Free Entry to 2016 World Shoot

If you’ve never attended a previous World Skeet Championship, you could be the lucky shooter who gets a FREE entry on behalf of your state or zone.  To encourage first-time participants in the 2016 World Skeet Championships, NSSA is offering a free entry to the Main Events for one person from each U.S. state and each NSSA Zone.

The complimentary entry applies to the main event entry fees for the 12 Gauge, 20 Gauge, 28 Gauge, .410 Bore, and Doubles events.  Any extra games, purses, or options, as well as travel-related expenses and ammunition, are the responsibility of the shooter.

You may apply for your state’s or zone’s entry ONLY if you have never attended a World Shoot and you are an active member who shot targets in the 2016 shooting year.  To be eligible for the Virginia State Entry, you must shoot one event at the Virginia State Shoot, August 17-21st, and to be eligible for the Zone 2 entry, you must shoot one event at the Zone 2 shoot at Loch Raven, August 12-14th.
