Since 1967, the PA 1000 Yard Benchrest Club has been holding sanctioned competitions of long range benchrest shooting. Owing a lot of its history to the nearby municipality of Williamsport Pennsylvania, it has become known as the "Williamsport Club". We are proud to be the birthplace of 1000 yard shooting. Our club holds ten regular sanctioned matches each season, none any closer than two weeks apart. The 1000 Yard World Open is always held here in July of each year, and also several "Fun Shoot" weekends, before and after the season. Classes fired are Light Gun on Saturdays and Heavy Gun on Sundays. References to these are made repeatedly throughout the site and definitions of each may be found in the rules section.

The 2018 Original PA 1000 Yard Benchrest Club World Open will be held on July 14 & 15. The application for the match can be found on the World Open 2018 tab, under the sponsor list. It can also be found where ALL other forms are on the site under the Club Info-History tab.
We have a TON of prizes all ready for this year (Check out the vendor list). These vendors are VERY generous with their donations and it is appreciated if you would look to them for your future purchases.
Applications can be sent in any time. The fee is the same as last year ($85.00 per class or $170.00 for both LG & HG classes). I hope to see you there! At least stop by and check out the new facility, it's AMAZING!

2018-01-22 - ***IMPORTANT INFORMATION***
Please make sure that you review the Rule book!
ESPECIALLY Rule 9.1:
Our lease binds us to the requirement that the member MUST FIRST come to the home of Larry Plants land owner, or call the preceding evening (570-995-9143) and inform him that the member intends to use the range. This arrangement should eliminate the risk of Mr. Plants and others inadvertently being within the danger zone of the range.
Any member violating this rule may face suspension or expulsion from the club!!!
