First Club Champion Challenge for Tropical Sport Shooting Association takes place in Florida
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
- An NRA Club Champion Challenge took place this month at the Tropical Sport Shooting Association (TSSA) in Ft. Lauderdale
. Known as south Florida’s largest defensive shooting club, the competition took place at the Markham Park Target Range in Weston, Florida.
"It's a fun and exciting way for shooters to find out who's the best shot in the club," said NRA Competitive Shooting's John Parker. "The Club Champion Challenge includes all ages, skill levels and best of all ... the awards are provided by the NRA."
Rick Lund, TSSA's Chief RSO, NRA Certified Instructor, Stats Guru and Webmaster provided us with the following report:
On the morning of November 17, the Tropical Sport Shooting Association arrived at the Markham Park Target Range for our first NRA Club Champion Challenge.
South Florida presented us with a near picture perfect day for the 22 members who successfully completed our first NRA Club Championship Challenge. The format required firing from static positions, so some of us had to practice getting into those positions while manipulating our firearms on the clock.
Everyone who participated (and we had a number of people who came out early but did not finish the match) proved to be great competitors. They even pitched in to help helped behind the scene on a variety of stages to keep things moving.
Competitors shot three stages of Pistol, Rifle-Carbine and Tactical Shotgun, some with multiple strings which were scored on NRA B-16 Targets or steel depending on the stage.
The overall winner, Wayne Dayberry, received a Montana Silversmiths belt buckle emblazoned with the NRA logo. Top finishers Ryan Rodriguez (Top Junior), Craig Wood (3rd place) and Jose Garcia (2nd place and Top Senior) were awarded with Club Champion Challenge medals provided by the NRA.
Thanks Rick, hope everyone had a great time at the match!
