WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP PRACTICE CAMP - HUMILITY HILL- ASHLAND OR. JULY 22- AUG- 4TH
Ashland Air Rifle Range will reserve the Humility Hill course for those going to the World Championships and those who want to practice with them and get better at the game of field target. The course has 26 lanes of challenging up and down hill targets, and super nice shooting decks that make long days of practice much easier to take. This is the place to get your equipment and wind reading and angle adjustment skills in order. If you want, you can also use the "Oak Alley" 26 lane course for practice, it will still be set up after the "Oregon State Championships" the week before, (hey, shoot that match and stay and practice until the worlds:-)). That course has more gentle inclines of up and downhill targets, and a lot more shaded lanes and gentle winds to deal with.
There will be no range fees for Team USA members for these dates, and anyone else is welcome to join the team while practicing and in the practice matches we will be having, for $10 per day.
We will also allow dry camping on site for those who bring their own camping supplies and water and are willing to go across the street to either campground for a shower.... or pay to stay there if you want electricity and water. The lake is right next door, is full and has great fishing... I have a boat you can borrow too:-) Bring your honey and family along too, Ashland is a famous tourist destination and incredible place for hiking and bird watching. I'll provide a gas grill and place to gather for meals, but you bring the food and help cook it.. We can party hardy in the evenings if ya want:-)
We are also just finishing up a real nice permanent site in range with all the paper you could ever want to shoot at all distances. We should have the bench rest set up done by then as well, where we will be hosting 75 and 100 yard "Extreme" bench rest matches in the near future.
Medford International Airport is 20 minutes away, so you could even fly out from here to the World Championships.
Go Team USA, let's kick some butt this year!

Here is a link to a weather station on top of the hill we use for two of the courses.... so you can see how great the weather will be this time of year!
Did I mention the fishing is great at this time... Salmon, Trout and Steelhead in the river right now to add to your summer pleasure! Take some time to enjoy the Northwest while you improve on your Field Target game. This is truly a great place to learn up and down hill shots in a tricky wind... and enjoy some great nature/fishing/hunting and food nearby.
