The Mild Steel Challenge – Saturday 17th February 2018

On Saturday 17th February Club members shot the IPAS ‘Mild Steel Challenge’ in Gloucester. We had 9 Club Members attend – and form the majority of Squad 2.

First Thursday Shoot of 2018

Some good scores in both events and everyone had good and not so good parts – which is great for learning and development. The IPAS shooting in particular went well, and it was really good to see people improving over the 3 stages. Think this…
