As I’ve previously mentioned, shooting is a great sport for those with disabilities. The Illinois State Rifle Association and the Vaughan Chapter, Paralyzed Veterans of America, have teamed up to offer the first of what will be many shooting events for the disabled:
ISRA Event Announcement
August 7 & 8 – First Annual Chicago Vaughan PVA 600+ Air Rifle Match
Inaugural Regional Indoor Disabled Shooting Competition for 2010
ISRA Past President James Vinopal is an active supporter of shooting programs for the disabled, with a special emphasis on coaching veterans. He says: “I am pleased to announce a new alliance in the shooting world, the Illinois State Rifle Association and the Vaughan Chapter, Paralyzed Veterans of America. The premier event of this coalition will be a two-day air rifle competition in August this year and, hopefully, for many years to come. Sanctioned by the National Rifle Association, this event becomes part of a national series to promote and support competitive shooting among persons with physical disabilities. I strongly urge your support and participation in this program.”
This competition is open to all individuals with physical disabilities, using the NRA guidelines for classification.
Daily Relays: 8:30AM, 11AM, 1:30PM
