[Sticky] Field Target Match - Southeast PA in Fairless Hills, PA - Sunday 11/17/19
The Falls Township Rifle and Pistol Association in Fairless Hills PA (Philadelphia suburb) will be holding our fourth Field Target match of the 2019 season on Sunday 11/17/19. The 10 lane 60 shot course is laid out on the lakeside trails of the club’s 3D archery course. Within the confines of the 33 targets we’ve also laid out a 20 target / 40 shot course for those who wish to shoot pistol only or be adventurous and compete in both disciplines. Approximately 1/3 of the targets are tree or pole mounted with higher elevation angles. We’ve tried to pick new locations within our existing lane structure and use at least a couple of seldom used lane choices. Even though the average distance is longer than usual for us, with lots of full size kill zones there will be plenty of targets that even novice and new shooters should be able to take down along with challenging lanes and targets for the more experienced entrants. We certainly look forward to seeing all our regulars, urge them to bring a friend and invite anyone interested in Field Target to join us for some FT fun.
The full season match program with all details is pasted in below.
