    This years Summer Sizzler will be somewhat different ;)

    Yes folks, the annual Summer Sizzler which has been running since around 2001 is off on holiday for this year only.

    Why pray you ask? Well, whilst trawling through the back of the club shed amongst empty tins of Milbro Slugs and John Bull waisted pellet boxes and a pair of very manky pink socks which at some time must have belonged to Gary C (no idea how they got there), we came across reference to the "Nockover Classic".

    Now this for those of you old enough, was the name of our old Easter time event and used to comprise of a HFT, FT and other discipline such as the running boar target, started way back when Jurassic World was a real and you could spot a few old dinosaurs prowling around. Indeed if you searched hard enough you might even have seen the odd "trusty Airsporter with self loading Tap in .22" making a very rare appearance whilst getting to grips with the Longbottomosaurus.

    Anyway I digress, the reason for this thread is that we ve decided to resurrect, for one year only, “THE†Nockover Classic in celebration of our 40th Birthday which is taking place this year. Yes, we've been here for quite a while now and thought we should suitably mark the occasion.

    We will be holding a medley shoot on the 27th September 2015 with a 30 shot HFT, a 20 shot Pistol HFT and our devious and dastardly TAG (Tactical Airgun) competition, the format we devised several years ago which makes normal HFT like popping balloons in a tub with a shotgun.

    The cost will be £10.00 for all 3 events and will include a souvenir enameled badge for all shooters.

    Refreshments will be available as usual from Mehmet.

    Initial details here http://barpc.org.uk/docs/40th Anniversary Medley.pdf

    More details to follow but get the date in your diaries, especially any of you who thought you had hung up your boingers and 4x mag scopes since you last attended. Former club members especially welcome.

    Hope to see you there:cool:
