SHOOTER’S NEWS You have probably heard by now that, in 2014, we are moving the NRA Smallbore Rifle Championships to Bristol, IN. This move is necessary to support the World Palma Rifle Championships scheduled to be held at Camp Perry in 2015, with a dress rehearsal in 2014. The 2014 and 2015 Smallbore Rifle Championships will be held at the Wa-Ke’-De Range in Bristol—the same site as the Metric Championships. Located three hours west of Camp Perry along the Indiana Toll Road (Interstate 80), the range features a 100-point asphalt, covered firing line that is protected from the wind by a large grove of trees. This range is ideal for smallbore rifle competition. The tentative dates are July 14-25, 2014 (including the Metric Championship) with enough range space for 300 competitors. We are planning two barbecues; one each for the Prone and Position Championships. The awards ceremonies are planned at the nearby Das Dutchman Essenhaus hotel and restaurant, with a seated, family-style dinner for the Conventional Championship awards ceremony. We expect to have the Championship Program published and available online by March 3, 2014, with registrations starting in April. We are currently working with the community to secure special rates for local lodging. Competitors who like to camp may make their own reservations at the KOA Campground just a mile from the range. There are also 20 RV hookups on the range property. For hotel accommodations, the Das Dutch Essenhaus is located five miles from the range in nearby Middlebury. There are about eight additional hotels and restaurants at exit 92, only 15 minutes from the range. The staff hotel will be the Baymont Inns and Suites in Elkhart, 10 minutes from the range. Limited, special rate rooms will be available at the Baymont. The Wa-Ke’-De Range in Bristol, IN. For more information, please contact H.Q.
