Morristown, TN –-(Ammoland.com)- Vortex Optics is proud to announce today its sponsorship of the inaugural Starlight 3 Gun Championship presented by Timney Triggers.
Set for September 23-26 at the Peacemaker National Training Center in Gerrardstown, West Virginia, the event will pit the top three-gun shooters from around the country in the only national three-gun competition shot exclusively at night.
The Starlight 3 Gun Championship and the National Rifle Association's World Shooting Championship will hold their events simultaneously at Peacemaker National. This unique combining of events enables top shooters to compete in a pair of events at a single venue while offering spectators the opportunity to see those top shooters competing across virtually every shooting discipline – all for record-setting amounts of cash and prizes in a unique day-and-night setting.
“Our goal is to popularize the concept of athletic shooting competitions by making them entertaining to shooters, non-shooters and spectators – and to do that, we're amping up the entertainment value without sacrificing safety,” says Starlight 3 Gun organizer, Jim Shepherd.
“We're going to add in fog, thumping music, strobe lights, pyrotechnics, and a true ‘event' atmosphere. It won't impact the shooters, but it will showcase the skills our shooting professionals have right now. Young people who see these events will want to become shooting pros because they'll see a sport that integrates shooting skills with athleticism.”
Sponsorship opportunities and a limited number of shooting slots still remain for the event. Three gun shooters and companies wanting to take advantage of the unique opportunity can learn more at www.starlight3gun.com.
