It is with much sadness that we post about the passing of Scot “Bubba” Cook. He passed away in early November and leaves a hole in our community that will not be soon filled. Scot has been a true ambassador of practical shooting for many years and has introduced many new shooters to the sport.
A former Virginia/Maryland section coordinator and skilled revolver and Open shooter, Scot has brought friendship, humor and competition to his fellow shooters. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
From Bill Duda, Area 8 Championship Match Director
Planning for the 2016 Area 8 Championship is already well underway. Please see the Championship page for more information.
This year, we have partnered with ARIDWEAR as our Official Shooting Jersey. My staff will be sporting these very nice shooting jerseys as the Official Staff Shirts and I am making them available for purchase in the color scheme shown here. ***We will still be providing a very nice match shirt paid for by your match fee, these are additional….. This Year****
Since this is not a money making scheme, I am offering them at cost in the store on Practiscore. You will pick them up at registration when you show up to shoot. We will also offer them for sale at the match, but since I then have to ship them they will cost more if purchased that way.
