Our range template falls onto State Forest from Monday the 15th of August 2016 Forestry will be working in parts of this area unfortunately this mean we are restricted to rimfire .22LR shooting only on weekdays until further notice, works are expected to continue probably until Christmas.
No Centerfire shooting weekdays.
Those seeking accommodation in Coffs Harbour for this shoot should book early, the shoot coincides with the National Touch Football championships and many establishments are booked out already.
With winds gusting in excess of 100 kilometres an hour (well thats what it felt like) leaves were flying everywhere towels and ammunition was blown from benches, so Steve decided best to bring out the tissues, mounting them front and centre on the wailing wall.
Jacko opened nicely with a .208 which turned out to be the smallest group of the day. Despite conditions it turned out to be a very tight race for the top 3.

A fantastic video featuring the wonderful Joy Harrison who is a regular competitor at Coffs SSAA, well done Joy and good luck.
Wayne shot 100 heavy today .1822 aggregate with a small group screamer of .092
That by any standard is exemplary, well done mate.
Just a heads up to all SSAA Coffs Harbour club members we have a busy 3 months ahead, August sees the Bananacoast Centerfire Championship 18th-22nd August, September we have the National Hunter 15th to the 20th of September and then the Super Shoot 11th October to the 16th of October so check the calendar before you drive out to shoot and make sure the range is open for general shooting.
An early start with some driving from Yamba this morning to help Allie celebrate her birthday Dairyville style many trying shooting for the first time.

Allie looking exited here after easily outclassing all of the opposition. ;0)
Just a heads UP for our Centerfire shooters, forestry will be back in our template in 3-4 weeks time. Logging is expected to take at least 6 weeks so the range will be closed for centerfire shooting weekdays during this period. Firm closure dates will be posted here when they become available, in the meantime you have about 3 weeks to get out and have a crack.
Thanks to Neil and his beautiful Swindlehurst .22 Target rifle Renee pictured here and in the video was lucky enough to try shooting with some of the best gear around and under the watchful eye of Ray our “Try Shooting” aficionado I reckon she had a pretty good time, what do you think?

Representatives from the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party will be at the Coffs Harbour Deep sea fishing club this Saturday 18th at 3pm, it would be great if people could come show their support at the meet and greet and also voice any concerns they have.
