The IDPANL Zombie Apocalypse VII Multi-Gun Shoot was held on Saturday, 11 August 2018 and few such events have run so smoothly as this one seemed to. The weather was once again excellent and a total of 21 shooters attended, including folks from other provincial gun clubs such as the Discovery Shooting Club in Elliston and the Northwest Arm Rod & Gun Club in Winterland. Many thanks to those guys for showing repeated interest in the event!

First, the match results. To recap, there were four elaborate stages or courses of fire which included a mix of target types (paper, steel and frangible) and presentations (disappearing, pop-up, etc.) to be engaged by a mix of firearms – pistol, shotgun, and close quarters battle rifle.

Stage 1 (Range C): Fired Up (a 32 round shotgun and pistol stage)

Stage 2 (Range A): Fortress (a 29 round pistol stage)

Stage 3 (Range A): Out of Gas (a 30 round pistol stage)

Stage 4 (Range B): Desperate Measures (a 48 round CQB rifle, shotgun and pistol stage)

Best scores are in red. Points down in [x] square brackets.

This year the St. John’s Rod & Gun Club asked IDPANL to present the Tony Mackey Memorial Award as part of the IDPANL Zombie Shoot event, and it was our pleasure to do so. It was decided that the best combined score in the two pistol stages, both of which took place on Range A (named after Tony), would merit the award. As you can see below, the scores were extremely close!

S.S. – combined score 94.87

B.L. – combined score 98.54

S.P. – combined score 98.65

This year the Tony Mackey Memorial Award goes to S.S.. There is a $50 gift card from Complete Gun Repair associated with this award. Congratulations!

In keeping with the spirit of IDPA, prizes were drawn randomly and awarded such that all participants had an equal chance of walking away with a prize. The prizes included complementary one year memberships for the St. John’s Rod & Gun Club (SJRGC) and IDPANL; IDPANL swag (mugs and t-shirts); and a large variety of small prizes from Cabela’s. Congrats to the winners!

The match ran very smoothly, thanks in large part to the core group of volunteers who tested stages, helped to set up on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Many thanks to all of the folks who played a role – no matter how small – in helping to make it a successful and fun event, whether it was in preparing lunch, helping set up or tear down the stages, or just doing your part to patch targets and re-set steel and props. A special thanks to the hard working safety officers and scorekeepers who went above and beyond – including having to run the entire course many times over – to ensure that those in attendance got through in an efficient, safe and enjoyable manner.

Thank you for attending and we hope you enjoyed it. We continue to have regularly scheduled IDPA matches and side events like this one throughout the year and we encourage potential new members to try the sport.
