I have just received the following update from Pete Sparks regarding course setting notes for 2014 - no nasty surprises and all makes sense....

Course Setting


• 25mm targets, please try and use traps rather than throw all out at distance and also remember that 20 & 30mm come under these also discipline & reduced kill shots should be spread equally around the course, please don’t have all the standers or reduced kills in one particular area as this can make it unfair on shooters having to finish on lots of reduced kills which are badly shot up.
• Supported standers & kneelers must not have a peg on them as this causes confusion; the target number should be fastened to the support to indicate it is the peg & therefore must be touched.
• Standing and kneeling shots should have at least 25mm of plate around the KZ and please do not use lollipop type targets on these, all other targets need to have a minimum of 10mm around the KZ.
• The un-supported kneeling shot should have a peg of 4” above the ground, all other pegs should be at least 12” & be securely fixed into the ground.
• For both the unsupported “standing” and the unsupported “kneeling or standing” please use a normal type target, i.e. squirrel/rat etc and not the lollipop type (see above).
.
Please remember when setting the course that it should be fair to everyone, this includes shooters with a budget scope & small juniors etc. Please read the course format carefully as any not compliances will need to be changed when the course is vetted as what you may think is a hard/fun shot could well be impossible for someone else. The aim is to create a course that can be shot equally by shooters of all sizes & age groups, so targets shouldn’t be positioned so as to make the shot impossible for a small junior. Please also ensure that any obstructions in the line of sight cannot move during competition or be shot out of the way by one shooter then be clear for the next, this doesn’t make a good course it makes it a lottery and ALL shots should be the same for everyone. Remember this is not a Contortionists sport and shouldn’t be made awkward at the peg.


Any targets must have faceplates painted either White or Yellow with black kill zones.
