fdpc logoFrome and District Pistol Club is delighted to host the Southern Counties Gallery Rifle Open Championships The venue is the Shepton Mallet Target Sports Centre (SMTSC) – situated within the Anglo Trading Estate in Shepton Mallet. This is a very large Victorian brewery building on the road out of Shepton towards Wells, and the range is in the basement. Post code for your satnav is BA4 5BY. Parking is back up the main road towards the town center where there is a council car park – about 150 yards from the range. To get to the range you enter the site via Gate 2 and about 70 yards further in you will find Entrance No 9 – to access the Range.

Please arrive at the Range at 0800. This will allow time for check in and registration and a safety brief prior to the first detail starting at 0830 prompt.

This is an Aggregate Competition comprising the following 5 matches:

Timed & Precision 1 – 30 Rounds
Multi Target Match – 24 Rounds
Imperial Silhouettes – 30 Rounds
Surrenden – 30 Rounds (18 rounds LBR)
GRANET – 30 Rounds

Please see the Bisley GR&P Handbook for the courses of fire. However, these five matches are pretty straightforward with all shooting taking place from the standing unsupported position. Maximum distance is 25M. Round Count – 144. There will be no sighters.

All 5 matches can be shot in GRCF, GRSB, LBP and LBR and each class will have its own Aggregate prizes. Competitors can enter more than one class but this is likely to be restricted to two classes only because of the time and range space available.

If you intend to share a rifle with someone else PLEASE tell me as it is needed for squadding!
