Matches for 2022 - Divisions instead of Caliber?
« on: November 17, 2021, 03:37:19 PM »
In the most recent Match thread (2021-#8) I asked about using NUAH Divisions next year, instead of posting the results by caliber, and the idea seems to have support, hence the reason for this poll.... We currently post overall results (which should continue), but then break the results down by caliber.... Instead of doing that, I am proposing that starting in 2022 we show results for each NUAH Division.... The shooter would have to post what Division they are in when posting an entry, so that the scorekeeper doesn't have to look you up.... and post your caliber, to allow multiple entries as we do now....

Our scoring system currently uses the lower score for a line touch, to help even out the difference in calibers, and that should continue.... Participation in the matches is very low, and the mentality seems to be "if I can't shoot 50/50, why bother?".... We need to change that.... Scoring you within your Division will pit you against shooters of similar skill level, encourage participation, and through continued practice help you to upgrade to the next Division sooner....

Your match entry target can be accepted for an upgrade, providing you meet the other NUAH rules, and post in the "Long Range Club" gate asking for that upgrade.... You would still be able to enter a target in each caliber you shoot, to allow you to shoot more.... I would think that after you shoot 3 targets at a level higher than your Division, you should be encouraged to upgrade (but I think most would do so immediately anyways)....

Let us know what you would like to see for next year....

Shows how few folks pay attention to the Matches, part of the discrepancy is that I'm sure that those of us who did vote (I did); have probably looked in more than once (I have, four times I think)-so the total number of viewers is even lower...
However, if you were one of those who was just interested enough to view the topic, then why haven't you voted/joined in on the discussion?
NUAH isn't too hard to achieve; even with with a springer-it just takes some perseverance and practice... So come on in and join the fun!

Don't have anything that will reach 100  yards, let alone hit a target at that distance. BUT, maybe in the near future that may change.

I look in on the NUAH threads from time to time in order to get updates and information. That's why I'm here now - but since I don't participate at this distance, I don't feel it would be proper for me to vote.

I see a Xisco sentry in your sigline; have you ever tried shooting at 100 yards?
You might surprise yourself  ;)

I haven't really tried to hit 100y except casually so after seeing small groupings by others, I've just not attempted NUAH.

Part of the reason for purchasing the Xisico was to see how well it would perform at long distance.

It has a leak and I need to get that fixed before I can start shooting . . . Then I can shift my focus to 100 yards.

I would love to try my hand at getting into NUAH, but I don't have anywhere to shoot 100 yards.  :'(

The requirements for membership in NUAH are not all that difficult.... You need to hit the 8 ring, which is 4" in diameter, 3 times out of 5 shots at 100 yards.... Once you find where you have to hold, on a calm day its not that hard.... Try it, you'll llike it!....

Changing to using Divisions for the NUAH Matches will allow fun competition for all shooters.... You can reach 100 yards with a Canadian non-PAL airgun that shoots under 500 fps.... With a gun that shoots 850 fps, sighted at 35 yards, the drop at 100 is only a couple of feet....  8)

Howdy Bob,
Been awhile since I have been on GTA.  Been a . . . interesting year.

I tend to shoot either off a bi-pod or from the sling supported prone, with a shooting jacket, shooting glove and shooting mat (NRA High Power style from the 600yrd line).
I am never going to score as well as someone shooting bench rest.  And that is fine.

Shooting in a division I think would provide for a degree of friendly competitiveness amongst GTA members, and while I do enjoy the competition with others, I am really competing against myself.

I voted for the divisions/caliber.

Hope this helps!
