Up to 200 competitors expected at Patrol Rifle Competition in Detroit
Novi, Michigan - In less than a week, almost 200 competitors from across the nation will gather at Multi-Lakes Conservation Association for the 2014 National Patrol Rifle Competition. While the competition promises to unleash the same rugged courses of fire as before, there is a new element to the mix — the NRA.
So this weekend, on the outskirts of Detroit Rock City, NRAblog will report live from the Patrol Rifle Championships with a play-by-play update on all the action. See the shots, share the stories and get feel for how they do things in the Wolverine State.
Starting bright an early with registration at 8:00am, Operations Manager Sgt. Brian Wojcik (Ret) expects the crowd to be the biggest in years.
"We're trying to reach out to the law enforcement community," said Wojcik. "We've been talking to a number of groups, visiting a lot of events, and letting the everyday sheriffs, constables, patrolmen and officers know that we have their back.
"Having the NRA cover the Conference and Competition has been a big help. Hopefully this is the beginning of a long relationship."
First held in 2000, the championship has seen winners from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. But this year expectations are even bigger.
"The way things are going now, the sky is the limit."
