Due to the change in venue for the former 4 Division Nationals, new staff applications have been produced. NOTE: If you are on staff already and do not have any changes, i.e. will work both matches, then DO NOTHING. Do not apply again. If, however, you can only work one or the other, email me, Troy McManus, at [email protected], with the match your can work in the subject line and let me know. I will sort existing staff applications out. We will also provide the staff registration link to all accepted staff, but if you were in the match already, I believe Jake Martens has moved you. Please log in to Practiscore and check before emailing either one of us about your match entry. Here’s the link to the Nationals staff applications. Just log in to USPSA.org and select the match(es) you want to work. Carry Optics is overstaffed at present. More information will be provided to all accepted and standby applicants.
