Due to the worsening situation with the Covid-19 virus, we have taken the decision to cancel this years meeting. Holders of last years trophies, please hold onto them till the situation improves.
Range Rigging Day
The range is now rigged ready for the start of this season.
We had a good turn out to help with the work required and this makes the job much easier to complete. Many thanks are due to all who helped on the day.
We fitted a new aerial in the butts and the system operated flawlessly during the afternoon practice shoot. Thanks are due to Richard Scott for procuring the parts and fitting them.
Work to complete the butts steps and to improve access to our water supply system is planned. Thanks are due to Paul Crosbie for procuring the materials and delivering them to the range.
A new wind flag was also installed at the 800 yard position.
Let us hope that the weather improves before our first competitive shoot on Sunday 29th March.
8th March - Target Rigging
Our customary target rigging day will take place on the 8th of March with a 400y shoot afterwards. A heathy turnout should make for lighter work and some decent time on the range to blow those cobwebs out.
