First – Shooting update
Based on the latest Gov restrictions and the advice from BASC I figure we are ok to continue as we are as we are currently meeting the guidelines / Restrictions.
You can read the advice in full from BASC here:- Click here
It looks as if we are ahead of the game on this and we remain compliant. It remains for all those attending to be vigilant and not to hang around before or after your shoot. There must be at least 2m distance between those waiting to shoot and those shooting / finishing their shoot. Please comply.
With that in mind I have opened the booking early and I will publish the list next Friday 25th.
We have been discussing the possibility of having a 100 yard Gallery Shoot. We can only use 4 targets per detail and we might have to shorten the shooting a bit to cover the need to change / patch the targets.
The sticking point is the time to patch up and the patches themselves. So if we run this you will need to bring your own patches so we don’t share anything.
If you are interested in a Gallery shoot and you are booking a slot for the next shoot and are interested in a Gallery shoot and if you are prepared to provide your own patches then let me know. If there is enough interest we will run one.
Be careful and see you soon.
Bookings for Sunday is now closed. The list is confirmed below:-
200927 Range Booking 300x
Dont forget to be careful and leave the range after your shoot.
See you Sunday.
It seems I have got the dates a bit muddled again and we are shooting on consecutive weeks. So the next shoots is on Sunday 13 September 2020
It’s a 200 Practice and the usual rules on booking apply.
200913 200x Range Booking
Note – Updated
See the note below on the number of people on the range. As the rules are changing we have to be more careful with not having too many people on the range so we will be stricter with people arriving early or hanging about. I have read the Gov guidelines (feel free to have a look) but We fall under Organised Sporting Events so we are ok but please do your bit.
We had a great shoot at 600 today but I have to remind members that the shooting is only allowed on the understanding that you turn up in reasonable time for your shoot and leave immediately afterwards.
There were too many people hanging about after their shoots. It’s great to see you and I know you want to catch up and talk about all the stuff we all chat about but please can I ask you to leave the range and car part after your shoot and chat elsewhere. We cannot afford to attract attention and make it look like a mass gathering.

Booking schedule confirmed,
See you on 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
The next shoot is 300 yards and booking is closed

The squadding is above
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
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.
