With the winter HRS season nearing it’s close and the CSFTA Winter league about to start the events calendar has been updated to reflect the start times. Please aim to be at the venues early enough to give your rifle a quick test and get signed in.
The cost for the Winter league has gone up to £3 a session. We have 3 teams this year and the club is paying the entry fees.
Good luck again this year teams and lets see if we can win it this year!
There will be a club shoot in the woods next Sunday 9th September.
There will be 12 targets, 24 shots targets from 8 to 45 yards.
You can shoot it to HFT (or HRS), or FT rules.
The short course should allow room for visitors, and “experts” will be on hand to offer advice.
Depending on time taken you can shoot twice.
Setting up will be from 8 o’clock and we plan to start shooting by 10 o’clock.
The normal club facilities will be available for zeroing before the shoot.
Your help with packing up will be welcome.
Unfortunately we lack sponsors so no prizes!
That time of the year is on us again. Shooting season.
So this year there are 2 leagues running HRS run by Bicester Target (http://hrs-rules.co.uk/ ) and the usual CSFTA HFT competition( http://www.csfta.co.uk/ ) There is enough interest in HRS for at least one team, but if you want a second team let me know as soon as possible. The two leagues don’t clash, with HRS finishing on the 2nd Dec and the CSFTA HFT starting on the 9th Dec. (If you want to shoot the CSFTA FT league that starts on the 21st October)
I will be gathering interest in the CSFTA winter league in the coming weeks.
Please see the events page for dates and locations for both leagues
And that’s the end of the winter league for another year. Many thanks to all the team members who came and shot this year as well as everyone who came to help out setting up the courses.
The results are now in the competitions page and a big congratulations goes out to Peter who came first in the individual standings on the second division. and the Newbury 1 team who came second in the team standings. Great work all.
The FT winter league round due 18th/ is postponed due to the conditions.
Many thanks to the members who helped set up. It was a great course with a tricky wind.

The next HFT shoot will be hosted by us on the 11th March. We will need help setting up on the 10th and some none shooting help on the day please. Let me know if you can help out.
Winter league HFT at Wendover.
A good turn out for today and although the Wendover wind wasn’t as bad as it usually is, some small targets and a different layout from normal lead to a tricky course.
It’s the second round of the winter league HFT tomorrow at Bisley.
We are a little short on shooters for this one, so if you want to come along let me know.
The club AGM is coming up on the 16th February. See the events section for details.
It’s your club so come and support it.
I hope everyone is ready for a cold shoot tomorrow at wendover. Remember all shoots will start at 9am so please get there in time to sign in and have a cup or tea!
