The majority of the High Performance Rifle Squad made the trip to the Isle of Man for the annual Easter Festival taking place over 14 – 16 April 2017. Registered as a British Shooting selection event for both 10m and 50m Rifle, the Air Rifle events were conducted on electronic targets for the first time with the assistance of STS, with Gavin Walker driving a van-load of our Megalink units over and running the range for the two days of the Air Rifle and Air Pistol events.
West Atholl Rifle Club assisted by Blair Atholl Gun Club and Blair Atholl Small-bore Rifle Club will again be hosting the Scottish Multi-discipline Shooting Championships at the Jubilee Range, Blair Atholl on 14th May, 2017.
Competitors will be ranked in each event and the rankings added together to determine the overall winner and team winners. The event will not be squadded so competitors may choose when to shoot each event between 9.30 and 3.30. Depending on entries some events may close earlier.
The day will be an official “guest day” for both West Atholl Rifle Club and Blair Atholl Small-bore Rifle Clubs which will allow competitors without their own rifles to use club rifles under one to one supervision.
This weekend saw the Scottish Target Shooting 10m Air Pistol and Rifle Championships at the University of Strathclyde. It was STS’s inaugural combined event and attracted a good range of competitors coming from as far away as the Isle of Wight, all of whom deemed it to be a success.
Scottish Target Shooting encourages all club and individual members to respond to the Home Office consultation closing at 5.30pm on 9 March 2017. To help, a copy of the STS response and template responses have been provided.
