This event is normally held twice a year (the current Club Shooting Programme should be consulted for precise timing), and is aimed at providing a safe and enjoyable introduction to shooting for young persons aged 18 and under. The event is open to Members’ children, other relatives and their friends. All shooters must be accompanied by a Member, and Members are expected to assist with supervision and bring their own rifles and ammunition for their charges to use. This event is completely free to Members’ children and guests.
Programme and Order of Shooting:
The event comprises two static target competitions:
On Time Limit range, concentric ring targets at 25 metres to be shot with air rifles. This competition is primarily for under 12’s (i.e. below the minimum age for Junior Membership) but, subject to range availability, shooters aged 12 and over may enter.
On the Mid Boar range, static concentric ring targets at 50 metres to be shot with sound moderated .22LR rifles. This competition is limited to shooters aged 12 and over.
In addition to the above, a range of fun targets will be set up on Time Limit range for all to shoot with air rifles. Re-entries are permitted subject to range availability.
Awards and Trophies:
Trophies (gold, silver and bronze) are usually awarded for the air rifle and .22LR competitions. Depending on the size and composition of the entry, either or both competitions may be split into two age groups and/or by gender and additional sets of trophies awarded.
