Saturday: Sunny with a few cloudy periods in the morning. Small chance of showers or thundershowers late in the afternoon to evening.
Hot and humid with morning temperatures near 25C at mid morning rising to low 30-32 in the afternoon. Winds westerly 10 to 15 kms.
Sunday: Sunny with temperatures rising 25C by 10 am and to 32C in the afternoon. Winds west 5-8 kms diminishing to light.
With high humidity and temperatures both days there will be humidex readings in the mid 30s.
If the reading is in the mid to high 30s, then certain types of outdoor exercise should be toned down or modified, depending on the age and health of the individual, physical shape, the type of clothes worn and other weather conditions.
If working outdoors is an absolute necessity, drink plenty of liquids and take frequent rest breaks. In hot, humid conditions, there is a considerable risk of heat stroke and sun stroke.

ELECTRONIC TARGET MARKING: Please note that this year, for the first time, the RNBRA is using electronic target marking. This will mean some adjustments in the normal functioning at the firing point.
1. The electronic system will only register bullets arriving at the target above the speed of sound. In order for your bullets to register at 900m, you either need to load the old (#2155) Sierra 155s to about 3000fps, or use one of the higher-performance 155s (Berger 155.5, Lapua 155, new Sierra 155 #2156, etc). For .223, either a 90 grain bullet is needed, or an 80 grain bullet loaded to near 3000fps.
2. The system uses display panels at the firing line. Some/a few will be provided but shooters should bring their own iPad, smartphone, e-reader (Sony-PRS-T2 e-readers are available at Staples for about $100). Help will be available to get your devices set up, if you arrive at least one hour early.
3. Squadding will be three shooters per target. Squadding/target assignment will be done randomly and announced at the beginning of each day of shooting.
4. Only two relays will be fired at each distance.
