Horsham Hawks Winter Hunter Series 2016/17
The second round of the Horsham Hawks Winter Hunter Series for 2016/17 will be held next Sunday, 11th December 2016. It will be open to all safe shooters with sub 12ft/lb air rifles. The targets were set out this morning and this promises to be both an interesting and challenging course - hopefully, not too challenging though!
Gates will open at 8.30am with ‘booking in’ commencing at 9.00am. The shoot will start at 10.00am after a safety briefing scheduled for 9.45am. You must be at the safety briefing if you intend to shoot.
Members and juniors £4.00
As many cars as possible will be accommodated in the wood. Some may have to be parked further along the road. Should this occur, a marshal will be on hand to assist with directions.
Tea and coffee will be available. However, no burger van will be present - sorry, we cannot find a reliable one.
There will be a total of four rounds, with the best three percentage scores counting towards the final positions. Trophies will be awarded following completion of the last round on Sunday 19th March 2017. They will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in ‘open’; 1st, 2nd and 3rd in ‘recoiling/.22’, 1st in ‘ladies’ (providing there are at least two shooting in at least two rounds of the competition) and 1st in juniors (providing there are at least two shooting in at least two rounds of the competition).
Please note that this is a ‘Hunter Series’ shoot. There will be 15 targets shot from 30 pegs (i.e. 2 pegs per target). Whilst UKAHFT range format rules have been applied loosely, it should be borne in mind that there will be occasions when they have not. For instance, there will be no positional shots (but you may have to stand, kneel or scramble around a little to see the target) and target distances will not be determined by kill zone size. Most targets will be between 8 and 45 yards but some will not. Hopefully, there will be nothing too silly. Safety considerations will remain of paramount importance.
Further rounds will be held on:-
Round 3 - Sunday 12th February 2017
Round 4 - Sunday 19th March 2017
It may well be muddy, so please come equipped to get down and dirty.
