National Smallbore Competition results

I saw the National Smallbore Shooting Competition results today and in the Prone shooting if I was able to attend I would have come in 3rd place for a Bronze medal in my Marksman classification level. (based on the normal shooting average)
Too sad...
Next Year, I'll be there.
This November I'll be starting Winter competitions here in Ottawa and I hope to win another medal in my classification or at least move up a level.
Also in November I start some coaching courses at Algonquin College...I hope to eventually be proficient enough to try out as the National Smallbore Rifle Team coach.

Hmmm, I have no idea what Smallbore rifles are but I have always wanted to learn to shoot skeet. Is it an expensive hobby?

Screw you guys...I'm going home!

Hi V:
Smallbore is the .22 caliber rifles as shot at the Summer Olympics.
That is the discipline I shoot, called Free rifle not those positions and equipment costs about $2000-$6000 US, not counting membership fees and ammunition for training.
We have a woman who shoots skeet in our National Team who does very well internationally and has won many medals but I do not think there are any training ranges in the Ottawa area for that discipline of shooting which uses 12 gauge shotguns.
I train at the RA Gun club here in Ottawa.
