Visiting Competitors and Delegates,

The Organizing Committee wants to send a reminder that competitor documents can be found here https://rosebudsilhouetteandbenchrestclub.wildapricot.org/ if you havenít seen them already. We will add to the downloadable documents as the event approaches.
 
Note we specifically had booked the WBC in close proximity to the Calgary Stampede. You may wish to come a few days early to take in what is billed as the Greatest Outdoor Show on earth. It is a very large event comprising a Rodeo, Chuckwagon racing, evening grandstand live entertainment show, and an enormous Midway and Exhibition. Details are here and tickets are on sale for 2019.  https://www.calgarystampede.com/stampede

In regard to the non-airline friendly components required to compete we have a dedicated Vendor Plenty O Patches handling the supply of powder, primers, sand, cleaning supplies, hand tools etc. They will also have a selection of BR specific barrels, triggers, rests etc if you are so inclined. An order form will be developed in the coming months. https://www.plentyopatches.com/

Official Invitation letters are available for the asking. Once you have selected your teams send me the names and we can send an official invitation.

Lastly a reminder to let me know the preliminary numbers of competitors your country will be sending, if you have not already.

Looking forward to seeing you and your team in July, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

With Kind Regards,
Rick Pollock

Anyone can come out and watch. No problem at all. Bring your hearing protection, a spotting scope and tripod if you happen to have one, and a camera if you want to record things. Match days are July 17th-21st. Matches will run about 9am-4pm. Official practice days are July 14, 15, 16, I expect most competitors will be there about the same times, say 9-4.  Best time to talk to the shooters is on the practice days. There will be a concession open around the lunch hour.

Here are directions to the range:
