HBSA Long Range Midland Rook & Rabbit Rifle Competition

Stourport on Severn, Saturday 19th June 2024

Dear Competitors

Thank you all for competing in this Long Range Rook and Rabbit competition.

As always, I would very much like to thank the Committee and Members of Stourport on Severn Rifle Club for allowing us the use of their range.

The weather looked a bit uncertain to start with but turned out being hot and humid.

We attracted 13 entrants, 3 of which were new to this event and a very welcome sight. Shooting 38 matches, a total 114 cards.

At least 3 others could not attend due to holidays, so Rook & Rabbit continues to be popular and attracts new members.

Fortunately the range floor had dried out allowing us to shoot the 100m stage, although we did have to take a roundabout route when changing the targets.

The usual supply of cake, tea and coffee was provided by Chris Gray & Paul Smith.

Many thanks to all those who attended and helped out during the day.
Special thanks to Ross Lewis who acted as Range Officer ably assisted by Chris Gray.
Plus the various individuals who changed the targets for some of our less able members.

During the day we had a visit from the Secretary and Chief Range Officer from Stourport On Severn Club. I believe they were impressed by the way we conducted ourselves.

Overall we did an extremely good job supporting our cause and ensuring that we can continue to use the Range at Stourport.

I hope everyone had a good day and that we see you all again.

Best Regards
Paul Smith
