Boink at MVAC's Hen Wood.... 28th August

 

MVAC's Hen Wood will be the venue and date for a springer only FT/HFT comp run strictly to the rules I make up between now and then. Meon Valley's Hen Woods range is simply one of the best grounds in the south, with a whole 15 acres to play with.

 

For those that don't know where Hen Woods is in the world, think 20 mins outside Winchester off the M3. It will probably be equivalent to a drive to Bisley for those north of the M4. I will stick the exact location up later, but MVAC's indoor range is on the forum airgun club map to give you an idea.

 

Details will be fleshed out once we have the date confirmed 100%, but expect a deviation away from BFTA and UKAHFT but that still allows the essence of each discipline, but allows shooting along side each other on the same course, at the same time, all using bouncing things.

 

Expect food and somewhere to take a leak.

Expect 15mm's to worry the FT'ers

Expect 55yd'ers to worry the HFT'ers

Expect targets up trees and no supported positionals to worry everyone

Expect a course built for fun, not to devastate shooters, and not like crazy golf either

Expect no stuff in front of targets, or targets under 10 yds.

 

The wish list is that we get a really good number coming, and that it's a nice day shooting springers and having a laugh. There's a few other things on my wish list, which once I have an idea of numbers I can try and get sorted as well. Things like a side shoot or two. Things like a raffle with a top prize. Things like running this each year if it's a success. We'll see.

 

So if you fancy a shoot, with something different for a change, and are more fussed about the fun to be had rather than the exact rules you may be following, this is for you.

 

Before someone asks, there will be two main classes, FT and HFT, and the definition of a springer in my book is something that recoils.

 

Yeh, i know it's bank holiday, but it will be summer, the traffic will be lighter than a normal sunday, you'll have a day to recover

 

Stick your name down if you're interested, and I can start working on the boring stuff, which will make the fun stuff easier to sort :)

It's next on the list to sort... will try and get some details up within a week.

 

There's no camping at the ground, but apparently there's a site close by. Considering it's the summer i want to get the details up asap.
