During the AGM there was some discussion regarding additional ranges in the Northern Region. Canadian Historical Arms Society (CHAS) which is approx 70 kms West of Edmonton. They run a couple leagues and according to their website are willing to consider additional league submission requests. Being new to both ISPC Alberta and CHAS I didn't want to go to the executive and ask about IPSC matches if it is something that has already been submitted by someone else here.
They do run a 3 gun league, so I am assuming the range would be suitable for our CoF, but I thought I would ask here before approaching anyone at the range to make sure I am not repeating steps someone else has already taken.
I met with Steve E. (President) and Andrew B. (VP) of CHAS earlier this year to discuss running both Black Badge classes and sanctioned IPSC AB matches at Genesee, their home range. The range is suitable to run qualifiers (similar in scale and layout to the range in Bonnyville).
IPSC AB's 2018 outdoor schedule was already set prior to that meeting so we agreed to talk again later this year as IPSC AB's BOD starts the scheduling process for match dates in calendar 2019. Additionally, my understanding is that CHAS has plans to do some additional earthworks through the end of this year which may enhance Genesee's utility for what we do.
Good call on your part, and we're on it on this end...!
