Just a short update to cover a few topics.
Firstly, from a shooting point of view we are still running the booking system for all disciplines. Although the evenings are still set for individual disciplines, you can book in and shoot whatever you like during the daytime as long as there are 2 shooting or on the premises for insurance purposes.
There are plenty of competitions you can enter ….contact me, Lindsay or the relevant captain to find out more if you want more competitions.
The new 10m range is available every day and every evening now and seems to be working well.
We have also constructed a 6yd air range for practice /beginners.
With regards to beginners, we are holding induction evenings on this coming Tuesday 15th and Thursday 17th June at 7:30pm . All help from members would be very welcome. Just let Lindsay know that you can be available and come along to help inform prospective members what we are all about.
With regards to the new building, we need help constructing a path around the building and also some blockwork at the emergency exits. George has obtained old railway sleepers for us, so we can also start rebuilding the 50m butts if we have enough members helping. Otherwise it will be done, but may not be until the end of the summer and will cost the club more. If you feel you can give time and effort to this task then please contact me.
We have been hoping to have our opening ceremony on Sat July 3rd at 2:30pm, all members and families/friends will be welcome. We have Lord Tom Clifford of Chudleigh to perform the opening ceremony as he is also president of the Devon County Smallbore Rifle Association. Refreshments etc will be available throughout the afternoon. However, please watch out for further notification in case we will have to move the date on if restrictions are not lifted in time. We should know within the next few days.
There is an early committee meeting this month which will be on Wednesday 16th June. If you have anything you would like discussed at the meeting please let Lindsay know to include on the agenda.
I will be in contact again very soon to report the results of that meeting and hopefully confirm the range opening date.
All best wishes
