The Northeast Regional Field Target Championship hosted by Crosman will feature participants from fourteen states and Canada competing July 12 and 13 on the company’s Bloomfield, NY campus.

“What began as a helpful gesture to a shooting club when they were no longer able to host the event has turned into the top open competition in the country for field target,” said Mark DeBoard, Shooting Services Manager for Crosman. “Technically it’s a regional competition but we draw participants from across the U.S. and we have international competitors as well.. This year we have them coming from as far as California and Colorado,” added DeBoard.
