The Surrey small-bore 50m Centenary Rifle and Pistol Open meeting returned to Bisley with a bang on Sunday 12 July 2015, following a year off after its launch in the Association’s 2013 centenary year.

The hoped for regular fixture – and England designated qualification shoot – was well supported by Surrey shooters and sold out for the men’s 60 shot prone rifle match. It also featured a good field for the women’s 60 shot prone rifle. There were mens and womens 3P rifle and 60 shot 50m Free Pistol matches in the morning and the 3P match featured Glasgow 2015 Commonwealth Games gold medalist Dan Rivers.

In keeping with the spirit of the event, there were concurrent competitions for the best junior and A, B & C classes, plus the confined Surrey Championship to choose the Surrey representative at the Champion of Champions match, to be held on Sunday 23 August 2015 on the same range.

Results are here:

The category winners were each presented with a Surrey gold medal:

Thanks to all who made it and all those who made it possible, including organisers Lina Jones and David Goodfellow, range officers Jon and Alison Leech, classification officer Janet Jones and Joy Millar. We hope this will be a regular fixture in the Association’s calendar and the date and format for next year’s event will be published as soon as possible.

The prone rifle events were scored using the ISSF international decimal scoring method and all competitors were given a detailed print out of the their shoot, containing group diagrams and integer and decimal scores using the Lord Roberts Centre’s Match Manager system. Thanks to Kaz Morris for all her support in training me up for this day in the control cupboard and to Richard Collins for giving up his time to provide help and guidance.

Hopefully we’ll see you at next year’s event if not before.
