Results-Zombie Apocalypse
Published Date: 2019-08-16 08:50:00

The eighth annual IDPANL Zombie Apocalypse Multi-Gun Shoot was held on Saturday, 10 August 2019.

The weather was once again excellent - it was hot! - and a total of 28 shooters attended, including participants 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 their repeated interest in our event!

There were four stages or courses of fire which included a variety of target types (paper, steel and frangible) and varying presentations (disappearing, pop-up, etc.) that were required to be engaged by a mix of firearms – including handgun, shotgun, and rifle.

The four stages, developed around a theme of popular zombie movies, were:

Stage 1 - The Winchester Plan (a 21 round shotgun and pistol stage)
Stage 2 - Don't Be a Hero (an 18 round pistol stage)
Stage 3 - Beware of Bathrooms (an 18 round pistol stage)
Stage 4 - Corpus Separatum (a 51 round rifle, shotgun and pistol stage)

Top scores overall
1 Scott Smith - 245.06
2 Adam Waterman - 280.47
3 Scott Pike - 294.33

In keeping with the spirit of IDPA, prizes were drawn on a random basis and awarded so that all participants had an equal chance of walking away with a prize. These prizes included complimentary one year memberships for the St. John’s Rod & Gun Club (SJRGC) and for IDPANL; raffle tickets for a Stag 10 rifle package, from the Labrador Trap & Skeet Club, and a large variety of small prizes. Congrats to the winners!

The match ran very well, thanks to the core group of volunteers who helped to set up on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, and more importantly, to act as staff for the event. Many thanks to all of the folks who played a role – no matter how small – in helping to make it a successful and enjoyable 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 were able to complete it 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 come out and try the sport.
