 Message passed on from PNZ:


I have managed to tentatively arrange for Ben Stoeger to come to NZ/Aus and do some IPSC training.
At this stage, the plan is for him to come across in June 2015 and we are hoping to arrange one of the major matches to coincide with his visit.
Depending on the numbers we are able to drum up at each club, we may be able to arrange for classes to be spread around, so if you're keen, convince your fellow club shooters and get a group of 10-12 people together.
Costs are difficult to peg at this stage, but indicative pricing will be between $500 and $600 per person. While this may seem expensive, bear in mind that you would not be paying much less than this if you trained with Ben in the US, let alone having to fly out there, pay for accommodation etc. This will exclude any range fees that may apply.
I will provide details around how the booking will work, but effectively your space will be confirmed on payment of a deposit with the balance being due shortly before Ben arrives. 
Some more info on Ben, for those who may not know him:
Ben Stoeger is a USPSA Production Grand Master, having numerous Section, Area, and National Championship wins. Ben is the current and three-time USPSA Production National Champion.
Ben also achieved 3rd Place Production Division finish at the 2014 IPSC World Championships
Time: Starts at 8 a.m. and will run until about 4 p.m. both days.
Ammo: Expect to shoot approximately 1000 rounds. Bring extra.
Class Limit: There is a class limit of 12 students.
The curriculum for the class will be as follows:
IPSC Techniques (this will consist mostly of specialized movement techniques)
Moving Targets
Stage Breakdown/Analysis
Practice Tips and Techniques
High Speed Accuracy
Preparation for Major Matches
+ anything people request to be added
The format of the class consists of one day of intensive work on technique. The first half day will cover IPSC fundamentals. 
The second half of the first day will cover more advanced IPSC techniques.
The second day will consist of a scored IPSC match. Ben will assist and critique each student on every stage in regards to technique. 
The second half of the day will be devoted to working on stage breakdown and improving stage times.
This class is geared towards anyone interested in shooting IPSC matches.

BOPSRA held a successful Semi Auto Championship over the weekend of 14th and 15th of September, with the short course being held at ASF and the longer range day being held at Blaymires. In a field of 24 shooters we had 9 visiting competitors from WSRA ASRA and Waikato Rifles SR clubs. Some great scores put in by all, with the BOPSRA representatives taking home the biggest haul, including both Service Class overall to Lindsay S and Open Class overall to Brad M. From a total of 26 first place awards on offer, BOPSRA secured 20.. well done.

Service Pistol (22/04/12)

A few weeks ago I built the wooden frame for service pistol targets and Syd and I shot a match which we were told was the March postal service match, however, it turned out that there was not to be a postal match in March and it would be held in April. So with a little more interest shown, I tacked together a steel frame and 5 of us gathered on Saturday morning to shoot the April service postal match.

A postal match is a national competition whereby any shooter wishing to compete can shoot at their home club and the results are sent in to the national section director. Score cards must be filled in and signed off, by two committee members. The idea is that, to make it more accessible to more shooters, the postal match is run over the nominated month, you have the whole month to shoot your match and get the results in. Not only does this save travel costs, but also the difficulties of travelling with pistols.
