Re: CANCELLATION OF 2020 ACT QUEENS

I think if I was faced with the prospect of putting in all the work and then at the last having to return sponsorship and entry monies, being stuck with a set of now-useless badges etc etc that I would err on the side of caution and cancel sooner rather than later. It also gives prospective entrants...

Re: Hunter/ Class registration

My question was more to do with the RO saying " Our club is not registered to shoot this catagory " ??? There's a possibility he was referring to your range approval. As I recall ours says we can shoot Fullbore and Field Rifle. It might pay you to check on yours. Far more likely that he w...

Still the reverse our side of the fence.

Hot beer and a chilly welcome? Doesn't sound very inviting.

I certainly hope so. There's a cold beer and a warm welcome waiting for me in Deniliquin as soon as I'm allowed to cross the river.

Vic MR & LR F Class Championship

Sad to advise that the Stawell shoot 2/3 November is the latest victim of the current crisis. Hopefully next year!

It will pay you to shop around. Two different sellers offering the Konus 20-60x100 with a $75 price differential. The dearer one was "free" shipping, other one may have been shipping extra.

Re: Best Value Spotting Scopes..?

For the cost of a Konus you can throw the spotting scope away if it gets damaged and buy a new one many times over. Philip For scoring purposes I bought a cheapie from Australia Post for $75. I was so pleased with it that when they were clearing them at $50 I bought another. That was 14 years ago a...

Re: Windreading Performance Comparison

stopping shooting due to a change is not keeping in front, but avoiding the issue. bruce. Yes and no Bruce. Depends on the circumstances. Without doubt there is more to be learned by keeping on shooting. If it's an important match and the overarching imperative is to WIN it a prudent captain will d...

Re: Windreading Performance Comparison

To what point? To say shooters in one discipline are better than the others? I think the point of the exercise is to occupy our minds and, to the contrary, it looks to me as if there's no difference in wind reading skill. As I said in an earlier post, I'd be interested in a t test. I'd do it myself...

Re: Windreading Performance Comparison

With regards the comparison between the 3 F classes, the only thing I would concede is that the sample size is very small, so small that its possible for example that F-Std or F/TR are ahead of F-Open. As you say, a small sample size but it might be interesting to use Student's t test to compare TR...

Re: Windreading Performance Comparison

Also remember, as you have pointed out Alan, that the principal goal of our game is not to put the shot as close to the middle as possible, it's to put them all inside the 5 or 6 ring as appropriate. In a situation of uncertainty prudent shooters might hedge their bets a bit. Anyway, you've provoked...
