16 May 500 Practice Booking Open

Booking is now open for the next and hopefully the last of the pre-booked shoots.

Some of you have already sent in bookings (that makes this even more of a pain as it adds to the workload)

Anyway we hope to return to a more normal program of shooting after this shoot so get your bookings in and we will see what happens at the next stage of the lifting of restrictions.

So send in your bookings and, just a tip, if you want an early shoot then you need to book sooner rather than later.

See you on Sunday

200 Yard Shoot Booking Closed

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

Range Reopening

We hope to reopen the range with the first shoot on 4th April. It is going to be a 200 yard pre-booked event like we did last year. As its not clear if we can reopen yet and it all depends on the Government guidance etc.

When we know a bit more and have some confirmation we will open the booking and get sorted out the way we did last year.

Dont email now – its just a heads up at this point.

See you soon (We Hope)

Ted Molyneux

I regret to inform all of you that our former member, chairman, Secretary, President Ted Molyneux passed away at the weekend.

Ted was probably the longest serving member in the history of the Dorking and District Rifle Club. He joined the club before the outbreak of World War 2 and remained in service with the club until he resigned in 2013. During that time he helped the club through the war years and served as Secretary, Chairman and President, a post he occupied until his resignation from the club. Ted was a committed supporter of the club which will always owe him a debt of thanks for keeping it operating through some very difficult times.

Hope you are all doing ok and we look forward to continuing with the operation of the club when we can.

All the best

 

 

 

Practice Shoot

Some Pictures from the last practice (Thanks Chris) Looks like you had fun.

My view that day was a bit different – not as dramatic as it looked but you wouldn’t wander about!

Note there is a large gun safe that is free to someone to collect it (Its very heavy) and can be collected from somewhere in Wimbledon. If you are interested then the details are on the ad.

The next shoot is Service Rifle and I will sort out and post the COF when I get a minute.

Happy New Year  – Pay your subs or you are not going to be covered by the insurance after the end of the month.

Some pictures from today.

Contact us

For historic reasons we (I) have been reluctant to make much of the contact feature as there have been issues with all manner of unpleasantness in the past. That aside the ddrccttee@bt etc email address has been playing up and I can only get messages if I log directly into the server (I don’t do this often). I cant get anywhere with fixing this so please don’t use it any more as it wont get looked at.

We have a new general communication email for club items at

dorkingr@gmail.com

– should work a bit better.

 

Dont forget the Work Party on 18 May and the AGM on 9 June.
