THE HARRY MADDEN HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR 2021 DUE TO INTERSTATE LOCKDOWNS ------ WE ARE HOPEFUL TO RESHEDULE IN 2022 WHEN ALL STATES ARE OPEN.
Just a heads up, the new Nomination form for the above competition and the update to the website will be available shortly. Due Covid-19 restriction interstate the date has been moved the last weekend in October
The Harry Madden this year (2021) which will be held on the 29th Friday (Practise) Sat 30th (LG) & 31st Sun (HG) of October and will also incorporate The Barry Edgley LG Trophy which will be shot on the Saturday over 100 & 200 yards. The Friday the 13th August is practice.
Total prize pool for the 2 day event in October is $15,000, plus Medals & Trophies, plus 2 Gun Title, sanctioned registered match, also any records shot are registered as a record.
This will be a big event this year and the Saturday is known as the Barry Edgley LG Trophy shot over 100 & 200yds, the winner will be Combined Agg. The Sunday as you know is the Harry Madden HG 200yds Trophy and HG is also shot at 100yds.
There is the 100 & 200yds Combined HG plus the 2 Gun Trophy in LG & HG at the Harry Madden / Barry Edgley Trophy which are all shot at 100 & 200 yards. Top 10 in Classes etc. etc.
Smallest group shot under .080" over either the Saturday or the Sunday will win $10,000 (only one winner, smallest group). There will be 10 x $300 prizes for anyone who shoots a group between .080" and .100" (only one prize per person). Plus the winner of LG & HG will receive a 6mm Benchmark new cut design 6mm barrel.
Subject to the Qld Government there will some Covid-19 restrictions but full details will be listed closer to the event date.
The new speed restriction for the SSAA Belmont Range is 3,500 ft per sec applies. I don't think anyone is shooting a 6mm any faster than that? and this is a temporary restriction at this point in time and may not be applicable in October anyway. I don't see this as affecting the Harry Madden Competition either way.
