BidefordTarget Shooting Clubs indoor range facilities are currently under development.
However, at present we do have an indoor air gun range with automatic target changers.
Once funds are in place we plan to build and offer the following indoor range facilities. Receiving financial support will always be very welcome and very much appreciated

Mog Thomson, GB Randle Captain .....
A disappointingly small number of members turned up to help with the working party today, which was such a shame as the weather was perfect and we should have been able to get a lot of jobs done.
However, we managed to trim the hedge, strim all the banks and the sides of the hedge and driveway, almost complete the weeding of the big bank, renew the elastic on the 25x boards, repair target frames and some of the boards and numbers, sort the brass empties ready for sale and a few other jobs.... so thank you to Andy D, Paul & Debbie, Pete, Yvonne, Mog, Linda, Stuart and Neil for all you did, as well as Adie for renewing the target lights at 25x.
There are a number of jobs still outstanding to get done before the winter, so please check the board in the set-up room and see if there is anything you can do to help.
Please also be aware that work on the path between the firing point and the 25x targets is still ongoing, so might be a bit muddy.

Eleven members gave up their Sunday to come to a rather chilly Melbury today, to take the Range Conducting Officer Course, and I think most of them were surprised at the amount of content - it's not just sitting at the back of the range and stopping and starting the details! All did well, and now just have to take a trial detail and also complete the course questionnaire before their qualification is confirmed.
So shortly we shall be able to add the names of Gerald Macarty, Linda Prior-Jolley, Sue Rudman, Debbie Davies, Paul Davies, Sam Bernard, Lorne Hamilton, Stuart Arnold, John Blaney, Naomi Ayre and Adie Pile to the club list of qualified RCOs, bringing our total number to well in excess of 30.
Thank you to you all for stepping up to do this, you will be an asset to the club.
