Knight Cup / Gellibrand Shield Sunday 11 June

Sundays shoot is a Queens 2 with 2×10 at at 300, 500 and 600 yards. It should be a good opportunity to test your elevations and will require rifles to be zeroed before and attendees to be organised so it doesn’t take all day.

Target Rifles will shoot first followed by others and all are welcome so don’t be put off and waste an opportunity for a good days shooting in what will most likely be fine weather.

Perhaps Black Powder isnt the right thing to use but below is an excellent picture courtesy of Lee, caught just before Andy obscures the targets.

Service Rifle 3 Sunday 14 May Update


Fine weather and no rain, spring is hear and the sound of the spring lambs was shattered by the third Service Rifle Shoot of this hears program. A select band turned out with two new visitors to the range, Peter and Sam (we have another Sam) so this could get confusing!

The scores are on the results page so well shot all, Classic was won by Mark with his trusty M1 carbine and a score of 209 x250. In the modern class Kevin managed an impressive 250 x 250. To be fair the athletics and rifle weight of the day meant that he shot it all prone with a bipod so the true score to win was 214 buy yours truly with a modern scoped CISCAR and a x10 scope. Only 5 more than an iron sighted 80 year old carbine. The field is wide open so whatever you shoot then come along and have a try.

The next shoot is a Gallery Rifle and there is NO work party after so no reason to hide away. – See you then.

Sundays shoot is Service Rifle so bring yourself and about 52 rounds to the range for the SR shoot. I’m sure you all know the drill by now with categories for Classic and modern.

The program is on the Course of Fire page and is dated 14/5 so please take a look at the right one, be ready for the stages so we can move the day along promptly.

See you on Sunday and we will probably have to move the work party that was scheduled for the next shoot to later in the year as we are waiting for some sand to be delivered.

See you Sunday

Classic McQueens 200x Sunday 16th Update

Update –

Busy day with 15 details x 4 shooters so lots of opportunities to chase the extremely small V Bull!. Some excellent scores in the Modern category with Dan getting a 50.6 . Its a difficult shoot and much harder than it looks.

The classic was won by Steve with a 46 so with an 80 year old gun then that’s good going as well. Geoff wanted everyone to know he got a better score than me so I am duty bound to report this! We were in different categories and his 31 with a new gun doesn’t actually beat my 36 with an older one so not quite this time! (I think he meant my rather disappointing 4).

Still it was a great day and it was fine weather and a good turn out.

The next one is a Gallery rifle followed by a committee meeting, not the AGM as advertised, that will be later in the year.

Sundays shoot is the Classic McQueens at 200 yards. Primarily this is for classic sniper rifles but all scoped rifles are welcome and there will be a separate class for modern rifles.

The V bull is extremely small for 200 but don’t let that put you off as you have to hit the figure 14 first!

So lets hope for decent weather and we will see you on Sunday.

Service Rifle 2 Sunday 2 April – Update

Sundays shoot is Service Rifle and the Course of Fire is on the COF page with the date for 2nd April. Please have a read and be prepared.

I can warn you in advance there is a standing / kneeling stage so that’s something to look forward to!


Not too many people along today, not sure why as the weather was fine so a select band had an enjoyable day out. Whats not to like!

Scores on the results page – See you next time for the Classic McQueens

Sunday 19 March

Scoped Rifle 1 Sunday 5th -Update

Cracking shoot with a challenging course of fire and some good scores that are now posted on the results page. Well shot all – see you at the next one (Gallery Rifle).

Sundays shoot is scoped rifle and I have posed the COF on the Course of Fire page so you can study it in advance. Please be ready for each stage. You will need about 45 rounds to complete.

The shoot will be at 300, 500 and 600 yards so it should be interesting enough to keep you all amused.

See you then

Work Party Sunday 22 Update

Update The work party was a great success and we had a strong turnout so many thanks to those who decided to turn up to ‘give something back’. The club depends on volunteers so any help is greatly appreciated. We manged to clear the excess sand from the butts, clear the drains and cut back lots of foliage before it gets in the way.

A good clear up for junk that has accumulated in the butts area. Its was hard work and there are a few photos of the results on the pictures page.

We hope to have the Service Rifle shoot on the next shoot date so we are off to a good start for the year. See you then and thanks again for coming along.

Sundays work party is a team event so all are welcome! The focus is to work on the butts area ready for the season.

The tasks on the list are:-

Move the spare sand up the bank to the box’s

Tidy up all areas and sort out the target hut

Remove all the accumulated junk to the car park pending a skip removal

Clear the drains in the butts and under the targets

Trim the foliage from 80 yards to the butts to prevent blocking of the line of sight

There may be more that we can figure out on the day and don’t be afraid to recommend something (and perhaps do it).

Bring whatever tools you see as relevant, particularly things for trimming the branches back, some drills etc for repairing any targets that need maintenance, A bucket for moving the sand (Sand into buckets and passed by chain up the bank)

Stout gloves but we will work you hard enough to keep warm – See you Sunday for a 9:30 start

2023 Programme

Happy New Year to all. We are still waiting for the Home Office renewal to come through so no shooting just yet. Given the current weather we are cancelling the Hero shoot on 8th January and the next one on 22/1/23 will be a work party where we will be doing some work on the Butts area and getting it ready for the season.

So you can sort out your diaries for the coming year we have prepared the program for 2023. Clearly the shoots will be delayed if the HO approval is not forthcoming but we will update you as the dates arrive.

The relevant pages of this web site have been updated as needed and the current membership items are still to be sent to Chris but we will start handing over membership things to Steve once the renewals are out of the way.

The forms for download are available on the Programme 2023 page in Word and PDF as needed.

Keep an eye on the web site for updates and don’t over do it with the new year celebrations
