Triathlon-
There will be six classes folks can compete in. (1) Open 20fpe PCP. (2) . International 12fpe PCP. (3). Piston Rifle. (4). Hunter. (5). Pistol (maybe scoped and un-scoped) (6). Bench Rest. You can compete in one, OR two, OR three, OR four, OR five, OR all six events on one day or both days. Each event has a winner, placer and second placer, but those who shoot three or more can also count there scores in the Triathlon.

Bench Rest doesnt seem to fit into the scoring, so, I will leave it out of the Triathlon. That leaves you five classes, maybe six if enough pistol shooters show up in both open and scoped, to pick at least three classes to have your score added in to compete in the Triathlon. You could shoot all five classes and only your three best scores will count. Each event, except Bench Rest, will have a possible score of 45 times two days. So, the best Triathlon score would be 270.

In order to make this possible, Im having two chances on Sat. and Sun. for the rifle events. First time will be at 7:00 am with sight in open at 6:00am, safety meeting at 6:45 on both days. Then second chance same day will be at 11:00am. That should give a little, (very little), break for the ones who are shooting the course twice that day. The pistol finals or Bench Rest first round will be on Sat. & Sun. afternoons at 4:00pm, so that would be three events in one day at least on Saturday for the Triathlon competitor.

Friday afternoon Sun Down Pistol Field Target Shoot.

Register by 2:00 pm Friday 29th in person or by email in advance. $10 covers this event and Saturdays Pistols finals, or $35 (before May 20th $40 after), all events, all days, and free onsite camping.
Sight in at 3:00 pm. Safety meeting 3:45. Meet starts at 4:00pm when the sun is in our eyes partners, so think about that!

Its going be 45 shots, one shot per target, three targets per lane, 15 lanes. 10 to 35 yards, ¾ to 1-1/2 kill zones. I will check for pistols over 20fpe. Im going to try to make the targets fall with 3-4 ft lbs. on the paddle and not fall with 22fpe on the face plate. (wish me luck!)!

This is an open class event, set your scopes at 12 power or less. If 4 or more come to shoot with open sites, we will score and award accordingly. Open class to me, means with no rules about hanging tanks or resting the pistol any which way you want. Use any support from BODY (not ground) to gun you want. Pinch the pistol grip in your knees, I dont care. Barrels not over 15 please. I will force some standing shots with obstructions. Let's NOT extend hardware to the hip for these standing shots.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AWARDS in the following classes, if 4 or more shoot in a class.
Awards will be after each event, so folks can leave if they have to.

1st 3rd. in Open PCP, Piston, Hunter, International PCP, and Bench Rest.

1st-2nd in Pistol Iron/Red dot & Pistol Scoped.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Saturday Morning-Sun UP - 45 shot, Rifle 1st round.

There will be two times the course can be shot each day. All class shooters will have a chance to shoot the course in different classes at 7:00 am & 11:00am. Sight in open 1 hour before, and safety meeting will be 15 minutes before the meet.

Sign IN then Sight in begins at 6:00 am. Safety meeting @ 6:45. Meet starts at 7:00 & 11:00 am.

This is an open class event, (20 ft lbs or less, I'll be checking so dont be close please, we are at 2,700 ft. elevation.) 10-55 yards 3/8" to 1-1/2" kill zones. 45 shots, one shot per target, 3 targets per lane & 15 lanes. If 4 or more come to shoot in Piston, hunter, or international 12fpe no harness class, we will score and award accordingly. Again, I will force some kneeling and standing shots with
obstructions. Otherwise shoot prone, sitting, kneeing or standing, whatever it takes to see the kill zone. On a kneeling shot, you have to have your gun supported by hand and arm is held at an angle, as in a standing offhand shot . Don't forget the sun can be in your eyes morning too, and at the same time as targets are in the shade. Be ready, I'm planning a few tough ones.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

enough from each state (Cal. Wa. Or.) or club to make teams, for a team winner as well. I would think that if more than three compete on a team, they could just pick their best three scores. The team with only three would be at a disadvantage, but that's their problem for not bringing a bigger team:-)

Think that will work??
