Please see the attached list of the top 50 competitors to qualify for the 2015 (WBC-13) World Benchrest Championship to be held next September in St. Louis. This turned out to be quite a battle. The most impressive thing to me about this list is that in order to make the top 12 a competitor had to have an average finish of 14.67 and better in their respective grands to qualify. This I believe would be the most hotly contested in our history. Congratulations to all...
