Target Rigging Day 13th March
Seventeen members turned out to our rigging day, who successfully reinstated the targets and fitted the two new gazebo canopies kindly supplied by the NRC of S. Weather was fair, bright after a misty drive up, but not too cold. Snow line was about half way down the surrounding hills with none on the range. We then had a practice shoot from 400 yards and everything worked almost as expected, except for the monitors only displaying ten shots at a time. The monitor settings will be corrected at the next shoot to display all shots.
We are starting this season with the latest version Signal Distribution Unit and a complete set of new monitor connectors and cables.
Water supply to toilet will be restored at the next shoot.
Many thanks to all who turned out to help and to Richard Scott for his good work over the winter, rebuilding the SDU housing and replacing the monitor connectors.

We had a very good attendance with seventeen members and four guests turning up to shoot then help close down the range for the Winter.
F Class shots, Dan and Jan Linsley visiting Scotland from Queensland in Australia visited the range and one of them managed to record a very respectable score in the miserable conditions.
The weather was very wet all day, and quite cold at around 3ºC first thing in the morning.
Despite the horrible conditions and not everyone shooting, we still managed to send over 400 rounds down the range.
Many thanks are due to all those who turned out and helped with the close down of the range. Many hands make light work, so the work in the butts was completed in very good time.
Thanks to all.
