2020 IBS Group Nationals

Jane Dewees News


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.

With the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, please pay close attention to the IBS match schedule.  Some matches are being canceled due to local or state orders, while some are not if the range's jurisdiction has lifted ordes. Shooter of the Year points earned this year are still valid.  Please pay close attention to schedule updates.  If in doubt, please contact the match director for the latest information.  Match procedures may be modified by match directors to ensure social distancing.
