Shooting Sports USA - December 2012 - 3

COMPETITOR'S CORNER
Congratulations to Team U.S.A. for its performance at the 8th World Action Pistol Championships in Germany. U.S.A. members and teams won every event except Individual Production Pistol and the Metallic Team trophy. As you may know, Doug Koenig won the overall World Championship, while Jessie Duff won the Women’s World Championship title. Now that I’m back to the “real world” I’ve begun reviewing what we do and how we do it. One of the things I’ve been reviewing is our product supply and their costs. In the past we have supplied a number of items free of charge to match sponsors and competitors, including registration cards, three different types of scorecards, etc. However, it has become very expensive to continue this practice and we must now place a nominal charge for some of these items. The charges are not intended to make a profit for the NRA but to help recover the costs associated with them. There is an initial cost to the NRA for the production of these items as well as additional costs for warehousing and shipping. These expenses have now driven the budget for those items into the red by more than twice the allotted amount. The items have been priced conservatively and they should not be a burden to any program that still uses them. Temporary score books will continue to be supplied free of charge. Our plans for future National Matches include improved score cards and an improved challenge system. We are hoping to post scores digitally, rather than on paper, and post them where scores can be viewed all night long. The worst case scenario is that we stay with paper but post scores in three places around the base, with challenge periods remaining open all night, except for the last day of shooting. The 2013 NRA Collegiate Rifle Club Championships and the NRA Collegiate Pistol Championships will again be held at Fort Benning, GA. The Pistol Championships will run March 10-15, and the Rifle Club Championships will be March 15-17. In order for collegiate competitors to qualify for these championships, they must compete in an NRA Intercollegiate Sectional, which take place January 12 through February 17, nationwide. In March 2012, the National Rifle Association approved the use of the Orion Scoring System for sanctioned NRA Indoor National Championships, State Championships, local Registered and Approved tournaments, and NRA Postals. The scoring system scans and scores air rifle, smallbore rifle and BB gun targets. Now clubs can use the Orion system with NRA Rules, saving time and additional personnel needed to conduct tournaments. For additional information, see: www.orionscoringsystem.com/orion/Home.aspx. NRA will once again be supporting the Daisy/NRA National BB Gun Championship to be held in Rogers, Arkansas, June 28-30, 2013. The Daisy/NRA National BB Gun Championship will be followed by the 2013 Daisy Air Rifle Championship Match to be held July 1-3, 2013. For more information see: www.ibbgcm.com. Members of the NRA Staff will be attending the annual SHOT Show next month where we will meet with various industry partners to obtain sponsorships for our shooting events. Please take a moment to thank these sponsors when the opportunity arises. Their names are printed in the results bulletins as well as at the many events we host.
