Saturday 15th September 2018 – Epperstone Range

1.   8.30-8.45 am arrival to enable a 9.00 am start.  Two car parks will be available.  Bottom  car park at the entrance to be signposted that it is for those leaving at 12.00.  The top car park to be signposted for use by competitors staying for the complete day (5.00 pm).  Anyone arriving after 9am will be required to use the bottom car park.  All competitors are requested to swiftly make their way with equipment to the 100m range hut.  Equipment to be stored in the hut until needed.  There will be some Military Rifles available for use and ammunition will be available to purchase and will be drawn from the Sat RCO for use in the competition – empty cases to be returned.

2.   Safety talk at the hut together with details for the days competitions.  Movement of competitors between ranges will be via the rear of the 100m range along the road to the 25m range with the wicket gate at the butts end of the range an exclusion zone secured with red and white exclusion tape.  Permission to move and enter ranges will be via radio contact with the 100m RCO in overall charge and the 25m range RCO

3.   Competitors will enter their names on a range detail sheet which will show competition being shot, shooting lane allocated and approximate time in order to enable a smooth progression of competitors at both ranges.  They will be handed scorecards for the military and sporting disciplines and these should be signed immediately upon receipt.    Probationary members will require one-to-one supervision as appropriate with the spare RCO or a competent person – this to be arranged by the RCO in control of the 100m range.

 4.   The Norman Hoare Military competition and the Albert Goodman sporting competition will be held on the 100m range.  The John White competition and the fun shoot will be held on the 25m range.  Both Ranges will be run simultaneously in order to get continuity between the two ranges the Military and Sporting will alternate with each other to produce a flow of competitors to the 25 m range.

 5.   The RCO in control of the 100m will be wearing a reflective jacket and will be in contact with the 25m range by radio to ensure a smooth progression of competitors between ranges.  He will remain at the rear of the range for safety and organisation of the competition.

6.   Two alternating RCO’s with two safety officers drawn from the membership and these will be wearing reflective jackets for easy visual identification and  will move forward with the competitors on the 100m range.  They will also be responsible for ensuring clearing of firearms after each detail and ensuring breach flags are in place and the firearm is in a vertical position prior to moving forward to the next firing point.  Brass to be picked up on the way back to ensure continuity of the competition.

7.   There will be two RCO’s wearing reflective jackets who will run the two competitions on the 25m range.  These two competitions will run simultaneously with each other.

8.   If there is sufficient time competitors may re-enter but it will be understood that only the first card will be scored.

9.   There will be a break at approximately 12 noon for lunch at the completion of the 100m permissible time.   Bacon or Sausage cobs will be available to purchase as will tea, coffee and squash.  Please could you advise me if you are attending to ensure that sufficient provisions will be purchased for the day.  Please bring a seat with you.  During this time the 100m range will be closed and cleared.

10. After the main competitions have been completed the winners will be presented with their trophies.  The 25m range will be available for general shooting of gallery and rimfire.
