What’s Happening?

Well, Curly is always looking for some around the Range. So if you have some spare time give him a call or be at the Range between 10am and 12 noon Monday to Friday and help with general range up keep.

Range Shoots
We have a Club Range Day every 3rd Sunday of the month. This is a chance to use your hunting rifle or your .22 rabbit gun. In the positions that you would use in the field – prone, sit, kneel and standing. The more familiar you become with your rifle the less chance you have of missing or worse wounding an animal and having it die slowly because you cannot find it.

Juniors Shooting
Wednesday Nights 6:00 to 7:30 PM during School Term Only
Range Fee $2.00 and ammunition $6.00 per box
Please arrive 10 minutes early to get safety gear, targets and other equipment set up and to sign in.

It has been decided to suspend Junior shooting on Wednesday nights over the winter period. The cold nights are resulting in low numbers or no shooters attending. Junior shooting will commence again September 4th, when the weather has warmed up a bit. A reminder notice will be posted on this page and in the newsletter.
