Members compete at Bisley

Malcolm Brain and Andy Meyers attended the National Meeting organised by the NSRA at Bisley from 10th – 18th August 2013 with considerable success for both shooters. Malcolm won the NSRA Eley Class A final by a clear 5 points and achieved joint top score in the X Class weekend aggregate (1,174/1,200) but unfortunately was placed second on count back!

Thwaites comes to East Grinstead

For the first time in it's history the Eastbourne League Thwaites Competition was hosted by East Grinstead TSC. It's always good to have home advantage!  The weather was reasonable although the morning saw variable light and wind making for some interesting shooting. Andy Meyers (East Grinstead TSC) shot a magnificent match by only dropping 5 points during the 60 shot match giving a score of 595. Various other shooters tried to better Andy's score but fell by the wayside.
