The Easter Shoot is a great opportunity for indoor shooters to experience something different or just to watch some of the country's top marksmen in action.
This year will see Finals shot on the new electronic target systems being installed at the Sinclair Range, which makes us one of only a handful of ranges in the country with this level of facility. Although a scratch competition, Easter is not only about top shooters. There are four ability classes - X (for the highly qualified shooter), then A, B and C classes. On top of this there are age categories: Seniors (60+), Masters (50+) and Juniors (under 21). So every category of ability is catered for and no one should feel they will be out of their depth. Equally, there will be no shortage of advice for first-timers. All the details - events, times, entry fees, averages, can be obtained from Ina Glover on email@example.com If you decide not to compete, why not come down on Easter Saturday and Sunday to observe World and British Champions competing at the highest level alongside local and visiting club shooters enjoying an excellent weekend of shooting
