The morning started with a working bee in the clubhouse and some testing of the 700 yards targets.
A final shot was sent down range, for Peter B in front of his family and club members attending todays shoot. Corrie H fired the last shot through Peter’s FStd rifle with a minutes silence to follow.
With 29 shooters for the afternoon, we used all seven electronic targets to make sure we finished at a reasonable time. Three shooters just missed the double possible today in the tricky conditions, we had a bit of everything, a shower to start with, wind mainly from the left turning to down the range at times, and then a couple of gusts that came through at 300m, but never showed up down range. Don’t I love shooting at North Arm.
