    Marysville Rifle Club is hosting an "IPSC 101" class on May 7th/May 15th 2011 for any new shooter who presently doesn't have a USPSA Safety Check card or who isn't presently approved to shoot USPSA matches and is interested in this fast-paced style of practical shooting. Upon successful completion of this class, you'll be ready to compete in any local practical-shooting competition. The class will consist of roughly 7 hours of class/range work (Saturday, May 7th 10AM to 5PM with a lunch break. Lunch/drinks provided free) followed by personalized coaching through your first practical shooting match to be held the following Sunday at MRC (Sunday, May 15th 10AM to 3PM).
