Every year the US National Rifle Team has to raise funds to assist the members in getting to some of the big matches of the year. The money is divided amongst the Team, Under 25’s and Veterans. Because we have lost funding from the NRA we are only able to have match fees and some team jerseys paid for. We used to have travel expenses and trading novelties paid as well. Especially for our juniors this can get difficult to get to matches across the country. Our main goal for 2014 is to get members to US and Canadian Nationals this fall. In 2015 it is to get funds for the selected Palma Team members to The World Championships in 2015. Our juniors have done really well in the past with bake sales and with the help of donations from Berger Bullets to sell. So as a member of the Team myself I am asking for your help in our fund raising. The Worlds will be held in the US at Camp Perry which makes travel a little easier for some but lodging, etc is still expensive. There will be countries from all over the world participating. A tradition is to trade jerseys, pins, patches, hats you name it. We have not had the money to have those items recently. Not to mention even lodging for team members. For me personally I would love to see that we can contribute to this tradition with bells on. We are the host country for 2015 so I want to shine!!
