The Penguin Trophy Updateed

Sundays shoot is the Penguin Trophy that is 2×10 at 300 with a .303 and 2×10 at 600 with a 7.62 target rifle. The TR shooters will go first and then everyone else can shoot and we will organise it so the muzzle brakes don’t upset anyone.

Horsham will be putting in a team although you will probably recognise them.

Update

Scores posted to the results page. The team even was shot with teams of Three and was won by Horsham with 248.16 against our 233.6. We seem to be a bit limited on TR shooters at the moment and had to  let two of ours shoot for Horsham. Still it was fun to dig out the 303’s and try to get a decent score on a modern 7.62 target.

It was a good day and all those who turned up enjoyed it.

The next one is a Scoped Rifle so I will try to think up a course of fire that is both challenging and doesn’t take all day to get through – no pressure then.

The Hero Shoot, sunday 6 January

Happy New Year to you all

Even Happier to those who have renewed their membership for 2019 – Thanks

Sundays Shoot is the Hero shoot, so-called as its likely to be cold and only Heroe’s will turn up. We will start at 100 yards on the Gallery targets and may fall back to 200 yards if there is sufficient demand (and persons willing to go to the Butts)

You can bring what you like to shoot providing it’s within the range limits and legal etc.

See you Sunday

Santa did appear and who would have guessed he was sorting a Garand

A rare beast

So thanks to all for your support over the year. Happy Christmas

Service Rifle 5 Sunday 25 November 2018 Update

Busy day but a bit damp. Luckily the Gazebos came in handy so we were able to keep the kit dry.

Some pictures from the day – Including our top lady shot.

Scores on the results page – well shot all. The next shoot is the Christmas bash.

The things we do know about the christmas shoot:-

There will be some sausage rolls ir similar afterwards

There will be some mince pies (if you bring some)

You will need to bring a wrapped gift to the value of £5.00 by way of an entrance fee.

The course of fire will depend on whether Andy & Andy are able to fix the electronic targets – It is a timely reminder of why we ask you to make sure your gun is zeroed and you know how to use it. Last time we had them out the wire got shot!

See you in two weeks

The Boar Trophy

I know it’s a bit late but I have posted the Scores page and they confirm that Horsham won with 372.31.  Not wanting to be a bad sport but they had to use two Dorking members to do so!

Anyway it was a good day and the Gazebos saved us from the weather and more importantly we were delighted to see Barry with his cook out gear producing perfect venison sausages in abundance.  Barry has provided the catering for this event for several years and he refuses to take any payment from us for the materials. We are eternally grateful for this and on behalf of all of us – Thanks Barry!

We raised £240 for the Royal British Legion. We marked the start and end of the two minutes silence by firing a single shot from an SMLE – what else could we use!

So thanks to all who took part, contributed and enjoyed themselves.

Remember we run the club for our benefit so if you didn’t come along then why not? The Sausages alone are worth the price of admission.

See you at the next one There are some pictures below .
