    Default WPHFTA 9/2017 LEAGUE SHOOT Babl Farm ON 13th August 2017

    We are having the 9th HFT League shoot at Babl Farm on the 13th of August 2017. This promises to be fun and a challenge if the wind plays along.

    The course setup start at 08:30. (All shooters to be present)

    Sight in will start at 09:00 and shoot will start at 10:00 sharp. Before you may go to sight in you have to help course setup and sign in.

    The entry for the shoot will be R70 per shooter.

    Please bring shade or gazebos as there is none.
    The ground is very rough and there is thorns so remember a shooting mat(Not a blow up one ).
    Remember water as we will not be in shade and the sun will challenge us.

    For those of you that don't know where Babl Farm is, go to this link on Google Maps



    Hope to see you all.

    Regards

    Hi guys

    I would like to attend. I've never shot HFT before and have only ever shot an FT course once. Im looking at getting more involved in the sport so ill definitely come by on Sunday.

    I dont have a shooting mat, is this going to be a huge issue? Will i survive without one for now?

    Was a pleasure to organise. Sadly couldn't join.

    Always a pleasure to have you guys and girls over.

    Idk why you people got lost.. Will make better maps next time.

    Those winds over that field can be horribly challenging, river bed, ditch and tree rows channel that wind right in.

    Great pictures. Nice to see the youngsters with medals. Nice looking course as well, The wind across that open field would have be real tricky

    Very tricky course indeed, cold South Easter blowing at 20-30km/h. Even Micheal shooting with heavies had to allow for the wind...

    Thanks again to theBabl family for hosting us, Andrew for the targets and Jan for the admin. The course built went smoothly. Some of the targets had very uncomfortable lies, hence HFT and not peg shooting. The youngsters had to use their supple bodies to bend to some akward positions, had I tried that the ambulance would have gotten stuck trying to reach me. With the little rain we had the grass was tall and the targets pegs short, had to use the curviture of the earth to reach some targets. Positional shooting allowing for wind and being blown all over the place didn't help.

    Micheal shot an unbelievable 57, followed by a super 54 by Lejaun, he and Kate are really improving with leaps and bounds every shoot. Hope the cold and wind didn't scare our new comers off too much. Mr Coops kept the boing boing class right up there with a 48. Well shot sir.

    Next shoot at Wetton, only 3 shoots left before WP champs, the competition looks tight this year, except for that freek of nature Micheal who is creaming the PCP devision. The springers have 4 or 5 contenders within reach, WP champs is going to be tough.

    Happy shooting folks. See you all at Wetton!
