Kenny Haupricht – Northeast Regional Director
TBD – Northeast Regional Calendar Manager
Northeast State Silhouette Representatives:
2023-2024 Northeast Regional Initiatives (Preliminary)
The Northeast Regional Director will work together with the Northeast State Silhouette Representatives to establish 2023-2024 Northeast Regional Initiatives to promote the growth of Rifle Silhouette in the region. The Northeast Regional Director will also work with other NASSA Regional Directors when appropriate to leverage resources where mutual cooperation is beneficial.
Since Kenny Haupricht. has just taken up his position as the Northeast Regional Director, we took a quote from his NASSA Northeast Region Press Release on where his priorities are at this point in time:
“The Northeast Region has a long running history in the sport of silhouette with multiple ranges hosting National Championship Matches in past years. The Northeast Region hosts some of the highest attended silhouette matches on a yearly basis as well as hosting the National Silhouette Championships in Pennsylvania on the rotational schedule for High Power, Smallbore and Lever Gun Silhouette. The sport of Rifle Silhouette is strong in the Northeast and continues to grow with multiple new clubs hosting matches in recent years.”
“My Goals for the Northeast Region is to attract more new shooters to the sport as well as introduce more junior shooters to the sport. Concentration will also be on sponsorships and promotion of local, state, regional and national matches.”
Regional Club Match Calendar
Google Calendar software (or equivalent) will be developed by the NASSA Implementation Team for all NASSA Regions to utilize this software for listing club matches.
You will be able to access the calendars here on each Regions/Clubs webpage as shown with the example link below and the image on the right.
