MCJ, can you provide a link for those who don't know where is Gunsmoke?  Make it easy for us with feeble fingers!

It is GREAT to see MCJ and Flyin Shootist schedule this WB match at the Midwest Regional and I know this sounds petty, and I'm certainly NOT saying it in a mean way, but if your having a 10 stage Wild Bunch Match, WHY call it a "Side Match"?   Its a MATCH.   I think we need to get away from that "side match" phrase and start calling it a regular match.   Even if we have a three or four stage match at annual or other shoots, let's call it a Mini Match or something other than a side match.   "Side Match" just gives fuel to those that don't support Wild Bunch shoots.
Just my 2 cents.

What Back 40 said
Over the recent Memorial Day weekend we talked "Duel in the Desert" match management into having a WB event along with the CAS.  We called it an
"ADDITIONAL" event as the term side match doesn't do the discipline justice.  Just my thoughts!

Thanks for posting the link 40. I agree on naming the match but I am just an assistant at Gunsmoke
Hopefully if attendance is good it can progress into that in the future. Can't wait to see you there. (Did I really say that. LOL)

Back 40, I agree 100% a side match is fastest pocket pistol. A 10 stage or for that matter a 3 stage WB match is a match. I've seen the 3 stage matches around here billed as mini match. Good idea!
