Well, after working toward holding a meet for just over a year, we finally did it! On Sunday, the West Coast Field Target Club held it's first informal event at the Mission and District Rod and Gun Club.

We met at the covered 50 yard pistol range and set up an number of different targets ,both paper and F/T at different ranges. Most of the time was spent sighting in at the different ranges, and admiring all the different airguns brought out. In all, a very good time was had by all, and new friendships made. An informal 5 target Hunter F/T scored shoot was held to break in all the new targets. High score was a tie at 7 with most of the rest scoring between 4 and 6 points. I think it's going to be some close scoring in the future as everyone seems to be fairly evenly matched :D . :D In all, we had a great day with fine weather with more formal events now being planned for the up-coming months.

I would like to thank everyone for coming out this past weekend and making our first event a sucess!

Congratulations Gentlemen! Keep up the effort and you'll be rewarded with bigger and bigger numbers (scores and attendance) Hope to shoot at one of your matches one day :twisted:

Thanks everyboby. I'm glad we had the nice weather to go with the nice turnout!! Keep your eyes on this section of the website for future events. A meet and greet is planned some time in the next 2 weeks and an informal 10 lane shoot at the gun club using the 3D archery range sometime in the next 6 weeks or so. :D :D :D

Way to go Folks !
At last it BEGINS in B.C. !! ... It seems like an excellent Facility for future events, that's a pretty nice covered sight-in range with benches there; kind of like the one at Elmira that we will likely NOT get to visit in the near future. :roll: On another note, it's GREAT to see progress in getting the sport Up-&-Running there this year. We look forward to hearing about the next ......
It was good to see even those few pics, 8) It seems like the norm to get very few photos in all the turmoil of the first few events. I posted an idea @ that that might help on the Alberta post, check it out.
Good luck with future events guys, keep us posted.

I must say
Thank you very much Morris, I enjoyed it very much. I can't wait for the next event. I will be locked and loaded for the next one. Hopefully more people will show up and see what a great shooting sport this really is. As a first timer, I don't like it, I LOVE IT
Thank Guys
