Target Repair Work January 31st

A few hardy souls Des Parr, Bobby Robertson yours truly and Iain Gardiner a joiner friend of mine (not yet a club member!) who has offered to price the manufacture of new frames met up at Jim Bell’s yard yesterday Sunday 31 January to carry out repairs to the target frames. 5 out of the 6 frames required repair to damaged areas, some severely by repeated shoots using Isopon/fibre glass. The attached pics show the result of damage due to incorrect elevation settings rather than just bad shooting.

Also there is a pic of “The cutting of the corex”.

Another day, provisionally 14 February will see the fitting of the corex and cutting and stapling fresh middle sections to the 6 frames.

Regards

John MacDonald
WARC chairman
