Sounds like well organized and a lot of fun; just too short of notice (for me). Don't know why everything is north, south or west; why no one around Fresno shoot?

Shep
Shep,
Fresno is practically in our backyard. Dan House is driving over 1200 miles. A few from Oregon are driving 500-600 miles. Most people are driving over 200 miles. For you, only about 2-1/2 hours to make the 140-150 mile drive from Fresno.

If you want to try out field target and socialize with other airgun enthusiasts and shooters, this is a great opportunity.

There should be two 3000psi scuba tanks on the course with standard foster fill adapters. If you can get by with 2600-3000psi maximum fills, you should be OK. If you need higher pressures, you will have to make your own arrangements.

I'll have a big yellow 3600 PSI Tank and a double male fitting. Bring tank and yoke with Foster Female on hose end and Top up at will.
I'm really looking forward to this very well planned match. Scott is doing an outstanding job and I get the feeling this will become a Historic moment for Western/Left Coast Airgunners. This seems to be the first time we have attracted more than a fraction of competitors from other parts of the country. The coming together of North, Central and South with some shooters from other states is a bit like the Floridians shooting against the CT guys i in Pulaski and Californians showing up to play.
This really is starting to feel like a National Program. It is near to my heart to see this happening as it has been a goal for decades to reach this level. Thanks to so many people for helping to make this a reality. I know Rodney Boyce is looking down and saying "HAVE A GOOOOD TIME! KEEP IT FUN."
Be sure to practice your kneelers and standers as discipline shots will be a key element. Good Luck to ALL. See you there!

I'm going to pick up my 3300psi S90 tank just back from hydro with a fresh fill. We will have it there as well.

As Tim said, practice your designated shots. Most of the 30 lanes will be free position shots but there will also be one lane each, standing, kneeling, and prone. A mat will be provided.

We had a few more sign up. They were on my list of possible entries already so we are still planning for about 50 competitors.

Yes you can. You can even shoot the event on Sunday. The front range is a public range. The CCFEF back ranges are competition ranges controlled by various clubs. They are are open to the public for all competitions.

Western States match - easy directions.
« Reply #32 on: August 15, 2013, 04:23:54 AM »
I will be mostly out at the range starting tomorrow. If anyone needs to reach me, best to call or text (805)two three four - 4963.

Unless you are taking the scenic (long) Highway One route from Northern California, you will most likely be coming into the area via Highway 101. Whether coming from the north or south on Highway 101, the easiest way to get to the range on Highway One is via San Luis Obispo.

You will take the Morro Bay/HWY One exit and head north. You will be on Santa Rosa Street for awhile until it becomes Highway One. About 7.5 miles north of San Luis Obispo, the Gilardi road turnoff will look like this:


You will see a gate on the right that will be open for the match. Go through the gate and hang a right. Follow the road for about one mile to the back ranges. Look for the Field Target signs.

Scott,  thanks for posting the pics. I've been by there a hundred times but wasn't sure if it was the same place you held the FT matches or not. Now I know. Even if I can't swing this match I should be able to get to some of the informal matches.

Drew, I feel your pain. Have a birthday party to go to that got moved up from the 24th...NNOOOOOO!!! Oh well, I'll see if I can sneak out there early on Sunday but I'm not very hopeful.

Finished helping with the nets so the birds won't get to the wine grapes. ;D made it to the field target shoot on sunday, a 5hr. drive left Auburn at Odark:30 and got to the shoot about 11:00 ;D things were well under way at that time. Mr. Mac1 was there so I gave him my Silver Streak to be steroided  ;D  now the wait is on  :(  and you TX guy's think you have a though time waiting ;D  I've had this gun for 50yrs. bought it used for $15 or $20 at that time. the only shooting I did was with my camera ;D  met both Scotts and talked with a few other people about scoring and what positions to shoot at each lane. I think the next time I go I can talk my wife into going because if she get bored she can go into town or enjoy the beach ;D She grew up in Salinas and likes that type of environment, cool air and the ocean breeze  ;) 
so I will post some here.

I had to cancel, due to last minute family obligations.  I think I might have cleaned the course, though, had I been able to make it.  But then, I usually shoot pretty well in my own mind, from 600 miles away.   Is that Tim's dog Callie in the picture?  Looks like a great turnout and well organized.  Congratulations to all who participated, and especially to the organizers and volunteers.

Thanks for posting the pics.

Jon,
Yes that is my cattle dog Caliber AKA CALI. She knows what a cold and hot line is so she can be off leash at matches and stay near me or go seek shade like she normally does. The more shade you throw the more likely Cali will hang out with you during the match.

Just rolled in back home Monday @ 3:30 PM having stayed over Sun night with Scott & Alan hull to pick up all the targets and do a general clean and put away.
705 miles driveway to match and home again.
Scott and his "group" did a outstanding job !! ... lanes were tough, food was plentiful & a good time seemed to be had by all @ 44 in attendance.
