Miniature Rifle Club — To Hold First Shoot

Miniature Rifle Club

To Hold First Shoot

The Annual General Meeting of the VUC Miniature Rifle Club was held on Tuesday at 8 p.m. The following officers of the club were elected:
  • President: G. H. Peddie.
  • Chairman: Ted Bradstock.
  • Vice-Chairman: Jean Priest.
  • Secretary-Treasurer: Brian Nash.
  • Committee: John Ziman and Jeff Streeter.

The Constitution of the Club, based, as we were informed on good authority, on the best parts of the best constitutions of VUC clubs, was adopted with minor amendments.

Brian Nash reported that the club is able to get the use of a 25 yard range at Buckle Street by permission of the Army authorities and it is intended that the first shoot shall be held on Tuesday next, 12th June starting at 7.30 p.m.

Two teams are to be entered in the NZMRA teams competition and handicaps will be fixed on Tuesday night's shooting.

A Club trophy is to be competed for by members of the Club. There will be a goodly number of shoots during the year and eight will be for the trophy. These eight will be nominated on the notice announcing the shoot, and inorder to be in for the trophy it will be necessary to compete in five of these including a compulsory 100 yard shoot.

Shooting is a Tournament sport and anyone at all interested is urged to join the club and learn to handle a gun. There were several women at the meeting; it is hoped that more will avail themselves of this opportunity to demonstrate the inherent inferiority of the male. The club officers will show you how to hit the target so don't forget—Tuesday night is Shooting Club night at Buckle Street range.
