2011 NRFTC Hosted By Crosman Announced

The field target world descends upon Bloomfield once again this year as the Northeast Field Target Championship Hosted by Crosman takes place July 8-10 right here on the corporate campus.

“We first hosted this event last year and it was a big hit among veteran field target competitors and those new to the sport,” said Mark DeBoard, Shooting Services Manager for Crosman.  Competitors traveled from all over the mid-Atlantic, midwest and northeast, and the 2010 champion, Harold Rushton, came all the way from Alabama.

This year the competition expands from a one-day event to two days.  A one-day pistol competition has also been added.  ”Folks who are new to the sport are welcome to come out and participate in a single-day shoot,” added DeBoard.  The exciting Quigley Bucket Shoot will be back and should the winner compete with a Crosman-provided Challenger, they’ll take home a Paul Bishop Custom Challenger.

Sanctioned by the American Airgun Field Target Association (AAFTA), the event will be conducted according to the rules for the 2011 AAFTA Nationals.  Ray and Hans Apelles will serve as Match Directors to ensure the event comes off without a hitch.  ”The Crosman campus, located in western New York, provides for a deceiving field target course.  It’s difficult enough to challenge national competitors yet forgiving enough for rookies to feel good about their effort,” said Ray Apelles.
