The Scholastic Pistol Program has made updates to its Virtual Match Series, which is designed to allow teams to compete without having to travel to other ranges.
Beginning June 1, 2015, there will be a special monthly random draw with a prize of a $1,000 donation to a team’s MidwayUSA Foundation endowment account. This special event will run through December 2015 and is open to any team or squad that participates in the Virtual E-Postal Match Series in that month. To be eligible for the random draw prize, a team only has to submit one (1) score for that month.
National Virtual Championships
In addition to the monthly random drawing, these scores are also entered into the SPP Virtual Match Championships. We will be offering endowment donations as placement awards.
To be eligible for Virtual Match Series Championships, a team or squad must register at least four (4) squad scores during the season. To compete in this series, the team or squad must shoot the entire course of fire and submit their scores for registration. Just like any live match, a team/squad must have four individuals competing. The current Virtual E-Postal Series season began September 1, 2014 and has been extended to run through December 15, 2015.
This year we will be using the Lewis Class system during the Virtual Match Series Championships. There will be two (2) Lewis classes in each division, and endowment money will be given to first, second, and third places in each class. In Class A, the donations will be $1,250 for first, $1,000 for second, and $750 for third. In Class B, the donations for first through third will be $1,000, $750, and $500, respectively.
Eligibility for SPP Virtual E-Postal Match Series
Any team or squad that is fully registered in the Scholastic Pistol Program, which includes being registered in the SHOT system, is eligible and encouraged to compete in this series. Teams must also have an endowment account with the MidwayUSA Foundation. If you don’t have an endowment account, it’s easy to start an account here.
Score sheets can be downloaded from the website. Coaches must register each score by submitting a scanned copy of the completed SPP score sheets to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost of registration is $5 per squad (of four) per match score.
Checks and score sheets can be sent to: SPP, 288 Crisswell Road, Butler, PA 16002.
