Update – Scores are on the results page – well shot everyone. It was quite tricky and the times were tight on some stages, (as I found out) still if it was too easy it wouldn’t be interesting. Note – The results have been updated as I first posted the wrong file and then missed Mark V off. Apologies all It should be ok now.
The next shoot is a practice at 500 and 600. We may have to amend this to 300 and 600 as the undergrowth is a bit high making 500 a bit tricky at the moment. See you then.
Sundays shoot is Scoped Rifle 2. We will be at 300, 500 and 600 yards. The course of fire is on the COF page so have a look and be prepared. If there is time there may be the opportunity for some extra shooting at 600 once the schedule has completed.
We may have trouble at 500 seeing the targets (foliage growth) but we will see how it looks on the day.
See you on Sunday.
AGM Update – We held the AGM after the last shoot and it was completed without and issues. We have re-elected the current committee and its generally Business as Usual. The accounts are slightly in deficit as it costs a fair but to run things and the fees don’t really cover it. Unfortunately the fees are going up to £140 for non NRA members and £120 for NRA Members for the next renewal. Its still only about £6 per shoot so its still good value and we endeavor to keep costs as low as possible. I cant remember how long it is since we increased the prices and its a sign of the times.
We are always open to suggestions or questions from the members so if you wish to ask something or make a suggestion then feel free. Just remember that the club is run by volunteers.
The next shoot is a 300 and 500 practice and the AGM will be held afterwards as we now have the accounts to hand and need to complete the AGM that has been delayed for a few years for the usual reasons.
Update – Hot day but pleasant in the shade! Enjoyed by those who came along. Scores are on the results page.
AGM 24 July at 1pm. The next shoot is a 300 and 500 practice and the AGM will be held afterwards as we now have the accounts to hand and need to complete the AGM that has been delayed for a few years for the usual reasons.
See you then
Sundays shoot is Service Rifle 4 and the COF is on the Course of Fire Page. Please have a read in advance and be prepared as I expect that we will be fairly busy (Given the heath fire at Bisley!)
So you know how these work, 52 rounds min and varied practices to keep you on your toes. Good weather so Whats not to like?
Scores are on the results page. To save blushes of some I have not named (and shamed) those who had trouble with the wind and missed. Well shot all, we have done better but it was breezy and there was a lot of heat haze.
We welcomed a team from Seal RPC who came along for an informal shoot. I took the top 4 scores from each club and posted Dorking with 198.28 (ex 200/40) and Seal with 147.14. to be fair to our guests it was an unfamiliar range so I’m sure they will thrash us next time.
Seal very kindly provided a trophy for the top score that went to Dan T with 50.7 so we are very grateful for that and made me feel a bit guilty we didn’t provide a similar gesture. I will think of something suitable next time.
So a busy day and great fun. The next one is a Service Rifle. – See you then.
Sundays Shoot is a McQueen at 300 yards. We are hosting some visitors from the Seale Rifle Club so there will be about 6 extra faces for an informal competition. Please make them welcome.
Most of you know the drill for the McQueen so be ready, prepare your kit and pray for good weather and working radios
Update – Scores now posted on the results page. Well shot everyone, We dodged most of the weather so that was a relief although we got a bit damp. Anyway its better than work so it was enjoyable. See you on the next one that is Gallery Rifle.
See you then.
Sundays shoot is Service Rifle 3. The course of fire is now on the COF page.
Read the COF and be ready!, About 54 rounds required, you know the drill
We will have to delay the AGM by a few weeks as we have not been able to get the accounts signed off yet. We have three years to present and want these to be finalised before presentation to the members.
There isn’t anything in particular to be concerned about, we made a small loss due mostly to the maintenance costs and a largely fixed income. As you know the membership is fairly cheap and there is no range fee but stuff needs replacing so there is a stead cost for repairs. We have plenty of funds in the investment account that is doing well.
Anyway we will have to delay the AGM for a few weeks and when we have all the items we need we will announce new date. If anyone has any questions regarding this the just let me know.
So Sundays shoot is just the Gallery Rifle, No AGM, More time for shooting!
As you probably know it takes a fair bit of effort to keep everything fixed and running on the range (stuff gets shot at!). When we remember we bring along the relevant tools to sort things out. The last McQueens shoot had all the targets created that morning. Luckily we had the wood to hand and I remembered to pack the tools.
This is a bit of a pain and we are going to invest in a tool kit for the club so we have some basic tools to hand. Before we spend any money I was wondering if any of the members had some tools they would like to donate to the cub?
We are after a basic tool kit with a box, some hammers, say and screwdrivers (screws) etc. We aren’t looking for a garage sale but if any of you have some duplicates and unwanted items then we would be grateful.
The next shoot is a Gallery Rifle and probably the AGM afterwards.
Sundays Shoot is the Classic McQueens so its time to dust off the classic Sniper Rifles. Its at 200 yards but the targets are still on the small side!
The results (probably not available till Monday) will be separated between Classic and Modern rifles. Scoped rifles only as open sights are not really any use for this and you end up shredding the target frames.
So the course of fire is well known to all members and you are all welcome. The shoot can be time consuming so please be ready and do your turn (s) in the butts.
See you on Sunday
Scores are on the results page – Separated between Classics and Modern rifles. Well shot all. The shoot is harder than it looks and the target is very small and fleeting, Still its fun. I have added some pictures below and aside from the AI’s there was a single shot and a classic L42. See you at the next one that is a Gallery Rifle and the AGM
