Season Wind-up and AGM 2012

Posted on 13 October, 2012 under News

The weather forecast predicted a cloudy but mainly dry day with a few isolated showers. So it turned out, more or less. In addition there was a wind that proved surprisingly tricky at times. Ruefully, it can be told that all the isolated showers seemed to be rolled up into ...read more →

Long Range Shoot

Posted on 18 August, 2012 under News

Despite some apprehension that there might not be enough support for this shoot, seven OCs turned up on the hottest day of the year so far. With the not entirely comfortable temperature we enjoyed a gentle to medium wind that caught some of us out from time to time. Tim ...read more →

Schools Veterans

Posted on 12 July, 2012 under News

As in 2011, we were able to enter only one team for this event. Unfortunately, after the promise shown at our shoot of 23rd June, we did not produce as good a result as hoped. Perhaps spirits were depressed by the fact that it rained the whole time! For the ...read more →

Cranleigh Tankard and Match v. The School

Posted on 23 June, 2012 under News

We had six OCs and five members of the School shooting squad for this event – perhaps a little disappointing for the main opportunity for the School to meet us. Early on in the afternoon we had a little rain but otherwise it was fine with some wind that gave ...read more →

All Day Match

Posted on 9 June, 2012 under News

This match is shot over four ranges, 300, 600, 900 & 1000 yards and it is usual to start at 300 yards and move backwards. In order to circumvent restrictions in target availability, however, it was necessary to do the long range shoots in the morning and the shorts in ...read more →

Long Range “Q” Match

Posted on 28 April, 2012 under News

As forecast, it was a wet afternoon that greeted the seven OCs who were able to make themselves available for this match. Nevertheless, we succeeded in getting everyone through at both ranges with one-to-one coaching, helped by the use of spare target space made available by other teams with fewer ...read more →

Short Range “Q” Match

Posted on 14 April, 2012 under News

We had a very good turnout, ten shooters, for this event on a fine, if chilly, afternoon. As at least one school was only able to raise four it was agreed that the match would be decided on the basis of teams of four, with three nominated before the start. ...read more →

Short Range Practice

Posted on 31 March, 2012 under News

For this shoot the conditions were dry but quite chilly, especially at 600 yards where there was more exposure to the wind. Seven of us turned up; Rob Welford scored 97.8, Rob Pile scored 95.8 and the rest of us were, frankly, also-rans. We must rise to the challenge on ...read more →

Long Range Practice

Posted on 17 March, 2012 under News

We expected six shooters for this morning shoot, the first of the season. In the end, for reasons ranging from viral attack through family crisis to personal injury, only two of us completed shoots at both ranges and one had to retire at the half-way point. The two “stayers” acquited ...read more →
