Dave MeabyIt is with heavy hearts that we have to announce the death of Dave Meaby. Dave, former club secretary for Llandudno and Colwyn Bay Marksmen and the Welsh Gallery Rifle Club, as well as organiser for the Army (ATSC) Gallery Rifle Open competitions, sadly passed away on Saturday August 18th 2018.

Dave was a regular at many of our Gallery Rifle Open meetings at Bisley and often helped out as a range officer. In the last few years he was the face of Welsh Gallery Rifle shooting organising the Welsh GR Open in Haverfordwest – acting as Match Director, squadding administrator and stats processor.

The 2018 Derby Open Meeting

FINAL Results for Derby now available

 

The Derby Open took place from mid day Friday 22nd June to Sunday 24th June

It was a record breaker with 114 competitors and over 1120 events being shot. It was fantastic to see 15 new faces, some completely new to the competition circuit.

I think you will agree that the prize table was excellent with numerous high value prizes to be chosen. This was mainly due to extraordinary support from the eleven sponsors who supported the meeting. It is worth mentioning them by name as they deserve our thanks and having confidence in our sport. Please support them in return.

The Home Countries International Match was won by Wales, congratulations.  England won the Pistol and Revolver matches. Winner team members were presented with Brownells medals.

A link to the scores is here.

The Man v Man LBP event was won by Gary “the Bullet” Bowden with Adrian Kwa second. The Man v Man rifle event was won by Jim Starley with Jake Mossom as runner up.

The Mini McQueen was won by Laura Warwick (using Jake’s rifle!)

The entry fees from these competitions and donations at the BBQ  raised £286 for the Air Ambulance.  Thank you for your generosity.

The Derby Open is a team effort and would not be possible without the 30 or so Range Crew who worked unbelievably hard over the weekend. Special thanks go to Team Smoothy for their help and not forgetting the guys in Stats who produced the final results in record time, and most importantly Pam & Mick on the BBQ.

We hope you all enjoyed everything, and the weather was OK too.

Jim

Fred Davis

Fred Davis The sad news have just been received of the death of Fred Davis one of our long standing Gallery Rifle Range Officers who could most often be seen running ranges on Melville at the Bisley GRAWs and the Trafalgar and IHAM meetings – again at Bisley.

Fred took ill a couple of years ago so we have not seen him on the ranges for a little while. Here he can be seen on the right talking to Rob Tonner from Scotland with fellow Range Officer John Penn, in the background, running Melville Bay B at the 2015 Gallery Rifle National Championships.

Thoughts from all his fellow ROs and shooting colleagues go to his family – RIP Fred.

Fred’s funeral is on the 27th March at 10:15 at Eltham crematorium
