    Gongs wanted to borrow Kurow 10-11 November

    Hi team,

    @Harryg is going great guns getting things in order for the annual Toby Goodley Sherp memorial shoot to be held in the Kurow area on the 10 and 11th November.
    Those that want to come, we still have plenty of space, details found here https://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co....-2018-a-44049/

    We do have one slight problem at the moment and that is sourcing some bigger gongs to put out at the 1500 and 2000 marks. Ideally they need to be of the 1m x 1m size.

    Does anyone down south have anything we could borrow? Be great if that was the case. Be even better if someone that was coming or planning to come could bring them along

    We do have a plan B but that involves moving large gongs from the North Island so not one we want to have to resort to.

    Cheers, Gibo

    Might ask the Sparrowhawk guys if you could borrow some of theirs - they are at Fairlie

    I’ve got an ipsc on a stand for further out but no 1mx1m. Unless your using a 50 or something big you won’t know you’ve hit it either at 2km unless you have hit indicators or flashers. Even at a mile.

    Muzr257 will be with me going to Reefton match.
    Any of you coming through Wellington if you had a stock trailer there is a heap of green ipsc sized targets at a depo For bees. I recommend you pick them up. Im told they are zombie targets. You don’t need to return them afterwards just leave them in the hill to rot.

    Hmmmm anyone got a paddock basher spare? Park it facing the shooting mount and you'll know you hit the windscreen (might be a pain picking up the glass and for the second shooter)
