Team International Training, Inc. (ITI) members performed strongly this past weekend at the USPSA Area 8 Championship, held at the Fredericksburg R&P Club in Fredericksburg, VA August 9th – 12th, 2012, as well as the NC State IDPA Championship, held at the Watauga Gun Club IDPA in Boone, NC August 11th, 2012.

At the USPSA Area 8 match, Team Captain Brandon Wright finished 1st Master and 3rd Overall Production at 97%.

“I would like to thank the match director and all the staff at the Area 8 Championship. With the weather being a factor and lingering thunderstorms, they toughed it out for us competitors,” remarked Wright. “I feel good about my performance at this match and look forward to the next opportunity to test my skills. Having trust in my equipment and ammunition allows me to focus on the stage at hand and execute my plan for success. Congratulations to my teammates for a stellar performance at the NC State IDPA match.”

While Wright was competing at the Area 8 match, teammates Morgan Allen and Gary Byerly dominated the NC State IDPA Championships. Allen won his fourth straight ESP Division win and finished High Overall at this match while Byerly took 1st Master in the CDP Division and 3rd Overall.

“It’s always a pleasure to shoot with friends and do well, especially in front of a home crowd.  I’d like to thank the match Safety Officers and the crew for putting on this year’s match,” Allen said. ”Without our volunteers, we’d not have events like this one.  Congrats to my teammates Gary Byerly for his outstanding showing at this match, and the same to Brandon Wright for his finish at the Area 8 USPSA Championship.”

“In visiting Watauga Gun Club for the last 10 years, I’ve come to expect beautiful scenery, friendly Safety Officers and unique stages. This year was no exception,” commented Byerly. “Ten stages with 181 competitors made for an exciting day. With IDPA Nationals on the horizon, this was a great way to identify skill sets to concentrate on. Congratulations to my teammate Morgan Allen on his outstanding performance and to all the Division Champions at the NC State IDPA Championship.”

Team ITI would like to thank some their sponsors for their support: Atlanta Arms and Ammo, FrogLube, G2 Gemini, Laura Burgess Marketing and Rudy Project USA.

Wright will next compete at the 2012 IPSC Nationals, held at the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof, FL September 12th – 16th, 2012. Allen, Byerly and Wright can be seen competing next at the 2012 IDPA National Championship, held at The Range in Oxford, North Carolina September 19th – 22nd, 2012.
