Default Golden Bullet USPSA match info/registration?

The Golden Bullet is scheduled for three months from now in Sacramento, but I can't seem to find info on match details or how to register. Anyone know if there is a website with this info?

NCPS is putting it on... 3 months earlier than normal.

Shoot one of these guys an email and see what's up.

This is a response I got to my email to the match director:

Quote:
Look for details on or about Feb 5 on actionpistol.org and calguns.org. If you have problems downloading, shoot me an email and I'll send you the entry form, etc.

Look forward to seeing you at the match. Submit early. From the number of emails I've received, we should sell out quickly.

Note, too, that if you're a certified RO you can reduce your entry fee cost. We're reimbursing $40 for each of the 3 sessions worked. Work all three and you get your $120 entry fee returned.

Hmm, could have sworn I posted something about this.. but now I can't find the thread.. strange.. It's not that it is 3 months early, it is just that the match is at the Folsom Shooting center and a July match would be swelteringly hot.. they started having their matches in April several years back after a June match had temps in the low 110's.. it is easier to have a match there when it is cooler than when you swelter in the heat.

It will likely return to Richmond next year in June or July.. since July in Richmond is easily 30 degrees cooler than Ione in July. I am not the MD this year..

Shot the match today. Very fun.

Not a very technical match (no weak hand, prone, sitting, kneeling, etc.), but a LOT of run-and-gun, high round-count stages. Very satisfying to the trigger puller in you.

Well, the gbc generally is not a match where you need work on the basics.. If you want to do that, there are several matches to work on that.. The idea is to get everyone through in a timely manner and have enough challenging stages that you come away with having a good time.. Stage 1 was easily a level III type championship stage being very busy and having a few different ways to shoot it depending on division.

Stage 7, while short, had potential for a very fast victory or as most saw it, a very quick crash and burn. The Sac Valley crew did a very good job (with a few oopsies) in pulling it off. Most people were done by about 4:15-4:30 pm.. on Sat.. (Sun yet to come).

I'm not complaining, just stating a fact. I was surprised that there weren't any real difficult shots or props (i.e. ports at knee level, prone, Texas star, etc.). I don't consider those the basics.

But I'm happy as a clam with what they offered. It was straight-forward hoser central, which is pure, unadulterated fun.
