Remington joins National Rifle Association in presenting annual World Series of Shooting Sports
Fairfax, Virginia - This year's National Rifle Association National Rifle & Pistol Matches will be presented by Remington. Held for over a century at Camp Perry, Ohio, the matches have come to be known as America’s “World Series of Shooting Sports.”
“Remington has been a longtime supporter of the National Matches and we are elated to be working with one of the finest names in the firearms industry,” said Dennis Willing, Director of NRA’s Competitive Shooting Division. “We welcome and appreciate their increased involvement as title sponsor of the National Matches and the opportunity to make our events bigger and better than ever.”
Camp Perry, which has traditionally hosted five championships, will introduce a new, sixth, phase during this year's Remington/NRA National Matches - Mid-Range High Power. Held alongside the High Power Championships, Mid-Range High Power will be shot in the style of F-Class, allowing competitors to use scope sights and artificial support (e.g. bipods and slings). A tradition every serious shooter tries to make at least once, Camp Perry's competitors represent a vast array of experience levels, including novice shooters, Olympic medalists, law enforcement officers, military personnel, and international competitors.
"Remington has been part of the shooting tradition in America for nearly 200 years and we strongly believe in promoting participation in shooting sports programs,” said Ken Roxburgh, Captain of Team Remington. “We’re honored to be named the title sponsor of the 2013 National Matches at Camp Perry.”
As in years past, NRAblog will be on the ground at Camp Perry this summer to cover the Remington/NRA National Rifle & Pistol Matches as returning champions attempt to defend their coveted trophies.
