April’s Action Shooting International match will be a dedicated fundraiser for fallen Pierce County Sheriff’s Deputy Cooper Dyson. Deputy Dyson was killed in his patrol vehicle responding to a Help-the-Officer call on December 21. He leaves behind a grieving family. Deputy Dyson had two years into the law enforcement and firefighters pension fund (aka LEOFF 2) and had not been vested in it. This meant his survivors would not be receiving his pension, just a lump sum of his contributions. At that match, we will be promoting drawing for one of two Polymer80 kits, generously donated by Polymer80. The drawing will be held after the match. Contact Brian Buller or Joey Russo for additional information on getting tickets (Brian: firstname.lastname@example.org or Joey: email@example.com For more information on Polymer80 products check out their website: https://www.polymer80.com
Tacoma /Pierce County’s Crimestoppers webpage has set up a Legacy Fund for donations for Deputy Dyson: www.tpcrimestoppers.com. Donations can be made to the 'Deputy Cooper Dyson Legacy Fund' via PayPal by clicking on the orange "DONATE" button at the top of the page, or by visiting any TAPCO Credit Union location.
The 4th Annual Vision X Night Match Classic, held at the Paul Bunyan Rifle and Sportsman’s Club, raised over $20,000 for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots Foundation. The proceeds were double the amount from last year’s competition, which raised $10,705 in 2018. The Vision X Night Match is an outlaw UML scoring format shooting competition. This year featured Pistol/Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) divisions, which spanned three days with six-night stages and six-day stages, with a total of twelve stages.
With spectators and competitors, this has been the largest Vision X Night Match Classic yet, featuring a wide range of competitors from first-time shooters to experienced veterans. “We had overwhelming support from sponsors, staff, and competitors, which drove this donation to its highest yet,” said Tim Novasky, Match Director. There were 43 sponsors this year with 147 competitors, 51 more competitors than last year.
“Throughout the weekend I had people nonstop coming up to me, telling me how much fun they were having, and thanking me for being part of the staff that put the event on. The match would have never been this big without our sponsors, our vendors, and the shooters. Everyone really fit together like the pieces of a puzzle to make this event a success.”
– Jeff Snope, Co-Founder
The night match included vendor booths, a demo bay, a side match, and a BBQ for the range of competitors and spectators. Nick Irwin, of Vision X lighting, and Jeff Snope, of Northwest Safe, co-founded the competition for charity in 2016. Thank you to the other sponsors that helped in making this year’s night match an enormous success! Check them out below!
