    Default Latest on ERMELO demo Field Target shoot on 30/09/06

    I now have all the info for the fun day.

    It is called the ERMELO FIESTA and is presented by the Ermelo farmers association.

    It will be held on a farm 20km outside Ermelo on the Amsterdam road. Follow indicators.

    We are invited to join them for the weekend, and give a demo shoot on Sat afternoon at about 15h00 to promote FT in that part of the Country.
    If you don't want to join in the planned activities for the day, I have arranged for us to do some airgun hunting untill the demo shoot at 15h00.
    We may hunt pigeons, francolin, spirwing goose and gippo's, and an area of the farm will be allocated to us for our use only. So please behave, my "good name" is at stake.

    The weekend's activities is as follow:

    For those who want to arrive on Friday, there will be campsites at the dam, and pap and sauce will be supplied. Braai packs will be for sale to generate funds.

    Cost: A R50.00 entrance fee per vehicle, and R50.00 p/p for camping is payable, and that is for the whole weekend. :blingbling

    There will be Horse riding, mountain biking, 4x4 demo track, 4x4 route, motorbike trail, target shooting competition (springers), and radio controlled aircrafts. There will be traditional "Boeresports" as well.

    Motorbike trail, R100.00
    4x4, R100.00 and prises will be given by the sponsors. It is family orientated, and not overly difficult, but some sections may be challenging.

    If any one want to do horseriding, please book in advance to ensure a horse. (they expect 150 riders) and the cost is R50.00.

    For the more adventurest, there is a dog driven bushpig hunt at R350.00 p/gun. (own gun and booking essential) . Only limited entrances. Apparently there are lots of them, and you have a good chance of bagging one. Starting very early on Saturday morning.

    There will be a hall with stalls and food stuffs, etc, that will be on sale throughout the day.

    The evening will be closed off with a braai and a barn dance, "Boere style" and pap and sauce will be supplied free of charge, and braaipacks will be on sale.

    We can fish throughout the night in the dam, and "kuier" all evening.
    Maybe if Gerrief has a few witblitse in, he will confess that he secretly admires and longs for a Walther Dominator. :crazy

    On Sunday morning, we can hunt or fish as we please, and then go home to our boring jobs. :thumbsdown

    Gerrief, with your skills and reputation, I'll make sure it is not a mare, we dont want to be excluded from next years event due to a funny looking, bad tempered, familiar looking and gig mouth foal that arived during the following summer

    Ek sal jou kry,jou bogger.
    Just think about it like this; I'll sleep warm, have something to ride on and more that enough to smoke. All for only R50-00 / day. Not bad. If the foal is a mare also, you can have it.

    Thanks, Z. Between Hennie and myself we will take along about 10 targets. So if we can put out another 10 or so it will be nice. I dont think we need more than 20 for a demo shoot, or what do you think?

    I suppose you can shoot with any air rifle, but the idea is to introduce FT to them. But remember we will hunt aswell, so highpowers is more than welcome. We will just point out the difference to them and tell them that they cannot compete with the highpowers.
    On the demo shoot in Witbank the other day, I took my Highpower Weihraugh allong, and it was a hit amongst the ladays. It shoots so flat that they did not bother to much with ranging, and it only has a 7 power hunting scope on.

    All airrifles welcome, no scoring for the day. We will demo our sport and try to draw more people to join in on the fun.
