***** 2018 Nationals *****

As promised at the last AGM, the announcement for who is hosting the 2018 Nationals was to be made at the end of February.

It is with smiles all around that I announce that WAG will be hosting this years Nationals.  

Further details.  Venue, pricing, structure to come in the next few weeks.    But for now, you can start sorting your accommodation, either in the Wellington Region, or the Porirua Area.  




Further details to come


Cheers

Andrew

We have secured a venue for this years Nationals. It will be at WAG's new FT venue Judgeford, Porirua.

If you book accommodation in the Porirua area, you will have at most a 15 minute drive out to the venue.
If you book accommodation in Wellington City, you will have a 25-30 minute drive out to the venue, mostly on the State Highway though.

Pricing will be $25.00 for 1 day of shooting. Either PCP or Spring Piston. $50.00 if your shooting both days.

If you are competing this year. Please go to the registration form linked below and fill out the requested info. Once you have registered, the venue's address will be sent to you. It is private property, and is not being published online.

Registration Form.
http://www.123formbuilder.com/form-3642569/Event-Registration-Form

Further updates, including the timings, format, to follow in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks

Andrew

"Pricing will be $25.00 for 1 day of shooting. Either PCP or Spring Piston. $50.00 if your shooting both days".

Does this mean PCP shooters can have a practice on the course on Saturday?

Apologies, not a clear original post.

No as per previous years, the format of the Nationals is not being changed. So Springer on Saturday - PCP Sunday. PCP will not be able to practice on the course on Saturday.

If you are shooting "both days", means you are shooting Springer on the Saturday, and PCP on the Sunday. Otherwise choose which day and class you are shooting.

Obviously this should be responded by the appropriate person...however

I would have thought, in the 'spirit of the game' all National course layouts should be unique.

In other words, no host club member/shooter from another club, will have practiced on any lane prior to the Sat Spring Piston/Sun PCP.

Being a PCP shooter, my legitimate solution was to set-up a spring piston & compete on the Saturday, to gain some appreciation for what to expect on the PCP Sun.

I understand how wording ambiguities/interpretations can be present, if not written by a legal mind.

i dont see the point having two different courses. 50 targets shot once yes, but two different courses no. i cant see any advantage for someone shooting that same course with a different gun the day before. New Zealand weather is the big factor here. no two days are the same. windy one day rain the next and sunshine the day after! it is very unlikely to get both days with exact some conditions. plus are you going to remember every target you shot and how you shot it the next day? i dont think so Smile just look now 25 targets shot twice is the morn. how many of you do better the second round? not many. was there any advantage?

The plan at this stage is to have a 50 shot course.  Both days.   With very small changes for the Sunday PCP guys if at all.   

The wind at our venue, will challenge everyone. Whether it's a small breeze or blowing hard out.  Smile

That's true but if you notice, the original quote is from TWO weeks ago.

I know. I don't work to a normal schedule though. So my weekends are sometimes weeks long. Smile

Thanks Rob,

When I asked for registrations/indications of numbers I kept it fairly simple and generic, ie Spring / PCP etc.   I didn't ask for class on the form, as I didn't want people to feel locked in to something.  

The list of people who have registered so far.

Andrew Collins - PCP  (12ft)
Brandon Symes - Spring + PCP
Rob Dyer - Spring + PCP
Earle Hawkes - Spring + PCP
Andy Evans - PCP
Paul Blades - Spring + PCP
Scott Townsend -  PCP
Andrew Jurgens - Spring + PCP
Alex + Raewyn Magon - PCP
Carl Robinson - PCP
Rob Cawood - PCP
Shane Chu - Spring
Dave Lum - PCP
Dave J - Spring + PCP

I believe Andy Evans is shooting PCP HP, unless he has sorted his 12ft rig.   Smile

This is of course not counting people who may be coming, that are not on the forums, have registered etc etc.

No titivations. The weather has been too cold for that.

At this stage have received no more online registrations, nor any via email. So what is above is who is coming to the best of our knowledge.

Speaking of weather. This is Wellington, so to those that are coming, bring your wet weather gear.

We sacrificed to the weather gods as much as we could, however they are a fickle bunch here in the Sth of the North. So anything could happen. Will post a weather update on Friday.

**** Change to the Parking arrangements ****


Please note, the landowner has offered us the use of the parking area behind his house. Which is 30 metres away from the sighting in range.

So ignore previous about parking in the paddock at the top of the driveway.

When you arrive at the venue, continue down the driveway past the house. Turn right before the gate with the flag on it, and park your vehicles in this area.

Still not before 08:30 though please.

Thanks

Andrew

Heres a weather update for you.     It's Wellington so it could be completely different in the morning.
