Erich Mietenkorte – Northeast Regional Director
TBD – Northeast Regional Calendar Manager
Northwest State Silhouette Representatives:
2023-2024 Northwest Regional Initiatives (Preliminary)
The Northwest Regional Director will work together with the Northwest State Silhouette Representatives to establish 2023-2024 Northwest Regional Initiatives to promote the growth of Rifle Silhouette in the region. The Northwest Regional Director will also work with other NASSA Regional Directors when appropriate to leverage resources where mutual cooperation is beneficial.
Since Erich Mietenkorte has just taken up his position as the Northwest Regional Director, we can take a quote from his NASSA Press Release on where his priorities are at this point in time:
“The Northwest Region has a long history of having some of the best matches silhouette has to offer. I look forward to working with the incredible individuals who have kept the sport of silhouette strong for all to enjoy. By working together and coordinating ongoing efforts I have no doubt we can continue to keep the sport strong and create more opportunities for shooters to compete and enjoy silhouette in the Northwest Region.”
“One of my main focuses will be to increase involvement of youth shooting programs throughout the Northwest. I believe supporting youth shooting programs and presenting silhouette as a method to teach marksmanship skills will not only have a positive impact on the future of silhouette but also give more opportunities to youth shooters to diversify their competitive outlets.”
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.
