The final opportunity for athletes to earn Paralympic quotas will take place here in the United States when USA Shooting hosts the final International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Shooting World Cup of the season November 3-7 at the home of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU) in Fort Benning, Georgia.
Starting on July 10, 2016 and ending July 18, 2016, the Championships, including the International Postal Team matches, will be fired over ten days of competition to reduce costs for the competitors. The Metric and Conventional Championships will be combined into a 3-Position Championship. Metric Prone was taken out of the program and the 50 Yard Match was added to the Conventional Prone Championship (6400). This action was in response to the numerous prone competitors’ requests. A winner will be selected from the 3-Position Championship (Metric and Conventional) and the Conventional Prone Champion as our National Smallbore Rifle Champion.
The Bianchi Cup, presented by MidwayUSA, will have a format change for 2016. Everyone will complete the normal 1920 aggregate. The top individuals will compete in a second Championship Event to determine the Cup winners. This change will not affect anything won in the first aggregate and the only competitors affected are the top individuals.
