2014 & 2015 NRA Smallbore Championships are Moving

You have probably heard by now that we are moving the NRA SMALLBORE RIFLE CHAMPIONSHIPS to Bristol, IN, in 2014. This move is necessary to support the World Palma Rifle Championships scheduled to be held at Camp Perry in 2015. 2014 will be “dress rehearsal” for 2015.

The 2014 & 2015 Smallbore Rifle Championships are being planned at the Wa-Ke-De Range, Bristol, IN. Located just off the Indiana Toll Road, Interstate 80, approximately three hours due west of Camp Perry, OH. The Wa-Ke-De Range features a 100 point asphalt covered firing line and sits in a large grove of trees providing a beautiful setting and shelter from the wind. This range is ideal for smallbore rifle competition.

The tentative dates are July 14-25, 2014 (including the Metric Championship). We will have enough range space for 300 competitors. We are planning two barbecues, one for the Prone Championship and one for the Position Championship, and we are planning to have the Awards Ceremonies at Das Dutchman Essenhaus, an Amish style hotel with restaurants, shops, and a sit down family style dinner, for the Conventional Championships. We expect to have the Championship Program published — and on line — no later than Match 3rd, 2014 with registrations starting April 1, 2014.

We are currently working with the community to secure special rates for local lodging. Competitors who like to camp will have plenty of opportunity with a KOA Campground just a mile away from the range and there are 20 range RV hookups on the range. For those who wish to have hotel or motel accommodations, Das Dutch Essenhaus is located just five miles away next to Middleboro. There are about 8-10 hotels and restaurants just 10 to 15 minutes away from the range at exit 92. The Staff Hotel is the Baymont Inns and Suites, Elkhart, just a 10 minute drive from the range. Limited, special rate, rooms will be available.

If you would like more information please contact HQ Moody, 703-267-1475, or contact him directly if you are attending the 2013 NRA National Smallbore Rifle Championships, Camp Perry.
