Universal Coin & Bullion returned to the Bianchi Cup for the second year as the Event Sponsor of the Practical Event. The UCB crew flew in from Texas to set up a tent near the Practical Event and talk to shooters and spectators.
“We’re glad to be a part of the Bianchi Cup and this year we’re giving the winner of the Bianchi Cup a custom Nighthawk Centennial Edition 1911 with two 1911 rare gold Indian coins embedded in the grips,” said Paul Stein, Vice President of Marketing.
Even though only one person can walk away with the incredible pistol, UCB is holding a prize drawing in their tent where 12 lucky people will win a set of wildlife coins from the Canadian Mint. These coins were just released and are made of .9999 pure silver.
Universal Coin & Bullion is also a generous sponsor for the National Pistol Championships at Camp Perry, but Bianchi Cup and world of action pistol shooting is something that the company is passionate about.
“It’s great to be involved in an event that brings competitors from all over the world and that challenges their abilities and skills with a different types of pistols, from 1911s to race guns built for speed,” said Stein.
“We also like the idea of challenging other companies to get involved as sponsors in the world of competitive shooting to help introduce more people to a sport where all types of people can compete equally,” Stein added.
Stein also tells us that in addition to returning as a sponsor in 2012, he will also be competing, most likely in the Open Class.
If you’re in the area or here at the range with us, make sure to stop by the UCB tent near the Practical Event and thank them for their support of the Bianchi Cup and the competitive shooting sports. And don’t forget to enter the drawing – or just stop by and say hello.
