July 29 THAGC club match and fun shoot in Raleigh, NC

Date: July 29, 2017.

Register HERE.

$10 registration.  Non-club members $15 (membership has its privileges!).

Location:

Ball’s Farm   at 5111 Rock Service Station Road, Raleigh NC 27603

This is convenient to I40 and is just south of Raleigh and Garner. This is the closest thing to countryside that Wake County has left.

New Shooters: Come on out.  We have two loaner guns for matches and just let us know if you need to borrow one.  You will have a great time and be paired with an experienced shooter who will show you what you need to know about field target.  Of course you can bring your own gun, only gun rule is that it has to shoot 20fpe or less.

Start Time: No need to arrive before 8:15 as Mr. Ball does not take the chains down from the entrance until then. Shooter’s meeting and start at 9am sharp in an effort to beat the heat.

Noise Limits: All PCPs greater than 12fpe must be moderated or on the quieter end of the scale. The property is next to residential areas and to keep using the farm we will need to be good neighbors.

Eye protection mandatory.  There will be a safety meeting prior to the match.

Registration: $10 cash at the event for club member and the club will donate $10 per shooter to the property owner. Non-club members 15 cash at the event.   Please register in advance.

Course notes: Winds can be tricky and swirl with barns and trees and open fields. Course will have many novice-friendly targets and some challenging targets. Most shots will be in open fields, some tree shots and only a couple of wooded lanes.

There are honeybee hives on the property, so if you are allergic bring an epipen.I have been shooting here a couple of years and have never had an issue. We won’t be very close to the hives.

Please don’t shoot any of Mr. Ball’s chickens. If any wander into a lane, we can call cold and shoe them away. He apparently has a valuable Rhode Island Red. He was also in a WakeMed commercial with one of his chickens. He likes his chickens. So don’t mess with them.

Rules:   The American Field Target Association rules will be followed for Open, Hunter and WFTF. We will shoot AAFTA Rules with this match. The 2016 rules are here.

Remember the THAGC will be trying out an Unlimited Class.  Click here for the link to the gear matrix for anyone who has not seen it yet.
