    This year The Sussex Open 50 will be a charity shoot on behalf of Mind to help support them in their work to help people with mental health issues.

    The shoot will consist of 50 targets from 25 pegs 2 targets per peg shot to 2018 UKAHFT Rules with a twist.

    There will be no designated kneelers or standers however 30mm targets may be set as far away as 45yds and will ne classed as full size for the purposes of this competition.

    The format lends itself to a relatively quick way to shoot 50 targets as you get down and shoot both the targets from that peg then your shooting partners do the same, so you only have to get down 25 times.

    Trophies will be presented for ( 1st - 3rd in Open class & 1st place trophies in Recoiling, Ladies and Junior Classes).

    Signing in from 9.00am and start shooting at 10am following the safety briefing @ 9.45am. You must be at the safety briefing if you intend to shoot.

    Cost £8.00
    Juniors (under 17) £6.

    If you are wanting to shoot with a specific person don't leave it to the last minute to book in.

    There will be food & refreshments available from our catering lady, Mandy.

    Address; Scantings Farm, Barn Lane, Framfield, Uckfield TN22 5RX
    ( Please drive carefully through the farm, 5mph max. Thank you)

    As it is for charity any premadona who wants a target checking must give the marshal £2 prior to him checking the target. If it is LOT then the money will be donated to Mind if the target is faulty the money will be refunded. If the shooter doesn't want to pay then the marshal will check the target and ensure it is working correctly. If it is found to be defective the target will be fixed/replaced but no extra points will be given.

    Too all those who organised today's Sussex Open 50 a big thanks, it was a great course with plenty of challenges, but still a lot of fun.

    My son and I really enjoyed ourselves; so a big thumbs up :).

    Well done
    Jon

    Glad you and your son had a good day. We managed to raise £890 on the day with a few bits still to come in apparently.
