The RMR will be a sanctioned Tier 4 match with 13 stages. All official IDPA divisions and classes will be recognized. The match will be worth 3 National Match points. The match fee includes snacks during the match days and a BBQ dinner at the Awards Banquet. Additional non-shooting guests may attend the Awards Banquet on Sunday evening for an additional charge of $10 each to be paid at the door.

The RMR is half of the larger event that we are calling, “The 3rd Rock Regional”. The other half of the 3rd Rock will be the Colorado State Championship (CSC), an additional Tier 4 match, worth 3 National Match points, with 13 stages. The round counts are 195 for the RMR and 214 for the CSC. 409 rounds total. We recommend you bring 500 rounds.

Both matches are included for the $270 fee. When you register for the RMR, you will be registered for the CSC at no charge. This WILL NOT happen immediately. It should happen in the first quarter of 2024 when the majority of shooters are registered in the RMR and the squads are set. You will receive a separate email when CSC registration has been completed. If you want to shoot in a different division in the CSC, you’ll change it on your Practiscore CSC registration page. The RMR and the CSC will run concurrently. You’ll shoot the RMR on one day, and the CSC on the other day depending on your squad. Both matches finish on Sunday May 26.

** PCC Division Capacity will be 15 rounds **

Currently the staff is full, but we are accepting backup applications. There always seems to be attrition. If you have not been selected for staff when the main match opens, you should complete a regular competitor registration. If you have paid for the match, and then selected for Staff, we will refund your match fee. If you are a CSO or SO and would like to work the match, please apply.
For SOs whose home is greater than 50 miles from Cameo, we offer a travel expense reimbursement of $50 per day, capped at $200. To apply, copy and paste the link in your browser.



The Staff Match will be Thursday and Friday, May 23 and 24. The Main Match will be Saturday and Sunday, May 25 and 26.

Are you interested in shooting with Staff on Thurs & Fri? If so, complete our application. Copy and paste this link in your browser: https://actionpistolgroup.com/3rd-rock-regional-staff-match-application/
The application is open now. Match Staff will contact you about squadding and payment.

Due to the unique nature of this event, squadding takes a lot of coordination. Staff squads will be organized by the match directors. Main match competitors will be allowed to squad themselves in the RMR. You will be shooting with the same squad mates in the CSC.

The Cameo Shooting and Education Complex (CSEC) is located 15 minutes East of the Grand Junction Airport (GJT) just off of Interstate 70. For more information about CSEC, check out the website https://cameosec.org
