Dear Competitors

Thank you all for competing in this our 2nd Christmas Charity Midland Rook and Reindeer competition held to support McMillan Cancer Support.

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 for everyone. 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.

The day started of very grey with a light drizzle whilst setting up the range, the light improved as the day progressed with intermittent periods of drizzle however it did not dampen our spirits and everyone enjoyed a good days shooting. 

This year we attracted 15 entrants shooting 36 matches.

We held two competitions.
1. Any Historic Rim Fire Rifle (any sights except Telescopic) generally .22LR Light Weight Sporting
2. Any Historic Central Fire Rifle (any sights except Telescopic) generally Galley Style Rook or Cadet


A £20 prize was awarded for first place in competition 1.
Phil Carter won this year’s event with a score of 92 and generously donated his prize to the overall charity fund.

For competition 2 entrants provided a prize, all entrants then took turns to select a prize based on their performance, first place taking first choice and working down to last place, so everyone was a winner.

Tea, Coffee and some excellent biscuits from Mrs Boulton where available which went down a treat. 

As this event is run to support Charity all proceeds being donated to McMillan Cancer Support.
Following Phil’s donation we raised a total amount of £175.

I hope everyone had a good day and that we see you all next year:
  • Annual Rook & Rabbit Shoot 6th October 2018
  • Christmas Rook & Reindeer 1st December 2018 
To all those who supported this event I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Best Regards
 Paul Smith
