Waunakee Gun Club - Inaugural AFS 75-Bird Shoot 10/24/2020
« on: October 01, 2020, 09:18:30 AM »
Waunkaee has been working with the WSCA Board and the creator of American Field Sporting(AFS) for Waunakee to throw a 3 layout, 75-bird event.  I am very happy to report that we have been approved by WSCA/NSCA/AFS for 10/24

If you haven't shot AFS - please check out https://americanfieldsporting.com/ to see what it is all about.  There are short videos to get a taste of what it is about. 


The simple description is:
- a mix of sporting, Fitasc, and super sporting.
- You will shoot singles and pairs.
- There are one-shot and two-shot singles
-Low gun is only required for AA & M class shooters (the line is the armpit)
-shoot the shells you want - (no-reloads)  1oz, 7/8, 1-1/8 - as long  as they are allowed by NSCA!
-Field refs that score for you and have been approved by AFS.
- field refs describe the birds and what pair you are on - no surprises!
-Only 1 show bird is allowed  (no pairs of any type)
- an "X" bird that is worth 2 points if broken on first shot and 1 point if broken on second shot and zero points if it is missed. if you break all 25 targets and the x-bird in one shot you can walk out with a 26.

It sounds more difficult than it really is. Once you shoot it, it makes perfect sense.

We will be shooting the Blue, White and Red Field Layouts.  All squads will start on Blue at the Northwest corner of our grounds and proceed  up the hill shooting a White and Red layout.  We have opened up some added ground on the far east side of the club to throw either the White or the Red layout out in the open.  Squads will proceed to Station 1 (Blue) every 45 minutes starting at 8:45 AM

$50 for the 75 bird event.  $5 Lewis is available.  Limited to 45 shooters and 5 person squads.

We will be using ScoreChaser.com for registration and will update this post once it goes live!

We hope to see you here to try this out and make it a staple at Waunakee in the future!

George - we are a tiny club - trying the 75-bird event first on our small parcel of land (26 acres).  We may be able to run a 100-bird AFS or a 75-bird with 5-stand after we get the kinks worked out of running this.  We need to get the get the squad times to where they should be after people have shot this (30 minute layouts).  For thiss first event, we were asked by AFS to allow ample time to get everyone acquainted with how to shoot it before we speed it up to 30-minutes. When we get it down to 30 minutes,  expect to see: Blue, White and 2-Reds (100-bird) or a 75-bird and a 5-stand if time allows.

The registration for the AFS will go live around NOON today.

Please make sure when squadding that you list your preferred squad members and also make sure that they also register ASAP.  Just because you built your squad with your preferred shooting pals does not mean that those spots have been reserved for them.  That only happens once they also register.

If there are conflicts with squadding based upon two different squads asking for the same time - we will assign the squad and based upon the squad member that registered and requested first. 

We will be shooting from one of our raised platforms - so please be aware of this if you have height issues.

Please be patient as we work the kinks out!
