In 25 metre rimfire, Laurie Smith posted a ripping 247/250, just pipping Neville Blanch on a ripping 245 and chased hard by Doug Clarke and Karen Brown on fine scores of 238 and 231.

Conditions permitting, next shoot will be on Sunday October 17, with fullbore at 300 metres from 8.30am and 50 metre rimfire from 11am.

Visitors are welcome on shoot days, with due care, and enquiries regarding club activities and firearms licensing may be made to Steve Pennicuik on 0427059717.

The next Firearms Licensing Course is planned for Saturday November 13 - with prior bookings essential. It is hoped that no change to COVID conditions will interfere with these plans.
