To all Creedmoor, Mid Range and interested BPCR shooters:
You have received this e-mail to inform you and give you some background, and an
explanation of the petition that is attached to this email
Over the last couple of weeks many of us involved in the above mentioned sports
have been caucusing about our grievances concerning the shortcomings of the
NRA competitions department and the NRA Whittington Center surrounding our
National Matches and BPTR World Championships. We have come to the
collective decision that a petition addressing these grievances be drafted
and forwarded to all of you for your signature and request that you mail it
to each of the addresses in the heading as soon as possible.
There is a previous edition of this petition that is circulating that was written to match
the tone of some of the conversations taking place at the time, but it was felt to be a
little harsh by many of the shooters. So a new version was written with the much
appreciated assistance of Al Sledge, and Michael Rix.
After receiving the petition, should you have any questions or concerns
please feel free to get in touch with any of the following members of this
caucus listed below that had a hand in the creation or writing of this petition.
There are many others who have had a hand in it, but I tried to select active and interested shooters from different geographical areas of the country for this list.
The petition is attached to this email as a word document, and should open
up easily in a printable form.
We believe that we will never be heard if we do not speak.
With that thought, I ask you to have a look at the petition, print, sign, and send it
if you agree with it, and then take a minute to write a personal letter to go along with it.
Thank you, and shoot well,
