Fellow Shooters,

At this point the WBSF has indicated the World Championships will be held in South Africa in 2023. Of course this is all subject to unforeseen circumstances and restrictions that the host country has no control over. There is no set date yet or location. We are all awaiting that information, but as per previous years the qualifying takes place a year in advance of the tournament.

Here is the qualifying process for the 2023 World Benchrest Team. There are a few things that each shooter needs to take care of to be eligible for the team:

1. Each shooter needs to declare their intention to enter the qualifying process by the end of February 2022. An email to registering their intention to qualify will be sufficient.
2. Each shooter needs to be a member of BRSC during the qualifying year and the competition year.
3. During the competition season in 2022, shooters will need to email with evidence of their placings at various events to be added to the qualifying points tally and roster of shooters. All sanctioned group shoots are eligible for points accumulation.
4. At the end of 2022 each shooter will be asked to confirm by email if they plan to attend the World Championships in South Africa and submit a $500 CDN deposit to the World Team to be used against the entry fee for the World Championship.

Note: the qualifying ranking will be in accordance to the previous years format with your rank based upon how many points you have accumulated in the qualifying year. Points are awarded based upon how many shooters you placed above in your (6) best Grand Aggregates (LV, HV, SP) during 2022. There will be a cap of available points in each Grand Aggregate based upon the total # of shooters entered in the 2022 Cactus Classic.

Team selection will be based on this final ranking of accumulated points, and receipt of entry fee deposit, with the final selection taking place no later than December 31st, 2022.

The 2021 BRSC Nationals are in the bag! Hugh Williamson is your 2021 Champion! Well done to Hugh in what were some pretty sporty conditions. Numerous out of town shooters from as far away as Vancouver Island joined in on the fun, and made the event all that much more fun.

Thanks go out to all out helpers and volunteers and especially to Rosebud Club for the terrific venue. We look forward to shooting with everyone in 2022.

Thanks for posting this. It is great to see people holding matches again.

Brian, I received the 2-Gun results by text. See attached file. Was there an equipment list recorded?

Please take note that the BRSC National Championships have been re-scheduled and will be held at the Rosebud Silhouette & Benchrest Club Sept. 4th and 5th. There will be a practice day on the Friday before the match. This is a registered match and will consist of LV 100 and HV 100 on the Saturday and then HV 200 and LV 200 on the Sunday.

We will have the BRSC AGM on the Friday, Sept. 3rd, in the Clubhouse at 3PM.

For any out of town visitors not familiar with the procedure to access the Club please contact me in advance.

The Club will provide a dinner including a main course and side dishes as well as soft drinks and snacks on the Saturday after the matches are completed. Shooters and guests are welcome, please let me know if you can attend.

Camping is available, just let me know in advance to make arrangements.

This looks like it will be a terrific turnout, and some very stiff competition. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Rick Pollock

Equipment list is attached.

The 2021 Stampede Shootout is in the bag. Saturday was very hot and on Sunday we had thunderstorms at 7:30 AM. Go figure! A good time was had by all and we welcomed shooters from as far away as Vancouver Island and Manitoba. The swap meet was a success, and the practice day was well attended. A very good turnout and we look forward to hosting this again in 2022!

Congratulations to Wayne Miller who is our 4-Gun Champion!

Notable shooting by:
Wayne Miller with a .095 screamer in HV 100
Hugh Williamson with a .091 screamer in Unlimited 5 shot 100 yards
Possible record for Vic Edmunds with a .1572 Aggregate in Unlimited 100 Yards
Possibel record for Hugh Williamson with a .1696 Aggregate in Unlimited 100 yards

See everyone Sept 4/5 for the BRSC Nationals in Rosebud.
