Shot at 300 and 600 today due to an issue with the 500 electrical supply we had a busy day but conducted promptly and avoiding any rain – always a bonus.
Scores are on the results page. Both the TR and the scoped Rife were won with possibles so no problems with the standard of the shooting.
In all a very pleasant day.
The next shoot will be a 100 yard Gallery rifle so see you then.
I thought I would a comment on yesterdays shoot. I should have made it clearer in the range briefing so I will say in now in the hope that we remember for the next time.
When shooting a competition the comp card has to be shot first and if the COF is 2×10 (two Sighters and ten to count) then you shoot two sighters and then ten to count not unlimited practice shots until the rifle is zeroed and then 2×10. Also if you shoot on the wrong target then the score is 0 (you missed).
We all shoot under the broad NRA rules and the comps have to be fair. That’s why you mark each others targets and call out the score you are recording. Lets try to do better at the next one and I will try to make it clearer in the briefing.
There is no competition at the Gallery Shoot! so see you then.
Steve G has asked me to mention the above book that I’m sure a number of you in the club have a copy of.
Its an excellent read and the initial print run of signed copies has sold out. Steve lent his copy to a club member before lock down and he would like it back.
So if you have Steve’s copy of this book please return it (its not yours).
Steve is offering a pint as a reward for your honesty.
Sundays shoot is a 500 /600 event so see you then.
Great shoot today and a strong turnout, We managed to dodge the poor weather and there was some good shooting. Its a while since we have managed to shoot one of these and this made it interesting for some.
The scores are on the results page
See you at the next one that is the Barclay Cup that is at 500 and 600. All welcome and we will see you then.
As part of our revised program we will be holding the Penguin Trophy that is historically a match against Horsham. Its usually held early in the year (hence the name, as its usually cold). Its a bit academic as most of the Horsham members are members of Dorking but we will work something out.
Im not sure if Horsham are going to put in a team (we might win) but we will hold it anyway.
The course of fire is 2 x 10 at 300 with a 303 and 2 x 10 at 600 with a 7.62 TR.
We will allow other rifles to take part so no one is excluded so come along in the spirit of the event those who wish to do the comp can do so and everyone else can shoot what they have and take part.
The scores are on the Results page. It was a hot day so those that turned out were grateful for a quick blast and home to the sunshine. This was nominally the Penguin Shoot and as Horsham didn’t put in a team we actually wont it!
I have to admit that digging out the target rifle after so long proved that I need to try harder! Still it was fun and I hope everyone enjoyed it.
The next shoot is the McQueen on the 27th so see you then
UPDATE Scores on the Results page – well done all – Good fun, See you on the next one.
Is back to normal so the next shoot will be a Service Rifle on Sunday 23 May. We are taking a cautious approach to reopening more fully so please be sensible.
Its been a while since we have done one of these so just to remind you we will start at 09:30 with the first detail at 100 yards and take it from there. You will need around 52 rounds to include sighters and you will be expected to do your turn in the buts (maybe more than once) and we will be mixing on the range all at the same time.
The club house will be open at times for signing in but will be locked during the shoot as we will be at the other end of the range.
The course of fire is below:-
Please read the COF in advance and be at the range on time wilt all your kit in time for a 09:30 Start. It will take us a while to remember how it all works but I think most of us are looking forward to a change or pace. If there are any questions then contact me via the club address.
Please note the revised shooting program for the remainder of the year.
See you on Sunday
With a view to the lifting of the restrictions the site has been updated with a revised shooting program (Back to Normal) for the remainder of the year.
The next shoot on 23/5 is Service Rifle so instead of booking it will start at 09:30 just like the old days.
The booking is closed for the next shoot. Sold out even faster than normal!
Provisional list link below
See you on Sunday
The weather for Sunday looks a bit dodgy so don’t be surprised if we shift the shoot to 600 yards to get some cover in between details etc. Saves the kit getting too wet.
Booking is now closed or the next shoot on Sunday 2 May
The Booking is in the link below
Note – since WordPress was updated to an ‘updated Version’ its really awkward to insert links the way the perfectly good old version used to do – apparently its progress! (FFS)
Looking a bit further ahead we may get a stage on from the restrictions from Monday 17 May so after that date we may be back to being unrestricted so expect a revised program with us all being able to meet without a booking and I will add some different events. I’m Thinking Service Rifle and McQueen and some sort of comp with some recorded scores.
We wont know what to do with ourselves!
Until then we go on as we are and maintain a cautious approach
Booking is now closed for the next shoot on Sunday 18th and will be at 600 yards.
Squadding details in below link
See you then.
As expected the available slots were taken quickly and the shoot is now full
The booking is therefore closed.
The details are as below:-
See you on Sunday and please remember we are subject to the rule of 6 and so please do not hang around before or after your shoot.
