100% chance of rain on a match with low registration. Makes sense.

Mike said he'd like to/will try to reschedule.

that is what they tried to do this weekened.  Saturday idpa and sunday ICORE.  IDPA and ICORE use different targets and have different rules, that will also require more table manipulation by the score keepers, if you are thinking to have two matches going on at the same time on the same day.

too bad.  I was slated to win this match.  I shot the fastest and all zeros for all stages in my head.

What they did was incorporate the Icore match, into the 22 match that was scheduled for that day. But by doing so, they neutered the 22 match from the type of match it usually is. No steel, nothing exciting, etc. The stage descriptions are from the Icore match that was planned in Oct. I don't see it as an Icore match or a 22 match.  :thumbsdown
I always looked foward to shooting the 22 match every December. But this time I think I may pass on this combined match. I'm very disappointed.  :(

I get your point.  But If the temps allowed, I might still shoot it as ICORE.  Still looks like a fun match

So far 6 revolver shooters registered

Between the weather and rescheduling for Saturday due to the same, this will likely not change much. 

It seems ICORE as a viable game is not bueno.  I think also that most people donít buy full size revolvers as their first gun choice.  Also compared to a full size Glock this tend to be expensive.  Add to that speed loaders , moonclips, clip loaders, belt holders etc

The way some of those shooting 22's have continuous jams, especially in the colder weather, you'll be waiting on them most of the time.

Watching slow shooters and people shooting those low power pop gun rounds that barely make any noise and have no recoil can be pretty boring. I hope the .22 shooters don't mind too much.

9 revolver shooters thus far

We may be what is left of USPSA revolver shooters in the island.
