RCSA Rimfire Challenge

The 2020 RCSA Rimfire Challenge Michigan Championship has been canceled.  If you have already booked online for this event your refunds are being processed.


The Rockford Sportsman’s Club hosted over one hundred entrants for the 9th annual RCSA Michigan Rimfire Challenge Championship last weekend. The weather was cool, but the dry weather was appreciated by everyone. Shooters from seven different states participated, coming from as far as California and Hawaii.

The top shooter was Nate Gibson, a Junior (13-16) shooter from Iowa, who completed the eight stage match with his Limited Class equipment in 81.84 seconds. Nate closely followed his Limited score with an Open score of 83.48 seconds. Congratulations, Nate! Great Shooting!

Thanks to the twenty national and local sponsors, including Ruger, Tandemcross, Hogue, Timney Triggers, Marsh Custom Knives, and others. Their generosity assured that all shooters received a door prize! Thanks also to all the Volunteers who made the match happen.

Scores sorted by Class/Category and Overall Rank are attached. Many thanks to all who participated.”
