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.

IBS Factory Class Rules

Jane Dewees News

To all of our IBS members,
In effort to strengthen and diversify the Long Range shooting disciplines the Long Range Committee and the IBS E-Board has developed two new classes to shooters other than the traditional Heavy and Light Gun categories. At all Ranges that choose to participate, we will introduce a Factory Class and a Tactical Class.(rules included)
It is our goal to offer these classes to shooters that cannot or do not find the traditional Heavy and Light Gun classes desirable. With the large surge in Tactical style shooting we felt we were leaving an opportunity to include these shooters unattended. Please review these rules and feel free to contact your local ranges or LR committee member with any additional questions.
Sincerely
The International Benchrest Shooters.
