    Good to see how much interest there is. And thanks for all your support
    Would early November suit for the shoot. Any earlier and we could still be lambing down here
    A few guys have PMed me with offers of help and I will gladly take you up on your offers
    If anyone who has been at the shoot who would like to come and help scout out a suitable range would be a great help. and a few names for who done what in the last shoots would be a big help too

    Thanks Stu I was hoping to get a bit closer to the wool shed but once we work out the distance of different locations. John will be happy for us to shoot across more than one gully if we need to

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    @BRADS and his wife did pretty much everything, they're amazing.

    No chance of long range rabbits down there?

    If I recall correctly, you were a bus driver in a former life. You could start in the far North and pick us all up on your way down.

    Sadly my british coach licence doesn't transfer to NZ, and apparently you need a police check to get a P endorsement in NZ, which leaves me screwed.

    Great idea though.

    Far be it from me to suggest you throw caution to the wind and just do it. Anyone else got a P endorsement? I can sing "the wheels on the bus go round and round" the whole way down if you want.

    A P endorsement is only needed over 12(?) people and if fare paying. Should be fine to hire a minibus and everyone pay their share. Kurow is approx 7 hours from Picton.

    We would need five minibuses. Breaker breaker this is the rubber duck, I think we have a convoy?

    Without sounding like a grumpy old man...(yeah I know, too late mate) I would wait to see how many people actually pay their deposits & show up before you get too excited....
