PROFESSIONAL SHOOTING LEAGUE COMING TO OZ

Hi all, a little teaser and heads up, I have been working on this for a while.

Pencil in March 18th Practise /19th/20th Comp - 2022 @ Colo Benchrest Shooting Club. 1.5hrs North of Sydney in the Hawkesbury District.

Plenty of prizes, comprising Ca$h, ammo, merchandise, and gift vouchers plus Trophys and Medals.

Be part of history and come along to the very 1st Professional Shooting League Match in OZ. It will be using 6 of the PSL Licensed targets and scoring over 2 days but using WRABF HV Rules to suit the Aussie gear.

More info as i confirm and organise things, see link below for the USA PSL FYI http://www.proshootingleague.com/target/

We thank the confirmed sponsors so far ELEY and SAFARI FIREARMS

To give yourself an idea you can use a RBA/IRB target.
100 points for a X
50 points for a 10
25 points for 9
Zero for everything else

Back in 2015 I had a stack of PSL targets and I used them to improve skill levels prior to the 2015 world championships and training on harder targets will improve anyone. It’s a good match to shoot but PSL matches will require very good ammo so lots of testing and the costs that goes with it.

NUMBERS SO FAR = 13 Shooters

Hi i am getting enquiries from all sources i will keep a tally of numbers here currently we have 13 starters, i will not shoot it as i want to run it and ensure the inaugural one runs successfully.

We now have 13
starters ! Inc 1 Junior

Please note there is no phone or internet coverage at the range and also no eftpos so cash is needed. Entry fees and prizes will be listed in the coming month once i sort the finer details.

If u r camping please tell me also if it is a tent or van, if u r planning on accommodation best too book soon around Windsor.

I will need to know if u require camping or not too please.

Thanks to ELEY and Safari Firearms our sponsors thus far and also to my helpers so far The Armstrong Family, Brett Wilson, Sonia Frost and Brett Delaney

24 registered now including our Mexican Friends and a QLDer

While i am posting here are some notes FYI. We are trying to source a nice hotel within 5ks, I will advise details when i know. Large Loading Shed is there for swag campers, there is plenty of land for camper trailers and 6 premium caravan spots near amenities. There is full amenities, and a kitchen plus a BBQ but there is on generator power so camp and caravan site people need to be self sufficient. The cost to stay over night on the range is $10 per night per person. More on prizes, targets, merchandise asap. You will need proof of a shooting license and double vaccination plus your gear needs to fall within the WRABF HV rules

TAB
Hotel/Motel

Peter and Jason Armstrong have spent time doing inspections and undertaking negotiations working towards a motel embracing a deal for persons attending Colo Benchrest Club events - things are looking positive.
At this stage the favoured establishment is rated a 4 star, 2km out of town towards Richmond with a pub and bistro 300 metres from the motel. Negotiations are for the business to set up a code closer to the events for persons attending Colo Benchrest Club so that when bookings are made there will be an automatic discount.
To see the facilities www.hawkesburyraceclubmotel.com.au put this in your notes and Peter will advise when the code is secured and ready for activation.

Accommodation off Colo range

Will get Peter and Jason to check the info as the site name was given to them by the proprietors as this could be a separate one especially for groups that will have the special code and may not activate until such times as all negotiations are finalised. Just put it in your notes and confirmation advice will be given in due course.
