Club Results for 7th April

Thirty members, visitors and guests assembled at Jubilee Range on a bitterly cold day for the first club shoot of the season. It was snowing lightly when we arrived and shot 400, moderately at 500, and more heavily at 600. Those who shot last at 600 struggled to see the targets through TR sights. The snow stopped immediately after shooting stopped.

Wind was minimal at 400 so scores were generally good, although not for those individuals who could not understand the appearance of magpies and outers until, too late, it was noticed that the monitor display was for F class! The only TR possibles were Kenny MacDonald’s at 400 and one apiece for Glen Senior and Glen Junior at 500. Glen Senior would have had another at 400 had he not declined to convert his two cooking bull sighters, so committing himself to a further 15 shots of which no. 14 was an inner. Thanks for confirming the temporal relationship between hubris and nemesis Simon!

F/TR possibles in these benign conditions were ten-a penny, but special mention must be given of Paul Crosbie’s 75v15 at 400 and his and Mike Barton’s possibles for the day; and of the possible shot by Hugh Inglis’s daughter Jodhi at her first full-bore shoot. Well done!

By the time we finished at 600, targets were indistinct.

Club Shoot 30th June

Total of 13 members shot the Club short range shoot on 30th June. Despite reports from those travelling from north, south and west of gale force winds on the way, Jubilee Range was relatively calm, but what wind there was proved rapidly changing and not easy to read for TR shooters not coming from Dulnain Bridge. The forecast rain held off until the start of detail 2 at 600, and lasted only 5 minutes.

Many thanks to all who helped with the various tasks.

Getting started on firing points 6,5 and 4 at 400. There's a token TR shooter in there somewhere.

Club Shoot 7th July

8 members and two visitors turned out on the best day of the year so far for the annual humiliation of shooting on a 300m ISSF display from 400 yards. Kenny MacDonald won for the second year running by a large margin. Tie-breaking X counts were discarded due to the confusion caused by scores of 10 showing on the monitors as X and scores of X showing as *. This was not a problem with 53 points between first and second in TR.

Presumably the council works department squad- one shooting, two watching.
Summer at last! Pete Dingle tops up his vitamin D level.

Club Shoot 11th August

23 members and 4 guests had a day of very mixed weather on 11th August. Heavy rain alternated with blue sky and wind varied from tricky to absent. Scores were not helped by the absence of flags at 400 and 500. We got some up for 600 yards where we shot an extra 5 shots for the postal match against Australia. Results of that match will be on the site when we hear from the Australians.

Club Shoot 1st September

16 club members and one guest turned out on a dull, blustery, but dry day suggesting the arrival of autumn is imminent.

Murray Cup 15th September

The forecast of appalling weather, and a competing event at Diggle, resulted in a very low turnout for the Murray Cup competition. Six members who had stayed overnight in Blair Atholl after the East of Scotland Open were joined by four who had " interesting" journeys on the day. To our surprise there was dead calm when we arrived. By 0930 we had a little gentle breeze for 500. We moved back to 600 and had just a little more breeze, but after that decided not to move to 900 but to shoot 600 again as the forecast was for the wind to triple in strength about noon, and we detectedd the first signs of that. As soon as we had made the decision the sky became blue, the sun shone and the wind disappeared, but we stuck to our guns and were glad we had done so. Halfway through the second shoot at 600 it became very stormy with poor visibility. Considering the forecast we were very lucky indeed. The competition was close with only two Vs separating the top two in TR and three Vs likewise in F/TR.

Club Shoot 29th Sept

21 members attended the club’s final long range shoot of the season which was not a shoot counting towards trophies. 14 members returned scorecards although not all had a complete 2+20 for the two distances and for some new members it was their first long range shoot. For some others there was a bit of experimentation taking place including one member confirming that the start of cataracts is seriously detrimental to his 1000 yard scores.
