Leagues and Competitions
As we approach the end of the Super League and Individual Trophy, the competition couldn't be closer with just three points seperating the top three teams after 19 rounds of shooting with two more rounds to shoot. In the Individual Trophy a number of divisions are still up for grabs - only two of the seven divisions are mathematically decided going into the final week!
May Braim and Treasurers' Cup cards will be available from Monday 20th March, to be shot by end April. Also currently running are Yorkshire short range (three cards) prone and the inaugural Whitby Benchrest competition - both due by end of March.
Summer league signup sheet is up now in the main range - entries close 2nd April. Yorkshire benchrest, outdoor and lightweight rifle entires have been sent for the summer season.
Interest continues to grow - we now have two benches set up in the main range and two complete benchrest outfits of rifle, rest and scope. Coaching is available on Mondays and the rifles are available to use by members at any other time - see Tony, Kieron or Mike for more info. There are also plans to install benches into the second (quoits) range so members can shoot benchrest 7 days per week.
Comments and Suggestions
We're very interested in your feedback about any aspect of shooting at the club - competitions, membership, facilities, coaching - let us know. There is a comments box in the main range with cards being provided - please drop them into the box and they will be reviewed by the Shooting Committee. You can also contact any of the committee members directly to chat about any issues or feedback.
A New Year!
The Superleague and Individual competitions have resumed and continue to see great individual results and scores across the board. The latest week's results saw Kirkham finally knock Byland off the top of the league and a solid battle is now being fought for the top three spots with very little to seperate the teams.
John Headley's excellent reports for each week's shooting that are featured in the Whitby Gazette are now also available on the website - see the 'Shooting Reports' section
More and more shooters are starting to take up benchrest shooting - available to all, it's a very different challenge to prone shooting but still requires great skill. The club has equipment available for any shooter to use, and a number of coaches can assist on Monday nights or other times by arrangement. The inaugural WDRC benchrest competition is now taking signups by end Feb with cards to be shot by end March - please see form in the main range or the 'upcoming competitions' menu to the left of this page.
