Field Target Match September 16th 10:30am Match Start
Updated: Jul 6
The Northeast Ohio Airgunners (N.O.A.) will be holding a field target match this Sunday, September 16, 2018, at Twin Oaks Air Rifle Range in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Sight-in starts at 8:00am and match starts at 10:30am. The current weather forecast for now calls for a 35 percent chance of few showers (9 am until end of match) and a high of 80F.
In an attempt to offer some appropriate practice for the upcoming Pyramyd Air Cup, we are going to set up a course in the field adjacent to the sight-in range. This will hopefully offer a bit more exposure to the wind which will help those attending the Cup. We will not have any shelter set up but with at least overcast skies expected and modest temps, sun exposure should not be a problem, but keep this in mind in your decision to attend. As usual, we will have plenty of water on hand.
Tyler Patner will be offering a high pressure hand pump up for raffle. Tickets will be 5 for $5 or 15 for $10. Also, feel free to bring any items for sale. Please put a price on them and lay them out on the stage for others to consider.
We will have a bathroom available at a nearby garage on the property.
Please be aware that this is private property and we are graciously being offered the use of the land by the property owner so be respectful and considerate. We will be providing various signs throughout the property as well as on Bell Street to help direct you to the range and parking areas.

4. Match starts at 10:30 am.

We will include our Novice and Junior classes. The idea of these classes is to provide an airgun shooting opportunity for inexperienced shooters. Some of you, probably all of you, have family members or friends that might like to join you on the course, but they are not really up to the full blown FT challenge. Well, here’s the answer, they can join you and shoot the course in the Novice or Junior class.
Junior class requires the junior shooter to take 4 shots per lane at the close target. They are scored one point for a knock down and zero points for a miss.
For standing and kneeling lanes, junior shooters may shoot the close target from their normal "freestyle" or seated position with the same aids they use on non forced position lanes. (Ex. A junior shooting from a bucket and sticks may use these on the standing and kneeling lanes as well). This is not required, so juniors looking to test their abilities may shoot the kneeling and standing lanes from the forced position if they elect to, although their final scores will not be weighted in case of a tie with another shooter.
Novice class shooters, those 18 years of age and older, will use the same rules as Junior class, those under the age of 18, although they will shoot the positional shots in either standing or kneeling position.
All shooters under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. If the parent or guardian is not going to shoot the match, they still need to supervise the minor at each lane on the field target course for the entire match. One parent or legal guardian may accompany up to two minors.
