Very excited for this, I hope it goes well for them. 

This is a trial run, I’m sure they will fine tune it for next year!

I doubt they can squeeze in .177’s though, the energy needed at 100yards would have to be above 5-6fpe as a bare minimum, I doubt they would want to cut it so close to the minimum to prevent issues with targets not falling when hit.  Who knows, if the event is popular, they could always add a .177 class- or modify the rules to fit them in (60-70yard max for the high power class, and allow .177?)

Gonna be a seriously fun event, wish I could be there to see reactions and hear peoples thoughts on it :)
