If your name does not appear above, please renew your membership for 2014 now. The good news is that, yet again, the Club and RAFSAA membership rates remain the same. The bad news is that the NRA is increasing its charge to the Club for every member that is not an Individual Member of the NRA.  That charge is shown on the Form but is only applicable only to those who are not members of the NRA. The Club’s bank details for those paying via e-banking are shown on the form. If you are unable to find the form that was attached to the first Newsletter, please let me know and I will send you another.

 

If you think you have renewed your membership but your name does not appear above, contact me immediately so that I can identify and rectify the problem.

 

RAF Friendly International Match – Wed  9 Jul – Action Now

RAFTRC Team to Jersey 19-22 Sep 2014 – Action Now

Now is the time to register your interest in touring with the Club to Jersey. This is an excellent introduction to Touring Team shooting and does not require any lengthy time away from work. Departure is normally on a Friday, shoot Sat and Sun mornings and return on the Monday with time to become acquainted with Jersey’s culture and sample its excellent cuisine at the formal and informal receptions. The hospitality of Jersey’s shooters is legendary and you will see many of them at the NRA National meeting in the summer. Some are also members of the RAFTRC.

 

To register your interest, email Chris Hockley, seejay.hockley@virgin.net . The dates for this year’s tour are 19-22 Sep inclusive. Grants help subsidise costs and serving personnel can also claim for travel using normal service travel procedures.

 

Travel Authority for Serving members

 

Serving members requiring authority to travel to shoot at Club fixtures should ensure they have renewed their membership this year and contact Neil Moxon, neil.moxon@virgin.net .

 

NRA Certificate of Competence issued by RAFTRC

 

If your Certificate of Competence is issued by the RAFTRC and requires renewal, ensure that your Club Membership has been renewed and contact the Club Chairman, Clive Smith, who controls the issue of cards. Clive’s email is: clive_smith1@hotmail.com  .

Shooting Taster Day – Fri 3 Oct

 

Chris Hockley is laying on what he is calling a Shooting Taster Day on Friday the 3rd Oct. This will have a similar programme of shooting and hosting to our main hospitality days but with some slight adjustments to keep some costs down a little. We will be using a bit of subsidy to entice genuine enquiries and guests to try out the day for next year. So the deal will be £99 per head for the full day including 3 course buffet lunch and shooting 4 or 5 disciplines throughout the day. The fee, however, will be refunded against a future booking plus there will be the award of one free place to a future booking in 2015 providing a minimum of 12 guests are booked and paid for. It is  hoped that this will attract new groups for next year. If we offer it free there is no incentive to turn up on the day.  For further details contact Chris Hockley seejay.hockley@virgin.net .
