Team slots for the 10th Annual Shooting Industry Masters sold out in record time. The mid-April Early Bird registration deadline filled the match to capacity, with 80 teams taking advantage of discounted entry fees. All stage sponsorships were also reserved.
“The response from companies throughout the industry to the Masters has been fantastic!” said Randy Molde, Masters chairman. “The buzz created for the 2012 event has been building since the first of the year, but filling team and sponsor slots three months before the match is an unprecedented surprise.”
Sponsored by FMG Publications, the highly anticipated two-day match will return to the Rockcastle Shooting Center, Park Mammoth Resort in Park City, Ky., July 20-21.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Masters has grown steadily, with record-breaking attendance each year and an increasing number of side matches. Industry support for the event is also evidenced by a record number of sponsorships for 2012, and major contributions of raffle prizes.
“New teams and sponsors join the event each year, as word spreads throughout the industry that the Masters is the ‘must-attend’ event, for networking and just plain fun,” said Elizabeth O’Neill, Masters coordinator. “Additionally, the Masters supports First Shots, which benefits all our businesses.”
Event and shotgun cage sponsorships are still available. Contact Shari LeGate, Masters event manager, at email@example.com for more information. Raffle prizes also are still being accepted, with all raffle proceeds benefiting First Shots. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
For the 2013 Masters, FMG encourages companies to enter their teams by SHOT Show to guarantee a spot.
