About the Event
As always, there's no Range fees for members ***hint hint see the membership tab***
$50 Range fee per shooter (non-shooters and kids are free)
Lessons can still be booked via our normal "book online" tab.
*** members make sure you're logged in to make the range fee $0... or feel free to make a donation :)
Convoying in from the Hira end is required. Meet the convoy team at 9am for the 915 departure, show them your ticket, and make sure you have the same vehicle number plate you provided when you fill out the form.
The road they are using is a forestry road with plenty of gravel and dust, it can be done in a 2wd but an AWD/4WD is recommended.
Check your emails after checkout -
Because of the SH6 closure, you must join a convoy to access the Range and the event. To join the convoy, you must sign a conditions of use waiver form, and show evidence that your vehicle is currently insured - acceptable evidence is a policy document showing the licence plate number of the vehicle they are driving, or a certificate of insurance (also known as a certificate of currency) from your insurance company.
You can send your form and insurance evidence ahead of time to email@example.com OR show it to the convoy team leader on the day - however people without both the form and insurance evidence will not be able to join the convoy.
Departing from the Range is easy - 12:15, 2:15, 4:45, 6:45 - just tag onto the convoy as its going past.
You can stay overnight on the range if you have self-sufficient camping equipment.
- This is primarily for those that need to sight-in Night vision and Thermal equipment.

- If camping isn't your style then enquire about the retreat, we’ve lost all of our bookings because of this closure so we will do you a deal if you want to stay 2 or more nights. www.peakviewretreat.co.nz
