Field Target Match August 6th 10:30am Match Start


This is a reminder that the Ohio Airgun & Field Target Shooters Association (OAFTSA) will be holding a field target match this Sunday, August 6, 2017, at Crooked Creek Conservation Club in Hartsgrove, Ohio.

Come and shoot with some of our very own champions from this year's Crosman All American Championships! OAFTSA club members Tyler Patner topped the All-Around shooter list winning the Open Pistol class and placing 2nd WFTF-PCP, Bill Rabbitt won the Hunter-PCP class and took 2nd in Open Pistol, and Jeff Paddock won the WFTF-Piston Class a full 7 points ahead of 2nd place! I'm sure these Champions will be sharing some of their secrets on Sunday.

The day’s agenda will be:

1. Sight-in range opens at 8 am.

2. Registration from 8 till 9:30 am.

3. Shooters meeting at 10 am.

4. Match starts at 10:30 am.

5. OAFTSA provided lunch and awards ceremony at the conclusion of the match.

Classes will include a Novice/Special Junior class. The idea of this class is to provide an airgun shooting opportunity for inexperienced shooters. Some of you, probably all of you, have family members or friends that might like to join you on the course, but they are not really up to the full blown FT challenge. Well, here’s the answer, they can join you and shoot the course in the Novice/Special Junior Class. We’ll be setting up an extra knock down target on each lane for this class. These targets will be placed at either 10 or 20 yards. The Novice/Special Junior shooter will shoot all 4 shots at this target for a total of 60 shots for the 15 lanes. Scoring will be 1 point for a knock down, 0 for a miss. These shooters will have to adjust for the 2 distances, but no complicated range finding will be required, and this class will have no long distance shots where wind doping is needed. This will give the novice/special junior shooter a chance to join in on the fun using an air gun to knock down targets. These targets are standard FT targets clearly marked so as not to be confused with the FT match targets. So give it some thought – who would you like to bring with you that isn’t quite ready for regular FT?

If you plan to join us, please send an email through our website or to me at the email address below to let us know you’re coming.

Shoot straight,

Roger Barker
