A time slot of 12.30-1.30 has been allocated for the GR competitors only to shoot and there are many benches to accommodate.

Any scope magnification
If you can borrow a "fancy" rest, you're more than welcome to use it, or there's the wooden blocks at the range or even bi-pods.

Other time slots are for the 4 disciplines of BR

Hi Everyone,

In addition to Pistol and Gallery there will be a Benchrest competition for IS, LV and HV. To accommodate those who can only travel on one of the days it will be possible to shoot your Benchrest cards on either day (or both days). The only stipulation is that both cards for any one class must be shot on the same day.

As you know there are 18 benches in Fermoy so room for everyone.

As the weather deteriorates the opportunities to travel and shoot will be few for the next 3 months, so we expect a big turnout.

See you there.

Annual Challenge Cup

Date:           7th/8th and 9th September 2012.

Location:     MNSCI

Run By:       NRBAI

Time:          10am   each day.

Details:       International Sporter, Light Varmint (12 power) and Heavy Varmint.

We have set up the Annual Challenge Cup with the UK Benchrest Association. The inaugural event will be in the Midlands Club

There will be a maximum of 2 teams of 3 for each discipline (a total 6 shooters in each of IS, LV and HV).

The entry cost for the event is €30. This covers all events, regardless of how many you may be competing in. (on the day is fine).

This is a great opportunity for Benchrest shooters to represent Ireland in their sport. With 6 possible per event this gives a great opportunity for everyone to get their Irish Cap.  The UK has already decided to send a strong team to take us on. We can’t let them take our cup away.

As is the norm in European and World Benchrest,  performance in the Nationals  will be the major factor in team selection.  This will be combined with results throughout this year in NRBAI and NASRPC events.

NRBAI Ireland shirts are available at €20 each. Let me know your size – small, medium, large , extra large.

If you plan to stay over I understand that most are staying at the Tullamore Court Hotel. The range is betwen Birr and Tullamore so there are lots of other options.
