We cater for the needs of over 700 members; hunters, plinkers and competition shooters, men and women, juniors and those for whom youth is a very distant memory. Our range is open on Saturdays from 1pm to 4pm and Sundays from 10am to 4pm except for long weekends and between Christmas and new year.
It caters for Shotgun, Black powder, Rimfire and Centrefire Field Rifle, Military Rifle, Rimfire Metallic Silhouette, Lever Action, Benchrest and Fly out to 500 metres and those who just want to do their own thing. There are four major two day competitions each year and club competition shoots most Sundays and some Saturdays. While we have a small group of target shooters who travel to major competitions the majority who take part in the club competitions do so with their hunting rifles. For this reason, the club competitions are structured so that hunting rifles are competitive, in fact the 2010 club champion achieved his success with a hunting rifle. Visitors and those who just want to test the waters are always welcome.
The branch was founded in 1988 and concrete for the benches was laid in 1991. The original range consisted of a 100 and 200yard Benchrest range with benches for 18 competitors and a 200metre Field Rifle range.
Since 2004 we have built a large clubouse, added a Shotgun range with a field layout, a Rimfire Silhouette range, a new 200metre Field Rifle range, added 3 benches to accommodate 21 competitors and most recently, extended the Benchrest range to 500metres to cater for Fly shoots.
