While providing a platform for teams to compete in-person at the same site was the primary focus, the event was also a celebration of the popularity and rapid growth of the sport in and around Minnesota.

The one-day Championship event hosted by the Grand Rapids Gun Club might of taken place on a chilly and windy day, but participants, coaches, fans and families turned out in layers and smiles as they cheered on their teams.

While there were several great moments of competition, including two tie-breaking "first-miss" shoot-offs between the top two women's competitors and a third-place tie in the men's division, several of the best moments went beyond the scoresheets.

The community of Grand Rapids and the campus of Itasca Community College provided a great platform for all participating teams, with several squads traveling in the night prior to the event to prepare for a full day of competition.

Visit Grand Rapids, assisted out-of-town teams and fans find the best rates for lodging, and the Grand Rapids Gun Club turned out an army of volunteers to provide everything needed for a first-class event.

The overall team championship on the day was claimed by Vermilion Community College, who edged out Southwest Wisconsin Technical College by only two points.
