International Teams

The DCRA International Teams Sub-Committee has presented to the Executive Committee a revised statement of policies and priorities regarding International Teams. Following considerable discussion, prior to and at the Executive Meeting in April and by a further mail ballot in May 2009, the Executive Committee approved the statement as a general framework of DCRA policy regarding Canadian International Teams. This policy is now in effect, with Executive Committee approval required for funding allocations.

2017 F-Class World Championships

 

The Dominion of Canada Rifle Association is pleased to announce the appointment of Eric Bisson of Cochrane, AB as Captain of the Canadian F-Class team for the 2017 F-Class World Championships, being held at Connaught Ranges in Ottawa.

Eric began competitive shooting at the age of fifteen. He shot small bore and air rifle and was very successful as a member of the Alberta Team. He soon began to travel and made the Junior National Team; and in the following year he made the Canadian Senior National Team, and ultimately a spot on the Olympic training team. In meeting his wife Heather, starting a family and a construction business competitive shooting fell to the wayside. Eric still continued to be an avid hunter during this period and even began guiding big game hunts.

About 5 years ago Eric decided to join the Rosebud Shooting Club and it was there that he got hooked on long range full bore shooting. He was soon in the pursuit of building competitive rifles, learning as much as he could about precision reloading and reading the wind. He has achieved success on provincial, national and international levels; Eric has won several provincial titles in the F-Open class and is the current 2013 Western Canadian F-Open champion. Eric was captain and shooting member of the winning team in both 2012 and 2013 at the Western Canadian Championships, and proudly represented Canada as a member of the Canadian 2013 FCWC team in Raton, NM.

Any F-Class shooters interested in being considered for the 2017 FCWC team should contact Eric at fcwc2017captain@gmail.com for further information on the selection program.
