2022 TSRA Indoor Rifle Championships
September 17 @ 8:00 am – September 18 @ 5:00 pm
HOWDY ALL –
I hope that this note finds you well and you are staying cool out there…Texas has certainly turned up the heat! It is with great excitement that I announce the 2022 Texas State Rifle Association’s Annual State Indoor Rifle Championship is officially set for the weekend of September 17-18 in Rosenberg (Fort Bend County). The official match bulletin is attached.
For those unfamiliar with our TSRA State Championships, qualification is not required to participate in this match nor is there an age restriction. Sub Juniors are welcome and encouraged to participate! As the TSRA is a NRA State-Affiliated Organization, this match is registered as a NRA State Championship and will operate according to the NRA Smallbore and Air Rifle Rulebooks. This should not be a problem for those use to USA Shooting regulation. The main difference will be the order in which the Smallbore 3P event is fired and the time-limits (see match bulletin).
After receiving such great feedback, we will continue the NCAA Match Format offering 2 events – Smallbore 3-Position (60 shots) and 60 Shots Standing Air Rifle. Participation in both events is not required. For competitors participating in both events, you will be eligible to compete for the Top Gun Award, which is based on your two-gun aggregate. This Championship Match is a great opportunity for junior shooters to experience what a NCAA and USA Shooting match environment is like and makes a good addition to your shooting resume.
This year, registration can be made online via Sign-Up Genius! Please read the Match Bulletin and this email thoroughly prior to heading to Sign-Up Genius for making match entry, as they will answer most of the questions that you may have.
Our last two State Indoor Rifle Championships have been at match capacity! To accommodate additional competitors, this year I have added a relay for each event to increase our match capacity from 45 to 60! When making registration on Sign-Up Genius, you will be able to see each relay offering and the current lane availability. After registering online, I will review your registration and send you an email confirmation with details on how to make payment of match fees. Your match fees will then secure your squadding. In order to create a more competitive environment, competitor lane assignments will be drawn prior to shooters entering the range on match day.
Please note that I will be out of town June 30-July 7 which means anyone registering during this time frame will receive their confirmation upon my return, however do not let that stop you from registering as this match typically fill up quickly.
For those “local” competitors who live within an hour to hour and a half of Rosenberg, I encourage if possible to register for the early Saturday relay or later Sunday relays so that we can accommodate those traveling a distance. Last year, we had competitors come as far as Lubbock, Louisiana, and Oklahoma! Texas residency is not required for participation in this match, only for competing for the Overall State Champion Awards. This year I have added a separate “Visiting Champion” Award to accommodate our increase in out-of-state competitors. All competitors are eligible to compete for age classification awards.
