NEFTA Classic

So Whats it all about?

The NEFTA Classic is a major Field Target competition that attracts competitors from all round the UK and beyond including Ireland, Italy, Spain, France, Germany Belgium and USA. The Classic has been running since 1991 to a tried and tested format. In 2024 this will be the 33rd year it has run. The NEFTA Classic is a two day event where competitors shoot a combination of 40 knockdown and 40 American silhouette targets each day. The latter is a demanding style of shooting that is relatively unusual in the UK outside the NEFTA region although in recent years other regions have adopted the silhouette series to run alongside their Winter League main events. The BFTA has also now included a silhouette league in the GP series.

Banks of five targets are shot from a standing position in sequence and against the clock. Each bank of five targets is shot twice. The targets consist of chickens set at twenty yards, pigs at thirty yards, turkeys at thirty six yards, and finally, rams at forty five yards. Extra spice is added to this discipline with the watching crowd as you shoot shoulder to shoulder with fellow competitors. Many excellent Field Target shooters struggle to adapt to what is quite a specialty event. Appropriately shaped badges are awarded for clearances of either all five targets in a bank or all ten in a round. Much more easily attainable is the "Classic Duck" awarded to the unfortunate competitor that manages to miss a complete bank of five targets. The Field Target section of the event is a forty target course set to most usual FT rules. The event will be ably hosted by the excellent Emley Moor Field Target Club.
