While coaching in Southern California in early January 2017, at Redlands Shooting Park, ran into Olympic Legend Kim Rhode, training on the field next to us. I've been friends with Kim since she was 12. Great career, great person!

2016 New Zealand Nationals

By Todd Bender - December 29, 2016

While in New Zealand this year, the National Championships were held in Hamilton, an hour south of Auckland. Jack Stockdale, one of the nicest young men around, took a Todd Bender Performance clinic in Melbourne, Australia in December 2015. This year, in 2016, Jack broke his first 100x100, followed by another eight perfect century scores during the season. His year culminated in an outstanding performance and the Overall Championship title at the New Zealand Nationals.

On the way to the Overall Championship, Jack broke his first 100x100 in Doubles and was Event Champion in that. Another TBPS Client, Walter Cheng, USA, from California, won the coveted Handicap Championship, besting the field of top shooters.

All of the Overall High Gun Champions for the last six years of the New Zealand National Championships have at least one thing in common. They are all Todd Bender Performance Systems clients. We are very proud of this footnote and very proud of these shooters. Congratulations to all of you!

Long Island, NY

Working this week at one of my favorite venues, Frank Vigliarolo's club on Long Island in New York. My new friend McKenzie skipped school today and missed her music class to shoot with me. We came to this conclusion, "Skeet shooting rocks, Orchestra sucks!"
