"ANNOUNCEMENT

"Hello to all Long Range Marksmen!

"Hello to all Long Range Marksmen!

Thanks for coming to our State Championship. I have heard many positive comments from y'all, and this is greatly appreciated. Our State Championship is a bit unique because we aggregate 4 Light Gun and 4 Heavy Gun Targets over two days of competition. It was a great turnout. We had 59 Light Gun and 43 Heavy Gun Competitors. And you were all terrific! Lots of good conversations and good will. My view is that the 1000 Yard Shooters are the finest group within IBS! Attached you will find the relay and shoot-off results for our IBS matches 7, 8, 9 and 10, and the aggregate results for the Virginia State Championship – with Equipment List and VA 1000 Points. My apologies for the delay in getting the Aggregate results out. Because of the large number of shooters we overloaded our aggregate software program. Many thanks to Ben Allread for expanding the aggregate program to accommodate this. And also much thanks to Ben for creating this program that we have used for several years at our State Championships. We are very grateful to our many sponsors. Cash and prizes for our State Championship totaled more than $11,000! Sponsors include:

Bat Machine

Capstone Precision

Defiance Machine

Douglas Barrels

Eazor Precision

Graf and Sons

Hornady

Matthews Long Range Supply

Nightforce Optics

Virginia 1000 Yard Benchrest Club For the prizes you won at the match, please be sure to thank the sponsor. It is a great thing to have so many sponsors! Our shooters put on quite a display during the two days of competition. We had 22 Light Gun targets with groups under 3.5", and 20 perfect 50 scores. For Heavy Gun we had 24 targets with groups under 5.5", and 5 perfect 100 scores. It was some kind of tough competition!

Bulletin Board Notes:

8th. Jan. 2012 Notes 2

In 2012, a total of 156 shooters earned points in 1000 yard matches. There were a total of 177 days of competition for IBS long range in the USA in 2012. Average attendance at long range matches is 30 shooters.

And if you think that the competition is tough at our Va. 1000 club matches, you are correct. Of the top 25 IBS Long Range shooters, 18 competed regulary at the Virginia 1000 Yard Benchrest Club matches in 2012. WOW!

1000 yard nationals for 2013 will be held at Yukon in Missouri.

Precision Shooting magazine is no longer being published. The IBS Board is working with AccurateShooter.com to become the publishing site for current IBS news, this is not yet fully defined and agreed, but it has great promise to raise awareness and interest in all IBS shooting disciplines. The IBS web site will continue to be the source for match results, records, schedules, and all information that is now on the IBS site. You can also visit "IBS News" on this sites Main Menu on left for pictures of awards from the 2012 meeting. .

Australian Postal Match:

 

  We have developed a relationship with a great group of guys from down under in Australia. They are competing at 1000yd shooting using the IBS match style. We are comparing results as a "postal match" type of deal, which I think is pretty neat. Keep checking as we will be working on this as time allows.
