Service Rifle 4 Sunday 10 July Update & AGM

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?

See you then

Mc Queen Shoot Sunday 26 June Update

Update

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

Queens 2, Sunday 12 June – Update

Sundays shoot is a 2 x 10 at 300 / 500 / 600 yards. Nominally a TR shoot so the TR shooters will shoot on the first detail so as to avoid the MB rifles.

All are welcome so there will be a category for TR rifles and Scoped Rifles.

Not much more to say at this point so hopefully the weather will be fine and we will see you on Sunday

Update

Scores on the results page – Well Shot all. Great day enjoyed by all who attended (I think) Need more practice on this TR thing.

The next shoot is a McQueen at 300 so see you then.

Gallery Rifle – Sunday 29 May

Sundays shoot is Gallery Rifle at 100 yards to time to bring along the obscure for a short range shoot. You have done this before many times so you should be aware of how they run.

If you haven’t been along then why not?

See you on Sunday

Service Rifle 3 Sunday 15th Update

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

See you then

Sunday 1 May AGM Postponed

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!

See you then.

Tool Kit

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.

Classic McQueens Sunday 17 April Update

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

Update

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

Scoped Rifle 1 Sunday 6 March UPDATE

Update – Scores on the results page.

A busy and whilst dry it was very chilly. Some really good shooting given the target size and the that the time was kept fairly tight. Well done all, See you at the next one that is Gallery Rifle.

Sundays event is the Scoped Rifle shoot. The Course of Fire is on the COF page and will be shot between at 300, 500 and 600 yards, Weather and circumstances permitting.

This shoot may be subject to change on the day but the COF is the plan.

See you on Sunday
