Extreme Bench Rest Match –Ashland, Oregon May 15 & 16 2021

AirGunOregon.com is proud to announce the first of many we hope, EBR and EFT Regional Matches at the Ashland Gun Club in Ashland Oregon.  Here is the location. Ashland Gun Club 555 Emigrant Creek Rd, Ashland OR.  I tried to paste a link but it’s not working, so do your own google maps search if you want to see where it is.  Zoom in on the spot above “Lithia Spring” along the creek, that’s our area to use.  There is a gate with a key pad code to enter, but we'll have someone at the gate or it will be open for that weekend.

 

The Google photo was taken not too long ago.  We are setting up 10 Covered benches with 100 & 75 yard 25 bull, 3’x4’ EBR targets, and 10 lanes with 3 targets at 25 to 100 yards for Extreme Field Target.  It’s a great site along the creek where we’ll setup a covered deck for relaxing and eating while waiting for your relay on the benches or field target course.  Anyone wanting to get a taste for the winds here can come on a weekend between now and then and help with the setup and get some practice time in too.

There always seems to be a swirling wind blowing in that part of the valley, so this will be a great place to challenge your skills.   And win some prizes… yes, I said win some prizes.  There will be money and some nice rifles & equipment.  I’m working on that and will update as more sponsors sign up.  There will be prizes for 1st-3rd for the EBR and EFT matches and a single high combined score prize.

The Extreme Field Target matches will start at 8:30am on Saturday and Sunday Mornings.   Then we’ll shoot the same EBR targets that AoA and Utah Air Guns are shooting at 75 yards on Saturday and 100 yards on Sunday starting at 11:00 am.  This way the field target folks get the low wind mornings and none of the relays of Bench Rest get a real low wind situation.  The distances won’t be posted on the EFT targets, but range finders will be allowed.  Targets will be a few knock down resettable, but mostly spinners and bell targets ranging from 1 ½” to 5” set from 25 to 100 yards.

This will be a totally outdoor event and facilities will be setup for social distancing. And face masks will be required when closer than 6’ to a fellow competitor.

Entry fees and prizes are yet to be determined, so stay tuned, but mark the date on your calendars.

We had to move the date because the Archery Club had to move their big match.  Their sub club has like 300 members... so since we are brand new, they asked us to change our match date to the 15th and 16th of May.  I hope all of you can adjust.  I'm sorry for the change, but since we are new, we suck hind tit I guess:-)

It looks like I can't edit the main post anymore, must be a time limit.  Maybe the forum master can make that change for me:-)

Some competitors are asking if we will be allowing slugs at the match, and I checked with the RSO for the Ashalnd Gun Club and slugs will not be allowed on the air rifle range, they would have to be shot at the firearms range and that's too crowed to have a match there.

We will be limited to .30cal at no more than 80fpe, so we plan to have two classes:  .177 or .22 cal at up to 40fpe, and up to .30 cal at up to 80fpe for both the EFT and EBR matches.

We are also getting asked if we will have a pistol match.  We could have EFT rifle match on Saturday morning only, and have a pistol match with pistols limited to about 20fpe on Sunday morning to make up the combined score Championship.  What do you think? Pistol.. or two days of rifle EFT?

Hi LD,

I'm so glad you & Jim Z can make it up!

I already changed that.. the smallest at 25 yards (the closest targets), will be a 7/8" spinner... still easy peasy, right?

Robert from AOA is going to sponsor this event and make this a part of the new Extreme BR & EFT Grand Prix he is figuring out as we speak... so I'm still not sure of the rules that will be established, as we are still hashing it all out.

After further consideration and input, I've decided to up the 40fpe class to 60fpe.  I hope that pleases more people and finds a happy medium.

@wayne-burns

I think 40 was fine, and honestly people shooting over 40fpe would probably rather have been in the high power class anyway.  By the way you will never find a happy medium.

Just a personal opinion, but I think EFT should be capped at say 45fpe. That would accommodate about 97% of the people who would shoot the sport, and we would spend a lot less on targets that wouldn't have to be built to withstand 100fpe hits. 

