    I’m surprised the NRA went with a 5 year contract. I was figuring more more along the lines of two years before they completely drop smallbore as a national championship event.

    What has happened to the Smallbore National Championships … ATTENDENCE, ATTENDENCE, ATTENDENCE !
    Average attendance for NRA Prone National Championships from 2003 thru 2013 was 265 competitors. Year 2013 saw 316 competitors with 47 four(4) mans teams. Year 2016 witnessed 130 competitors and only 11 four(4)man teams. The move from Camp Perry has “crushed the National smallbore 3pos and prone championships events.

    Someone on the NRA smallbore committee ought to recognize and admit to all parties that the need for Camp Perry to designate the 2 years (2014 & 2015) to International Palma matches was a huge mistake. Now the NRA is locked into a 5 year contract for Bristol,IA.
