Response to AAFTA National Championship 2017 in November at Phoenix Airgun Club

For the Benchrest Nationals. Four of us forced all of our benchrest equipment in to a rental Buick Quest van and we took turns driving to Phoenix. It was a very long trip but we drove straight thru and 48 hours later we pulled into our hotel. We had a great time at the Benchrest event and we attended a dinner at the same Golf club I believe on Sunday night. The match was run very professionally and the dinner was excellent with some very nice toys for the top three shooters in each class besides the medals. We arrived on Thursday and the Match started Friday if my memory serves me correctly. I believe the match registration with dinner included cost was around $125. I shot three classes (Springer, Open, and HV Varmit) I haven't missed a FT National since 2007. I would love to go and want to go, but as Billy Dick said it will cost about $1000 to make this trip from my neck of the woods and would expect that cost for anyone on the eastern seaboard that travels with 3 to four other shooters. Flying is a option but plan on a higher cost if you fly. I'm not counting this match out but I might have to find a part time job if I attend the Crosman event, PYA challenge, and the FT Nationals. I do feel the hosting club should keep the AFFTA National tradition and award five places if participation warrants. I glad you guys on the west coast are getting a travel break this year.
