2019 Ontario Provincials - Early Announcement

Early match info for early planning. We changed the date to June so that the Provincials came before the Nationals; it just seemed a more logical order.

The 2019 Provincial Championship
At the Grenville FT Club
Saturday, June 15, 2019

The Provincials will be an 80 shot match, shot on 20 lanes with four targets per lane and one shot per target. The goal is to have a good number of elevated shots, as close as we can to a WFTF match. There will be water for Friday and Saturday. Plenty of space is available for tent camping only.

On the Friday the 14th, myself a few others will be setting up the sight-in range and doing any final prep needed to be ready for Saturday morning. After supper on Friday night, we will have the “Gunslynger Match” on the sight-in range if enough are present and interested in participating.

On Saturday the 15th, the morning session will start as soon as we can, after the sight-in that begins promptly at 9:00 AM. We will shoot ten lanes, fourty targets and then have a break for a Subway lunch.

After lunch we will shoot the other ten lanes, fourty shots, to complete the match.

Shoot-offs will be held promptly after the match if there are any ties for medal positions. The medal presentation will follow and those that have a significant drive can be on their way.

I have already created the sign in sheet, so please contact me as soon as you know for sure if you will or will not be able to attend.

Sorry Chris. It is .177 only and that rule predated my arrival in the area.

I am into the planning phase for the Provincials for the format and meal, based on attendance. If possible, will you please let me know if you will be able to attend? Information on what class you will shoot would be helpful but not essential at this time. Numbers is basically what I need as soon as possible.

Thanks.

Three of us will be heading to the club this Sunday to get everything in place for the Provincials on the 14th and 15th. We will be installing more tree mounts for a variety of target placements, including elevated shots. I will not place any target higher than 30 degrees elevation, so no worry of falling over backwards while trying to shoot. We will be adding a target to each lane to bring the total to 80 targets. I do not think it will be any more difficult, since there is plenty of difficulty already there.

We will clear all the obstructions that have grown up this spring and I will be spraying the course with the garlic mixture again to repel insects. I will spray again on the Friday before the match to be sure it has the desired effect. All targets will be freshly painted and tested for function.

One week away from the big weekend and I'm getting excited about it.

If you are missing this one, you are missing an awesome course. Lots of variety in shots and in difficulty.
