Default Emley Moor H.F.T Classic 2015

Sept 20th.

Emley Moor H.F.T classic 2015
In memory of Emley member and all round good bloke, Ian Houghton who was taken by Cancer. All proceeds go to Kirkwood Hospice.
I've just placed it in the Calendar. I know for some FT lads/lasses it clashes with the Euro’s but might make a nice distraction for those not going.
Sunday 20th Sept , 1 day shoot. Booking in from 8 a.m for a 9 o clock start.
30 shot HFT course to UKAHFT distance and kill size rules , 60 points max.
2 targets per lane which means double the amount of disciplines
20 Silhouettes , (2 points for each if taken standing and 1 point if taken kneeling) 40 points max
Total score out of 100.
HFT course will be shot in the morning and Silhouettes shot in the afternoon.
Silhouettes are a U.S standing discipline; scopes may be adjusted per bank. Shooting glove is allowed.
2 minutes per bank of 5 Silhouettes then 1 minute rest then 2 minutes for next bank.
Silhouette Rules
1. Target Ranges :-
5 x Chickens at 20 Yards
5 x Pigs at 30 yards
5 x Turkeys at 36 yards
5 x Rams at 45 yards
2. Slings or other means of support (which are not part of the rifle or clothing) are NOT allowed. The butt of the gun to remain outside all clothing at all times. Standard underarm butt hooks are permitted. Bespoke target shooting jackets are not permitted
3. Only shoot at the targets in your allocated lane.
4. All targets are shot LEFT to RIGHT.
5. Any targets shot out of order do not count. i.e. if no. 2 target is hit instead of no. 1 then you lose no. 1 as you missed it and you cannot shoot no. 2 as it is already down, so you must go on to target no. 3. If target no. 1 is hit instead of no. 2 then you just lose no. 2.
6. In the event of two or more targets falling from 1 shot - tell your marshal and then on completing the rest of the bank either shoot at designated targets if sufficient remain standing or your marshal will reset the bank so that you can complete your five shots.
7. At the start of each bank of five targets you will get a fifteen second period in which to load your rifle. The Range Marshal calling 'LOAD' will signify this; you must not load your rifle before then.
8. When the Range Marshal calls 'COMMENCE FIRING' you have 2 minutes in which to take your 5 shots. The end of this period is signified by the command 'CEASE FIRING'.
9. Between each bank you will get a one-minute rest period.
10. After shooting the bank in front of you.... then proceed to the next bank on your right.

Overall winner keeps Ian Houghton Memorial shield for 1 year and has name engraved on it.

Trophies for 1st place only in each class .

HFT Open
HFT Ladies
HFT Junior
HFT Recoiling

Kneeling/standing open(for FT shooters)
Kneeling/standing Ladies(for FT shooters)
Kneeling/standing Junior(for FT shooters)
Kneeling/standing recoiling(for FT shooters)

I’m also planning on having a raffle…..just as good as last time with some really nice items. Please don’t worry too much about the rules as the emphasis is totally on having as much fun as possible, if we raise some cash for Kirkwood hospice then the day will be even better.
