Successful Work Day - Sunday 12th February 2017

 

Sunday's work day went well, all sixteen who said they would help, turned up together with two others.

Eighteen is a very good effort, I received apologies from eleven members who had previous commitments or were in Africa! At least another dozen were not able to help for health reasons and others live an unreasonable distance from the range to expect them to help. There were very few probably around ten who presumably have heart and kidney problems, heart lazy or kidnae be bothered. They know who they are!

We have completely cleared our workshop ready for the new tenant and all club targets are in their frames and covered from the weather. All target faces are in the shed and all spares and materials are in the back shed, where there is now a distinct lack of space.

Richard Scott has some minor wiring work still to be completed and he is due many thanks for re-wiring all targets and enclosing the cables in trunking to make them rodent proof. We also have six superb Siberian Larch tarp support rails to fit, these thanks to the good work of Alan Manson. Downside is that we now need additional counterweights to re-balance the frames, all offers of suitable weights are welcome.

Thanks are also due to all those who brought trailers yesterday, these made a tremendous difference and saved us a lot of time.

Fingers crossed that all systems work as expected, when we start the system.

Home Office Approved Club - New Fees Proposals

The Home Office has published a consultation which seeks views on the implementation of new fees for firearms licences that are issued by the Home Office including fees for Approval of shooting clubs.

The proposals are based on setting the level of fees at rates that allow full cost recovery; the view of the NRA is that the rates quoted are wholly disproportionate to the actual work required and are either incorrectly calculated or represent a fundamentally inefficient processes.
