Dear Competitors 

Thank you for competing in this year’s Long Range Championship Meeting for Vintage, Classic, Veteran and First Generation Rifles.  The Results may be viewed here >>>
As I have said in previous years without your support these events would not take place.

We seemed to experience all types of weather during the day except snow, lucky us.
No wind at all first thing causing the Black Powder smoke to hang about, followed by a moderate to high wind blowing from left to right in the afternoon, a heavy rain storm in the morning that soaked everyone followed by very warm sunshine causing some of us to steam.

Entries were once more down on the previous years but still reasonably strong with 18 individuals.

With our usual band of travelling Riflemen from North Wales, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Belgium, Warwickshire and a few from deepest Surrey.

HBSA prize certificates will be prepared upon request and sent out ASAP.

I would very much like to thank all those who attended for their support and in particular, 
David Carroll who managed the target and marker bookings and acted as Range Conducting Officer with the assistance of Steve Isherwood & George Tondryk.

I hope everyone had a good day and that we see you all next year.

Best Regards 
Paul Smith

Please don’t forget that the Mid-Range will be held on Sunday 29th September.
You can enter online via the HBSA website.
I will be attending but David Carroll will be the organiser as I will be away for the 2 weeks prior to the shoot.
