Rec'd this today via e-mail. It's aways down the road yet, so better mark your calanders if you're interested.

Note: If you can forward this message to an email list of police or shooters in the New England area, please do so! Thanks.

The Police Officers Safety Association will be producing the second annual Isabella deBethencourt Memorial Cops4Kids Match Against Cancer at the Harvard Sportsman’s Club in Harvard, Massachusetts on Sunday, October 1, 2006.

All proceeds benefit the pediatric cancer research of the Jimmy Fund in memory of Heather and Michael deBethencourt’s infant daughter, Isabella, who died of cancer at 11 months of age a couple years ago.

This is a pistol match run like an IDPA match, but with a very different, more street-like, set of rules, targets, and scoring.

We need shooters and volunteers to help! The match is limited to 80 shooters. Last year’s match was a sellout, and we expect slots to go fast this year.

For more information and registration materials please visit the match website, www.posacops4kids.com.

Note: To give LE officers first opportunity, we are restricting registration until July 15, 2006 to active and retired police officers, and those that work with them (investigators, CSIs, etc.) as well as non law enforcement officers who shot last year's match. Anyone can sign up after July 15.

We have also increased the shooting fee this year, but have initiated a shooter sponsorship program, so that each shooter can cultivate people to sponsor him/her. There will be prizes for the top sponsor fund-raisers—see the website for details.

Set-up day will be Friday, Sept. 29, and shoot-thru/debug day Saturday, Sept. 30. All volunteers will have the opportunity to shoot the stages on Sept 30.

Shooters can register with the form by cutting and pasting the following link: www.posacops4kids.com/documents/C4KRegistrationForm.pdf

To volunteer, please contact Bruce Klinger, the aceboss of the volunteers at, at [email protected]

If you have a lead on cash sponsors or product donations, please contact Heather deBethencourt at [email protected] Other administrative issues and questions can be directed to Ralph Mroz, [email protected]

Thank you and we are looking forward to seeing you at the match!
