Doug Koenig, competition director of the Sportsman’s Team Challenge has announced the return of Bass Pro Shops as the Title Match Sponsor. The match, celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2017, will be held at the Heartland Public Shooting Park in Grand Island, NE. Match dates are July 20-22, 2017, and it's open to the general public, industry, as well as competitive shooters of all skill levels. You can register beginning February 1, 2017, at www.stcnationals.com.

Koenig said, “It’s exciting to have Bass Pro Shops support again as we celebrate a special milestone this year. We’ve added a variety of unique side matches and clinics along with random draws for commemorative firearms.” Koenig added, “We had a terrific turnout last year, but it was the warm reception the entire Grand Island community bestowed upon us that made our decision to return an easy one.”

John Acosta, director of marketing, customer acquisition for Bass Pro Shops said, “Doug has been a brand ambassador for Bass Pro Shops for several years and we are excited to partner together again in 2017 to promote shooting in a family-centric format with the Sportsman's Team Challenge. It is important for us to continue to advance the participation of shooting sports to the next generation of outdoorsmen and women. Bass Pro Shops is thrilled to celebrate the 30th year of the Sportsman’s Team Challenge, and we congratulate them on such a successful event.”

New this year for match sponsors will be the addition of a vendor row; competitors will be able to view new products to enhance their shooting experience at the range while supporting match sponsors. More announcements will be made regarding special VIPs attending and activities planned.

In 2017, the Sportsman’s Team Challenge will celebrate 30 years of attracting juniors, newcomers, families and competitive shooters who continue to enjoy its popularity and rich tradition. The match is a two- or three-person team event, which combines multi-discipline shooting competition of a rifle, pistol and shotgun.
