    I assume that I will be shooting in C grade?

    Not sure if my other half is doing booking in/stats this year but he probably will be - and grades are always checked with background checks carried out on potential ringers :)
    BTW I think you can elect to shoot in a higher grade as well it doesn't have to be C.

    All welcome,

    Simone

    PS - a little reminder we have a No cammo clothing rule at ETL, it's a condition stipulated on the licence on our use of the ground, cases/pouches/bags etc are fine but not main clothing e.g. tops/trousers/jackets - sorry if that's inconvienent for anyone but it's just something we have to abide by.

    I have shot HFT to a fairly good standard this year, but until last week I had never even looked through a 50mag scope that was attached to a rifle.

    Tomorrow I am going to be setting up the scope, I have been told to use colours. Is it 8-55yards with standers and kneelers out to 45?

    Ft ?

    FT is no different to HFT in the fact that you need to knock down the targets to win . the big mag scopes are there to help you . quite a lot of shooters look through the scope at a longun and are beaten before they shoot . cos of the fact that the target looks so small . turn the mag up and it does not look so scary . we call it " i would rather shoot at a dinner plate , than a saucer. " Marking the sidewheel and turret up is a matter of choice . i use colours and i match em sidewheel to turret .green to green and so on . but you can use numbers or heiroglyphics if you so chose . do not expect to much to start with . finding a long target on a tree or worse several trees is not easy . that is why you see shooters with coasters on the mag ring , so they can find the target on 10 mag and then zoom up to 50 . range find and then down to 25 to shoot on . if you need any help pop down to Springfield and we will give you all the help we can ??? HOLLY:)

    I'm sure there will be food on, usually is.
    Booking in will probably open 9 to 9,30 - shoot starts at 10-ish according to Simon the comp sec.

    Don't think the glassman has ever been won by a welshman before :)
