    Hi Guys and gals,
    What time do you start your shoots at? Not informal plinking but what time does your League/competition begin? Just getting a general idea, we kick off 12pm. I have heard of clubs kicking off as early a 9am.
    Thanks Conor
    P.S. Do you have registration/sign-in, if so at what point does does it close before a shoot?

    Our local HFT comps have booking in from 8.30, safety brief at 10.15 and course usually starts 10.30.

    Local FT events shooting starts at approx 9.30, but due to lower numbers you can start the comp upto 11.30 and filter in on a spare lane as long as you have a shooting partner or willing scorer.

    Comps usually done & dusted by 2pm, then it's barbie time.:)

    Mad shoots

    All Mad monthly Opens start at 11AM ,nice time I think ,gives people from afar to get to us and we can still finish with the light in the winter, never change the times so every-one knows were they are .

    late registration

    If anyone arrives late, after registration closes for a competitive shoot, what do you guys do? Our first offence is a slap on the knuckles to the offendor (who has held up the rest shooting party), second offence is a £5 charge.:D
