SHACKLESFORD, VA –-( Newly minted Team Captain Brandon Wright of Team International Training, Inc. (ITI) and fellow teammate Gary Byerly shot strong this past weekend at the IDPA Carolina Cup, held in Oxford, NC June 16-18, 2011, bringing home two First Place Class titles for their team.

In an arena of over 350 competitors, Wright and Byerly were able to stand out, securing First Place SSP Master (Fourth Overall) and First Place CDP Master (5th Overall) respectively. This brings the teams overall total to 11 class titles for the 2011 competitive shooting season.

“This year’s match was really straight forward. Frank Glover did a great job in his overall stage designs and his staff was top notch,” commented Wright.

“One of the things I feel was a big part in my game were the Rudy Project glasses. I was able to wear clear lenses all day and no matter what the environment (in a car or van, in the woods or out in the sun); the glasses gave me the right tint for the stage. Having the Rudy Project transitional lenses continue to help my game.”

“The Carolina Cup staff put together what I believe to be their best match yet, comprised of sixteen unique tests of skills that covered the entire practical shooting skillset,” commented Byerly.

“Quality practice and preparation is the key to finishing well here. With the number of great shooters in attendance the smallest misstep can drop you several places. My consistency paid off with an excellent finish that I’m very proud of. Congratulations to the Division winners and thank you to the excellent staff.”

Byerly can be seen competing at the Virginia State IDPA at Kettlefoot, held at the Kettlefoot Rod and Gun Club in Bristol, TN June 25, 2011. Wright will next be competing at the Pro-Am Championship, held at the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof, Florida July 15-17, 2011.
