Just wondering if there will be any toilets/showers or catering on range for this event?
Checking if camping in a tent is viable for the 4 days?

Camping on the Range is OK. There are toilets but no showers.
Cheers

Sounds like I will camp some nights and head into town one night. Looking forward to it.

UPDATE
At this point in time the 2021 ULRC is going ahead.
Hopefully, all lockdowns will be lifted by the 28th August 2021.
An announcement will be made on the 1st September 2021 advising if the ULRC will proceed or not.
All NSW Government health regulations will be strictly followed.
Hopefully, I will see you all at Coonabarabran.
Stay Safe.
Cheers
Cliff

CANCELLED, CANCELLED, CANCELLED
After discussing with the NSW Match Rifle and LRFC committee it has been decided to CANCEL the 2021 Ultra Long-range Challenge.
With people organising time off work, travel, accommodation, family etc and the fact that two of our markers are from Victoria and two are from Queensland we felt it wise to cancel it now.
Who knows if borders and local government areas will be open or closed.
Hopefully, we will see you all at Ungarie on the 30th April and 1st May 2022.
Stay Safe
Cheers
Cliff

Any chance there can still be a low key practice weekend before the end of the year when NSW lockdown ends? We will be getting very itchy trigger fingers by then.

Not sure about rural NSW Rod but everything I'm hearing suggests Sydney won't be out of lockdown before October. I think NSW needs to go harder on restrictions if they want case numbers to drop here.

Rod. Putting together such an event is not a 5 minute exercise.
Markers are as scarce as hens teeth.
We would probably have to run competitor marking.
We will keep our options open, as tomorrow is an absolute mystery.

I realise it is not a 5 minute exercise, likely more like 10-15 minutes or even more.
But yes, competitor marking would be understandable,
And who knows when we will be allowed out to play again?
