Points for the 2019 PCC Nationals and the World Championship
IDPA HQ has had multiple questions regarding match points for the IDPA PCC US National Championship and the 2019 IDPA World Championship. We are not requiring different sets of points for the 2019 PCC National Championship and the 2019 World Championship. Points are calculated from May 31, 2018 to May 31, 2019. If a match starts on May 31, 2019 and ends June 1, 2019, you will still receive the points for that match. The points that you earn for shooting at a sanctioned match apply to all divisions. You do not have to finish the match in order to receive the credit for your match points. If you show up, you receive the points for that Tier.
We are looking forward to seeing you Oct. 22-26, 2019 at CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park!

2019 IDPA World Championship and PCC Nationals
The 2019 IDPA World Championship has been scheduled for Oct. 23-26, 2019. This third World Championship will be held at the Civilian Marksmanship Program Range in Talladega, Alabama, USA. "I am very excited about this event," Executive Director Joyce Wilson said. "For the first time we will be including all of the IDPA divisions in one week, by including Carry Optics into the World Championship and hosting a separate National level match for PCC." Match Director Rick Lund, along with Assistant Match Directors Brian Ehrler and Dede and Nicky Carter, will host the Pistol Caliber Carbine Nationals Oct. 22 so that competitors may elect to shoot both PCC and pistol divisions. Watch the IDPA website, the official IDPA Facebook page, and the Tactical Brief for more information.

This week, IDPA will be releasing an updated version of Appendix C for Carry Optics for immediate use by our membership. This new release adopts the classifier brackets found for Enhanced Service Pistol as the brackets for Carry Optics. By finalizing the classifiers for this division, it becomes easier for clubs to recognize this growing division for their matches at every level of our sport.
Carry Optics has become a popular division for many of our members and we are responding to this enthusiasm by finalizing the outstanding issues found in the provisional rules. We are also going to recognize Carry Optics at next year’s World Championship match being held again in Talladega the week of October 21st through the 26th. Classifier scores will be accepted into the system.
Members are encouraged to contact their Area Coordinator if they have any questions concerning this change. We hope you will enjoy the changes. See you at the range.

IDPA is moving
The IDPA office will close Friday, Oct. 26 and will reopen Monday, Nov. 5 so that we can move to our new headquarters in Texas. Our former headquarters located in Berryville, AR, will be closing effective today, 10/26/2018. The decision to move was made to better serve the needs of our growing membership which includes increased resources and advanced technology aimed at delivering exceptional value and support to our members.
During our office closure please contact your Area Coordinators (ACs) or International Points of Contacts (IPOCs) if you need immediate assistance. As always, they are your first contact for rules questions. If you are unsure who your AC or IPOC is, you can find that information on the IDPA website.
Moving an organization is no small feat and we hope you will be patient with us as we settle into our new digs. Growing pains for IDPA is a wonderful problem to have and we thank you for your continued support.
