We re-instituted a few measures to lower entry fee cost. One was to "bring a buddy". If a competitor were to bring a friend who had never competed at the MidwayUSA/NRA Bianchi Cup, both competitors would have a reduced entry fee. We also offer reduced fees Juniors, Production Firearms, Active Duty Military and those that register early.
