Hello All,

I thought I'd take a quick moment to let everyone know that I was fortunate enough to be elected as a CAFTA governor at this year's National's. I've only been shooting FT for 3 years now, and have fallen in love with it, and I'm glad to be able to give something back to this growing sport.

I still remember my first match: everyone was VERY friendly (to a fault really) and while I did all sorts of preparation for it, including purchasing a scope and rifle, I did this in a bit of a vacuum, without actually talking to another CDN FT shooter first.

While I had *most* of my logic right, I didn't have all of it right. If I'd been a bit more open and asked questions first, things would have gone even smoother (and saved me a few $$ in the process)

I was under the impression that this sport was a competitive sort of thing, as most sports are; with people keeping their hard earned knowledge to themselves- this couldn't be farther from the truth with the Canadian FT scene!

SO if you have any questions, ask away; if you're interested attending a match- please do so!

Meet the group and you'll see what a great day it is.

Fun, safe shooting and spending a bit of time outdoors really is the focus, hitting / knocking the targets over is just a byproduct!

Congrats Tom, I know you'll serve the position well..

2 Clubs in the Southern Ontario region and I sense a 3rd will be in play in the not so distant future... :wink:

If you discover the magic formula that can explain the steps necessary as to how folks can go about starting a club, please share it with all the air gun enthusiasts of this Great Country....8)

Awesome! :twisted: I can truly see a day in the not too distant future where there will be clubs across the country! (except in the Peoples Republic of Toronto :roll: )

Bring your own air rifles, the rule is that it should shoot under 20fpe to participate in say Hunter Division.... Hunter Division is a great way to start into the world of FT....

Rumor has it that there may be a pistol FT shoot before the season is over....
Keep tuned to the Field Target section for details as to where and when.... :wink:
