 The NLRC F-Class Section is presenting a 2 day refresher course for F-class shooters on 27 and 28 January 2018.  Following last year’s successful training weekend, the course is geared to introduce shooters of all levels into F-class by combining practical and theoretical knowledge.  Experienced international shooters will be presenting lectures, advising and coaching in both the FTR and OPEN sections F-class.

This is presented by the F-class section of the NLRC with the support of the NLRC committee. The NLRC has invested in comprehensive reloading room to support the endeavours of the F-Class shooter, and we are presenting the core skills and knowledge to shooters, that the bridge the skills from novice to club shooter.  Participants of 14 years or older are welcome to attend. The NLRC has an active Youth shooting programme.

This is NOT the GB F-Class Association course that Mik and co, have presented so successfully for many years, The GB F-class association course will be running at the end of Feb 2018. The GB association League is one of the best in the world in terms of organisation and quality and the gap can be very intimating for most shooters looking at joining our sport.

I can vouch for this course. Last year (2017) in February i participated in my first F class competition. The Comp was Stage 1 of GBFCA and took placed at 600 yards at Century.

I had been shooting with the NRA club (NRA Face targets) for over three years and considered myself quite capable of shooting accurately upto a 1000 yards.  However, not having any experience in F class, i  placed last on day 1. 

 I was not a happy person that day as i did not understand wind reading or wind plotting or even shooting  to the level required to be able to compete effectively. 

Tim Stewart came up to me and graciously invited me to the NRLC  F class workshop as above. I learnt an incredible amount in  those three days and started applying everything in my practice and further competitions.   Tim shared all his knowledge freely and being a European champion it was all worth its weight in gold.

Everything paid off and i won a Silver medal in the 3/5/600 yards Phoenix Comp, Bronze in the GBFCA British Championships, a John Powell Shield in the BSRC Memorial day match and a couple of  stage medals. 

I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to enhance their skill set. It is also a great way to share ideas and knowledge for the mutual benefit of all participants.
