HBSA Midland Rook & Rabbit Rifle Competition: Stourport on Severn, 7th October 2017

Dear Competitors
Thank you for competing in this our 12th Annual Midland Rook and Rabbit competition.
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 with a separate range for the muzzle loading match.
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 all those who attended for their continued support.

We were once more fortunate with the weather, after a light drizzle whilst setting up the range it cleared to be a warm day with some light cloud at times.  
This year we attracted 18 entrants shooting 62 matches an increase from last year, unfortunately 2 entrants had to withdraw at the last minute due to circumstances beyond their control; additionally some 3 regulars could not attend due to ill health or holidays.  
So all in all the meeting continues to be is very well supported.

John Vining our regular RO was able to attend after last year’s illness and ran the range all day in a very smooth and professional manner.
Scoring was done carried out by Mike ably assisted by Linda with some very minor input from myself.
Tea Coffee and some excellent biscuits from Mrs Boulton went down a treat. 

Many thanks to all those who helped during the day.

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

We plan to hold a Rook & Reindeer shoot on in December 2017 (probably 9th) with all proceeds going to the McMillan Fund.
Confirmed date to follow and details to follow but make a note in your diary.

Best Regards 
Paul Smith
