Registration Procedure Announced For 2014 Smith & Wesson Indoor Nationals

by Editor 5. December 2013 08:40
Subscribe to Feed

The Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championship is one of the most popular shooting matches in the country, selling out last year in a matter of just minutes. This week the early registration process was announced for the 2014 championship match. Online registration based on priority points will begin at 1:00pm EST and continue throughout the day on Saturday, December 7. General registration will open at 6:00pm EST that same day.

 

 

The following is the announcement that was distributed via email this weekend:

2014 Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championship
February 20-22, 2013

REGISTRATION PROCEDURE, PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING:

As a shooter in at least one of the last 5 years, you are entitled to register early. General registration opens at 6:00pm EST on December 7, 2013.

Priority registration opens on December 7, 2012 as follows:

5 year priority 1:00pm
4 year priority 2:00pm
3 year priority 3:00pm
2 year priority 4:00pm
1 year priority 5:00pm

As a prior competitor over the last five years you are already in the database. You can check your priority, and therefore, your registration time at www.MatchReg.com/SW/reg/priority.htm (please contact me if there are any errors or questions).

You can go to www.MatchReg.com/SW/reg/ at any time to complete your personal info, class, division etc. You enter your IDPA member number EXACTLY as it is listed on the priority list, on the left side of the page. Enter the password “2014match” (without the “) (you should change the password to keep others from changing your data). Complete or correct any info there and click the save “shooter button”.

At any time AFTER your priority registration time begins, you can log back in, click on the “My Squad” link and put yourself into a squad. It is critically important that you exit the program by clicking on the “return to shooter home” link, then exiting the program. Otherwise your squad choice will not be saved and you will lose your slot in the match.

If you keep the squad page open, it may appear that there are slots open when they have been filled. This is because your data does not save until you exit the record. This match fills within minutes; you could lose your slot by not choosing quickly, then exiting the program. You can monitor the squads with this link.

The squad info is date and time stamped. If you choose your squad before your priority time, you will be deleted from the squad (without notice) and may choose from any remaining slots (if available).

You should then IMMEDIATELY mail a check in the amount of $175.00 USD, payable to Smith & Wesson to:

Mike Critser
21 Williams Road
Trumbull, CT 06611

When I receive your check, you will see a “paid” next to your name in the squad list. If I do not receive your check within 14 days, you will be deleted from the match without notice.
