Inverness Open - 9th/10th August
Club Shoot 6th April Results
Nineteen members and one visitor attended on a blustery and wet day which turned the 500 yard parking area into a skating rink. Scores were returned from a total of 16 shooters. Some who were expected to attend didn’t show up which may have been the sensible option. Once the targets were put to bed the sun appeared and sunglasses were needed for the drive home.

Perthshire Target Shooting Supplies
Members may be interested that Peter Hunt has taken over the business of Perthshire Target Shooting Supplies and is now able to supply reloading components etc to shooters. Further details are on the PTS website at http://www.ptssuppliesltd.com/. We wish Peter Burbridge a happy second (or is it third) retirement and thank-him for his efforts in supplying Scottish shooters over the last decade or so.
Range up and running 13th March
Sixteen members turned up on a very nice day (once the snow shower had passed) to return the targets from their winter storage to the frames. Once the problem of a mix up between target numbers 3 and 6 was corrected we had five operational targets working to keep us amused with testing sights. Further work is needed to sort target 6.
Thanks to those involved: John Potter, Hugh Inglis, James Bell, Bill Kilmartin, Peter & Dan Burbridge, Simon & Peter Glen, Wendy & Sean Thomas, Jim McCall, Adam MacPherson, John Macdonald, Mark Guest, and Kevin Nangle.
The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) is at present running a Shooting Special on-line NOW.

Scottish Multi-discipline Shooting Championships2014 (.pdf file)
Above is the entry form for the Scottish Multi-Discipline Shooting Championships 2014 to be held at Blair Atholl on 18th May.
As usual I should be very grateful if you could circulate this entry form among other small-bore, clay target and similar clubs of which you are a member. Please also consider cajoling two others to join you in a concurrent team of three and enjoy a day doing something a little different to your normal shooting. There is no need to be proficient in all four disciplines - most entrants have only one or two strong cards. Coaching/Supervision and equipment is available in all disciplines.
I hope to see you there
