2015 dates: 9th to 14th March
The Cobo Open is Guernsey's only open competition for 10m Air Rifle and Air Pistol.
The event is held at Cobo United's purpose-built range at Ruette de la Tour, Cobo, Castel around the first full week of March each year. Visitors from the UK and Jersey regularly take part.
The range has 8 firing points all using traditional paper targets on electric runners.
The event is reasonably relaxed but does run in the spirit of ISSF rules. There is no equipment or clothing control although obvious breaches will be dealt with constructively.
Classes are decided based on knowledge of the shooter or submitted averages. Reclassification is possible if a competitor in a lower class attains sufficient score to reach the top 3 in the class above.
The competition consists of two rounds each of 60 shots. These are aggregated to arrive at a total score and to decide final placings.
On Saturday, the last day of the event, a presentation dinner is held at a local hotel or restaurant. For local shooters and people staying over, there is a fun shoot on the Sunday morning. Everyone including family and friends are invited to take part, with a chance of winning some small prizes.
