Park, City, KY., –-(Ammoland.com)- Rockcastle Shooting Center, America’s ultimate shooting destination resort will host the 2013 IPSC Pan American Shotgun Championship June 27 – 30, 2013.
The Level 4 IPSC competition will attract competitors from eight countries including the United States to compete in four divisions, Open, Standard, Standard Manual and Modified.
Match Director Larry Houck has designed 24 stages that will challenge the fundamentals of marksmanship competitors have acquired through the years, while adding a risk reward element.
Houck said, “The infrastructure of the 2,000 acre resort is so unique; I’m incorporating the shadows of the tree canopy, the open hay and cornfields and the rocky nature trails to allow competitors to solve the course of fire based on their abilities.”
A variety of targets set as close as seven yards for birdshot, 35 yards for buckshot and 60 yards for slugs will await competitors using static clay birds, static steel plates, IPSC poppers, cardboard classic targets and include 6” steel circles atop stakes.
Nick Noble, CEO of Rockcastle commented, “The International community has embraced Rockcastle Shooting Center since we first hosted the successful event in 2010. Noble added, “The diversity of shooting disciplines offered throughout the resort and the amenities of our lodge, restaurant and winery, adds up to an ideal vacation holdover for the Europeans to stay and compete in the upcoming Rockcastle/Pan American 3-Gun Challenge.”
Opening and Closing ceremonies have been planned to include local dignitaries, a parade of international flags and the opportunity for shooting ambassadors from Russia to Brazil to enjoy the camaraderie at an unprecedented return of the IPSC Pan American Shotgun Championship. Local 4-H Shooting Sports chapters will be volunteering their time to reset targets.
