Course setting guidlines
- Please remember when setting the course that it should be fair to everyone, this includes shooters with budget scopes & small juniors as what you 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.
- Discipline & reduced kill shots should be spread equally around the course & on level ground, please don't have all the standers, kneelers or reduced kill 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.
- Standing & kneeling shots should have at least 25mm of plate around the kill zone, all other targets need a minimum of 10mm around the kill zone. All targets must have faceplates painted either white or yellow with black kill zones. The footing for all positional shots should be level & stable.
- All elevated shots (more than 12ft above the horizontal plane of the peg) must have a peg of at least 18" tall.
- Elevated shots with kill zones below 35mm must be no closed than 20yds.
- The area around the peg/support should provide stable & level footing, no slopes or humps.
- Standing/Kneeling shots must be able to be taken from either side of the peg/support, with the full faceplate visible for all heights of shooter.
- The support on the supported standers must be of sufficient height to cater for tall shooters (6ft+)
- The unsupported 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.
- Unsupported Standing/Kneeling shots should use a standard type knock over target, not a lollypop type target.
- Any supported kneeling shots over 35yds MUST have a support to allow a standing shot to be taken, for shots 35yds or under this is not a requirement as it's not always possible on some courses.
