    Sounds like we have a few people interested in coming along! That's awesome!

    I wondered what have two events on the same weekend would do for entries. We wanted to have a weekend event that would hopefully make it worthwhile for people who had to travel to get to it. If you are travelling I am sure I can sort some accommodation for those people that don't mind fitting in (read bring your own camp stretcher!).

    And just a little word about entering. The event is a nearly three months away and I completely understand that something else may come up in that time. So if you say you are "keen" or "interested" that is great, i'll pencil your name in and will not confirm your entry until you tell me you are coming along. If you say you are coming then i'll register you and confirm your entry. We do not ask for a deposit to confirm your entry - we rely on a honesty system. You say you are coming and I believe you, all that I ask is if you can't make it then just let me know.

    Of course, any questions or to register just get in touch!

    Yep. Maybe both hunter and LR centrefire if that's possible. I'm waiting to see a description of how things work, from Gillie.

    Proposed rules would be very similar except you are told how many hits on each target for a stage will contribute to your score and you will be able to fire as many shots as you want to to get those hits. Your score is then factored based off the minimum shots required versus how many you actually fired. All stages have a strict time limit and once that time is finished you pack up and move on regardless if you have your hits or not. Only other real change is that this year i might give out the target ranges and reduce the stage time limits because of this.
    @Woody see post #8. You will not be able to enter both hunter and open class centerfire - pick one. Open class will do the entire hunter class course plus more.

    A recent rule change has seen the banning of .223's, .260's and 6.5's as far too wimpy. Nothing less than 7mm is to be approved.
    Note, it take age and experience to properly use 7mm, .284, .311 and .308 cals' you two!
    Another proposed rule is that any competitor under the age of 65 must hop from station to station on one leg only. No changing of hopping legs half way will be permitted on pain of penalty disqualification or worse-- for example not being allowed the use of a telescopic sight. Anyone under the age of 65 found to be using a telescopic sight will immediately be handicapped 25 points and compelled to donate any liquor supplies to the venerable older and classier competitors.

    Lippiness may incur further severe penalties such as having to carry the girls handbags.

    So there--!

    I'd be careful @Woody, i'll make the over 65 class pick up targets afterwards... And it takes something to shoot a 7mm and larger - not sure age and experience is the prerequisite - something wrong with the brain maybe

    Got quite a few interested for the Saturday at this stage, a few less for the Sunday. I have some cool ideas for a couple of stages we haven't run before to keep things interesting as well.

    I'm just waiting on confirmation of getting the time off but I'll be keen for both days and I'll try drag @Nibblet down.

    Really need to get a LR scope on my rifle.

    @Woody, @Maca49 you guys can always share a rifle but as you are required to carry everything you need for the day I am going to have to insist you guys compete with one of your legs ties to each other (i.e. three legged race style)!

    Oh and @Savage1 there is always the hunter class, you won't need to dial anything for that.

    Gillie if that's the case I'd be better off carrying him!

    Yee Haaa. I like that idea Maca49. I'll bring the horsewhip

    Do we need to organise a tent and stretchers, cooker etc?

    Gillie can be cookie.
    We DO need a competent ballistic expert who knows the difference between up and down though

    If the batteries in the "MOD" generation's I-pod pads puck out, they will crap out big time which would level the playing field with us Old Bastards who only guess. Savage1 might not feel disadvantaged then.

    I am thinking of bringing a 308 NORMA Magnum. That way there will be no gongs left to recover Gillie

    Bipods should be banned Why the heck blokes need a bipod to support a wimpy sized rifle beats me

    Looking forward to it Gillie. Gonna be great fun.

This event involves a centre fire course on the Saturday and a rim fire course on the Sunday. The centre fire course will be broken down into a Hunter class (25 shots, targets out to ~300m) and an Open class (50 shots, targets out to 600m). We will allow calibres up to 300WinMag for the centre fire event. The rim fire event will be strictly limited to 22LR only and will involve some moving targets and longer distance targets, although the majority of targets will be between 10m and ~80m. Competitors will complete the courses in squads of three or four. Limited entries to both events.

    Still have quite a few details to sort out with this event and I will announce those details closer to the date. For example I am thinking about making the centre fire open class an unlimited round count and just use time limits and round count to score - see how that changes people approaches to stages!

    Also a large proportion of the funds raised from this event will go to the Taranaki Sporting Shooter Hub (name to be confirmed) a new range facility we are looking at here in Taranaki.

    Get in touch with myself if you are interested in coming along for one or both days for the Tarata event. Entries are only valid once they have been confirmed by myself or one of the other organisers.

    Feel free to check out the facebook page for announcements and the youtube channel for videos. I'll post updates here as well. Of course any queries just get in touch.

    Tarata Video from a couple of years ago:

    Ok have sorted a few more details.

    Entry fee for this event will be $40 per competitor for one day. If you are competing both days the entry fee will be $60 for the weekend per competitor. Junior shooters (15 and under) will shoot for free when accompanied by a adult also competing. A significant portion of the entry fees will be donated to one of the local clubs so come on out and support it!

    Spectators are free but first priority at the BBQ will go to competitors. This is a spectator sport as all targets are steel and react well when hit!

    Round count - 25 shots for hunter class, 50 for open class. There will be at least a couple of stages that will have an unlimited round count (within the stage time limit. So if you are competing then bring a long a few extra bullets! Round count for the 22LR event is still to be determined but plan on it being 40 shots at least!

    Entry - you need to specifically contact me to confirm your entry. Message me on here if you like and i'll confirm your entry. If i haven't met you before don't be surprised if i ask you a couple of questions before confirming your entry! I'll be trying to ensure you have realistic expectations so there are no surprises.
