Our third shoot of 2014 will be Sunday, July 27th, rain or shine.

If you haven't been out to a shoot yet and don't have a rifle, come out anyway and borrow a
gun. For those of you with a foster fitting on your PCP gun, I'll have my HPA tank with a
Foster and Hammerli fittings there for refills. To help with the expenses, we're going to
charge a $5 match fee.

We will start setting up at 8:30, do some sighting in and try to start the match by 10:00. If you
would be available to help setup woodlot lanes on Saturday morning, let me know. It takes
more time to set up at the end of the runway and we can get underway faster if some lanes
are set up in advance....

We will have have 10 lanes with a total of 60 shots and we will toss in a standing and a
kneeling lane for the main match. If you're bringing targets, please have them freshly painted
with KZ that are a contrasting colour.

In addition to your gun and pellets please bring along a pen, clipboard , stopwatch and
something to sit on (cushion or pad, not a chair) for the many seated shots. If you want to do
sighting in please bring along a carton with targets attached. If you cut a couple of holes in
the carton on one side near the bottom, you can run a string through the holes and then pull
the target closer to you to check your elevation settings without needing a cease fire for
everyone.

There will be a couple of airguns that people can borrow, and several fancy FT rifles to check
out.

If you are bringing a PAL gun with you, remember your firearms licence.

I have added yet a few more hopefully helpful links to http://www.OFTA.ca We also have a
facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/175847815942862/

Despite a poor forecast we had a great day for FT, mostly sunny, some wind and some cloud with about 60 seconds of light rain during the last lane. The conditions made for a fun day of shooting. Unfortunately, many of our regulars couldn't make it out for the fun course of fire.

We went with three targets per lane, five in the open and five in the woods. The Troyer difficulty factor for the match was 25. The changing wind was tricky for the longer shots in the open.
