Field Target Match - Southeast PA in Fairless Hills, PA - Sunday 7/16/2017July 6 2017 at 2:18 PM
|Larry Bowne (Login PA_plinker)|
The Falls Township Rifle and Pistol Association in Fairless Hills PA (Philadelphia suburb) will be holding our second Field Target match of the 2017 season on Sunday 7/16/2017. The course is laid out on the lakeside trails of the club’s 3D archery course. We’ve planned an interesting course by going back to a couple of seldom used lane locations plus we’ve picked new target sites for previously utilized lanes in keeping with our goal of making each match a unique event. The course features more long targets than ever with 1/3 of them sited at 40 yards or better. Despite the long distances we’ve used many large kill zones to keep the difficulty at a reasonable level. There will be plenty of targets that even novice and new shooters should be able to take down along with challenging lanes and targets for the more experienced entrants. We certainly look forward to seeing all our regulars, urge them to bring a friend and invite anyone interested in Field Target to join us for some FT fun.
The full season match program with all details is pasted in below.
