For Immediate Release

2014 NRA National
Smallbore Rifle Championships Moving to Bristol, Indiana
FAIRFAX, Va. – For the third time in more than
100 years, the NRA National Smallbore Rifle Championships will not be held at
Camp Perry, OH. Instead, the 2014 championships will move three hours west to
the Chief Wa-Ke-De Range in Bristol, IN.
The Chief Wa-Ke-De Range is the current home of
the NRA National Metric Championships, which will combine with the Smallbore
Rifle Championships for a twelve day competition from July 14 to July 25.
Featuring a 100-point asphalt-covered firing line and plenty of protection from
wind, the range is ideal for smallbore rifle competition.
New next year will be the conversion of team
matches to the “paper match” style, wherein scores are compiled from the
existing individual match results. International Postal Team Matches such as
the Drew Cup and Randle Cup will remain separate events and will be shot
following the championships.
“While the NRA Smallbore Rifle Championships
will be at a new location in 2014, they are and will continue to be the
pinnacle of smallbore competition in the United States,” said Dennis Willing,
Director of NRA Competitive Shooting. “The Chief Wa-Ke-De Range is sure to
create new challenges and new opportunities to competitors accustomed to Camp
Perry’s firing line.”
The Smallbore Rifle Championship Tournament
Program will be posted March 3, 2014 and registration opens April 1, 2014.
Entry to the 2014 NRA National Smallbore Rifle Championships is limited to 300
competitors and the Metric Championships are limited to 200 competitors.
