Crosses Team Shoot
The 'Scottish' 2019
2019 Tullibardine FTR Class
The entry form has the category of TRF, as defined. After discussion with FTR shooters and with WARC committee, we shall have a trial run of a further category of "FTR according to NRA rules" (including any bullet weight and shooting at an F class target). I cannot guarantee that there will be trophies for this category this time round: it is a trial run, to be reviewed at the WARC AGM.
If you want to enter this caregory, please add "NRA FTR" to the form you download, AND email me separately to emphasise the addition.
Squadding limitations may need a cap on entries in each category. That would be done on a first come, first served basis: a good reason to enter now.

Club Shoot - 19th May
We had a a good turnout with nearly 30 members putting in an appearance. The weather was changeable throughout the day with winds coming from our backs and bringing occasional showers up Glen Tilt. Scoring was generally high but quite a number of members missed out on an HPS with fickle tail winds taking a shot into the inner. A special mention should go to our new member, Vlad Dasiukevich with his high score of 225.35 (Club TFR) shot with his a .223 Rem rifle.
West of Scotland 2019 Championships
Range improvements - 23rd March
Work on the range continued yesterday 23 March. The 2 Pauls and Des concreted in the base for the new Flag pole at 800 yds while your Chairman dug out and filled in the depression in the upper firing point at 400 yds and relaid the turf. John and Richard carried out some target work and confirmed that shots through the Vee are registering nicely on the monitors. What else do we need to know!
First club shoot is next Sunday. Road widening work has started just north of Perth with a contraflow operating for 5 miles on a 40 mph speed limit. Give yourself an extra 15 minutes if coming that way.
Range improvements - 10th March
Targets installed in frames however no practice shoot happened for weather related reasons. Instead a new gate designed and constructed with mortice and tenon joints by Alan Manson was fitted aided by Des Parr, John Potter and Jak. Many thanks Alan.
Separately, work was carried out at the 200 yard firing point to form an additional lie for use by BDS and SGA.
