There will be side matches and additional raffles for firearms for the competitors.

Thursday evening, we are hosting a Shooters Reception at the Hampton Inn which is next door to the Courtyard Marriott (match hotel). We would like to have a head count on the number of competitors and their guests who plan to attend so we have your shooter packets to pick up at the reception. Please RSVP. The event is catered by Salumeria104 who’s award winning trattoria is located in Miami’s Midtown Design District. We are fortunate to have the Master Chef and Owner as part of our match staff.

 The Florida State Match has a tradition of collaboration and that is a big part of what makes Florida a destination match for the many members who travel great distances to be a part of it.

Miami is a great destination and we have the support of the local Chambers and media to assist you with your vacation plans. You will be minutes away from South Beach, Key Largo, the Florida Everglades and lastly, there is no other place in IDPA where you can compete at GROUND ZERO. We will be located between Homestead Air Force Base (free air shows), Turkey Point Nuclear power station, Biscayne National Park & Everglades National Park in an area that is rich in both culture & history.

We hope that you will make plans to join us for this event
