Details will be 30 - 40 minutes long. Only one firer may be on each point at any time.

These times and details may change owing to the MOD possibly using the ETR on the day. This restricts access to the butts on the CGR as the access road falls within the ETR danger area.

There is some very important information that needs to be shared with shooters: 

1. All shooters must bring their ITSC membership card to the shoot 

2. All shooters must bring their valid NRA/ITSC Safe Shooter Card to the shoot 

3. All shooters must bring their FAC to the shoot – for those who have recently submitted variations, you will need to recover your FAC for the shoot 

4. Club guns will be available to use by FULL MEMBERS only – please liaise with Club Armourer Mick for use of club guns 

5. Do not be late please – briefings need to happen on schedule to allow the day to run to plan

6. Do not forget there are no catering facilities on site so bring lunch and drinks with you – it’ll be a very long day if you don’t. There is a McDonalds and Sainsbury very close by
7. Shooting is in the prone position. There are no benches, so bring shooting mats unless you have a fold up bench
8. Without wishing to put a hex on the day, don’t trust the British weather – bring waterproofs just in case
9. Targets are provided




The meeting point for shooters is directly inside the access road to the ranges, just off the main Thetford roundabout on the A11. These photos indicate the location - click on them to get a better view.

Do NOT block the roadway once in the range complex - this could be needed for MOD access. Organisers will meet up with shooters at this point at 0800 and direct drivers to the car parking areas.

Please do not be late as there is a very tight schedule.
