HBSA Open Long Range Championships - Match Report

posted 25 Aug 2017, 01:15 by Tony Cattermole   [ updated 25 Aug 2017, 01:16 ]
A disappointingly small number of only 11 competitors shot this competition at 900 and 1000 yards on Stickledown range in sunny weather with moderate winds. The wind on the practice day on Saturday 19th was much stronger, with gusts which made shooting very tricky especially later in the afternoon.

The downward trend in the number of Black Powder rifles appearing continues, with only 2 competitors entering this class which used to be so popular.

Congratulations to all our winners. Those who are eligible for HBSA 1st place Prize Certificates may claim one through the HBSA website. (Note: Due to the low number of entries, a second place certificate will only be awarded in Match VIII ' The McBride' ).

RCOs were Mike Townsend and George Tondryk, assisted by Maurice Kanareck at the practice day, with Jim Stevens providing the hard working markers.
