The 2019 McQueen Contest was shot this morning on Short Siberia at 200 yds. The Results can be viewed here >>>>

The weather was cold to start with light wind. The sun making an appearance later becoming a very pleasant day.

We had 8 contestants shooting 3 cards each. There are 5 competition classes. This is slightly down on previous years possibly due to the bank holiday weekend.

In future I think we will have the shooter fire the 2 sighters and then stay in that position for the 10 scoring shots straight away. The next competitor can then sight and follow on immediately into the scoring shots. This, rather than moving position between sighters and scoring shots.

This should save time. We were ok with the amount of contestants today but might have struggled for time if we had the full complement of 14 competitors.
