The ARA is a sanctioning body for .22lr bench rest competitions. Both the Unlimited and Factory class have 20 minutes to shoot a 25 bull target for a maximum score of 2500. For the official rules click here. To view the schedule please click here. And, to see the ARA target click here.
We'll have our monthly ARA match this Sunday in Midland, hope you can make it. We now have a permanent 50 yard target line on Range B. Safety is absolutely paramount; we simply can't take any chances with the oilfield workers behind the berm. ANY safety rule violations will result in immediate disqualification.
12:00 - 12:30 Range will go cold to allow shooters to setup flags and/or targets.
12:30 - 13:00 Practice (range will be hot the entire time, we will not go cold to set targets or flags).
13:00 - 13:10 Range will be cold to allow shooters to setup flags and/ targets.
13:10 - 13:40 Practice (range will be hot the entire time, we will not go cold to set targets or flags).
13:40 Safety Meeting.
13:50 - 14:00 Range will be cold to allow shooters to setup flags and/or targets.
14:00 Match begins.
In accordance with ARA rules, we will be drawing for benches. When you come onto the range, first go to the clubhouse and register for the match and draw for a bench, then you can park closer to the bench you will be shooting from.
Many shooters have expressed the desire to clean their rifles between targets, so we will have a 15 minute break between each target to allow shooters to clean their rifles and take a short break. You can use this time for any purpose, but nobody will be allowed downrange because some shooters will be cleaning their rifles and handling them on the line.
We will be using the electronic scoring system. Please be patient, look your targets over and let us know if you think you target has been scored wrong. Tommy Fort has put in a LOT of time getting the computer scoring up to speed, but if it gives trouble we will have to go back to manual scoring, again please be patient.
Hope to see you there!!
100s & 2500s,
Patti, John & Tommy
