NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Shooting Sports Summit, set for June 10-12 2013 in Springfield, Mass., has been postponed to June 9-11, 2014.

“We have postponed the Shooting Sports Summit so we can fully focus our resources on the legislative and regulatory challenges our industry is facing,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF senior president and chief marketing officer.

“We remain committed to working with our Task Force 20/20 partner organizations to increase hunting and recreational shooting participation by 20 percent by the end of 2014.”

Formed in 2008, Task Force 20/20 Steering Committee consists of key individuals from 15 organizations representing the industry to assist with reaching the stated goal. The top initiatives that surfaced from Task Force 20/20 were to develop programs and efforts to serve as models for many motivated groups to use and to lower costs for implementation. Existing and effective programs were enhanced to reach the most people possible and are referred to as “Models of Success” programs.

“NSSF will provide an interim report on the progress of Task Force 20/20 Models of Success projects later this year,” said Melissa Schilling, NSSF director of recruitment and retention.

Projects designed to increase hunting and recreational shooting participation that are gaining traction can be found in Florida, Texas, Michigan, Alabama and several other states.

“We are currently reviewing and selecting new Models of Success programs now to maintain the momentum of our outreach efforts,” said Schilling.
