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.

This will be the schedule format of the ABRA National Event:
Each class will shoot 6 cards per person. If shooting both classes that is a total of 12 cards.
There will be 3 sets, with each set consisting of 3 relays and each relay being 2 cards.
This is being done to accommodate those that want to shoot both classes and not turn it into a marathon where they have to shoot 12 straight cards.
Each group of shooters assigned to a bench will be referred to as a squad.
A squad can consist of 2-3 shooters.
Those squads with shooters only shooting one class can consist of 2 or 3 shooters and each will shoot one 2 card relay per set.
Those shooting 2 classes will be teamed with a shooter who is only shooting one class.
The 2 class shooter will shoot their unlimited in one relay then their factory in another relay within that set.
e.g. Set 1 – The shooter shooting 2 classes shoots their factory gun for 2 cards relay 1. The other squad member shoots their class for the 2nd relay. The 2 class shooter then shoots the unlimited class for the 3rd relay.
Which relay a squad member shoots within a set will be determined by the squad members.

Once the set has been complete each squad will rotate 5 benches in order to start their second set of cards. After second set of cards have been completed in the same rotation fashion each squad will move down 5 benches to complete their third set of cards.
We will allow approximately 10 minutes between cards and relays and 20 minutes between each set to move wind indicator devices, flags and probes, thus giving everyone plenty of time to setup and be ready for the next relay or set.
If you choose to shoot both Unlimited and Factory Class there will be an additional cost of $30.00 for the 2nd gun, (class) total fees for competitors choosing to shoot both classes will be $80.00.
Please let us know ahead of time if you are going to shoot both classes, you can contact us by email, or phone with that information. We Will need this information no later than August 15, 2018 along with your registration form and fees. To be mailed to the ABRA office.

Bench assignments will be pulled randomly from a hat prior to everyone showing up.
Squads – if you have already found a partner or partners to complete your squad of 2 or 3 please let us know ahead of time. We will match squads together randomly if you don’t already have a squad.
Saturday evening after the VA ABRA State Tournament your assignments will be handed to you.
Awards and door prizes will be presented after the it is all said and done. You must be present to win the door prizes.

Look forward to seeing everyone there.
