ROCHESTER, New York, - The Northeast Regional Field Target Championship (NRFTC) hosted by Crosman will be held July 6-8 on the campus of Crosman Corporation in Bloomfield, New York. Registration has been extended until June 29 for those wishing to compete.
According to Crosman Shooting Services Manager, Mark DeBoard, "We've extended the deadline in order to encourage more people to try their hand at field target shooting," he said.
"Having the event on the Crosman campus allows participants and visitors to do more than compete," said DeBoard. "In addition to a shooting competition, we have a factory tour, product demos and plenty of staff to answer questions or simply talk airguns," he said. "Of course, since this event is designed to attract more people to field target competition, we try to challenge national competitors, while providing a forgiving enough experience for shooters new to competition. It's a really a lot of fun," DeBoard said.
The field target course involves two rounds of 60 shots each, for a total of 120 shots spread across 30 lanes. Participants shoot their first round on 15 lanes Saturday morning. The second round is Sunday morning. Friday includes a full day of sighting in, socializing, the factory tour and the exciting Quigley Bucket Challenge. For a few hours on Friday afternoon, the Crosman Company Store will be open to all.
The match fee is $60 per shooter and includes lunch on Saturday and Sunday. The pistol match and Quigley Bucket Challenge are free to rifle match competitors and $25 for those shooting pistol only. Single day entries are $25. Bringing a non-competing guest on Saturday? For $10 we'll feed them lunch too.
