Dear Members,

Unfortunately, due to the continuing issues related to Covid-19 the HBSA shooting practice organisers have not been able to schedule a Long-Range Match for 2021, but every effort is being made to run the Mid-Range event.
It is a constant battle to keep all of our shooting events viable which means places are limited, entry fees have have been capped at £25 per match or £45 for two, this is in spite of the fact that range hire fees have increased. 
Your support is crucial to this meeting, without you it will cease to exist. 

The Mid-Range Championship Meeting will be held at Bisley on Century ranges on Sunday 26th September.
This match is run by a very small group of volunteers as are all the events organized by the HBSA. 

Paul Smith will be acting as Match organizer.
A Match Range Officer is required, please contact David Carrol to volunteer your services.

This event is intended to encourage the use of Service and Target rifles which fall into one of the following categories Vintage, Classic, Veteran and Post Veteran.
Under competitive conditions but mainly to have an enjoyable day shooting alongside other like minded individuals.
If you have not previously attended this meeting come and have a go, we are always ready to assist and encourage new comers.
If you own a suitable rifle come and have a go, you never know you may well show us all how it should be done.
There are classes for just about every type of Historic Rifle.
All match entries will be via the HBSA online system which is open for entries now >>>>

Further information and match details can be found on the HBSA Website or obtained from Paul Smith
