Latest Update

We are enjoying the use of our electronic targets very much. I would like to say a big thanks to those members who make themselves available every week to help with the setting up of the targets and the packing away. Hornsby Rifle Club will be the Duty Club for the next 2 months so I encourage all members to attend the range and help out. We have had quite a few visitors over the past few months too , so thanks to those members who have helped with allowing these visitors to shoot and enjoy their time with us. Hopefully some of these will come back and become members of our wonderful club.

The members have also enjoyed our new air-conditioning over the summer months.

I hope to see all members very soon!

Latest news

We have had a good start to our new shooting year. The scores for last week have been updated. It was a glorious day but conditions got quite bad as the sun began to head towards the horizon around 3.30. Thanks to all our members who have put it a great effort to make our first two weeks of duty club a success. It really helps having everyone pull their weight. It would be great to see some more of our members come and shoot – we really miss you. This Sunday we have the prestigious Joso teams match at Hornsby on Sunday. This is a match between the North Shore District Rifle Association and other DRA’s. The NSDRA will be fielding 2 full bore and 1 f class teams and will be competing against MDRA and HVDRA , there will be 2 school teams also competing against each other. Come along and support the DRA and particularly Cathy (full bore) and Michael (F Class).

Doug King Masters Invitational Shoot 2012

On Sunday 24th June 2012 Hornsby Rifle Club held their annual Doug King Masters, Captains and KPC F Class shoot in conjuction with an invitation shoot. It was a cool but fine day and we were lucky to be able to borrow Roseville Rifle Club’s HEXTA Electronic targets for the shoot. The shoot was 2 sighters and 10 counting shots over distances of 600m, 500m and 300m and 12 shooters participated. The Doug King Master’s has been a prestigious event on our calender for over 34 years, for the top shooters in the club,  and this year it was won by our current club champion Cathy Burnitt with a score of 147.13 from Alan Ashworth on 146.16 and Geoff King on 145.11. The Captains Trophy is another of our long standing prestigious trophies and is competed for by our top B and C graders and  this year was won by Ian White with a score of 133.05. The Ku-Ring-Gai Pistol Club has very generously donated a trophy to HRC for our top F Class shooters and this was the inaugural year with the winner being Andrew Beavis with score of 175.14. Lunch was enjoyed by our members and guests following the competion of shooting.

Doug King Master Champions

The end of the Shooting Season

We are getting towards the end of our shooting year and things are getting very tight in the competition. Check out today’s scores and the current championship table and you will see what I mean. We have had a great year of very competitive shooting and the reduced target dimensions have really seen an impact on scores this year. We have 2 shooting days left to complete the year – 500m next week and then our last week will be 400m on the 26th May.

A reminder to all club members that subs for the coming year MUST be received by the Treasurer by the 26th May or you will be required to pay an extra $15. Also please come along for our end of year bbq on the 26th May. A few other important dates to remember are the Doug King Masters to be shot on Sunday 24th June and our AGM on Saturday 30th June.

Shooting on Hornsby on 31st March 2012

There were 14 shooters competing in our club competition at Hornsby today over 600 metres on what was a beautiful warm autumn day. The mirage however was quite tricky at times but generally a good shooting day with some interesting results. Cathy and Al were said to have had more luck with the dreaded “line cutters” than some of the other competitors – or so I am lead to believe! Our junior shooter Mitchell Burke came back very strongly in his second stage to score a very credible 45.02.

Next week shooting will be at 500 metres which will be Easter Saturday. Good luck to all who shoot next week and an enjoyable Easter to all.

News from HRC from 24th March 2012

Last Saturday the 24th March was the Arn Hammond 700m match. We were able to field all 3 of our teams – thanks to those members who made themselves available. The scores for our teams were as follows:-

Hornsby No 1 Phil Milan 70.11, Cathy Burnitt 70.6, Alan Ashwoth 69.8, Jeff Burnitt 69.7, Geoff King 69.6, John-Ross Mitchell 68.12

Hornsby No 2 Doug Rawson-Harris 69.3, Jim Thompson 67.5, Peter Allman 67.3, David Rodgers 62.6, Tim Robinson 62.1, John Allman 55.0

Hornsby F Class Standard Andrew Beavis 83.4, Ron 80.6, Michael Moss 78.0, Gavin Mitchell 75.2.

Our F Class Standard topped the range for the day – great shooting from the whole team. Our No 1 Full Bore team was a very close second to Roseville RC No 1 team on the day being pipped by 1 centre. It was a great effort from our No 1 team given we had a few dramas to contend with. There was also some outstanding shooting from our No 2 team shooters.

We all enjoyed afternoon tea supplied by our members who excelled themselves again.
