Sadly we lost another club shooter Jim Munro, we used to love watching Jim shuffle about the range and I remember hoping that I can still shoot at that age.
Congratulations to Steve Sori for an outstanding effort today in beating the record small group he set almost 30 years ago in 1988! Steve shot a remarkable 10 shoot group in the experimental class in 0.154″ and went on to take the day with a record aggregate of .2240.
Our range fees are $10 per visit so if you think you will shoot here more than 20 times next financial year it pays to take the annual pass option it’s $200 unlimited visits and you don’t have to remember to take $10 each time. See your range officer next time at the range to sign up.
The range will be closed from tomorrow and re-open Monday the 16th of July as we once again host the NSW Centerfire Championships, anyone wishing to volunteer as target crew would be most welcome.
We have just received word that Arthur Hickson late from Macksville passed away last Monday aged 88 years.
Arthur and late wife Rita were keen Coffs Harbour SSAA club members and were center-fire benchrest shooters in the 1980’s and early 1990’s.
Arthur was a really great club worker and was a self taught gunsmith of some note who built several center-fire actions from scratch which performed marvelously well.
Arthurs funeral will be held next Friday 30th of June at 10am in the Church of England Macksville.
Older club members will remember Arthur as an exceptional good bloke and an amazingly clever man, our condolances go to his family.

Thanks to Grimmo Productions and the Coffs Camping and 4wd expo we were once again able to bring the mobile range up from Sydney, plenty of rain slowed numbers on Saturday but the Sunday morning sunshine brought lots of muddy boots into the range for a bit of fun over the 10m standard air rifle range and some very good 5 shot groups followed.
Kerry will be closed from the 9th of July to the 22nd of July 2017.
