Tandemkross Joins Growing List of NSSF Rimfire Challenge Repeat Sponsors
NEWTOWN, Conn. — New Hampshire-based firearms accessory creator Tandemkross has once again agreed to join the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) as a sponsor of the NSSF Rimfire Challenge. Specializing in USA-made components, magazines, sights, optics and other accessories, Tandemkross has renewed its sponsorship for the 2015 Rimfire Challenge series at the Bronze level.
Now in its second year as an NSSF program, the Rimfire Challenge focuses on competition with .22-caliber rifles and pistols. Formerly known as the Ruger Rimfire Challenge, matches are specifically designed to introduce new shooters to competitive shooting in an exciting, family friendly format. Rimfire Challenge matches are open to shooters of all ages and shooting experience levels, with events conducted at ranges nationwide. The match format emphasizes safety, fun and ease of access for newcomers.
“We could not be more pleased to have Tandemkross join us again as a sponsor of the Rimfire Challenge events,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Manager, Shooting Promotions. “The company and its people have made an important connection with these up-and-coming shooters, and their sponsorship renewal clearly demonstrates their commitment to the continuing success of both the Rimfire Challenge series of matches and the competitors.”
“Tandemkross is excited about sponsoring another year of the NSSF Rimfire Challenge,” said Bryan Haaker, the company’s Business Development Manager. “I’ve never seen a sport where the competitors are so kind and supportive to each other, and we were really touched by this. We believe in an ecosystem, as opposed to a marketplace, the difference being that in an ecosystem, companies have a responsibility to give back to the community and the people within that community. We see contributing and sponsoring to this sport as our way of giving back and saying ‘Thank you.'”
Additional sponsorship opportunities for NSSF’s 2015 Rimfire Challenge program are available. Please contact Zach Snow, NSSF Manager of Shooting Promotions, at 203-426-1320 ext. 224 for information.
