NRA Spring Fling Set for April 16 & 17
The 2011 Spring Fling/Ken Quandahl Smallbore Rifle Memorial will be contested April 16-17, 2011, at the NRA Headquarters Indoor Range in Fairfax, Virginia.
Part of the NRA's Competitive Shooting Division, this tournament is a smallbore rifle/light rifle program.
The Spring Fling is fired indoors at 50 yards, three positions, using any sights – an excellent event to get prepared for the outdoor season. The course of fire is forty shots in each of the prone, standing, and kneeling positions fired on the NRA conventional A-23 target. There is also a two-person “paper” team match using the scores from the individual championship to compute team scores.
Three relays are scheduled per day, starting at 8:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Registration for the Spring Fling is on a first-come, first-served basis. Only 90 total competitors will be able to compete due to range limitations. Call 703-267-1475 to register for the Spring Fling and to request a tournament program.
