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!
