Hello fellow Benchrest Shooters,
We are starting to see some loosening of the economic shutdown. Unfortunately we are still at the mercy of the State and County Health Officials. However, we expect to see some of our clubs holding matches very soon:
See you at the range!
New proposed Short Range Rules posted to Rules and By-Laws section.
Hello Long and Short Range Benchrest Shooters,
It is very unfortunate that the WuHan Flu/Chinese Flu/Corona Virus has lasted this long. Most local and federal government agencies have placed restrictions on gatherings of people, social distancing, etc. This has effectively stopped all of us from holding GBA matches for the moment. Please note that it is up to the Range Owners and Clubs to determine when they are ready to start holding matches again. GBA will not interfere with this.
We will update the competition schedule periodically, but it would be best if you would check with the Match Director/Board Member for the matches you plan to attend, and especially before traveling to a match, to get the most current information.

Points of shooting interest :
At Va 1000, Harry Jones, and White Horse 1000 Yd matches they are shooting Factory and Hunter class relays
At Thunder Valley in Ohio, they are shooting Tactical class relays and also shooting One Mile relays.
Might be worth a trip out there to shooting in different classes and to Ohio to shoot One mile.
The GBA board has received feedback from some of the shooting community and has responded to many of the concerns and modified areas of the program to improve the overall shooting experience when attending a sanctioned GBA match. Please read the attache Program Announcement file below .
