On today’s episode, Ruth speaks with Dominic Thompson and Levi Sanderson, about the advisory board, 2024 rule changes, and more!
Dominic Thompson started shooting NRL22 in 2018 when a friend of his introduced him to the sport. He was an active duty Army medic who wanted to find the same camaraderie the military has but within the shooting community. He loved that folks were willing to coach you and help you as a new competitor. Since actively competing, he became a Match Director for NRL22-Ft. Campbell and serves as the NRL22 National Coordinator. As a match director, he gets real enjoyment out of seeing new competitors enjoying themselves and seasoned competitors getting better. His goal is to continue to coach, guide and mentor competitors and continue to grow this sport.
Levi Sanderson has enjoyed plinking and shooting since he was a kid. Growing up in South Dakota he spent a lot of time hunting, but 10 years ago he jumped into the competitive shooting sports. In 2018 he discovered NRL22 and fell in love with the discipline and community. Now he is actively involved in growing the sport ranging from helping new shooters to managing national NRL22 leaderboards. Along with hosting a monthly match at Strategic Edge just outside of Nashville, he also competes almost every weekend. He loves working with and learning from competitors of all skill levels, but especially enjoys seeing new competitors grasp previously unknown concepts and get hooked on the sport.
