    It's called Magpie Alley because you're likely to cop an unexplained "magpie", ie a 3 out of five in the conventional local scoring system. Those targets are close to the edge of a hill and the wind is definitely more tricky down that end, especially when shooting 300yds

    Does anyone know if the 3 individual palma matches are string fire or 2 or 3 to the mound.
    Hopefully Eric will see this and let us know.

    From what I've read on the GB Team website, they are shooting strings as we do.

    I had always heard that the wind in NZ could be gruesome and the scores are certainly confirming it.

    Look at the points dropped in the 10 man shootoff. Those are the 10 top shooters taking a pretty good pounding.
