The shoot went ahead today as a practice at 600 on the electronic targets.
Those who braved the weather were rewarded as the rain stopped and we all had a very pleasant morning.
Pity about the shot dropped in the 5 but otherwise a good score was possible on the day. 300WM helps with the wind!
Its worth turning up as you never know the weather may be better than expected
See you for the next one that is a Gallery Rifle.
Scores on the Results page but for those new to the site a further copy is below:-
190901 Gravett Cup and SCRA Autumn
We welcomed some shooters from the SCRA for their Autumn shoot and I took the liberty of making up a scratch team of 4 from each club. We had to (unfortunately!!) claim Rob B as a Dorking member who happened to be the top shot. With his first class score we managed to win this but a few points.
That aside it was a good day and I hope our visitors enjoyed themsleves and we look forward to seeing them again.
The Scoped Rifle Shooters put in some impressive scores so well done to their performance.
See you at the next one which is a Gallery Rifle.
Scores for the Barclay cup are now on the Results page, Apologies for the delay.
This weekends shoot is a Queens 2 TR (2×10 @ 300/5/6) – thats the plan depending on time and targets. We are to be joined by a delegation from the Sussex County Rifle Assocation for their Autumn shoot as well.
The shoot is primarily a TR shoot so we will get the TR shooters through first at each distance and then the scoped, followed by the loud ones. There will be plenty of room for everyone though so don’t be put off and no one is excluded etc.
We will have to move things along promptly so please be organised and ready to go when its your turn.
See you on Sunday
Sadly there is the Ride London going around Dorking on Sunday 4th so the shoot is cancelled as we wont be able to get to the range.
Sorry about that
See you next time
Scoped Rifle Shoot 2 CANCELLED
Scores posted to the results page. A good day for the few that braved the damp weather. Some good shooting by all and a good, if a little damp day. I thought it was summer!
Scores on the results page. Some good shooting but we have seen better. Still having a fourth target in play made the shooting faster with less hanging about.
Those who attended had a good time and after a slow start there were a few 50’s. This is a shoot that is harder than it looks.
The next shoot is Service Rifle so see you then.
The weather was fine and we had a good turn out for the shoot.
The scores are on the results page. The shoot was based on a 3/5/6 2×10 fired with the A Whyte being 300 & 500 and the Gellibrand Shield being 500 & 600.
We held the AGM afterwards and that went off without a hitch so its business as usual. See you at the next one, Modern Mc Queens.

Some pictures from today.
For historic reasons we (I) have been reluctant to make much of the contact feature as there have been issues with all manner of unpleasantness in the past. That aside the ddrccttee@bt etc email address has been playing up and I can only get messages if I log directly into the server (I don’t do this often). I cant get anywhere with fixing this so please don’t use it any more as it wont get looked at.
We have a new general communication email for club items at
– should work a bit better.
Dont forget the Work Party on 18 May and the AGM on 9 June.
