Work Party

The Work Party this weekend is cancelled. It will be in a few weeks when we can get the sand delivered. Watch this space.

Knight Cup/Gellibrand Shield – Updated

Sundays shoot is the above that this year is being shot as a Queens 2.  That is to say 2×10 at 3/5/6 TR first detail followed by Scoped etc.

See you then

We have a work party coming up and  it may be next weekend but we have yet to finalise the details so keep an eye on the site for an announcement.

Good day and was pretty busy. There was a bit of a delay to get going as we discovered some local wasps had built a nest in the 300 yard junction box. This had to be humanely removed before we could get going (a broom and a foot). No injuries reported. Some good shooting and excellent scores but unfortunately not from the TR contingent! could try harder.

No firm news yet on the proposed work party so keep an eye on the web for news. The Scores are on the results page.

Service Rifle 3, Sunday 13 May – Updated

A great day with better weather than anticipated so that was a bonus.

The scores are on the results page, well shot to all and in particular Steve G in the classic category (188) and Bob S in the modern (200).

I was going to have a rant about all the black patches being used up but then I realised that the course of fire and attendance was about 1000 rounds in the morning. Not all those hit but it uses up the patches. At least we have plenty in stock this time.

Some pictures of the day

The next shoot is a Gallery Rifle so bring the toys along. Some who got a less than perfect scores maybe coud do with doing some zeroing!

See you then.

Sundays Practice

It Didnt Rain!    It Snowed!

Still it didn’t stop us and we had a chilly but enjoyable shoot. The next one is Service Rifle and I will post the course of fire at some point before the shoot.

See you then. Make sure you have paid your membership before you come to the shoot.

A Whyte, Garrick Cup and some Photos

Update

Scores added to the results page – well shot everyone some great scores, particularly from Euan R who managed a 149.23. Pretty Good shooting and the competition was tight at the top. I think its time to make the targets smaller!

The warning to the TR shooters was well heeded as we had a total turn out of  – 4. Disappointing. Still there was plenty of room for everyone.

On a brighter note Graham B.s’ son-in-law Andy Caton cam along to the last Gallery Rifle shoot and took some excellent photos. They show the club in its true ethos, namely a collection of shooters (men and women) enjoying a day out and their sport. Long may this continue. The photos are excellent and don’t show anyone really in an angle where they can be identified but if you have any objection to an image that you think is you then contact the club and I will remove the image. See the Photos Page.

The AW and G cups are on the programme for tomorrow, Sunday 29 October. It is a TR shoot with 2×15 at 300 and 500 yards. Scoped Rifles are welcome to shoot alongside.

Note to the TR boys – this is a bit of a use it or lose it event. I am about to work on next years program and the some of these events are not well supported from a TR point of view. We can use the range time more widely for more popular shoots if they remain poorly supported.

I have managed to sort out some of the scores for the Barclay and these have now been posted. See you tomorrow and make sure you respond to the home office consultation on Firearms restrictions.
