The Hawkes Bay shoot will not be held at Easter because it is being used for a training weekend, we are holding it the day after the Spring Meeting. It is possible that this will continue as the date for the competition.  You will note that we are incorporating a coached team’s match into the weekend on the Saturday afternoon at 900 yards.  TR shooters will shoot for what was the most prestigious team shooting trophy outside the nationals, the Collins Shield.
Both these days will be shot on manually marked targets.  If you currently shoot on electronic targets and plan to compete at the national champs, then you should consider shooting the weekend.

WRA Spring Meeting – 10 shots at 300 / 600 and 900 yards. Entry is $45 for A, B, C, FTR and F Open and $30 for Tyros.  Shooting starts at 9am.  We will need Wellington members to get the markers to the butts and the targets out for the day.  Shooters squad themselves, get there early if you need to be squadded with your coach or if you are sharing rifles.  Entries will be taken by Kevin Win down on the range.  This will be followed by a coached teams match at 900yds.
