This list has been compiled to provide as much information as possible regarding Club Fixtures to 30th September 2020. Considering that Saturdays are predominantly the Clubs main shoot days at the Club Range, Fixture List dates show special events only, i.e. Competitions and MoD range bookings. The Club Range will be operational at least every Saturday, most Wednesday's and some Sunday mornings. Members wishing to shoot at the Club Range on other weekdays should make contact with other Members via the ‘Members Directory’ to ensure that, for safety reasons, there will be at least two persons present, one must be a Full Member and the other over sixteen years of age.
Please Note 1: Andrew G. (farm) must be notified at by email, copied to Committee members, at least by mid-day (Noon) the day you intend to use the Club Range on a normal weekday, except Wednesday's and excluding National Holidays, i.e. Bank Holidays. Please Note:- Except Saturday's, the first Red Gate alongside the main road, must at all times, be kept locked closed.
Please Note 2: Use of MoD Ranges. – * Bookings are subject to sufficient demand from Members, R.C.O.'s and range availability. If there is insufficient support for the booking, the fixture will be cancelled. In addition, the MoD may cancel a booking at very short notice. You are advised to telephone the Secretary the day before attending to confirm the booking is still on. If you have confirmed your attendance to either an MoD or Bisley booking and have to drop out, you may be liable for your 'contribution' to range fees calculated on the day. Our previous 'arrangement' for the cost of using MoD ranges has been revised, if we are the only 'user' on the MoD range complex we will incur additional costs, extra costs will also apply where Ranges have been equipped with SARTS targetry. We now incur full costs for the Range Operatives (formally Range Wardens) for the duration of the booking (Approximately £325/day plus an additional charge of around £100 for the use of four SARTS targets used) The use of tracer ammunition will be subject to weather conditions on the day, except Thetford where tracer is not permitted. Sigma Range - only firearms and ammunition compliant with the 'Firearms Used' notice displayed can be used; Shotguns are not to be used on the Sigma Range; except for testing purposes only and in the presence of a Committee Member.
Club Range Safety Certificate for all firearms to be used: - There are restrictions on Muzzle Energy (Me) up to 1,496 ft/lbs and Muzzle Velocity (Mv) up to 2,150 ft/sec.
Please Note 3: All users of MoD ranges, including Bisley - must be in possession of a valid 'Shooter Certificate Card' for specific types of firearms used and must be produced as and when required - no certificate - no shoot...! The MoD impose a maximum Muzzle Energy restriction of 4,500 Joules on MoD Ranges at STANTA; and a minimum age limit for any attendees of 16 years of age.
