Marksmanship Event - April 2011
Next April there is to be an unusual 3 day shooting event at W.M.S.
in mid-Wales, sponsored and operated by Open Seasons (as in KG cleaning
products), together with P.G.W. (as in Timber Wolf rifles) and Blaser,
The first day is strictly for the military and police, but the
second day is a trade and demonstration day, and the third a field
marksmanship event for pairs of shooters (no individual prizes).
Entries will be invited for both long range specialist precision
matches involving some fieldcraft, and some medium range PR type
stages using steel targets (I have been invited to assist with the
development and running of the latter). On this occasion shooters
will only be able chose one of the two match formats. Shooting will
be squadded and run to a timetable, so that shooters can be constantly
engaged in some sort of activity. Equipment will be restricted to
what can be carried on the person.
There may also be a night shoot, using night vision equipment and
other 'have-a-go' shooting activities will be offered by the sponsors.
Because of the generous sponsorship the prize table will be outstanding
(possibly rifles, scopes, etc.) and the entry fee modest: £50 for
the two days.
I am hoping to help the organisers gauge the level of interest
from the PR world so I would pleased to hear from anyone who thinks
they might like to take part.
