The new FT setup proved to be quite challenging. The wind was gusting up to 25kph and with the new layout directions of fire covered about a 270 degree arc. The sunny, warm weather made for a perfect day of shooting. The variable directions of fire really tested people's wind doping abilities. After a year of all lanes facing in one direction, people welcomed the challenge. The wooded lanes gave some shade and targets on trees finally had people aiming above horizontal. The uneven ground on a few lanes added another challenge as everyone is accustomed to nice level ground. We even put in a 3/8" reducer to give folks a taste of the Nationals (don't worry the other tiny reducers will be drilled out to a WFTF legal 15mm). From lane 1 to 15 was about a 400m walk, so we even got some exercise!

My phone died after a couple of photos so someone else will have to post pictures.

Thanks for the report.

Really looking forward to pictures from your new match layout. Sounds like a lot of fun, except for Brian. :lol:

There is good news, Brian; no hit zone smaller than 1" at the Fudd.

I had a couple of mistakes in the scores so I figured I would just repost...

The sunny, warm weather made for a perfect day of shooting. The new FT course setup proved to be quite challenging. The wind was gusting up to 25kph and with the new layout directions of fire covered about a 270 degree arc. The variable directions of fire really tested people's wind doping abilities. After a year of all lanes facing in one direction, people welcomed the challenge. The wooded lanes gave some shade and targets on trees finally had people aiming above horizontal. The uneven ground on a few lanes added another challenge as everyone is accustomed to nice level ground. We even put in a 3/8" reducer to give folks a taste of the Nationals (don't worry the other tiny reducers that I have been holding in reserve will be drilled out to a WFTF legal 15mm and 25mm). The Troyer difficulty factor for the match was about 33, which probably makes it our toughest match of the summer. From lane 1 to 15 was about a 400m walk, so we even got some exercise!

Roland of NBO Airguns dropped by with an appropriately noisy Canadian-legal Marauder and shoot along for fun to see what FT was all about. From what I saw, he should be a contender in Hunter Division next season...

The guys were enthusiastic about the wooded lanes and we'll be adding more and extending some of the five we already have next Sunday.
