There have been a number of requests for information about this match. So here you go:

This is a World Benchrest Shooting Federation (WBSF) sanctioned event: http://www.worldbenchrest.com/

The match is being hosted by the French Shooting Federation (FFTIR) https://www.fftir.org/

The actual range (CNTS) is here: https://cnts.fftir.org/ This is in very close proximity to the town of Chateauroux. About a 3 hr bus ride south of Paris.

For interest there are videos of the European Championships held at this range in 2022:  https://www.fftir.org/competitions/@reportage/cde-bench-rest-cnts-2022-photos-et-reportage/

I think the best place to see results will be here:  https://www.fftir.org/competitions/@reportage/cdm-wbsf-bench-rest-informations-pratiques/

A number of Facebook pages will likely have results posted as well if you want to look them up:

Congrats to everyone who took on this challenge and put in so much time and energy. Thanks for stepping up and representing Canada!

Some great finishes, and hopefully it was a good experience for you. I know I sure enjoyed following along!
Congratulations to Rob with his  1st place in HV100 and 2nd - HV AGG!
Mark also had several great finishes in the top 5 and 10.
And Team A with their 2nd in LV200!

(If I missed something here I apologize, it's a lot to keep track of.)
