    Update on the Palmetto Range SC

    Is the Palmetto Website slow, down is maybe my internet is just to slowww. It would be nice if somebody can post an update or pictures of how things are going.

    I am sure the organizers are very busy but a few pics goes a long way.

    Thanks

    Gert, Palmetto is holding matches every weekend, we cant put up anything until the week before the match. We do have the benches finished and the 25 meter target footers in. Working on a larget target wall.

    Gert i would be more worried about the amount of 750's the USA boys are shooting. Everything will be ready at the range Craig has worked his butt off organising everything we have asked for.

    I plan to mow this Wednesday (unless I go fishing) and will take some pictures. Please give me some ideas of what facilities you would like to see. Malcolm has been busy getting the extra benches ready and will be building a target (wailing wall) wall to allow all of the targets to be displayed. The extra benches will not be in place until the week before the match. The rest of the firing line is needed for smallbore prone, highpower across the course match, and long range F-Class matches.

    Well Malcolm and Frank and Crew have been working hard to get the range ready .....Here are a few pictures from today's match ......93 degrees and a tricky wind .......


    There will be an RBA Combo match July 3rd and possibility of a IR 50/50 3 gun the same day for those of you who wish to practice beforehand

    The range is tricky to say the least

    PS if driving to the range look out for blue lights as they are very strict
