Lots of info about the match here, including the fact that Air Gun Source will be there again this year on Sunday the 20th.

Would like to see more new people come out. Would be cool to get a few more chair bound shooters. Tim did anything come of those pics you sent to the worlds.

No, nothing. Seems like they do not want to deal with it unless they are forced too by someone who intends to compete, asking them to come up with appropriate adaptations. Not exactly proactive, but understandable with all the rules debates going on that only the country representatives are aware of.

Even if you didn't shoot maybe they could use a few volunteers??
I haven't got my full power spring yet to practice with but Id probably be able to volunteer and help out for the day

If the CFSC that I am on the waiting list for doesn't end up being on that day(s), I may just come if I can transportation wise.

It's NOT a competitive atmosphere at all - really, the joy is in spending time out in the woods with like minded people. Even if you only shoot one of the days, you'll have learned a lot when you're finished.

If you arrive early, you can spend time on the warm up range finding out where your rifle is hitting - it doesn't take that long to zero then shoot at the targets spaced from 10 to 55 yards.

If you can make it down on Friday afternoon, the range should be open until sunset - you'll have plenty of time to get yourself sorted.

The biggest hurtle I see people having to overcome is just attending a match - Come, you'll not regret it.

Just shoot your detuned rifle in the Hunter class - you'd be surprised how many of the closer targets will fall if your pellet lands in the HZ - on the farther targets just aim for the metal, they still might fall!

We can always use help on the Friday, that's when most of the targets will be set up.

Just come and shoot - as I said before, you'll walk away with a lot of knowledge!
