    Kettlefoot Gun Club, Bristol VA, will be hosting the Auto Benchrest Association, ABRA, National Tournament Labor Day weekend. A National Tournament Champion will be crowned for both adults and juniors in the unlimited and factory classes. ABRA’s goal is to make this one of the major 22LR bench rest events of the year with cash, minimum of $2000 to be paid out, prizes and a special Belt Buckle being design for the National Tournament winners. ABRA is diligently working with vendors to ensure that many prizes are available so no matter how well you shoot you still have a chance of taking home not only memories of a great time but merchandise too.

    This is a great opportunity for those 22LR Semiauto rifle owners to give benchrest shooting a try, met some of the current top shooters in the ABRA ranks and learn how exciting and fun the sport can be.

    Kettlefoot ABRA will be Hosting the VA State Tournament the same weekend with the schedule as follows.
    Friday, August 31, 2018 - 12:00 PM - PRACTICE
    Friday, August 31, 2018 - 6:00 PM - 3 Card two person Team Money Match - Entrée Fee $30

    If you have noticed or not, the VA State Championship will be shot the day before the National Match. We already have Bartlein Barrels and Good Shooting Inc online for sponsoring the Prize Table for the State Match.

    Also, on the Friday before the VA State Match and the Nationals.. we will have a warm up day and at 6 pm we will have a 3 Card two person Team Money Match. There is a nice catch to it.. and it will make it exciting!

    This team even is like none that you have shot in the past.. each team will have one card to which to shoot upon. And yes, you will be able to choose your team member.

    Protocol for this team event is in the following:

    1) Each team shoots on one card.
    2) Order of shooting will be from bull number 1 to bull number 20.
    3) The team member on the left bench will shoot the odd number bulls.
    4) The team member on the right bench will shoot the even number bulls.
    6) Shooting will begin with the left bench shooter and then the team member on the right bench will shoot.. this will be in "alternating" fashion! Meaning shooting will be in numerical fashion, starting with bull number one, then two, then three and so forth till the last shot is made by the team member on the right hand bench with bull number 20.

    All three targets must be shot in this fashion.

    No you can not have the shooter on the left first shoot all of their bulls first and then have the right member shoot theirs..

    Scoring is by the row and high card for each relay. Ties split dividends.

    Updated the prize list, received a Sightron Scope Model # 25138 to give away. Appreciate the support from Sightron Inc.
    Jerry Smith out of Minden LA. donated a very nice $$$ amount to the prize money to be awarded. Thank You Jerry.
    Get those 22LR semiauto's out of the closet and make it to Kettlefoot for the Labor Day National Tournament. Great prizes to be given away and a lot of cash to be awarded.
