BGRC NSW - State Championship 6 Oct - Merkel Cup 7 Oct
      #86481 - 02/10/07 05:57 PM





The 2007 NSW Big Game Rifle State Titles will be held on the 6th of October, 2007, at the Windemere Shooting Complex* on Range No. 1. Registrations will start from 8am and shooting will commence at 10am. (* Windemere Shooting Complex is 235 kms from the Sydney GPO and 42km from Mudgee.

The following matches will be contested, in accordance with the National Rules:

Stalker Class
Nitro Group 1
Nitro Group 2
Blackpowder Express
Double Rifle (Stalker)
Stopper Class
Charging Animal
Nitro Group 3
Bore Gun
Double Rifle (Stopper)

Entry into each event will cost $5.00 and to be eligible for the title of State Champion, you must compete in, at least, four (4) events which must be two (2) from the Stalker events and two (2) from the Stopper events. If you compete in more events, then your two (2) best Stalker scores will be used with your two (2) best stopper scores to determine your overall result.

CATERING:
Lunch: Hot food, snacks and drinks will be on-sale, on the range, during the day. (Please note that there are no shops within easy driving distance of the range so if you do not want to buy your lunch then you should bring something to eat and drink.)


Dinner: There will be a presentation dinner, on the range, on the Saturday night and the theme will be a South African Braai**.(**Braai is the South African word for BBQ.)

Dinner will be a three (3) course meal at a cost of approximately $25*** per head and there will be South African wines and beers on sale. (*** This charge will be on a strictly no-profit basis intended only to recoup costs and so may vary slightly on the night.)

Bring a folding camp chair so that you can sit around the fire-pit (fire restrictions permitting) and talk about big game rifles and hunting.

As I was preparing for a Safari to Mozambique I unfortunately missed this event.
How was it and when is the next one?
