The 2017 National Championship will be the premiere for International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) shooting in Canada during 2017. This competition is also weeks prior to the 2017 IPSC World Shoot to be held in France. Our National Championship event will provide competitors and officials an opportunity to test their skills and preparedness at a major Level III competition prior to the World shoot.
The 2017 IPSC Canada National Championship will be held at the Buffalo Target Shooters Association (BTSA) ranges within the Alberta Provincial Rifle Association complex about 30 minutes west of the city of Calgary. The BTSA ranges are located in the foothills between the city of Calgary and Banff National Park, and are surrounded by hills covered in evergreen forest.
The match will be sanctioned by the IPSC as a Level III competition. There will be 16 stages, with a minimum round count of 290 rounds or higher. This will be a 3-day event. Each competitor will shoot for 2 half-days and work one full day. The shooting and work schedules will be posted one month before the event.
The organizers are planning a diverse and comprehensive skill testing championship. Each of the challenging stage designs will test the competitor’s shooting ability and gun handling skills. In addition to determining the 2017 IPSC Canada National Champions, this match will show who is truly ready for the upcoming 2017 World Shoot.
As 2017 is the 150th anniversary of the founding of Canada, our match will celebrate some the events that have happened in Canada in the last 150 years. Each stage will be a little reminder of these interesting bits of our Canadian history. Enjoy a little bit of historical review of the initial 150 years of Canada while participating in this National Championship.
The year 2017 is also the 40th year of IPSC shooting and championships in Canada. The IPSC National Championships have been held all the way across Canada, and BTSA is pleased to be hosting the 40th Anniversary of IPSC in Canada.
