NBRSA Announces Multi-Distance, Multi-Discipline 'Hall of Masters'

In the 100/200 Benchrest game, perhaps the most prestigious distinction a shooter can earn is entry into the Benchrest Hall of Fame. Now that concept has been extended to all bench disciplines and distances. The NBRSA has announced a new program — the NBRSA ‘Hall of Masters’. It will recognize all NBRSA National and Regional shoots including 100, 200, 300, 600, 1000-yard, Hunter Class and any new disciplines that are added. The program embraces Europe and any venue, worldwide, where NBRSA events are held.

‘Hall of Masters’ point accumulation will include NBRSA match performances from the past. The program will retroactive as far back as the NBRSA can obtain valid match reports. In other words, if you won an NBRSA match last year, or even ten years ago, you’ve earned ‘Hall of Masters’ points already. The point system will be similar to the existing short-range Hall of Fame except all yardages and aggregates at NBRSA nationals will be counted. You can also accumulate a maximum of three (3) points at any Regional match. Only NBRSA points will be used. (By contrast, both IBS AND NBRSA Nat’l Comp points count for the 100/200 BR Hall of Fame.)
