New winners and old take to the stage for NRA titles
Port Clinton, Ohio - A few hundred competitors, sponsors and NRA officials gathered at the Hough Theater last night for the 2014 NRA National Long Range High Power Rifle Championships. Some arrived to claim titles, others to congratulate their peers, it was a special night for all.
Led by Long Range Rifle Match Director Sherri Judd, the ceremony started 30 minutes behind the scheduled 8:00pm start time - another victim of yesterday's weather delay.
"I would like to take this moment to thank all our competitors, sponsors, and staff for a memorable championship," said Judd. "It was truly one to remember."
In addition to Gallagher's overall win, a number of additional champions arrived to receive their crown. That list included:
- High Junior Waylon Burbach
- High Senior Norman Crawford
- High Grand Senior James O'Connell
- High Service Rifle SFG Joel Micholick
- High Palma Rifle SGT Eric Smith
We'll roll out a full breakdown along with images from the awards ceremony later this week.
