Introduction to F-Class and Wind Reading
Bayou Rifles will be holding an “Introduction to High Power and F-Class Competition / Conditions (wind) Reading” class on Saturday May 3rd, 2014 at the Julliff range. The morning session will be an introduction to competition shooting where all aspects of a match will be explained and demonstrated. There will be target pulling and live firing by seasoned competitors. This is a great way to learn about NRA High Power and F-Class competition and have all your questions answered.
The afternoon session will be about wind reading, conditions awareness and aspects of competition strategies presented by seasoned competitors. There will be live fire demonstrations by instructors to demonstrate the effects of wind under actual conditions at 1000 yards. Attendees will make wind calls and the instructors will then shoot to determine the accuracy of the wind calls. The attendees are urged to bring spotting scopes and tripods if available, as well as small chairs or stools.
