Gravett / Marlow / Bookham / Sussex 13 September

Today we hosted the annual Bookham TR championship for Full Bore and also shooters from Chichester and Sussex County RA for their Autumn Meeting.   The course of fire was a full Queens 2  (300/500/600 2×10) with sufficient shooters for a teamcompetition alongside the individual (results on the page) so it was a good all round competition.

Not only did we use the club house we also had the return of the 600 yard point (and Barry’s BBQ).  We had some excellent shooting and two scores of 149 (16) that thought they had the top score in the bag. There was however a score of 150 (14) taking the top position so well shot by all.

The teams were 4 shooters from Dorking, Bookham, Sussex and Chichester with the team shoot being won by Dorking with 550.37.

Thanks to our guests for coming along and giving us a run for our money. After 5 years of hard work it is amazing to at last have full facilities in a club house with a proper loo, kitchen, hot water etc. The pictures below show the club house being used exactly as was intended. Members and guests enjoying the day, under cover with somewhere to sit etc. The 600 point is great to shoot on.

There are too many to thank individually as many helped the day go smoothly. Thanks to Phil for doing the bulk of the RO duties, Sid for making sure the targets worked (they all did with no hitches) and for Barry and Alistair for providing the BBQ and the excellent venison sausages.

George and Frank can be proud that their efforts to get this project from the drawing board to reality. I still can’t quite believe we have managed it.

Thanks again to all of you.
