BGRC International Shoot
      #334346 - 10/11/19 11:58 AM

Gentlemen, In September 2020 the BGRC International Shoot is being held in Darwin, are any of the forum members thinking of attending? I am going to try to go with my son William but I will have to see as we have just been told that he will need a significant amount of dental work so I will have to see how much that comes to first. Otherwise I will be going, anyone else.

Matt.

I'm not currently a member, but should have re-newed. I would like to go anyway, to meet up with other people I have not seen for several years. And of course if possible join in the competition as well.

Perhaps organise a hunt of some sort afterwards. I don't have any properties any more, nor can afford an outfitter hunt, even at a 'special' price. Maybe a pig hunt though.

Something to aim for.

A year to work and save some money for.

If I go, you have to as well. Be good to meet up.

I will have to wait and see what these dentist bills are going to be like, if they are reasonable than we will definitely go however I am not sure that the words Dentist and Reasonable belong together, we will see. Would certainly love to go as I have never been to Darwin and there will be quite a few people coming from overseas as well.

Matt.

Waidmannsheil,
will have to see, work is always an issue for me & now away a lot as well.
Like you never been to Darwin, would be nice to visit & catch up with the old crowd.
Keep us informed of dates etc please.
Unfortunately dentist & big bills go together like a hand in a glove - best of luck!

I've been wanting to attend one of these for a while. But unfortunately...well actually fortunately...I'll be in BC chasing moose. If there's one in Australia (or maybe elsewhere)in 2021 or 2022 then I'll be there

I wish I could be there. I had a great time at the BGRC match in Melbourne in August of 2018. But in September I will be back to teaching and not able to travel.

Matt, you should go if you can. Damn the dentist!

Well we got the quote from the Dentist and it is not as bad as we had allowed for so we will be going. I told my little man that we are going and he was over the moon. He absolutely loves going to the shoots. He has a job now with them where he helps setting the targets between events and gets paid $20 for the day. Not bad considering that he is only nine years old. He is saving the money to go to Darwin.

Anybody else going.



Matt.

I want to go.

Is it open to any member or must one be on a National team?

I may have three trips hoped for in 2020.

My wife's trip in May to Uzbekistan, which is required.

A friend on here has invited me to hunt elk, which may or may not happen, depending on outside circumstances. Hunting elk is a dream of mine I probably might never otherwise do.

And the International Shoot. One could fly up and do a short trip. Hard to carry more than one or two rifles if flying. Versus eight days of driving up and back. Then one must do extra! I would like to drive to Cobourg Peninsula to do some photography and filming. And do some fishing for once when up there. If I could squeeze in some hunting without spending big dollars it would be a big plus.

I do want to get to this CLOSEST BGRC International Shoot.

What's your plans? Driving or flying? Planning anything extra?

Marrakai needs to chime in here! He is probably organising it.

John, William and I will be flying up on Thursday morning and flying back on Sunday evening late. A lot of the BGRC Vic members are going up and there a lot of chaps from South Africa coming as well.

Flying with two guns is not a problem and the competitions are designed so that you can be competitive with only two guns. Most events require Group 1 Nitro and Group 2 Nitro rifles. There are other events as well of course.

It is open to anyone, you don't even have to be a member. The more the merrier.

A lot of chaps are intending to hunt afterwards but I have to get back for work.

I have the competition schedule at work so if you are interested PM me your email and I can forward it on to you.

Yes Marrakai is probably heavily involved, so I am sure is Mick. Hope they can add to this.

Matt.
