If you didnt get enough FT at the Crosman match last weekend, or worse yet if you missed it, remember that the Falls Township Rifle and Pistol Association in southeast PA will be hosting a Field Target match this coming Sunday July 15, 2012.
Jim and Rich did some pre-work yesterday clearing the paths and setting up most of the tree stands for elevated targets. The three of us were back at it again this morning, placing and leveling the ground target bases, installing lane markers and measuring the target distances. As always, weve tried to keep the course interesting and challenging for the experienced participants by integrating new placements and even new lanes but still have lanes where even a first time shooter will find some success.
We think all who come out will have a great experience and we look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
The match program and details are below:
