Lea Valley will be holding 3 springer open HFT competitions in 2006. Each competition will be over a 30 shot course to UKAHFT rules.

Open to spring guns and gas-ram guns (no semi-recoilers).

Overall these opens will decide the UK Spring Gun Championship 2006!

All safe shooters welcome; shoot one, two or all three rounds.

Each event will be a stand-alone event but the overall winner of the series (the 2 best scores counting towards individual shooters' totals) will be crowned the UK Spring Gun Champion 2006.

Trophies will be awarded for each round and the overall championship for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for all categories: Men, Ladies and Juniors.

There will be a first place trophy (only) for each round and overall championship for .22.

Dates:

Sunday 30th April
Sunday 11th June
Sunday 10th September

Entry 6 per round / 4 Juniors



Get your proper airguns out and get practising!

guess this measn im going to have to get a rifle that looks a bit better than the one i have at the moment then LOL (tx200 that i paid 120 for, so you can imagine how it looks) but then again why should i as long as it shoots straight and has the power :)

looking forward to this :)

does this mean i have to start practising my prone shots? been going to the club for 4 years now and think i have only taken half a dozen prone shots.

got 30 days to practice :)

ROB :)

ps roger have you cleared your pms?

roger 62
15-03-2006, 11:39 PM
Have now! Thanks.

This shoot will be to UKAHFT course standards so 10% standers and 10% standers = 24 freestyle / 30. sitting. 'FT style' position will not be allowed.

Only difference to UKAHFT club shoots will be that the type of guns will be restricted to springers and gas rams

Maybe worth practicising those prone positions mate

I think it clashes with a Shepreth event which is a shame. Perhaps they should be encouraged to come to LV for the day - and allow people to shoot the same course PCP and have a Shep v LV rematch - must be about due? Get as many to shoot springer as poss though!

roger 62
26-04-2006, 01:41 AM
I'll be there

Yes it does clash with a Shepreth club shoot but both were decided long ago. With so many events and only 2 days in a weekend clashes with something are inevitable.

As it's the UK Spring Gun Championship PCP's will not be allowed.

If Shep members want to come along they're very welcome (as are all safe shooters with a springer) but a separate Head to Head is being arranged soon.

Just picture the scene, A lovely day in the Bluebell woods, amongst fellow springer shooters,all with there bellies full, after a full english breakfast in our canteen, twanging there way round a very well set up course.
Got to be worth coming down for.

You've got to be in it to win it.
