New Bianchi Cup preview video highlights the people making this year's tournament possible
Fairfax, Virginia - We have another MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup preview with Tom and Damien from the NRA's Pistol Department.
In this episode, the two break down the 35th annual tournament's title and Platinum Sponsors. Aside from MidwayUSA, which you probably picked up on in the name, this year's Platinum Sponsors are the generous industry folks who make the championships' events possible.
Joyce Rubino, Larry and Brenda Potterfield, Junior Champion Tiffany Piper, Metallic Champion Robert Vadasz, Bianchi Cup Champion Doug Koenig, Women's Champion Julie Golob, Senior Champion Adam Lennart and Production Champion Vance Schmid.
In the four events the Bianchi Cup is comprised of we have:
- Barricade Event - Safariland, one of the longest-running sponsors with 35 years of support.
- Moving Target Event - Sig Sauer, another great longtime sponsor.
- Practical Event - Blade Tech, one of the newer sponsors at the championships, currently in their second year.
- Falling Plate Event - FNH USA, a rookie among the Platinum Sponsors but whose shooters have competed in the tournament for years.
The final Platinum Sponsor is Colt, another one of the original Bianchi Cup sponsors. John Bianchi, the man himself, has said "If it were not for Colt Firearms, the Bianchi Cup would not exist." Colt is heading up the Saturday Colt Speed Event and Celebrity Pro-Am Event.
The Bianchi Cup is right around the corner. Get ready.
