Hot on the heals of a 5th place at the Cactus, Hugh Williamson has taken 3rd place at the Shamrock! Very impressive!

Sorry for the slow response. A number of notable performances turned in by our Canadians.

Hugh Williamson was 5th in the 2-Gun and Mark Dumont was 17th in the 2-Gun, a great results at his first Cactus!

Steve Horsely was 3rd in the LV200 on Sunday afternoon is some very challenging conditions.

A terrific start to the 2024 season by these shooters!

I am pleased to report 2 BRSC records shot in 2023.

June 11, 2023   Canadian Record   Hugh Williamson
HV 200 Yards 5-Shot .1830" Aggregate   

August 26/27   Canadian Record   Phil Nick
Heavy Varmint for Score 499-21X Grand Aggregate

Well done to both shooters! Lets see more records fall in 2024!

Certificates will be sent out and teh records book updated.

We are under way with qualifying for 2025. Tally of the results post Cactus Classic is attached below. Note we are using a max available points for any one Grand Aggregate of 111 points. All the zeros on the spreadsheet are merely place holders to allow the sort function to run as it needs 6 results for each shooter to function.

Thanks for posting this Dwayne.

Well happy leap day to everyone. As of today we have 25 shooters who registered to qualify for the 2025 World Benchrest Team and represent Canada in St. Louis next year.  See attached list which is in no particular order. Note this is the most we have had register to qualify, at least since I have been organizing this team. I am very impressed with this amount of interest, and the quality of our qualifiers. Good luck to all!

BTW if somehow your name is not on this list and you think it should be then let me know asap. I think I have everyone but maybe someone slipped through the cracks.
