 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:

  • Dead Zero is planning to hold its 1000 yard match on 6/6/20, CALL THE MATCH DIRECTOR CLOSE TO THE MATCH DATE TO CONFIRM THIS.
  • Thunder Valley is planning to hold its 1000 yard and 1 Mile matches on 6/20/20.    CALL THE MATCH DIRECTOR CLOSE TO THE MATCH DATE TO CONFIRM THIS.  
  • Matches at White Horse MAY START as soon as 6/6/20, BUT BE SURE TO CONTACT THE MATCH DIRECTOR CLOSE TO THE MATCH DATE TO CONFIRM THIS.
  • Updated Schedule posted.

See you at the range!
Best Regards,

Jeff Green

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.


Best Regards,

Jeff Green

President GBA

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 .