Thanks for doing this, I'll see you in May.

I've been asked if we will allow hand held wind meters.  Since we have some wind socks already mounted on poles around the course, and we ARE allowing range finders... I'm going to allow the wind meters as well.  New game, New Rules... We'll try it this match anyway.

Sight in times..

The 25 to 100 yard sight in line will be open on Friday 9am to 7:00pm or so.  The line will only hold 5 or 6 at a time, so we will be allowing each competitor one hour at a time, if anyone is waiting for a turn on the line.  Sight in will also be open Saturday and Sunday morning from 8am to 8:45am, with the field target safety meeting starting at 8:50, you will only get 10 mins on the line on those days. 

You don't have to shoot the same gun on Saturday and Sunday for field target or bench rest, UNLESS you are competing in the ONE GUN challenge.  But you do have to stay in the same foot lbs class as you started.  

We might be able to have the sight in open while the bench rest matches are going on in the afternoons at times when it's safe and not a distraction, for those who are waiting for their relays... not sure on this as yet.

Flags..

We will have a line of flags along the edge of the bench rest and field target area, (which is the same area, field target will be shot from in between the bench/booths).  Sight in will be on the outside of this area.  We might be able to make a 5 person sight in on both sides, but that's undecided at this point.

You are welcome to set up your own flags if you think you will have time during your setup time during your relay.. you would have to be quick about it.

Bench Assignments will be by numbers drawn from a hat each day.

Also, I was asked if we would "weight" down the 75 yard BR target, because it's easier.  I talked with Robert and he said he doesn't like that idea.  They use the 75 yard target as a elimination for who gets to shoot the 100 yard target finals, because they have hundreds of shooters.  He and I both like the idea of all competitors shooting both at 75 and 100 yards and simply adding the scores together. when the competitors are limited to 30 or so as we will have.

Air Guns of Arizona is sending us a goodie bag for the first 30 shooters registered, that will include a hat, water bottle and some stickers.  They are also providing $1,000 of the $2,000 in prize money, and the Extreme Bench Rest targets for us.

So, Please give them your business when you need a new piece of equipment or supplies.

Thanks AOA!!!

Looks like I'm going to enter the Fray !!!   have the guns & pellets, just zero practice in this type venue. 

Eating some crow sounds about right ... should be fun and humiliating at the same time.

Yes, I'm working on the match report… that will take a few days.  The photo files I have to too large for this forum.  I'm hoping others will post some pics of the score board and event while I work on the match report..

That shoot off between you and Jim Zigler for second place in the 60fpe Extreme Field Target event was the most impressive shooting I've seen in my 18 years of playing this game!!

Folks, I started them with the hardest lane we had with 3 shots each on two targets.  They both got 6 for 6.. so, we took the hardest target a 7/8" spinner and moved it to 50 yards.  They both hit it 3 for 3.  So, we moved that target out to 65 yards.  They both got it 2 for 3.  We had to get on with the Extreme Bench Rest match, so they agreed to just split the money from the second and third place awards.  Just plain amazing shooting on both their parts under really tough wind reading conditions… But on top of that, Scott was shooting a .177 cal Jefferson State gun he built at about 33 fpe with 16.2 grain JSBs.  Jim was shooting a .22 cal USFT at about 50fpe that Larry Durham built.  American made… really cool.

Amazing guns, shot by Amazing shooters!!

What a show that was..

Per Wayne's request here is the scoreboard. Some pretty spectacular shooting by Gabe and Steve. Also hats off to Scott S for shooting a 177 in those conditions and tying for 2nd in EFT. Hats off to Wayne and the Crew for an incredible effort building the range and staging the match.

This was an "extremely" challenging event and a ton of fun.  And as Scott and Jim mentioned, a remarkable effort by Wayne Burns and his Oregon crew.

I also want to give a shout out to Larry Durham.  He put together an amazing USFT.  The USFT is my favorite platform, but I had not shot this particular USFT until the match, and it shot lights out.  LD can make these rifles do almost anything.  I have a great 12 ft lb version, and the one I shot at the match was just over 50 ft lbs.  absolutely awesome.
