USA F-Class team in Ireland & Scotland

A portion of the USA F-class team went abroad this summer, visiting the new Midlands National Shooting Centre in Tullamore, Ireland and the Jubilee range in Blair Atholl, Scotland. This was the 'development' team, not necessarily the full team that would be fielded at a World Championships. Some shooters were previous FCWC participants, some were along for their first taste of shooting abroad with a larger team. All were top-level shooters in their own right.

First stop was Ireland, where we shot as individuals in the Irish F-Class Nationals, followed by the second Europe vs USA team match (last one held @ Lodi WI in 2008), followed by the new Creedmoor Cup team match, a revival of the original Ireland-USA-only invitational started back in 1874.

The next stop was in Blair Atholl, shooting on the very unusual range there. Only six firing points, but they are all on the side of a rather substantial valley which creates some interesting wind patterns. There we shot in the Scottish Long Range Championship as individuals, and another invitational team match between Scotland and American F/TR teams.
