Limited re opening of Bisley from 23rd/24th of May


Recommended Posts

Whilst my comment that they have to pay for the hand gel was a joke, there is an element of truth in it. Weekend only opening must have actually cost money, as it's the limited lanes available has of course in turn limited revenue. Baby steps, I understand, but don't make the paying members pay for the alterations that aren't their fault. An extra half day on Friday mornings is a step in the right direction.

Had an hour’s session from 08:30  on Stickledown at 900 yards this morning - Excellent organisation and Joe the RCO was extremely helpful. Only two of us until 09:30 when another shooter arrived - a few shooters at 1000 - altogether a brilliant morning

Very pleasent this AM, only 4 of us @ 300yards, from 8:30am  The electronic shotmarker system worked perfectly and was easy to use with the tablet. Very well organised.  The 9.30 slot seemed nearly full as did the 600 yard positions. the only thing that could do with a bit of improvment IMO is the one-way system!

Just back form a morning booking of 5 points on Stickledown (5 points x 4 hours @1000 yards).

No real hassle actually IMHO more straight fwd than normal - hope they keep this setup going forwards (fat chance, we’ll all be back to lineups in the office 🙄)

No to and fro to sort HME, someone is on Winnans/Zero,  book in for actual shooting on range and go shoot, hand radios back to NRA staff on the range - simples!!

Nice day but wind was a bit ‘squirrely’

No, I haven't actually seen it as an option? It was fairly dead yesterday. I was on Century yesterday at 100 to check zero and at my time slot there were only two of us. No one on 300 and about two on 600. I didn't see any others on the list for 100 after my time slot.
