    IBS Winter Meeting this weekend

    All, for those attending the 2015 IBS Winter Meeting please note we will be at a new venue this year:

    January 17, 2015
    Holiday Inn Harrisburg-Hershey Hotel
    604 Station Road, Grantville, Pa. 17028
    (off I-81 northeast of Harrisburg)

    We are no longer at the former Holiday Inn in New Cumberland where we had been for a number of years.

    Jeff was going to ask sooner, but decided to wait till after your meeting, are you guys going to allow the Seb three bag rest? I think it would be nice if all 1000 yard clubs stay the same.

    Joe, If I may jump in here... I'm not familiar with the SEB bag you're speaking of, but here is the rule..

    Sand bags on front rests must be a minimum of one and one-half inches
    wide by four inches long

    Jeff You will have to get online and check one out! They do offer a one piece bag, But the ones I seen Have two side bags that can be tightened and the a bottom bag. I see in your sentence you say BAGS, The Rules have always said( BAG ) And at the meeting your notes say 1/2" from retainer, thats with the Rifle on the BAG. Correct!
    I believe Ryan Miller Our Club President will be contacting you about it.

    Scott I know it was brought up, but I think that we should also know what the IBS says also thats how thing got started back in the 90's One club didn't know what the other is doing. And before you go to one of their match or them to ours I want to know I'm not going to get DQ'ed.

    First of all, it reads as if you may think I'm Jeff Stover, sorry.

    Yes my post says "bags" but it also says "rests". Plural on both counts. And I copied and pasted from the rule book. I would say if the bag in question is three separate bags, it's not legal. Would've been a lot better if you had asked before the winter meeting so it may have been discussed, but I believe it's old news and has been gone over before.

    Yes I did think you were Jeff Stover My Screw up didn't look at the whole name. Rests! yes one front one back! Well the old news is being brought up again, cause I want it to be clear to everyone,what the rules say and not have people interpret what they think it says.

    I don't think the three piece bag is a competitive advantage or disadvantage. To me, it's a non issue. But the question remains is if its legal.
    Instead of buying things that are questionable and trying to change the rule book to make it not questionable, why not buy what is legal and roll with it. Or modify what you bought so it is legal ? I have already figured out a way to make the three bag system technically legal, since it's technically illegal.

    Well would you like to share? I myself am legal, all I want to know is that both organization rules are the same. I don't like conflicts when it comes to rules! We all have enough problem getting shooters at matches without complicating things. My 2 cents.

    I find a flaw in your statement of not wanting things to be complicated. To make the decision to go on the Internet with this after the meeting rather than bring it up in a phone call to Jeff before the meeting is not what I would call trying to not complicate things. I guess it's once again pot stirring time, so if there's no pot to stir, let's find one.

    No, I would not share. Being an E-Board member, it would seem more official than a suggestion. But all I'm saying is if I had one, I know what I would do to make it "technically" legal. But it would just be a way to challenge the ruling and cause more work and rewording to be put into the rule book. I personally am sick and tired of this SEB test and all the phone calls and emails I have had to endure because of it. I'm sure the LR Committee guys ar dealing with it way more than I am. I'm not slamming the SEB rest, I hear it's a good one, but the issues that have been raised because of it are issues that are easily solved by the owners of the rests. I cannot understand why things have gone the way they have.

    It says in the rule book front rest bags must be 1 1/2" wide and 4" long min. ………. i guess if you can fit three of them on the front you are good…… jim
