Fellow Shooters,

Here is the process for qualifying for the 2021 World Benchrest Team. There are a few things that each shooter needs to take care of to be eligible for the team:

1. Each shooter needs to declare their intention to enter the qualifying process by the end of February 2020. An email to rickpollock@shaw.ca registering their intention to qualify will be sufficient.
2. Each shooter needs to be a member of both BRSC and OFAH during the qualifying year and the competition year. This is per the World Team meeting in Calgary during the 2019 World Championship. Contact Carolyn Pollock at cpollock256@shaw.ca to become a BRSC member. To become a member of OFAH visit: https://www.ofah.org to register. Proof of membership in both organizations will be required.
3. During the competition season in 2020, shooters will need to email rickpollock@shaw.ca with evidence of their placings at various events to be added to the qualifying tally and roster of shooters. All sanctioned group shoots are eligible for points accumulation.
4. At the end of 2020 each shooter will be asked to confirm by email if they plan to attend the World Championships in Calgary and submit a $500 CDN deposit to the World Team to be used against the entry fee for the World Championship which is expected to be $400 USD.

Note: the qualifying ranking will be in accordance to the previous years format with your rank based upon how many points you have accumulated in the qualifying year. Points are awarded based upon how many shooters you placed above in your (6) best Grand Aggregates (LV, HV, SP) during 2020. There will be a cap of available points in each Grand Aggregate based upon the total # of shooters entered in the 2020 Cactus Classic.

Team selection will be based on this final ranking of accumulated points, and receipt of entry fee deposit, with the final selection taking place no later than December 31st, 2020.

Centerfire Discussions / Sheldon Charron - Filmaker BR Documentary
« on: September 23, 2019, 12:03:43 PM »
Shooters,

We all know BR is perhaps one of the greatest shooting sports, and that everyone thinks they know about, but few understand the game outside of the current competitors. Sheldon has been active in the shooting sports for years and is also active in the filmaking world. Sheldon wants to get the word out about our game, having recently participated in a few shoots, he sees that there is a great story to be told, but it is not getting out to the world.

He has asked for our support in this project, in whatever amount you can spare to get this project off the ground. Check out the go fund me link:

https://www.gofundme.com/f/benchrest-documentary

I will be contributing, and I encourage everyone to contribute in a corporate, club or sanctioning body capacity. The future of the sport could use some assistance and this is but one way to get the word out.

Thanks for considering this.

Rick

Reminder to everyone our last BRSC sanctioned shoot at Rosebud, will be the Alberta Provincials on Sept 7/8. We will shoot LV 100 Saturday morning and HV 100 Saturday afternoon. We will rotate benches Saturday at the end of the day, then shoot HV 200 Sunday morning and LV 200 Sunday afternoon.

Those planning to camp at the range, or those needing access on the Friday practice day need to contact me for arrangements.

If you haven't already spoken to me, please let me know if you are planning to come so we can be sure to have the correct amount of helpers.

Thanks

Need your help to take this viral - PLEASE SHARE.
The government wants to hear a diversity of views on how to reduce violent crime in Canada and whether a BAN ON HANDGUNS AND ASSAULT WEAPONS would be the best way to address the problem. Public consultation is open until November 10.
Police forces are implying that illegal 'illicit' firearms are coming from legal owners through theft or sales, hence the need to ban legal ownership of firearms in Canada.

Lots of shooters have been turning in great results with HWP barrels, here are some of the higher finishes I am aware of:

2017
At the World Championships in New Zealand all of Canada 1 team used HWP barrels and finished 5th overall in the World in the 2-Gun Championship. Hugh Williamson was 6th in the World in the individual results.

2018
Peter Smith was 2nd in the HV 100 at the IBS National Championships with a .1776" Aggregate

Rob MacLennan was 3rd in the HV 200 at the NBRSA National Championship with a .1939" Aggregate

Rick Pollock was 2nd in the Sporter 100 at the NBRSA National Championships with a .1670" Aggregate.

Hugh Williamson was 1st in the HV Grand Aggegate at the NBRSA National Championships with a .1798" Grand Aggregate. Earning 2 Hall of Fame Points for this!

Hugh Williamson was 2nd in the 3-Gun at the NBRSA Nationals with a .2073" Aggregate, missing first place in the 3 Gun by only .007"!

Hugh Williamson was 1st in the HV 100 at the IBS Nationals with .1732" Aggregate. Earning a Hall of Fame Point for this.

Hugh Williamson, Rob Seemann, and Rick Pollock took the top 3 places at the BRSC National Championships this year using HWP barrels.
