Club Results for 5th April

Twenty-two members and three visitors attended the season opener on a sunny and warm spring Sunday. The light right wind strengthened slightly during the day and by the start of the 600yds yards shoot was fishtailing left and right.

Club Results for 19th April

Twenty six members, a guest and a visitor turned out for the first long range shoot of the year and were joined at 1000yds by 3 further NRCS members plus grandson. Glen Tilt was beginning to shed its winter garb after several days of superb weather. The sun shone all day but, as the red flag shows, the wind was far fresher than the forecast 4mph. Several rapid rises and falls caused trouble, especially at 1000yds, to the extent that only 18 score cards were considered fit to hand in.

Club Results for 10th May

Thirteen members and one visitor attended the second short range shoot and inconsiderately, the weather obeyed the forecast of light to heavy rain for most of the day.

Club Results for 28th June

Twenty-six members and one Visitor turned out on the nearest available date to the 70th Anniversary of the first shoot of West Atholl Home Guard Rifle Club. We shot the usual 2+15 at 4, 5 and 600 for the Club shoot and added five rounds at 600 for the anniversary trophies, concurrent with the postal match against our sister club in Perth, Australia. Despite heavy rain early in the morning as most of us were leaving home, we shot in dry sunny weather apart from a delay as we started 600 due to a short torrential downpour which obscured the targets. Most of us stayed on for an excellent tea at the Atholl Arms. Here's to the next 70 years !

Winner of 300m @ 400yds - Kenny MacDonald

Eleven members turned up for the annual humiliation of shooting from 400yds with a 300m ISSF target display. Apart from a very short downpour as we started, the weather was fine and warm for the whole shoot.

The F CLass and F/TR trophies have gone walkabout so only the TR trophy- which has a permanent safe home in Dulnain Bridge- could be presented.

Club Results for 900/1000yds 9th August
Walther was setting up a rifle, not shooting for score. Having encouraged Claire to a very good score at 900 he prepares to do the same at 1000. I thought it better not to enquire about the purpose of the belt.

Twenty-one members and visitors attended the Club long range shoot on 9 August, with 17 shooting for scores. The day stayed dry until the last 15 minutes. Wind from behind was gentle at 900 and a little more tricky at 1000. Thanks to those who set up and closed down and especially to Mark Guest who did armoury duty at each end of the day as well as being duty member and running the day smoothly: also to Kenny and John McR. who fixed the double fault in the sanitary facilities.

Club Results for 400/500/600yds 30th August

Twenty members and five other shooters attended a fine day with excellent visibility and a light but testing breeze. The first detail at 400 yards was particularly difficult for the pair shooting on target 5, the next pair wisely chose to select the ‘NRA 400 yard target’ option on the monitor!

Murray Cup Results 13th September

The severe weather at the East of Scotland Open on Saturday smashed four of our 5/600 faces so the 15 members and a visitor shot 2+15 at 400 and 2+15 twice at 900, instead of the planned 2+15 at 400, 500 and 900 yds. The day stayed dry with only a gentle breeze. Thanks to John Potter who ran a well-organised day, and to those who closed down the range.

Cup Results 27th September

When 15 members and a guest arrived at Jubilee Range to shoot 900 and 1000yds for the last Club shoot of the season there was perfect light and not a breath of wind. It should have been "possibles all round" -at least for those who could shoot through clouds of midges. During the lunch break the wind rose to dispel the midges and the good scores, rising and falling rapidly and swinging from 3 right to 1 1/2 left.

Many thanks to Des who was Duty Member and ran the day very effectively as well as doing armoury duty at both ends of the day and almost all the RCO duty.

On 11 Oct we shall have a shoot at 500yds then dismount the targets, prepare them for transport off-site and close down the range for the winter. Please let us have a good turn-out from able-bodied members to share the load.

The AGM will be on Sunday 29 November. This will be members' chance to have a say in the running of the club, to elect a new Hon Sec and Chair, and elect or re-elect the Treasurer, Vice-chairman and committee. Let us also have a good attendance for that.
