Scoped Rifle 1 and Work Party Update

Scoped Rifle – Stop Press – No Rain and not too much wind!

This was a bit of a first for this shoot and a strong turnout with some excellent scores put in with some tricky conditions and difficult targets. This is a work in progress shoot and I still haven’t got it right so I will continue to refine it. It was fun though so looking forward to the next one.

Scores on the Results page.

Some pictures from Chris who is our official photographer.

See you at the next one – Gallery Rifle

And our driver

 

Firstly a big thanks to all of those who came along to the work party (some party!). Its really appreciated and we got some much needed repairs done. This included some very heavy work on the butts, 100 yard hut roof and 100 yard hand rails along with some other things.

Thanks again for turning out.

 

And so to the Scoped Rifle. As usuual this shoot is always challenged by the weather and this week will probably be the same.

We will give it a go and the course of fire is on the COF page but its below as well.

200301 Scoped Rifle 1

See you Sunday

 

The Penguin Sunday 16 February & a Work Party *Update *

Well those that came along got a bit wet but we enjoyed ourselves and had a good blast at 600. As it turned out it wasnt that bad and we hve dried everything out now.

Thanks again to Chris who took the photos and zeroed his new toy

See you at the work party on Saturday.

On a brighter note the weather for Saturday 22 February is looking like sunshine and clear. Thats good news as we have a work party on that day to do some work on the stop butts and the 100 yard hut roof (and other fun jobs besides) so if you feel like supporting the club (so there remains a club to support) then come along and lend a hand. We start at 9. If you bring biscuits we will happily share them.

Enjoy – roll on summer.

Service Rifle 1 Sunday 2 February – Update

Sunday’s shoot was the first Service Rifle shoot of the year. The scores are on the Results page – well shot all. An enjoyable day and we didnt get wet although it was muddy.

As ever we have Chris to thank for the photos below that give a good idea of the day enjoyed by all.

the next shoot is the Penguin – 2 x 10 with a 303 at 300 and a modern or TR at 600.

   

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.

Hero Shoot

A Happy New Year to all our members.

This also means you have to pay your subs by the end of the month or you won’t be a member any longer.

We had a busy shoot today with just under 30 shooters attending. No rain and plenty of interesting guns on show. We are grateful to Chris who is taking the role of our official photographer so below are a selection of photos of today’s activities.

See you at the next shoot that is a 100 / 200 practice.

The Boar Trophy Remberance Day Shoot Sunday 10 November (Update)

I am delighted to report we had a great turn out and the weather was kind to us.

The scores are on the Results page but are also below for ease of reference

191110 The Boar Hill Results

We had some great shooting but Wandsworth were well ahead with a score of 379.37. There were three team scores of 371 and it was decided on V Bulls with Horsham 371.31, Sussex CRA 371.25 and Dorking on 371.21. We did shift some people around into different clubs to make up teams of 4 but Wandsworth was all their own work!

Mark and his wife did sterling work on providing Bacon and Sausage Rolls and this was much appreciated by all. We raised over £200 for the Royal British Legion and I think there will be some more photos top post on the site later.

I am grateful to everyone who took part, Helped and made it all work.

Many thanks to you all and to our guests who are welcome back any time.

And I found my watch (don’t ask!)

The next shoot is Service Rifle 5

 

 

McQueen Shoot – Sunday 29 September

The shoot went ahead today as a practice at 600 on the electronic targets.

Those who braved the weather were rewarded as the rain stopped and we all had a very pleasant morning.

Pity about the shot dropped in the 5 but otherwise a good score was possible on the day. 300WM helps with the wind!

Its worth turning up as you never know the weather may be better than expected

See you for the next one that is a Gallery Rifle.

Barclay Cup (Results) Gravett Cup & Sussex Shoot (Sunday 1st) UPDATED

Update

Scores on the Results page but for those new to the site a further copy is below:-

190901 Gravett Cup and SCRA Autumn

We welcomed some shooters from the SCRA for their Autumn shoot and I took the liberty of making up a scratch team of 4 from each club. We had to (unfortunately!!) claim Rob B as a Dorking member who happened to be the top shot. With his first class score we managed to win this but a few points.

That aside it was a good day and I hope our visitors enjoyed themsleves and we look forward to seeing them again.

The Scoped Rifle Shooters put in some impressive scores so well done to their performance.

See you at the next one which is a Gallery Rifle.

Scores for the Barclay cup are now on the Results page, Apologies for the delay.

This weekends shoot is a Queens 2 TR (2×10 @ 300/5/6) – thats the plan depending on time and targets. We are to be joined by a delegation from the Sussex County Rifle Assocation for their Autumn shoot as well.

The shoot is primarily a TR shoot so we will get the TR shooters through first at each distance and then the scoped, followed by the loud ones. There will be plenty of room for everyone though so don’t be put off and no one is excluded etc.

We will have to move things along promptly so please be organised and ready to go when its your turn.

See you on Sunday
