Results for Saturday 15th & Sunday 16 February
Saturday saw three competitors turn up for this months blackpowder shoot. We had a clear day with a variable wind. All shooters were a bit rusty after a 3 month break but quickly got into the swing of it. Three targets were shot, a single fox head at 25m, 5 small fox heads at 25m and the precision target at 50m. 10 shots at each for a possible total of 300. The placings were, Frank Cohn first on 227, David Wheeler a close second on 221 and Eddie Witt third on 153.
Next weeks shoot is Rimfire 50y score.

8 competitors took part in this months military competition. The conditions were good, overcast and a light breeze. Most competitors shot well at 50 and 100 yards but the 200 yards sorted them out. Despite turning up just before 10:00 and having to catch up, Greg Blake placed first with a score of 190.5 with perfect scores at 50 and 100 yards. Mick Reed came in second with 184, pretty good considering he has not competed for more than a year.
