    As quite a few of you will know.The SA team had their first bit of collective trigger time this weekend.

    We discussed strategy and gave each other tips for a better team performance on the whole.

    1 subject we did handle was diet .We focused on 1 member in general that clearly needs a bit of guidance

    Thanks to all who attended the very windy practise session at my plot. I think it did us all very good, to shoot together as a team, and not against one another for a change.

    I read in the Irish FT rules that camo is prohibeted, so my old faithfull camo jacket must stay at home. I must now give one of my other jackets instant "houding". They also allow padding in the clothes, that we cannot do here.

    I also see that on the standers, no reducers is allowed, and the furthest target is not allowed beyond 32m. That means only one thing. We expect all of us to try and get a full score on the standers. This is totally getable, if the wind does not blow to much. For most of the team, that should not be to difficult to acheve. So please make sure we all work very hard at acheving that. Positional shots, is where we can realy make up good points.

    On the kneelers, the limit is 40m, and also no reducers. So make sure we practice them a lot.

    It also say that no reducer may be placed further than 32m, with a minimum reduced size of 25mm. That only spells out one thing. A lot of targets between 40 - 50m.

    Different to what we are used to, the min distance can be 8 yards. That is far below what most of our scopes can focus at, so we must make sure we have a strategy, to be able to shoot them. What I normally do is, set my turret at 10m, aim high on the blurred killzone, and shoot. Make sure to practise it, so we don't get caught with our pants down.

    I see that they recommend that the positional shots targets, must be sprayed white, or yellow. So we must try to find out what the freestyle targets is coloured at, so we can start to condition ourselves to that, and if it is a dark colour, how it will affect our ranging, esspecially in the shade, and dark bushy areas above 40m.

    Best of luck, and hard work with you all's training and preparation.

    the course sounds very much like dirt ryders, 10 reducers all positionals with in 35m most long shots from 42m up. some in shade some in open and some in the trees.
