URGENT - IBS Statement on COVID-19 and Registered Matches

Jane Dewees News

The International Benchrest Shooters recommend that all clubs hosting IBS matches
cancel matches from March 17, 2020 through April 12, 2020. This advice is advisory,
and it is up to the respective club to decide whether to proceed. Further, the IBS
advises adherence to guidance or directives from federal, state and local authorities
relative to public gatherings. If you are sick, please stay home or seek appropriate
medical care. The average age of our benchrest shooters put us among the most
vulnerable to COVID-19. As things progress, the IBS Executive Board will reassess
further guidance relative to the match schedule. The usual 30-day notice for
rescheduling of matches has been reduced to 14-days.

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.
