The 2012 Indiana Highpower State Championship Series concluded September 29-30 at Camp Atterbury, with the Across the Course (200 to 600 yard) and Long Range and F-Class (1000 yard) State Championships. The Championships are comprised of a series of matches, encompassing the scope of Highpower competition. Shooters compete for a place on the Perpetual Trophies, and for Indiana State Championships. Indiana State Champions are the winners for each classification and phase of highpower shooting, and must be residents of the state. Match Winner, High Service Rifle, and High Junior awards are presented to the High Scorer regardless of residence. Trophies are on display on site at the Championships. Match Winners receive a framed print of the updated trophy that is theirs to keep.
We were blessed with terrific weather for the entire series. Note several Father and Son teams winning awards, as well as a great Coach and Junior team for the 100 yard course. This State Championship Series concludes a very successful, challenging and enjoyable Highpower season with matches in all parts of the State, shooters coming together at Camp Perry from all over Indiana for Service Rifle, Junior Teams, and Long Range, and developing opportunities for junior shooters. We have great momentum going forward to 2013! Congratulations and THANKS to ALL who made this a Great Highpower Season!
