Whoop-up Roy:
AFS and associated clubs (? other clubs were not named) in Western Canada are requiriing that all members taken a ROI course.  For those not aware in order shoot at RMH and associated clubs (?) you must take a Range Safety Operations Course (ROI). Not to be confused with the RO (Range Officers Course)  I'm not sure which other clubs are associated with AFS.  However, AFS has made it almost if not impossilbe for us in Manitoba to shoot at the Canadians this year with the new course that must be taken. The course is offered in May and in the middle of Jul. That would be a 2000 Km return trip at the least in order to qualify for the shoot. Then another 2000 at the begining of Aug to the shoot. As I was planning on making the trip to Medicine Hat in May (approx 1600 Km return trip) for the Shootout At Catus Flats, I am curious if the same rules apply in Medicine Hat.  :o

Whoop-up Roy:
P.S to my previous posting I have no qualms about taking the course but for us in Flin Flon the course are few and a long ways away from home!
