United States Air Rifle Benchrest
New USA Spring Piston Class
USARB is pleased to announce the addition of USA Spring Piston rifle classification. Sanctioning is on a 12-month trial basis to gauge support and participation by shooters. Permanent sanctioning beyond the trial period will be based on visible participation by shooters as evidenced by club competition scores posted to USARB Scoreline page. Rules for this class were developed with the cooperation of a group of respected Match Directors interested in promoting the class. The Board of Directors wishes to convey its appreciation of all members of this Committee for their leadership, effort, and end product.
Introducing the Board of Directors:
- Joe Friedrich, Open Grove Air Rifle Oxnard, California
- Ron Silveira, Wild River Air Rifle Grants Pass, Oregon
- Bob Zimmerman, Houston Benchrest Group Houston, Texas
- Craig Young, WRABF Executive Officer South Carolina
Those shooters wishing to qualify for the 2015 World Championships in Brisbane, Australia must shoot at a sanctioned regional event during 2014. Regional events and dates will be announced here.
For 2014, a $25.00 per year, per club fee will be collected for sanctioning purposes. Funds will cover both organizational costs and discretionary items.
