From USPSA Press release:
SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. — The 2010 pistol shooting championship season kicks off with the U.S. Practical Shooting Association’s (USPSA) Area 6 Pistol Championship and once again Georgia-based firearms maker Glock has been named the overall match sponsor. The Area 6 region includes the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
This marks the 4th year that Glock, whose pistols are popular with many competing in the Production and Limited-10 divisions, will be the main sponsor of the match.
“Glock has had a tremendous impact on the shooting sports and not just through its generous support of matches like ours,” said Charles Bond, USPSA Area 6 director. “Through the years GSSF, the Glock Sport Shooting Foundation, has served as the unofficial feeder program for Practical Shooting getting tens of thousands of shooters into the shooting sports and ultimately into competitions like the Area 6 Championship.”
The Area 6 Championship will take place April 16 through 18 at the South River Gun Club in Covington, Ga. Upwards of 325 shooters representing Area 6 and 20 other states are expected to attend including Team Glock members Dave Sevigny, Jessie Abbate and Randi Rogers. International shooters from Columbia and Jamaica are also expected to compete.
This match basically takes place in Glock’s backyard, and they definitely bring their “A-game” for amounts to a home game match.
