HBSA '4 TYPES' COMPETITION 2018 - Match Report

SHOT AT 100 YARDS ON SHORT SIBERIA RANGE BISLEY SUNDAY 29 JULY

The 6 week spell of hot, dry weather broke dramatically on the morning of this competition and the 23 entrants who gathered at Bisley for this popular event were greeted by heavy and persistent rain.
The HBSA gazebos were hastily erected (thank you David Carroll) and they provided some welcome shelter.

The single course of fire (5 rounds single snaps and 5 rounds rapid ) gave some closely contested shooting, but interestingly, there were no 'possibles' all morning.
Note that only your first attempt with a rifle counted as a score. Re-shoots did not !

The Butt party coped admirably with the wet targets, with patches frequently falling off as shots struck the faces. One contestant had at least 15 holes in his target after 10 shots !
Hopefully, the weather will be kinder for this event when repeated in the same format in 2019.

Congratulations to all the winners and my sincere thanks to all who helped out on the Firing Point.

One very important plea to all contestants – you MUST complete and sign the Range Register BEFORE you take your squadding cards.
