Information on forthcoming events and results of past events as reported at the June meeting
Romford Rifle and Pistol Club
- National trials were held at the Appleton Rifle Club in Cheshire on Saturday 18 June 2016 where a team of 20 top shooters was picked to represent Great Britain in the Dewar International Match 2016 against the USA. Three members of Romford Rifle and Pistol Club were among the twenty picked for the team. To get one member picked would have been tremendous but to have three picked, for a national team of twenty, is outstanding and club members are proud that Geoff Webb, Chris Ingram and Dan Lake were selected. A fourth member, Phil Scanlan, unfortunately just missed the cut.
~The selected team went on to shoot their cards for the competition and the USA will be shooting their cards in July; the result will not be known until later in the year.
