This is a reminder that the Ohio Airgun & Field Target Shooters Association (OAFTSA) will be holding a field target match next Sunday, September 17, 2017, at Crooked Creek Conservation Club in Hartsgrove, Ohio.
It is hard to believe its September already. The FT season is drawing to a close here in northeast Ohio. We have just one match scheduled after this one. If you’ve been putting it off, now’s the time. Come and knock down some targets with us and share some stories with other airgunners at lunch.
The day’s agenda will be:
1. Sight-in range opens at 8 am.
2. Registration from 8 till 9:30 am.
3. Shooters meeting at 10 am.
4. Match starts at 10:30 am.
5. OAFTSA provided lunch and awards ceremony at the conclusion of the match.
Classes will include a Novice/Special Junior class. The idea of this class is to provide an airgun shooting opportunity for inexperienced shooters. Some of you, probably all of you, have family members or friends that might like to join you on the course, but they are not really up to the full blown FT challenge. Well, here’s the answer, they can join you and shoot the course in the Novice/Special Junior Class.
We’ll be setting up an extra knock down target on each lane for this class. These targets will be placed at either 10 or 20 yards. The Novice/Special Junior shooter will shoot all 4 shots at this target for a total of 60 shots for the 15 lanes. Scoring will be 1 point for a knock down, 0 for a miss. These shooters will have to adjust for the 2 distances, but no complicated range finding will be required, and this class will have no long distance shots where wind doping is needed. This will give the novice/special junior shooter a chance to join in on the fun using an air gun to knock down targets. These targets are standard FT targets clearly marked so as not to be confused with the FT match targets. So give it some thought – who would you like to bring with you that isn’t quite ready for regular FT?
