The first Branch Range Day of the year was held at the BSRC, Bisley on February 9. A good day’s shooting was enjoyed as members came and went and we had the opportunity to welcome some new members. Many thanks to the range team, who again managed to cover everything on the day despite the unavoidable absence of some RCOs.
MoD Competency training and assessment for the Shooter Certification Card was also held and the Branch intends to continue to run this course on a regular basis at future range days as required. Members who wish to sit the test should note that costs have risen to £40. This is sadly unavoidable due to the introduction of a new process which requires the NRA to undertake issuance centrally.
The Branch AGM was held immediately after this. During the course of the AGM, the following officers and committee were elected:
Chairman: Derek Stimpson
Vice Chairman: Sean Woodger
Secretary: Neil Macfarlane
Treasurer: David Jennings
Committee: Tim Cooper, Adrian Dagger, Joe Dale, Daniel Francis, Glen Poland.
The Chairman’s and Treasurer’s reports were presented and accepted during the proceedings and Alexsys Vankovs was also subsequently co-opted and is welcomed onto the committee.

The Branch communicates almost exclusively through email as this helps keep costs down – and most members prefer this means of contact. So please can you check that you are still receiving our emails. Often after changing email addresses, one or two subscriptions can sometimes be omitted. Hopefully not the BDS!
