The NRL is excited to announce the NRL22 National Championship presented by Season Title Bergara USA in Nehawka, NE. Nebraska is a terrific location to host this season’s championship while the private range provides an outstanding venue to host up to 250 competitors with a diverse course of fire.

Where: Nehawka, Nebraska

When: May 28-30, 2021

How to qualify: Chaz Macrander will be able to host 250 of the best NRL22 shooters in the country in Nehawka, Nebraska May 28-30, 2021. Interest surveys have gone out to your local MD’s to gauge how many competitors are interested from each club. If we have over 250 interested then each club will be awarded a percentage of match slots according to its membership numbers and monthly participation in comparison with the rest of the nations clubs. Local MD’s should utilize invites for the shooters who have the highest scores in that club (limited to the top 3 scores for the season’s local matches).

Event details: Each participant will get an official 20/21 NRL22 Championship Match T-shirt, other swag, 2 lunches, and 1 dinner at the awards ceremony. The course of fire will be at least 270 rounds fired ~24 stages. Skills learned in the 20/21 season will be utilized throughout the COF, but we will not be limited to 100 yards. Expect engagements to be from 50 yards to 450 yards with plenty of engagements between 100 and 200 yards. Magazine changes may be required, but the same good old fashion fun will present with the stages being just as cleanable. Gear restrictions will not be the same for all stages as per the NRL22 rules. Some stages may have no gear restrictions and some may only allow you to have one piece of equipment in accordance with this seasons NRL22 rules. We will have targets down range for most every distance that we intend to shoot during the match on Friday for sight in.

Trophies / Prize table: Trophies will be distributed for the top shooters in all five classes. The prize table will be walked in order of finish for each class. Each class will walk according to its attendance. As an example, if we have 90 Open class shooters, 35 Young Guns class shooters, 30 Ladies class shooters, 15 Old Gun shooters, 25 Base class shooters, and 10 Air Rifle shooters, then the order will be 1st place for each class in the order of Open, then Young Guns, then Ladies, then Old Guns, then Base, and finally Air Rifle class. Then 2nd place and so on.

Cost: $250 for Open, Base, Old Guns, Ladies, and Air Rifle. $175 for Young Guns.

See you in Nebraska!
