July/August Shooting

posted 2 Jul 2019, 01:01 by Tony Cattermole
The following events are planned over the next 2 months.

The shoot on 14th July has been cancelled.  Many of our members are already committed to other events either as range officers or competitors making this date impractical.

The 14th was to have been a celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Imperial. We have decided to make the 4 types competition the anniversary shoot.

The Wednesday rifle practice is on 17th July this is at 100 yards on Short Siberia, this will enable rifles to be zeroed and skills honed for the 4 types.

The Imperial 4 Types is on 28th July, run by Mike Townsend. Flyer attached

The Long Range competition is on the 18th August shooting at 900 in the morning and 1000 yards in the afternoon. We have 4 targets booked for both.

Saturday the 17th is the practice day we have one lane booked morning and afternoon both starting at 900 falling back to 1000yards.

Mike Townsend is running the practice day, Paul Smith is the match organiser.

May I have a volunteer to split the RO duties in the afternoon please..

Finally the August rifle practice is on 21st on century at 200 yards. Please note if you turn up at the advertised range and do not see anyone the NRA sometimes switch us between short Siberia and Century at short (no) notice.

The electronic booking system is now live both on the HBSA website for the 4 types competition and the long range.
