Dinner Invitation and Autumn News

It's that time of year again and winter leagues are looming; but there's still time to get together, eat, drink and celebrate 2012 Surrey style at the County dinner on 24 November 2012. For tickets, please contact Paddy Hicks using this web form, with your name and telephone number, number of tickets, club name and delivery address.

Please download and display at your club this invitation poster.

Everyone's invited; trophy winners, clubs getting together and anyone who wants to meet up with shooting friends or make new ones. The dinner will be at the Army club at Bisley and tickets are £24 per head for a 3 course meal, including a mushroom starter and Beef Wellington, a sweet trolley and coffee. The festivities start at 7 p.m. with dinner at 7.45 p.m.


The County has an active website that includes news and coaching updates, information, scores, entry forms and a calendar. Most of the site is open access, but anyone who has registered for access to the password protected area of the site will receive email news updates, as well as gaining access to all the County scores. If you've received this email, you're probably already registered, but please encourage your fellow club members to register by downloading and displaying this poster or by forwarding this email to them. It's easy to register, by going to the enquiry page and applying, by inserting name, email address and club name etc. Andy, our webmaster, will create an account and send details of how to log in and create a password.

We would also be grateful for contributions from anyone who has any club or other shooting news or knowhow to share, including club photos and information, competition news, diary items or interesting shooting related links.


We have two competitions coming up, so please get your entries in or put up a copy of the forms in your club for others to see:

Surrey LSR Open - Carshalton Rifle Club, Saturday 20th October 2012

Air and Pistol Open - Lord Roberts Centre, 24-25th November 2012

Mike Babb also returned to the County for coaching at Bletchingley recently. There isn't a new article on this, but feedback so far received from shooters who have been through the coaching indicates that scores are improving and there are a number of people who have now coached with Mike more than once. If you or anyone you know might like to add to their knowledge about their shooting through coaching, please get in touch and let us know, as the County can organise coaching and other training, but it depends on demand and we need to hear from you. If you have ideas or requests, please let us know.

In the meantime, watch this space, as 2013 is the County Association's centenary year... and if anyone has any old photos or other memorabilia, please get in touch.

That's all for now but hopefully we'll see you at one or other of the upcoming events.

Good shooting
