    Would there be enough interest to set up a competition that:
    A standard target is used.
    Different classes established (i.e. Centerfire, .22lr, Black Powder)
    Any fees collected would cover costs.
    Limited to FTF members only.

    One would send an entry fee to a central point and get back target, rules, etc...
    Once the target is shot, it is returned to the central point and scored.
    Scores are then posted in a sticky.
    High scores would collect recognition and a prize.

    Have the shoot go all year long, and winners get prizes before Christmas.

    New round the following year.

    Just wondering.

    Sounds fun, but someone would cheat, I bet I know who too.

    I have tried this 3 times and didn't get many wanting to do it.

    If you want, we could include a class for the .460 Rowland.

    You're going to wait a little bit if you were referring to me....I've got to get that thing started as well as round up enough cash to buy the kit and work shows no signs of slowing down.

    I'd be up for it and would get my oldest son to shoot as well depending on the cal.

    I suppose I would be interested depending on the classes available and the entry fee. It does sound fun though. I remember Tango's attempt at this endeavour and I think I couldn't do it at the time because I was so strapped for cash.

    I remember tango trying to start such a competition. I was all for it. Count me in for this one, too (if it actually gets going).
