Re: Prize meetings

Trevor I know your previous post was hypothetical but if the VRA ever went down the path of ET’s I’d strongly suggest you keep all the targets together and have a single maintenance schedule carried out by a small team. Having different groups maintaining targets doesn’t work. Matt P Exactly Matt a...

Re: Prize meetings

If a state range went electronic it would have to be Hexta. It would be a huge cost to the members even if a grant was involved in purchasing and setting up as the last levy was unpopular with none Bendigo users. Then the consideration do they stay at the state range or farmed out to clubs and recal...

Re: Prize meetings

I suggest that some go back and read Trevor's original post. Whether a prize meeting uses Electronic Targets or Manual Targets is not a deciding factor in why a large group of our membership don't or wont attend these competitions. Its the club shooters , our most valuable asset that need to be ask...

Re: Prize meetings

My point of view is cash prizes are not an insentive, people go for competition that perhaps they can't find at their own club and are rewarded when collecting a medal or better still a badge of some discription, having their name called out with a clap. Problem now days is a lot of PM's presentatio...

Re: Auto Trickler upgrade, prepare to kick yourself if you’ve just bought one

All the flash "upgrades" and still running bronze bushes instead of bearings and a O ring drive belt instead of bearings and a timing belt. The V3 model has a timing belt on the thrower and Oring on the trickler which allows you without much effort to spin the orgar by hand to drop anothe...

Re: Auto Trickler upgrade, prepare to kick yourself if you’ve just bought one

The power cable on the A&D scale is thin and light. Adam when sends you the setup includes a heavier power lead ( to handle extra voltage to run the trickler and thrower as well as the scales) that just needs a conversion from Canadian to Australian 3 pi plug.

Prize meetings

What keeps our movement going is Prize Meetings and they are declining in numbers and entries. If members don't support PM it will be the death knock for target shooting. Not only is it competition that gives great pleasure but it is a way of hooking new shoots as the excitement makes them keen. If ...

Re: Auto Trickler upgrade, prepare to kick yourself if you’ve just bought one

I'm a bit greedy, got the update from V2 to V3 and seeing l had another A&D 300i l have ordered a complete new V3 for it. Very happy with the auto trickler setup.

Re: VRA lead up and Queens.

Considering conditions were a little gentle for Bendigo but still challenging there were some brilliant scores recorded.
