Ben Stoeger IPSC Training

Attention all IPSC Shooters!

I have managed to tentatively arrange for Ben Stoeger to come to NZ/Aus and do some IPSC training.

At this stage, the plan is for him to come across in June 2015 and we are hoping to arrange one of the major matches to coincide with his visit.

Depending on the numbers we are able to drum up at each club, we may be able to arrange for classes to be spread around, so if you're keen, convince your fellow club shooters and get a group of 10-12 people together.

Costs are difficult to peg at this stage, but indicative pricing will be between $500 and $600 per person. While this may seem expensive, bear in mind that you would not be paying much less than this if you trained with Ben in the US, let alone having to fly out there, pay for accommodation etc. This will exclude any range fees that may apply.

I will provide details around how the booking will work, but effectively your space will be confirmed on payment of a deposit with the balance being due shortly before Ben arrives. 

If you are keen to train with Ben, flick me an email on seandboss@gmail.com and I will add you to a list to keep you up to date with progress we make. If we are unable to drum up enough interest in getting Ben here, we may very well miss the opportunity, which would be a great loss. You can also send your interest to the PNZ Executive Officer at exec@pistolnz.org.nz

Regards

Sean
