1 October 1, 2014 The Yard IBS Nationals have come and gone. Last weekend 9-26 & 9-27 Memphis Sport Shooting Association hosted the National Event. Seventy shooters turned out to enjoy the mild late summer weather and join in on some of the most fierce Benchrest competition in the recent past. While the turnout was a bit lower than the last 3-4 years, the three full relays enjoyed temperatures in the mideighties with mostly sunny skies. The mirage showed up later in the morning but didn t seem to effect the competition. Shooting began at 8:00 AM on both days, with non-stop competition continuing until mid-afternoon. When the smoke cleared on Friday, Bo Wass prevailed as the Light Gun Winner. Saturday s competition proved to be just as competitive as Friday s shootout, but with Darrell Dacus being proclaimed the winner of Heavy Gun Honors. However, after the final tally of the score and group aggregates, Ryan Hunt topped the field of competitors as the IBS 600 Yard National Champion. After finishing very near the top for three years running, Ryan shot an impressive combined ranking of 21 to achieve the honors. But, Darrell Dacus and Steve Wilson were hot on his heels with rankings of 23 & 25 respectively. To emphasize how fierce the competition was, a few statistics follow. Total Targets Shot 1128 Sub 2 Groups Fired 210 Groups Fired Less than Sub 1 Groups Fired 11 Small Group (Ben Peters) Best Single Target 50 Score / Group (Donna Matthews) Perfect Scores of These are impressive numbers and a testament to how hard it is to win now days when Mother Nature cooperates even with the 600 yards of landscape.
