Dear Competitors

A very big thank you for taking part in our 3rd Christmas Rook and Reindeer shoot in aid of charity.
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 all.
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 and supported a very worthy cause.

This year we attracted 12 entrants shooting in two categories, one for early Rim Rife rifles and the other for Central Fire (Rook) rifle. See the results here >>>

The same targets where used for both matches, a rather splendid Rook complete with Top Hat was the 25m target and a Reindeer was used at 50m
Both targets are a challenge with open sights and reduced Winter light but evert one stepped up to task in hand.

Match 1 was won by Phil Carter with a splendid score of 62, the prize for which was £20, Phil once more very generously donated his winnings back to the charity fund.

Match 2 was a bring a prize shoot, all entrants had a prize of their choice from the selection available with the top score having first choice, with all competitors going home with a prize. Prizes included a Gun slip, Christmas, Biscuits and various bottles.

During the morning Tea Coffee and some excellent biscuits were provided my some of the Stourport members.
Special thanks to Mrs Boulton who made the biscuits.

As a result of the entrance fees, donated prize money etc.

A grand total of £162 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.

A would like to wish all those who took part

A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

And thank you all for your continued support.

I hope everyone had a good day and that we see you all next year for the annual Rook & Rabbit Shoot.
