National Championship Shoot Sept. 14-21 in Friendship

The National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association in Friendship, Indiana will hold its annual Fall National Championship Shoot, celebrating the muzzleloading sports and our Early American heritage, September 14-21. Amble amongst the beautiful autumn colors of the rural Indiana countryside that the “NMLRA” calls home as you watch black powder shooting competitions and take in the “living arts” historical crafts demonstrations featured in the Living History Center. The event grounds are located in southeastern Indiana about forty miles from Cincinnati, Ohio. Public attendance is welcome and encouraged!

The NMLRA exists to promote, support, nurture, and preserve the NMLRA’s and our nation’s rich historical heritage in the sport of muzzleloading through recreational, educational, historical, and cultural venues such as match competition, hunting, gun making and safety, historical reenactments, exhibits, museums, libraries, and other related programs.

The History and Heritage of Early America and Muzzleloading

At the Living History Center, an interactive and engaging “living history” area on the banks of Laughery Creek, visitors can learn and have fun. The Living History Center serves as a reminder of the importance of the historical heritage behind the sport of muzzleloading. The sounds of a hammered dulcimer, fiddle, bodhran, Irish whistle, and bagpipe music lilt through camp. Traditional craft demonstrations include woodworking, leatherworking, weaving, soapmaking, and many living history interpretations in camps scattered throughout the Living History Center. Youth activities include butter churning, bead stringing, an archaeology class, and candle dipping.

The Living Arts program will be sponsoring many traditional craft classes and activities. Learn how to tan a deerskin, discover the delicate art of scrimshaw, or hear the history of the American “Cow Boy Girl!” Special activities are planned for children, including a class where they can play with Lincoln Log-style kits, and get to make and take home their very own Fort. Children can have fun hearing about the 18th century fur trade while they trade for trinkets, and learn some French words and Native American sign language!
