NLRC 2019 Calendar


Wappenshaw and Christmas lunch
All members and their guests are invited to the NLRC’s annual Wappenshaw and Christmas lunch, which will be
held on Saturday 7

th December. This is our traditional end-of-season fun shoot, open to all members, families,

and guests.
A memorial will be held on Saturday evening, as a celebration of the life of Nick Jeffs. This will include the
scattering of his ashes on Stickledown by rocket at nightfall, followed by a light meal, games, and
reminiscences. All friends and acquaintances of Nick will be most welcome.
Shooting
We will be operating two fun shoots this year:
The traditional 600 yards ‘any rifle’ shoot.
- Entry will be £12 per shooter, firing 2+10 at 600 yards.
- Please state when entering whether you would prefer a target with an NRA face, or an F-class face
(both will be scored out of 50).
- You may use any rifle.
- Please bring ammunition as appropriate. 308”/7.62 will be available for purchase on the range at a
cost of 99p/round.
- Members should ensure they bring a valid Shooters Certification Card for the rifle they intend to use.
- Guests must be declared as such on the entry form; they must shoot under the supervision of their
member host. Guests must also sign a Guest Declaration form on arrival.
- Youth members aged 14+ are encouraged to enter this competition and have a go!
- Club rifles with a scope and a bipod are available for loan – please state on the form if you would like
to borrow one.
- There will be two competitions, one for adults and one for <18s. Both will be ‘Bring a prize, win a
prize’: please bring a prize, value under £10, and gift-wrapped to be placed beneath the tree. You will
have a choice of gift, loosely based on the results of the shoot.
- In addition there will be a prize for the top guest.
Gallery Rifle (GR) and Muzzle Loaded Pistol (MLP) 25m shoot on Winans A Range.
- Entry will be £18 per shooter.

they intend to use. Some supervision will be available for members who do not have the relevant
discipline on their SCC.

member host. Guests must also sign a Guest Declaration form on arrival.
- Young people (age 8 or over) are welcome to take part. Those under 14 will need to be agreed with
the NRA and their sponsors are requested to provide details at least a week in advance to avoid
disappointment.

- Shooters may fire standing or sitting. Tables will be available and shooters adopting a sitting position
may use the table for support. Under 14s may only shoot sitting and supported.
