SWEDISH SHOOTERS PLEASE READ

In order to make sure everyone is properly insured all Swedish shooters will be required to have a “Gevärsskyttekort” and a 2018 competition license.

We’re guessing many shooters already have this in order to shoot in field shooting events, but for those that do not – either contact your own club in advance or we will offer examinations and license enrollment at the match. Examinations will start friday at 15:00 until 21:00.

If you’re not a member of a SFF-club, which you need to be for a competition license, we can arrange that on site as well.

We’re running the match in a “run what you brought” format. Meaning you can use 15 bags, 7 tripods and a garden gnome, but you carry everything at the beginning of every stage. Bare in mind that not all shooting will be done on a static range. Less might be more.
