Brian Dent Memorial-GA Long Range Championship Nov 7 & 8 2020 - Red White & Blue

Jane Dewees News

We have decided that our regular Georgia State Match will be the Brian Dent Memorial Georgia Long Range Championship. Just to give everyone a quick background on the year. When Tom decided to build a Long Range Benchrest range in Tennille Ga. Brian Dent step up to the plate and did what all good men should do and that was help his neighbor out. Next to Tom Brian he has more hours in grading at the range than most get in 12 months let alone 6. He worked day and night to help us work never asking for a dime. Little did we know that a man that had become mine and others best friend would be buried today. Brian found out he had Cancer in September and passed away from a stroke Tuesday, he said the cancer would not kill him and he was right. He leaves behind a beautiful and loving wife as well as two daughters that are just as beautiful and loving as well as a granddaughter that is on the way. With all of this said here what is going to happen on 11/7/2020 and 11/8/2020 we are going to honor our friend the best way we know how and that’s to have a great time shooting on the range that he helped build we are going to raise some money for the charity of the family choice as well as help the family if they need it . So here is the plan and it may change some as we get closer we will shoot 600 yards on Saturday and as soon as the 600 yard match is over we are going to do a Deer Hunter challenge and maybe even a Turkey Hunters challenge we will have more info on that as we go . I know it is in the middle of the rut in Ga but do like Brian did go hunt in the morning about 30 minutes kill one and enjoy the day. Then on Sunday we will finish with a 1000-yard match, calculate the scores and group Agg. from both 600 and 1000 Yard and name the winner of the first annual Brian Dent Memorial Georgia Long Range Bench Rest Champion.
Sorry for another long post it is hard to describe how much Brian meant to all of us. Please keep Brian’s family in your prayers as well as Tom he lost more than a friend he lost his right hand man when it came to working and talking hunting and fishing.
Look forward to seeing each of you . God Bless

Canceled - Colorado Rifle Club, Byers, CO 1000 Yard Match Scheduled for October 17

Jane Dewees News

Due to a significant work-related back injury, I will be cancelling the 1000 Yr BR match scheduled for 10-17-20 at the Colorado Rifle Club. My doc tells me I am "out of commission" for at least the next three weeks. I would normally turn my director duties over to one of my more experienced shooters who have supported me through the 2020 season. Unfortunately, they are both out of state on vacation. I do not trust the experience of my other shooters to conduct a IBS sanctioned match. By the time I am on my feet, snow will be flying in our state and many of my shooters will be chasing elk in the mountains. For that reason, I am not planning on trying to schedule a "make-up" match for this year.

Our start up program has gone well this year and we are making plans to expand for the 2021 season. I will be submitting a ten match schedule for IBS approval soon.

Sincerely,
Jerry White

2020 IBS Group Nationals

Jane Dewees News

All,

On June 15, 2002 the IBS Executive Board and Group Committee reluctantly decided to CANCEL the 2020 Group Nationals. The Mainville (PA) Sportsman's Club board of directors denied the use of its clubhouse for the scheduled early August Nationals. Significant effort was expended to move the Group Nationals, but no other viable options were left. Other range venues were considered (such as Dublin, St. Louis and Fairchance) but each had serious drawbacks that could not be overcome. The goal of the IBS is to have a quality match that is well-attended; we do not see that as possible this year. See you at the 2021 Group Nationals.
