We continue to exist in these rather strange times so I hope you are all ok and making the most of the circumstances. Plenty of time to load some ammo or make sure all the kit is cleaned although I have to admit I have not had time to do either.
We are all looking forward to getting back to shooting and Mark is keeping an eye on the range it should all be good to go when we are allowed out.
I do have some news and as some of you may know our Jeff has been extremely ill with the virus but is at last recovering to the point of being able to comment on Instagram.
We wish him a speedy recovery.
Stay safe and we will reunite with an expenditure of ammo as soon as we can.
It is with regret that we have to announce that shooting is suspended until further notice. We cant take the risk anyway and will review the situation as the news progresses.
We will provide an update when we know more and hopefully be able to restart events later in the year.
Scoped Rifle – Stop Press – No Rain and not too much wind!
This was a bit of a first for this shoot and a strong turnout with some excellent scores put in with some tricky conditions and difficult targets. This is a work in progress shoot and I still haven’t got it right so I will continue to refine it. It was fun though so looking forward to the next one.
Scores on the Results page.
Some pictures from Chris who is our official photographer.
See you at the next one – Gallery Rifle
And our driver
Firstly a big thanks to all of those who came along to the work party (some party!). Its really appreciated and we got some much needed repairs done. This included some very heavy work on the butts, 100 yard hut roof and 100 yard hand rails along with some other things.
Thanks again for turning out.
And so to the Scoped Rifle. As usuual this shoot is always challenged by the weather and this week will probably be the same.
We will give it a go and the course of fire is on the COF page but its below as well.
200301 Scoped Rifle 1
See you Sunday
Well those that came along got a bit wet but we enjoyed ourselves and had a good blast at 600. As it turned out it wasnt that bad and we hve dried everything out now.
Thanks again to Chris who took the photos and zeroed his new toy
See you at the work party on Saturday.
On a brighter note the weather for Saturday 22 February is looking like sunshine and clear. Thats good news as we have a work party on that day to do some work on the stop butts and the 100 yard hut roof (and other fun jobs besides) so if you feel like supporting the club (so there remains a club to support) then come along and lend a hand. We start at 9. If you bring biscuits we will happily share them.
Enjoy – roll on summer.
Some Pictures from the last practice (Thanks Chris) Looks like you had fun.
My view that day was a bit different – not as dramatic as it looked but you wouldn’t wander about!
Note there is a large gun safe that is free to someone to collect it (Its very heavy) and can be collected from somewhere in Wimbledon. If you are interested then the details are on the ad.
The next shoot is Service Rifle and I will sort out and post the COF when I get a minute.
Happy New Year – Pay your subs or you are not going to be covered by the insurance after the end of the month.
