Attention Junior Shooters!
Two Hosts for the JORC!
by Deb Lyman, CSRRA Jr Director
On behalf of the Connecticut State Rifle & Revolver Association
(CSRRA), I am pleased to announce that USA Shooting has selected two
state hosts for the 2013 USA Shooting Junior Olympic Rifle
Championships (JORC). You can only fire in one event, but the
option for two different dates should enable all to participate.
The CSRRA will sponsor one of the two qualifying matches on December 13-14-15, 2013 at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut. It will be a great experience as the match will be fired on Megalink electronic targets, giving competitors invaluable experience. Air rifles are available for match participants thanks to grants from the advance. Competitors who qualify for a trip to Colorado Springs with scores fired at the Coast Guard Academy will be eligible for CSRRA funding, as any profits from this match contribute to that funding pool.
If you are unable to fire in the Coast Guard Academy JORC held on December 13-14-15, 2013, you are encouraged to participate in the JORC sponsored by Bridgeport Rifle Club on January 4-5, 2014.
This announcement will make it clear that there are two JORCs being held in Connecticut this year. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly.
Many Connecticut shooters are also participating in the Shoreline Classic held at Niantic on the same weekend. So, it will be a busy weekend--block out both days and shoot in both the JORC and Niantic match.
Scores from all three matches, whose programs are attached, will be used in consideration for the selection of the 2014 Connecticut All-State teams.
The combined results of last year's JORC matches are posted on the CSRRA website at www.csrra.com.
