The Club is in URGENT need of your ASSISTANCE . . . .
HELP with the planned Range Refurbishment Projects will be required from Club Members.
Your assistance with this work is ESSENTIAL if the planned projects are to be completed .
Any club member who could contribute some of their time to these projects, please contact a member of the Management Committee as soon as possible.
Should no help be forthcoming, the Management Committee will have to look to outside sources to complete the work. This of course, will attract some SIGNIFICANT costs. Any such costs which will have to be recouped with increased subscription fees.
Please Note! Practical Shooting (MiniRifle/PSG) have currently been suspended. New guidelines have been released detailing what current firearms are permissible.
The statements from the NSRA are now clear: shotgun and calibres larger than .22 are not allowed. The only exception being BP, at 10 metres.
More details will be made available soon.
You're never too young to learn to shoot.
Thurnscoe Rifle Club encourage junior members who, under the supervision of parents and instructors, learn the safety disciplines involved with firearms. Teach them properly in a safe, controlled environment rather than letting them loose with an air rifle as a teenager with no training or guidance.
