ABERDEEN RIFLE RANGE

21-22 APRIL 2018

* * * All licensed shooters welcome to attend * * *

 

WEATHER WARNING:  Aberdeen range is on dark soil, some 700m from sealed road.  In the event of bad weather, it is strongly advised shooters exit the range as soon as possible - this includes 4WD vehicles.  If there is bad weather leading up to the meet, the meet will be cancelled.  Please check the website for status.  

NO MORE MARKING TARGETS…

 

ELECTRONIC TARGETS:  All other matches at the National Matches will be shot ET’s.  This means, no competitor marking of targets…BRILLIANT!

EVERY shooter must have THEIR OWN computing device that is capable of WiFi and has an internet browser – such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet,e tc.  Suggestion is to have the largest screen possible to get the full experience on offer from the ET’s.  Ensure the device is bright enough for screen to be seen outside in daylight (test in advance).  Every person MUST have a way to charge the device during the day while at the range - Inverter, Cig lighter adaptor, etc.  If your device goes flat, then you can’t shoot.  There are no spare devices available at the range.  All shooters must be self-sufficient.

 

 

Matches will be shot in the below scheduled order where possible.  Sunday is a light day in case of wash out of matches due to unavoidable circumstances that prevent matches on previous days being completed.  We can finish incomplete matches on the Sunday.  We want a priority to at least complete 2x IMC 40s.

 

Those shooters who shoot one rifle spec only will only have the first registered IMC result count, however all subsequent spec shoots will count towards the GP and AR programs.

 

Shooters contesting multiple rifle specs for the IMC, they may shoot the rifle specs to a match or day in any order.  However, if using the same rifle across multiple specs (forwards compatible), the lowest spec counts as first result, and subsequent results count towards the higher specs.

 

CHAMPIONSHIP IMC TITLES are based on 80 shot match totals, which equals 2x 40 shot IMC GP scores.

 

FRIDAY      Range may be open for practice.  Check a few days before event.
