SRA Mini Tour

Brockholes and Altcar visit 20th/21st August 2011

Lindsay Peden, Scottish captain writes:-

A Scottish team visited Brockholes (Nr Huddersfield) on the 20th August and Altcar on the 21st August. At both locations we were given a very warm welcome.

On the Saturday we shot against Huddersfield Rifle Club at 200 and 500 yards in an uncoached shoot, using their electronic targets. The match scores are on the attached spreadsheet. On Sunday, we shot against a team from the County of Lancaster at Altcar. We were joined by Susan Webb who lives locally and shot a team of 11 against their twelve, with the highest 10 counting for the match (see attached). The match was a coached shoot at 300/500 and 600 yards.

We were lucky with the weather at both ranges, with the only rain falling heavily on our drive from Brockholes to Southport late on Saturday afternoon. It should be noted that the National Match is expected to be shot at Altcar on the weekend 26/27th May 2012, subject to Wales and Ireland being able to field teams, so it was a good opportunity for some of the those in contention for places in the match to have a look at and shoot on the Altcar range.
