    Toby Shoot

    Right guys'n'girls time to rally the troupes, cut off date is in a couple of weeks & we need to get the numbers up.

    You don't need some flash Harry long range rig to enjoy the range day, bring ya alrounder ( there will be plenty of gongs under 500 yards ) and just get some practice & sharpen your skills with a bunch of other enthusiasts and good buggers. If your'e not into popping off ammo then just come enjoy the day, have a drink'n'feed, some good banter, meet some new people and maybe even get a bargain at the auction with all the dollars going to a great cause.


    A couple of things to remember re- forum events

    * These get together's are great fun and don't happen that often, The old FnH forum BBQ's at Bryans place in Whitemans valley are still talked about around the "campfire" after all these years.

    * It's a great way to make some new friends & life long hunting / shooting mates. Don't be shy, just bring a good attitude & enjoy the weekend

    * There's an enormous amount of work put in by alot of people to organise, set up & run these things. Take advantage of the opportunity to shoot on an awesome range at a wide range & number of targets.

    * While this is the "Toby memorial" shoot, you don't need to have known the young fulla, just come enjoy the fun, raise some dollars from buying a ticket & participate in the auction on the Saturday night ( there's a few good items up for grabs from $100 - 500 worth ) all money's raised will go to Ozram house. Plus there will be a couple of trophies handed out ( good & bad ) hahaha


    Just get involved aye

    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    Good on you Philipo. Gibo give this man a kiss. In the spirit of the event and at great personal sacrifice, I will auction off the opportunity to watch and photograph Rushy drink a beer that is not Waikato. Of course the winner of the auction will need to provide the beer.

    Did you even sleep last time Rushy? When Munsey and I rocked up finally at some ungodly hour you were wandering about while everyone else was out to it!

    From what I've heard (from others), when Rushy sleeps, no one else can due to the noise.

    Yeah get into guys, last year was an all-around bloody awesome weekend. And it truly doesn't matter what sort of shooter you have, I took several rifles but had just as much fun smacking the 600 yard gongs with my .223 as i did anything else. And it was really cool seeing some of the bigger cannons in action, a few good buggers even let others have a burn on their big guns. I got to shoot Gregs 50 Cal, and also smacked the 1400 yd gong with a chaps 338 Norma mag.

    And the after match festivities, tenting on site, oh and the bonfire!

    Epic weekend lads, dont be shy!
