committee put on a terrific first-time contest. Competitors and officials from more than half-a-dozen countries came together at the range in San Jose for 3 days of shooting fun. Congratulations to Costa Rica, Juan Yamuni, and his team. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IPSC Newsletter (Spanish) "Noticiero IPSC" ----------------- I am pleased to announce that IROA Range Master, IROA Instructor, and long-time friend, Victor Ferrero (ECU) has offered to translate the IPSC newsletter into Spanish. Now Spanish speaking members will be able to subscribe on-line for this service.

One of the plans that came from discussions with these Regional Directors was the concept of an annual Central American and Caribbean "super" Level III destination match. Sixteen stages, 300 competitors... a shooting, sight- seeing, and fun-in-the-sun event... named the Columbus Cup. The participating Columbus Cup Regions would be: Aruba - Barbados - Colombia - Costa Rica - Dominican Republic - El Salvador - Guatemala - Honduras - Jamaica - Mexico - Netherlands Antilles - Nicaragua - Panama - Puerto Rico - Venezuela Extra slots will be set aside for international competitors. The first Columbus Cup will be hosted by Guatemala, the "Land of Eternal Spring". The appeal of Guatemala as a travel destination is its history, tourist attractions, culture, and landscape. Visitors can tour Mayan jungles, climb active volcanoes, explore the pristine Caribbean coast or just kick-back and relax. Let's discover Guatemala's exotic treasures... mark next February on your calendar. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ICS "World Ranking" --------------- The stage is set for world classification and WinMSS is now available on-line (free download). Visit: http://www.ipsc.org/mss.htm WinMSS (Version 126.96.36.199) can easily handle ICS classification stages and their submission to headquarters over the Internet. Shooters (with IPSC Aliases) can setup and shoot classification stages, score them with WinMSS, and send the scores electronically over the Internet to IPSC. You can then look-up your classification and ranking (within Class and Division) on the IPSC web site by entering your IPSC Alias. Set up classification stages at your own club as weekly or monthly events. We encourage shooters to participate as often as possible. The more data received the better. Currently there are 74 Classifier Stages available, and we are planning on having twice that many by the end of the year. If you have any interesting stages in mind that would be relatively easy to set up and fun to shoot, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The results this year will be recorded for classification. Three individual stages and the overall match results will provide the four scores needed for classification. Remember, shooters must have a registered IPSC Alias for their scores to count. Have fun and "shoot-for-score" in the 2002 American Handgunner Postal match.

Due to the 9/11 disaster it has made it almost impossible for international competitors to travel with firearms at this late date. This was going to be a large portion of the competitors. Without them it would be a much smaller match, and that is not how we wanted to get such a grand event launched. The match organizers decided to postpone the Challenge to next year when we can have a full complement of shooters. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PREVIEW "Coming up..." -------------- - World Shoot XIII - Questions and Answers - Upcoming matches - and much more You're in the loop...
