Stay At Home!

It is with regret that we have to announce that shooting is suspended until further notice. We cant take the risk anyway and will review the situation as the news progresses.

We will provide an update when we know more and hopefully be able to restart events later in the year.

Stay safe

 

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.

Work Party

The work party took place on Saturday and a massive thanks to those who took part in it. The club relies on volunteers and whilst I know many of you have other commitments (me as well) We all owe a huge debt to those who gave their time.

Amongst a long list of tasks the team managed to:-

creosote all the outside furniture and huts, fix some hand rails, add a wider bridge at 100 so we don’t have to get Phil out of the ditch, fixings for the 4th McQueens target and at long last resurrect the 100 shelter and shift a load of Sand up to the butts.

The photos below show the results but don’t really do justice to the effort involved.

When the next call goes out then please see if you can contribute as well.

Thanks again to all

 

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.
