The BC Rifle Association will be holding its annual 300-600 Meter F-Class and TR (Palma) Championship shoot from 30 July - 03 August 2010 at The world's most beautiful rifle range, Vokes Range.
This match includes individual shooting combined with specific team matches at distances from 300 - 600 Meters. Targets are the new and challenging ICFRA standard targets.
There will be teams/individuals from the US, UK and Canada. I understand that Stan, John, and the rest of Team Savage will be making the trek again.
Vokes range is located aproximately 1-hour from the Canada US Border and is located roughly 90 minutes from Vancouver. British Columbia was the birthplace of F-Class Shooting, and there will be several of the Best F-Class shooters in Western Canada attending.
Those interested in attending should get their applications in ASAP as this very popular match is filling fast. For more info, you may contact me via email
F-Class Director, BC Rifle Association
Western Regional F-Class Coordinator, DCRA

second your comments on the 'most beautiful' range.
US shooters - you can also e-mail or call me for INFO on getting across the border, etc. one important item for folks traveling across canada - you can't carry a weapon through a provincial park.

I don't think they've put it out in writing yet as such, but my understanding is that the PNW match @ Portland is planning to welcome *sling* shooters as well this coming year...

Hello from Ontario,
For F Class, is a 1/2 minute V-Bull patch being placed on the ICFRA target or is it the unpatched one minute V-Bull?

I believe Chilliwack is using the new ICFRA F-Class center - 1/2 the new ICFRA TR centers, which as I hear makes for a *dang* small 300m x-ring/vee-bull...
Unless something radical changes, I'd expect the long range targets @ Douglas Ridge (Portland) to use standard USA LR-FC (1/2 moa X, 1 moa 10-ring) centers.

Looking forward to hooking up with you at the Prov's again!
The ICFRA SHORT range target v-bull is a scant 35mm, or .4MOA! The medium and long range targets are .5MOA
Perfect possibles still happen, as evedenced by this target shot by the '09 champ, Richard Dreger.
"HABU" is also an expert on what is required to cross back and forth at the border for all you American shooters.
I hope to see you there!
