Club Building Works @ WRPC
Apr 16 @ 8:30 am – May 25 @ 5:30 pm

It’s confirmed as of 16th of April we’re likely to experience disruption to the power supply, door fob system and ranges during business hours – for us that’s likely to mean 0830-1730 Monday to Friday.

We have agreed with the contractors that during those hours, we will avoid the use of the ranges and that they in turn will leave the ranges in a usable state outside those hours. For those of us who shoot after work for example we should see very minimal disruption. Those of us who shoot during the day, please do bear this in mind and do try to avoid the ranges. If you do intend to shoot during the day – please understand that the building works must come first and you may not be able to get on.

There is a significant amount of electrical work going on that will affect all three of our existing ranges so this applies equally for the duration of the works. It is anticipated that the work will be completed by June – this may slip as we uncover further issues that have been buried for decades! There is a possibility that a range may not be in a usable state after the day – the builders will give us as much notice as possible. We’ll put updates on the club website – have a look before you travel to avoid disappointment:

Fullbore Shoot – 3rd June @ Strensall
Jun 3 @ 8:30 am – 2:00 pm
Fullbore Shoot - 3rd June @ Strensall | England | United Kingdom

Please be there for 0830 for a mandatory safety briefing and to load targets onto the range trolleys – and in a newish twist – the last two bodies turning up on the day get to be Butts supervisors! It’s not an onerous task and the more people with experience of it the better for the club as we will have more people familiar with running ranges.

Please do let me know via chairman@wrpc.co.uk if you can make it, and if you need to borrow a club gun – so I can work out how much ammo to take etc.

We’re going to slot in with the YRA and share the range with them. This means we will have sentries (We will need to provide one) and we will shoot at 300, 500 and 600 yards.

Given the increased distance, there may be a chance that the RCO supervising will have concerns about your safety and that of others with you shooting your rifle at 500 and 600 yards – please ensure you have done your research and understand you rifles capabilities and that of your ammunition in your rifle and that you undertand your sighting system such that you can ensure first round hits on the target at each distance (on the paper is just fine – doesn’t have to be a v-bull!). If it cannot be determined safely on the day then you will not be permitted to shoot at 500 and 600 – of course if you don’t want to shoot those distances then that is fine also!

Look forward to seeing you all there.

Many thanks
