Club Results for 2nd April
Our first shoot was particularly well attended and delayed for various reasons.
At the start we were delayed due to a simple wiring fault of our own making on target 6, where two acoustic sensors were wired to the wrong positions on the circuit board. The result of this was that high shots were indicated low and vice versa.
Correcting on these indicated shot positions quickly leads to madness, so we stopped the shooting and corrected the wiring. This probably caused around a thirty minute delay.
The rest of the time lost was due to the extreme slowness of members getting into position and in filling in vacant targets. It also took a long time to move between 500 & 600.
Shooting at 600 did not finish till around 1530 hrs and the general feeling was that changing target faces to shoot 400, would result in a very late end to the day.
It was decided that those who wanted to shoot again would shoot a non counting 2 + 10 at 500 yards, the advantage being that people could then leave the range. (Not possible from 600 whilst shooting is in progress)
The weather was kind, with no need for gazeebos, and a light breeze.

Club Results for 16th April
Our first long range shoot of the calendar was well attended by 26 shooters from West Atholl and the NRCofS.
Conditions were wet to begin with and warranted the use of the gazebos which had been stored in the target shed over the winter, unfortunately we soon discovered evidence of rodent activity with two of the canopies sporting increased ventilation.
The first detail was interrupted by a communication fault but it was corrected and the target systems performed reliably for subsequent details at 900x and the change to 1000x. At the end of the day a sample of shots reported to have landed in the white was cross referenced with a visual inspection of the refaced targets to gauge the accuracy of the newly refurbished systems and we’re pleased to report the fall of shot is being accurately displayed on the firing point monitors. Winds were light but by no means static with numerous 4.9s and quite a few 3.9s being recorded throughout the day.
