9 August 500 Yard Shoot – Booking Open

The booking is open for this shoot for the forthcoming Sunday.

We had to move the dates around to avoid the Ride Surry cycle road closures so thats why we are on consecutive weekends.

The email address, in case any of you are tempted to email something different is:-

You know the drill

To make it interesting (and due to the Ride Surrey) the next shoot is the week after as Ihad to move the schedule around when I sorted it out at the end of last year. We will get through this weekends shoot and then open the booking for the following week afterwards.

See you then

 

Gallery Rifle Shoot and ‘the virus’ in general – Pictures added

 

Sundays shoot is a Gallery Rifle at 100 yards so bring the items looking lonely in the cupboard. You know the drill for these by now.
As regards the current concerns regarding the Corvid-19 virus you should be fairly safe outdoors but try not to breath over each other and possibly best to avoid physical contact (handshakes, kissing etc.)
If anyone feels the risk is too great then it’s a personal choice for you to attend or not as you see fit.
I expect we will see the usual suspects and I wish I was coming along myself. Unfortunately I have a three line whip at a christening and I can’t get out of it.
The shoot after this is a Service Rifle so I will sort out a course of fire etc.
Enjoy

 

 

Scoped Rifle 1 and Work Party Update

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.

See you Sunday

 

The Penguin Sunday 16 February & a Work Party *Update *

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.

Service Rifle 1 Sunday 2 February – Update

Sunday’s shoot was the first Service Rifle shoot of the year. The scores are on the Results page – well shot all. An enjoyable day and we didnt get wet although it was muddy.

As ever we have Chris to thank for the photos below that give a good idea of the day enjoyed by all.

the next shoot is the Penguin – 2 x 10 with a 303 at 300 and a modern or TR at 600.

   

Practice Shoot

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.

Hero Shoot

A Happy New Year to all our members.

This also means you have to pay your subs by the end of the month or you won’t be a member any longer.

We had a busy shoot today with just under 30 shooters attending. No rain and plenty of interesting guns on show. We are grateful to Chris who is taking the role of our official photographer so below are a selection of photos of today’s activities.

See you at the next shoot that is a 100 / 200 practice.
