HBSA Wappenshaw 2015

This year's Christmas Wappenschaw Competition will be held on the morning of Sat 05 December on Short Siberia range at 200 yards starting at 0830 hrs.  Closing date for entries: 27 Nov 2015.

  Wappenshaw Shoot £15                                                               Wappenshaw Lunch £17.50
   Online booking is now closed                                                            

Once again it will be a 'fun' competition open to most classes of rifles (but no HMEs please). It is hoped that all entrants will be able to shoot at least twice during the morning. The shoot will be followed by the usual traditional festive 3 course lunch at the ATSC Clubhouse at 1300 hrs. The bar will be open from 1215 hrs.

Guests are very welcome at both shoot and lunch, but only FAC holders at the shoot please.  To shoot, you and any guests must not be  'prohibited persons' under the Firearms Act and are in possession of a current FAC and the appropriate valid Certificate of Competency.
Course of Fire:
There will be a single course of fire for all classes - 2 marked sighters and 10 to count on an NRA round bull target with a white central 'V' Bull of 2 inch diameter. (This has been enlarged slightly since last year's competition).

V Bull : 5 points
Any hit within 'the black' 3 points
Other hits within square scoring area : 1 point

Rifle Classes:
1. Military .30 calibre (nominal) iron sighted rifles
2. Any rifle - optical sights
3. Large bore rifles (including Black Powder)
4. Iron sighted .22 RF only

Wappenschaw Competitors are encouraged to enter on line. Entry at the range 'on the day' is discouraged and may result in disappointment due to lack of range space. Closing date for entries: 27 Nov 2015

Lunch bookings MUST be made online before 27 Nov in order to firm up numbers for the ATSC chef. HBSA members and their guests who do not wish to shoot will be most welcome at the lunch.

Wappenschaw competition: £15 per person
(so long as you arrive in good time, you should get two shoots during the morning)
Lunch: £17.50 per person

I look forward to seeing as many of you as can attend to round off our shooting year.
