The Spring Meeting is the Club’s annual open meeting held over the late May bank holiday weekend each year. It consists of a series of individual competitions spread over the three days with prizes available for each competition as well as various aggregates and the Grand Aggregate. It is regularly attended by 100 or more competitors, many of whom are top performing shooters hoping to get into England teams for the National and Mackinnon matches later in the year. Covering all distances and often with a mix of weather conditions, it provides a good test and is great preparation for the NRA’s main Imperial Meeting in July.

The competition is open to all and is available to both Target Rifle and F-class competitors. The typical program each year is as shown below, but please note that as there is no late May bank holiday in 2022 owing to the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the 2022 Spring Meeting will be held on Saturday and Sunday 21st and 22nd May.  Click on the following link to obtain the entry form for 2022 – Entry Form 2022 Spring MeetingNote entries close 7th April.
