Nominations are now open for the 2018 Field & Game National Carnival to be held at Bairnsdale Field & Game on November 3-4.
The National Carnival is one of Australia's largest clay target events with over 500 competitors shooting 150 targets over 2 days.
And don;t forget to order your National Carnival polo
Format for 2018
This year's event will again be shot over 6 grounds instead of the traditional 3 grounds, this will allow the event to grow as we are no longer restricted to 504 competitors.
The 6 grounds also reduce wait time between rounds as up to 180 shooters are out on the course at any one time.
The other major change is moving from 75 targets per day to 100 targets on Saturday and 50 targets on Sunday, this gets competitors out of the front gate many hours earlier than ever have before.
The benefits of the new format:
Ability to grow the event larger than the traditional 504 competitors
Less time between rounds - less waiting
100 target Saturday - 50 targets Sunday
More variety of targets
