The 2021 CRC Spring Action Weekend @ CHELMSFORD (1944) RIFLE CLUB
Mar 6 – Mar 7 all-day

The 2021 Chelmsford Spring Action Weekend

The 2021 Chelmsford Spring Action Weekend – 7th – 8th March

Chelmsford Rifle Club is hosting two weekends of action shooting in 2021.  A classified “warm up” to the full competition season in March and a final close to the season in November.  Chelmsford has 5 lanes of 25M indoor shooting, decent facilities, and a comfortable lounge to keep out of the cold if we have inclement weather, there’s plenty of parking and lunch will be included for all.

Each weekend, we’ll be shooting from 10am through to 4pm but we’re flexible on hours and can extend if required to accommodate more shooters.  On the back of the success of the last Winter Competition, we’ll be running the same comps again – TP1, TP3, 1020, MT, WA48, again all classified (where appropriate) and scored properly (with prize table).  If there’s time, we will also be running a pool shoot with unlimited entries (on the day) and cash prize.

The team look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
