FAIRFAX, Va. –-(Ammoland.com)- The National Rifle Association is pleased to announce Remington Arms Company, LLC as the title sponsor to the 2014 NRA National Rifle & Pistol Championships. Considered the top shooting sports event in the country, this year’s matches will be held July 7 through August 10 2014 at Camp Perry, Ohio, and in Bristol, Indiana.
“Remington is one of the most trusted names in the shooting industry and has been involved with the National Rifle & Pistol Championships for a very long time. They are an excellent sponsor for our National Matches,” said Director of NRA Competitive Shooting Dennis Willing.
“Their title sponsorship, which began last year, shows their commitment to the shooting sports and will allow us to help the matches become more popular than ever before.”
The National Matches, a tradition at Camp Perry since 1907, are divided into six phases of competition: Pistol, Smallbore 3-Position, Smallbore Prone, High Power, High Power Mid-Range and High Power Long Range. For the third time in history, the National Matches’ smallbore phase will be held at another location.
The 2014 and 2015 Smallbore 3-Position and Smallbore Prone championships will move to the Wa Ke De’ Rifle Range in Bristol, Indiana, to accommodate the upcoming 2015 World Palma Rifle Championships at Camp Perry.
Competitors range from all ages and experience levels and awards are distributed similarly. Novice shooters, Olympic medalists, law enforcement officers, military personnel, and international competitors all shoot alongside each other during the national championships.
“Remington enjoys a proud history with the National Matches at Camp Perry going back to the 1900’s,” said Team Remington Captain Ken Roxburgh. “This year we’re returning as the title sponsor of the 2014 NRA National Matches and are providing special sponsorship, support, trophies and awards for the National High Power Championships and the National Long Range High Power Championships. When it comes to promoting participation in shooting sports, Remington does it all.”
