Hello all,
Can someone point me in the direction of Canadian or International FT rules for course designs? I am in the process of trying to set up a field course and would like it to follow the accepted standards of the day.
I am starting with a blank slate and would take any input from beginner to pro. Thanks in advance for any input you may offer.
Greg

Hey Greg,

Where are you from?

Great news about you wanting to start your own FT matches.

Your questions about Field Target can start by reading this link, and all the attached links at the bottom of its page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_Target


Regarding Canadian Field Target Specifically:
CAFTA has six men on their board of governors, 4 of which are on this forum frequently. This board is recognized as the official voice of Field Target in Canada. This board has recently applied for official recognition with the World Field Target Association. As the sport grows here in Canada, we may even desire to apply for the World Championships to be held here in the future!

Regarding the board of governors:
-Mac is the president
- I (CJN) am the vice-president
- Keyrigger is the secretary
- Canshooter is in charge or web design and some PR work.
- The other two governors are very busy with their own businesses, but are active match directors.

We have just concluded the new "Shoot Rules" booklet.

It contains these major categories:
- Airgun
- Sights
- Ammunition
- Equipment
- Targets
- Scoring
- Shooting Position
- Disputed Scores
- Penalties
- Target Sequence
- Time Per Shot
- Tied Scores
- Match Director
- Classification Rules
- World Championship Match

I think this booklet will answer most of your questions about Field Target in Canada. When we are ready to release this new booklet to the public, we will be more than happy to share all the details with you.

If you have anymore questions, just ask, or PM one of us, and we can discuss it from there.

Take care.

Hello CJN,
Thanks for the info and the heads up. I am in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I am looking forward to reading your document when it becomes available to the general shooting public.
Thanks again.
Greg

Keyrigger is also in the process of updating our "Match Guidelines" which will compliment the new rules and have more to do with the actual running of a match or club. We hope to release this at the same time as the rules, hopefully well in advance of the 2008 FT season.

We will certainly put the link for the updated information on this site as soon as it is available.

Tim
