Prone Rifle – Winter 2020-21 results

Finally an end to the longest ever Winter Season. After tiers, lockdown, restrictions and a couple of deadline postponements – the final deadline for scores to be received has passed, and the results are in.

Due to the pandemic, we only ran the Individual and Team of 3 leagues, and then only with a half course of fire. As expected, participation was well down, but still reasonable given the circumstances. We also welcomed Market Drayton as a new club to the Dorset rifle leagues.

In the end some people were still unable to shoot their cards, but there was still a decent competition in most divisions.

Congratulations to all the division winners! Medals will be issued in due course.

Prone rifle competition results – Summer 2021

This summer we only ran Individual competitions for 50m and 100yds, due to the uncertainty of the rate at which shooters would return to shooting after the lockdown. The previous season’s winter leagues were also still going on, and so there were still plenty of short range cards to be shot. Entries to the two competitions were rather low, but it is clear that some people were encouraged back to the range by the fact that there were cards to be shot.

To keep it simple, the competitions were shot in classes, with certificates being awarded to the winners of each class. No medals this year, as it was another very unusual year! Hopefully we’ll be back to normal in 2022.

The results of each competition are posted below. Congratulations to all the class winners – certificates will be sent out in the coming days.
