No. The Regional Director’s slot is not transferable. It can only be used by the Regional Director or by his official delegate representing him at the IPSC Assembly when the Regional Director is personally unable to attend.

My friends and I are sponsored by a company. Can we register a team under their name?

No. At Level IV and higher IPSC competitions, teams can only be registered under the name of the Region. However, subject to the approval of your Regional Director, you might be permitted to wear shirts or logos supplied by your sponsor.

The Shooting Range is located inside the Sports Authority of Thailand’s Regional Training Center. You can Google for “New THPSA Shooting Range” (or GPS coordinate 12.8485604,101.0356645).

The Range is located in a outer area from the City. There are not many places to eat and stay near the range. Our recommendation for competitors is to stay in the Pattaya area where there are many options to choose for facilities during the match.
