This is now the time of year for family, friends.. and reflection. Reflecting on 2002, I am pleased to report that the IPSC activity has again shattered all previous records. Regions have reported memberships up pretty much across the board and Level III matches have jumped a whopping 40%! World Shoot XIII in South Africa was an outstanding success and shooters are already preparing for next year's European Shotgun Championship in Italy and the Pan-American Championship in Ecuador. I am also pleased to report that this year has seen a noticeable increase in the number of rifle and shotgun matches around the world. I'd also like to let everyone know that the structure for future 3-Gun Tournaments is well underway. WINMSS "Download The Latest Version" ----------------------------- Version 2 is available on the IPSC web site. Understandably, WinMSS had the usual growing pains but thanks to the constructive feedback from our members the scoring program continues to gain in popularity as users become more comfortable with its many features: 1. Automatically sends Level III results (via the Internet) for posting on the IPSC Results page. This means that Stats Officers no longer have to re-type all the top positions in Level III matches for all the Divisions and Categories. WinMSS does it all automatically. 2. More user friendly and flexible. Different report styles have been an issue. They have now all been refined. 3. Match data can be backed-up (Exported) onto a floppy disk and retrieved (Imported) with little effort. 4. Multiple computers can be used to score a match by dedicating a single computer per Division. For example, a three Division match can have three computers and operators each working independently of the other. Actual networking is coming soon. 5. An extensive Help file is available and WinMSS email support is available 24/7. 6. Immediate classification updates are available via the Internet. Stats Officers are able to download in seconds all the current classification data for competitors (with aliases) automatically! 7. ICS Coordinator Jason Evangelinos is sending out a periodic ICS information newsletter to all ICS members with email addresses. And it gets better! There are several more developments in the planning stages that will be announced as soon as they are further advanced.

Every Region can now have their very own hassle-free National Classification System... no fuss, no muss.

It seemed like every time we wanted to do something more than displaying text or images, the web hosting company would (or could) not allow us the access we needed to do the things we wanted. Now this has changed. IPSC has its own server, administered by Ian Fachie (webmaster extraordinaire), and this opens up a whole new range of possibilities I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone the very best Season's Greetings and may the New Year be filled with health, joy, new beginnings, and a great new shooting year. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PREVIEW "Coming up soon..." ------------------- - IPSC Hall of Fame - Columbus Cup News - European Shotgun Championship - Pan-American Championship - and much more You're in the loop...
