2023 BRSC Nationals Update
« on: November 23, 2022, 09:18:55 AM »
Just a quick update.

I have been getting a lot of questions when it will be contested.  Normally the Executive Committee at the Selkirk Game & Fish sets the schedule the first meeting in January. 

After some discussions with Grant, we are unable to host it on a Long weekend.  Initially the plan was August Long weekend, unfortunately Selkirk will be hosting the IPSC Canadian Nationals that same weekend.  They will be needing the entire facility for that event. 

We have decided that the BRSC Nationals will be held July 28-30, 2023.  That is the information I can pass on at this time.

Stay tuned in the new year for more updates.

Thanks Calvin. Much appreciated. For out of towners, we often stay at the Canalta Hotel in Selkirk for this shoot.

Thank you for the heads up and hotel recommendation.  Its nice to be able to tentatively book things before it is sold out. 

Have a great Christmas season and looking forward to more information in the spring

A few questions have been asked.

Re accommodations,

Canalta Hotel in Selkirk, newest place.  Restaurants close by are BP and Tim Hortons.  C-Tire next door, Walmart across the street.  Quickest to range, just over 10 minutes.

Selkirk Inn & Conference Center.  Restaurant is the Smitties next door.  Approx 20 minutes to range.

South Beach Casino, approx 30 minutes north of the range on Highway 59.

Camping, there is plenty of room to park travel trailers if you so desire.  No power available. 

Loading trailers, can accommodate those as well and power we can supply for them.

Fridge, coffee maker, barbecue on site.  Water is not potable.  Bathrooms in the clubhouse.

Preregistrations, let's deal with that in the new year.  Let's get thru this holiday season.  Knowing the numbers is a help.  Would be nice to have a Saturday barbecue after the shooting.

Stay tuned.

As of today, I have 19 names that said they will or plan on attending.  Some of the locals I am assuming they will be there.  I have 4 possibles but I have not heard officially from them.

I know it is early in the year and things can definately change by then.  I am hoping they do not and we get to meet some of you guys from afar.

We will be capping registrations at 2 relays, 28 shooters.

I will be updating as the days weeks months get us closer to the date.

Figured a quick update.  As of today I believe the count is at 26.  Hope's are that everyone is able to come when we get closer to the date.  We have people signed up from Western Ontario all the way to Vancouver Island. 

Shortly, I will get a Map up with the quickest directions  from Winnipeg to the Canalta Inn in Selkirk and from there to the range.

Find attached a map with the shortest route to the Canalta Inn in Selkirk.  I have also included a map from the Canalta to the range for those of you who have not been to the range.

For those of you who may be traveling with your spouses, and they may not want to just hang around the hotel or range, there are many places not that far away to visit.

If you are a Casino person, there is South Beach Casino within a 1/2 hr drive of Selkirk.  https://www.southbeachcasino.ca/

Beach person, Grand Beach just a little further north of the Casino.  I believe was rated at one time in the top 10 in the world.  https://www.travelmanitoba.com/directory/grand-beach-provincial-park/

History, Lower Fort Garry National Historic Park just south of Selkirk.  https://parks.canada.ca/lhn-nhs/mb/fortgarry

Canadian Human Rights Museum located at The Forks downtown Winnipeg.  https://humanrights.ca/?gad=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwrpOiBhBVEiwA_473dGRpnM1xb1rvP9Rw0HRxv-iUuRCo-hV7S-YMjHQl--JGAChbnggsaBoCutEQAvD_BwE

The Forks Market itself is a nice afternoon destination.  https://www.theforks.com/

Finally another nice drive and stops along the way is cottage country on the way to Gimli thru Winnipeg Beach.

Any questions, feel free to contact me at anytime.

Another update.

Re flags, you will need 1 or 2 poles that can make about close to 8' beyond the 100 yard line.  From the bench to 100, you are about 3.5' poles.  If you have Graham flags with the standard pin, I can bring extra taller flag poles for the Graham guys.

The clubhouse, we have 5 tables that we can handle 4 per table with cleaning outside.  If you have and are able to bring a smaller table for cleaning great.  If not we will make it work.  My table that I use is 4'x2'.  I load and clean comfortably.

Flag sharing.  If you have someone you are wanting to share flags with, that will help when registering.  We have guys here who have Graham flags and a few Smiley flag guys.  1 Hood flag guy.

Like I said when it gets to the very beginning of July I will confirm registrations, loading trailers and travel trailers.

The plan is I will be at the range by Thursday noon.  If anyone plans to be sooner let me know. 

Practice will be Thursday afternoon and Friday.  AGM Friday, later in afternoon.  Target frames will go up, bench draw will be done and flag setting can be done.  The plan is we will have someone on site.  The main range will be  closed to the general public for Friday thru Sunday when we are done.

Any other questions or concerns, let me know via email, text, or call.

I forgot to mention there are still spots available.  4 to be exact as of this AM.

We have shooters registered from MB right to Vancouver Island.  Fingers crossed...........

We are just over 1 week away.  Looks like things are falling into place.

Like was mentioned earlier I should be at the range no later than 10AM Thursday.  If anyone may be there B4 then please let me know.

Any questions like I said just get ahold of me.  Look forward to seeing those I have not seen in a while.

Another tidbit of info, you do not need to bring a stool for the bench.  The seats are part of the bench.  You save a bit of room not needing them unless for a reloading stool.

Well the 2023 BRSC Nationals is in the bank.  Rick will be posting full results when he makes it back home safely. 

I want to say I think it turned out to be a great weekend.  The weather was great with some heat and humidity as well as cool mornings and if memory serves me right,one cool overcast day of practice. 

It was great to finally meet the people who's names you see on the forum and make new acquaintances/friends.

I want to thank all those who travelled the great distances to be a part of the Nationals in Selkirk.  From as far west as Vancouver Island and as close as CooksCreek MB.

Until the full results are posted here are a few pictures to enjoy.

What  I can and will say is a Congratulations to the top 3 in the 2 Gun.

2 Gun winner is Steve Horsley from High River, AB.  Steve shot steady all weekend.  Second place went to Grant Schick Cooks Creek,MB and third to Rick Pollock Calgary AB.  Steve ended up winning ahead of Grant by 9 10 thousands.  Not fairing well myself, (cannon fodder) it was great to look in on the scorer to see the dog fight flip back and forth after targets were shot.  It was a great battle to the end for those at the top.

Congrats again Steve and it was a pleasure to have you.
