Wet and overcast conditions were present for the competitors who came along to compete in the Universal Trench, DTL and Skeet programs.  6 Universal Trench / 7 DTL plus 2 Skeet squads made for a busy day of competition!

An apology must be given to the members of the MGC Skeet team who competed against the MCC team on November 9th. at the club.  It was reported that MCC had won this event and the trophy had been taken back.  This information was incorrect and in fact the MGC team have again kept the trophy.   Congratulations from all at the club.

A warm welcome to Jason Trotter who came along and joined the Club and then took part in the Skeet competition and thanks to Jim Turner for giving Jason some assistance before the comp started.  It was much appreciated.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Safe Storage of Firearms

When at a range, firearms not being used MUST be locked in your vehicle.  Police have started checking vehicles at clubs to see that shooters are not leaving guns in unlocked cars. Police will confiscate firearms that are not secured properly and there is a risk of losing your license as well as being charged.

Allegedly, recently police found some 27 cars unlocked at one club.  Random checks will continue to occur more and more frequently at Gun Clubs, so please be sure to lock your guns away when not in use, and store ammunition correctly.
