There has been a demand for a Match Director Training Class. There are always matches looking for Match directors and they usually just need someone to coordinate things. This class will cover local and regional planning of several kinds of matches. Everything from figuring out how many people to ask to help in a local match, to advanced planning of regional matches. Instruction will be by Vince Sargentini, an NROI certified CRO and past Match director of the Golden Bullet, California Action Shotgun challenge, and other local matches.

The fee for this class is $40 It will include any worksheets, rental of the facility and all related expenses on the day of the class It will combine class instruction and assitance in putting together a local Richmond Pistol match. This class can be taken by anyone who wishes assistance in putting on a local match or volunteering to run a larger competition. If you are a member of the Richmond Rod & Gun Club and are a Richmond RO, the class fee is likely to be waived/picked up by the Richmond Hot Shots. At this time, the class has a limit of about 30 people, give/take.
