Someone put me out of my misery.....just how good was it?
I got back home at 11.15 last night!..as I had to pick up some highseats today.
The spring 2016 challenge was the best one to date IMHO....The COF was extremely well thought out with targets from 100-650yrds. Lots of the stages were unknown distances and rangefinders was banned!and with every stage timed you had to be on your game! ...There was more positional shooting then any before which put quite a few lads out of their comfort zone(including myself)...as usual a great bunch of fellas with plenty of good natured banter! The weather gods were kind warm but a little breezy!
As always a very professional performance by Tiff and the team of marshals. I'm sure Tiff will be along in due coarse with the results and photos.
Thanks Tiff all your hard work is very much appreciated
I will second glenns comments, it was my first but it will defiantly not be my last as i will be going every chance i get, the cof was great and the terrain and wind tested all our skills, great to meet everyone and can't wait for the next trip down there. tiff put in an amazing effort and its greatly appreciated, so thanks again tiff.
Back late last night after beach detour on the way home. :-) Thoroughly enjoyed this one despite being too exhausted to do anything on Sunday. It amazes me how you manage to think up such different cof's. Big congrats to Rich for first shot coke can at 420yds. I think it was 420, all seems like a blur now.
Post Shoot Report - Spring 2016 Roundhouse Rifle Challenge. Firstly thank you very much to those who entered and I'm pleased the new safari style course was so well received. Saturdays RRC consisted of 18 different stages with a wide variety of targets from 70 to 650 yards. Positional shooting was a key theme, with firing points varying from balancing granite boulders through to heavy plant machinery: a real test of a field shooters ability to safely adapt to anything under pressure. Sundays Zeroing and Development Day provided the perfect opportunity to work up loads and check drops; all under light winds and bright blue skies. While it's not run as a competition as such, as a means of comparing how you fared against your peers, Saturdays RRC results are attached.
Crikey, I was trying to keep up with rich all day! Got to say I haven't had that much fun with a rifle before :-) everything just came together for a change. Big thanks to Tiff and helpers. Bring on the next one.
Yep, spending the morning going through pictures...When they go live later today, I'll post a link.
