WBSF - World Benchrest Shooting Federation Events / WBC Qualifying
« on: October 27, 2013, 01:45:24 PM »
Below is the copied motion for the selection of individuals for WBC competition.

I understand that this would only be used when the space for competitors is less than the number interested. My question is this. Is there still a limit on the number of competitors one country can have? If not it looks like one country could flood the WBC with say 50 or 100 applicants that may have been able to shoot Grand aggs , in the USA for instance with 100-200 enterants , finish mid pac and have say 300 points and apply to the WBC for a postion. Would this person be competing against another individual from a country where BR is less popular and shoot aggs against 10 to 20 shooters win very agg and end up with a max of 120 points?
I suppose that the WBC is trying to qualify the highest quality of shooter but I can see the potential for some problems. Do the member countries that participate in the WBC have to sanction the individual shooters that apply and if so is it not up the that country to field its best competitors?
I am sure the motion is incomplete in the explanation and the Canadian shooters who attended the meeting can fill in the blanks.

Club Events / 2012 Road Runner Rio Grand Benchrest shooters
« on: September 03, 2012, 08:40:55 PM »
This year I decided to try to make one or two matches at ranges that I had never shot. I was in Billings in June and just got back from New Mexico. The first thing I would say the Rio Grand range is the finest BR shooting facility I have ever shot at. The match was very well run with no glitches. Todd Tyler, Ed Adams and Jack Snyder put on a fantastic match.

AIR CONDITIONED reloading building close to the line but nice and quiet while the line is shooting.

The firing line is well covered , the benches are 10 ft plus apart the range is flat with no berms.

The weather was perfect. 80s-90s 20% RH. Windy as would be expected but not switchy.. I picked up some Canadian AA 2015 lot3 and Benchmark at the local Sportsman Warehouse. I never got a good handle on the 2015 as the first agg showed  and switched to Benchmark. Things got better but wasn't able to keep up with the big boys.. Stats are on BRCentral if you are interested. I shot behind Charles Huckeba. I had not met him before. He was great to shoot with and I learned alot about his tuner use. A real gentleman and one of the the BR greats.
I highly recommend this shoot. The people are great the facility is the very best and I plan to be back.
