The tail end of hurricane Katia made conditions interesting at the Surrey small-bore prone rifle open meeting at the Worplesdon range on September 10 and 11, but it didnt dampen the competition, with Austin Wilshire (Croydon RC) escaping the following Bookham RC pack of 3 by a single point to win the all-comers and confined county championships with an impressive 777 from 800.

Bookham RC made amends with a clean sweep of the team honours in the club pairs, 50 and 100 yard and aggregate, while Lina Jones (Bookham RC) retained the Ladies championship, Stephanie Postlethwaite (Addiscombe RC) won the 100 yard any sights, Geoff Doe (Worplesdon & District TSC) took the Veterans, Ms A Peace (Surbiton Postal) the Minors, J Cooper (Surbiton) the Juniors and Junior Aggregate and Tim Hammond (Bookham) the Secretaries & Treasurers. Paula Luke (Surbiton), P Francis (Carshalton) and S Caulfield (Borough of Wandsworth RC) won the class B, C and D aggregates respectively. All the results can be found here, with prizes being presented at the county dinner at Bisley on 27 November 2011; all welcome.

The weekend weather was mixed, with blustery wind building throughout, flat light for parts of Saturday and tricky light conditions on Sunday morning for some. Meeting Organiser Mike Mercer (32nd/61st Surrey Home Guard) put in an invaluable all weekend double shift as chief range officer, while stalwart County Vice-President Colin Powell handled bookings and squadding notices before the event and acted as stats officer and Les Wearn was on duty as scorer throughout the weekend. Thanks Mike, Colin, Les and Steve Bradbury and team at Worplesdon & District Target Shooting Club.


Surrey Prone Open

All shooters and their partners, including open entrants and winners are invited to the Surrey County dinner and prize giving at the Army Target Rifle Club at Bisley on Saturday 27 November 2011. Ticket booking details are to be announced shortly.

The total open entry was up to 45 this year, with an encouraging increase in the junior entry, but with fewer than hoped for overall and in club team entries. The organizers are keen to hear from all Surrey shooters about any changes to the event that would encourage a larger entry and from volunteers who would like to help on 8 & 9 September 2012.
