Rotorua Branch N.Z.D.A. range report for May 2018.
Saturday 5th was C.N.I.G.C. Service rifle club shoot.
Sunday 6th was 300M target shoot, and we managed 2 details of 4, eight shooters which is great. As people are not shooting for scores there are none to report
Sunday 20th was the deer target shoot. I was busy doing inductions, but initially one of our newer members turned up and patiently waited till I had finished the inductions by which time two more had turned up to take part, they only did one run through each, but were keen to come again. As usual there are no scores.
This months program will run one week later due to Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Very soon the engineers will be getting the steelwork underway for the 50M range backstop. Many thanks to Mike Jamieson for being the kingpin behind this effort. Once steel work in place there will be a good deal of more straight forward timber work to get done to make the range functional.
Our regular working bee that would have been on the 9th of June will have to be held off due to bookings on that date. I will endeavor to get something under way later in month depending on weather.
Inductions, revision and full will continue to be available at club shoots.
