    I will see you there Blair. What class are you shooting in? I have a great jacket so rain, no matter. As you probably know the most important thing is getting your range right and having your dope for the range correct. It will be fun no matter what the conditions are.

    Ryan, it includes all meals with the accommodation, not your average horse float @Gibo

    The weekend clashes for me or else I'd be there.

    I was scheduled to be off shore for work so didn't enter. Turns out, I'm going to be home and the wife has now loaded the job magazine and has it already inserted to the gun!

    They have a Facebook page Alpine Longrange shooting or something similar. I only heard about it 2 weeks ago.
