    Marysville Rifle Club is hosting an "IPSC 101" class 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 8, 10AM to 5PM with a lunch break. Lunch/drinks
    provided) followed by personalized coaching through your first practical
    shooting match to be held the following Sunday at MRC (Sunday May 16,
    10AM to 3PM). Barring any severe safety infractions (DQ's) Sunday, the
    students will be given their safety check cards. The cost of the class

    At this time...we only have 3 openings remaining for this class...so if you (or someone you know) is interested....act quick. When the class fills, I will start putting people on a "standby" list in the event that someone drops out.
