HBSA Midland Rook & Rabbit Rifle Competition @ Stourport on Severn, 3rd October 2015

posted 4 Oct 2015, 03:07 by Tony Cattermole
We were once again privileged to be able to use the range at Stourport on Severn which is an excellent venue; it provides a covered firing point with plenty of room.

I would very much like to thank the Committee and Members of Stourport on Severn Rifle club for allowing us the use of their range, and their continued support.

In particular Chris Gray for all his hard work in the face of adversity and we all wish him well with his continuing treatment. Also special mention must go to Mrs Boulton who supplied some excellent biscuits to go with the tea & coffee.

The weather this year was a slight disappointment following the glorious sunshine we had seen all week, it remained overcast all day presenting a grey light.

This year saw a slight decrease in the turnout, with 18 competitors entered in the nine disciplines, with a total of 69 sets of match cards shot.

We were again fortunate to have the services of John Vining who acted as RO throughout the entire day. He kept us on our toes but not rushed and everything ran extremely well and to schedule.

Scoring was done by Mike & Linda Welsh with some minor input from myself. The Results can be seen here >>>>

Prize certificates will be printed and posted out ASAP.

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

Paul Smith
