It’s that time of the year again where we operate our last AGM-to-AGM Competition the “Norman Bush Challenge Cup 50m Competition”.

This is the fifth year that we will be competing for the Norman Bush Challenge Cup, and this year’s competition is Called “Give the Air Gunners a Sporting Chance” and will operate over 2 days, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October 2020 between 09.00am and 12.00 noon to allow for social distancing of competitors on the range.

As you are aware, Norman’s great passion was shooting at targets at the 50m point, so to reflect his passion and to test his shooting colleague’s abilities, Barry and Bill have devised another 50m competition using three sets of targets which are shown in the attached poster.

Remember as Norman would say “there are no excuses for missing the target”. Although when testing this competition, I had several excuses…. You will see!! This year it is a VERY challenging competition.

Competitors will be allowed to use their own air weapons or the club’s of differing calibres and types for this competition (.177, .22, PCP, Springer, etc.).

3 challenging targets have been set this year, they are called Target 1 “O-Deer”, Target 2 “The Bunny Challenge”, and Target 3 “Master of the Flies”.

ALL targets will be shot from a bench-rest position (Bean bag, Bi-Pod etc) with the targets set at the 50m point.

24 shots in total for the competition

So, I call on all those who remember Norman, or all those that just want a shooting challenge and pay tribute to Norman to turn-up on the 24th and 25th October and shoot at his favourite distance of 50m.
