The 2018 Ontario Winter Games air rifle and air pistol shooting events are being hosted by the City of Orillia and will take place March 1 – 3, 2018 at the Rama MASK sport venue.
These are air rifle & pistol matches for Juniors only. To be eligible for these Games a Junior must be at least 12 years old in 2018 and your 21st birthday must be after December 31, 2018 and an Ontario resident to qualify. The athlete must be a member of ONTarget: Rifle and Pistol Alliance if such athlete accepts a team spot.
Trials for these Games will be conducted this year in conjunction with the November 11/12, 2017 and December 9/10, 2017 LSBA matches at all locations (see LSBA bulletin for more information regarding these matches). The trials for air rifle and air pistol will consist of 60 shots for both males & females. Should scores be submitted from electronics, they will be converted before ranking using the SFC standard conversion calculation.
The top 5 males and top 5 females in each of the Trials for each discipline of air rifle & air pistol will be selected to compete in the Ontario Winter Games (total of 10 rifle & 10 pistol athletes). Any athlete can submit as many scores as they wish but only their highest score per discipline will be used to determine their ranking for qualification purposes. Each athlete’s highest score per discipline will be taken and entered on a list in order of highest to lowest score and the first 5 males and the first 5 females highest scores in each discipline will be invited to participate in the Ontario Winter Games. The remainder of the listed athletes in each discipline will be considered alternates and will be contacted on an individual basis, in the order of ranking on the list, should an athlete with a higher score decide not to participate.
To compete in the trials please fill out the attached Qualification form (print your own or available at the registration desk) and submit prior to competition. The match director at your location will calculate your scores and forward it to ONTarget following the match. All applications must be received by December 19, 2017. Team List will be published on or before December 19, 2017.
NOTE: There is no fee for the trials. If you wish to enter the Trials without fully competing in the Nov or Dec LSBA’s there is no charge once per discipline/per event (i.e. 1 x Air event at any date for Nov LSBA and 1 x at Dec LSBA), however your score will not be eligible for awards at such match and/or for classification purposes. Any further entries after the initial free entry must be paid for as a regular entry.
