2012 MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup champions appear on giant flags thanks to sponsor Action Target
Fairfax, Virginia - Last year's MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup winners are going to have a little more to brag about when the 2013 match starts next week.
Thanks to sponsor Action Target, the winner of each major category in 2012 now has a giant, 15-foot banner with their photo and winning score. These banners will be on display throughout Columbia, Missouri's Green Valley Rifle & Pistol Club to remind other shooters who they're going up against . . . and the returning champions of the expectations they're pressured to meet.
It's a tough feat to win year after year. Maybe one day your face will be up there, holding one of the silver cup trophies above your head.
Whether you're all prepared to take part in one of the NRA's most exciting championships, or are waiting until next year, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the program. You don't want to be caught off guard by a tournament rule. The only surprise you should expect is when you see your name at the top of the leaderboard.
We're only four days away from the official start to the 35th Annual Bianchi Cup. NRA staff and volunteers are already busy hammering away at the range to make sure it's good and ready. The party is about to begin, make sure you don't miss out.
