I’m pleased to say that it was a triumphant weekend for the RAF. Saturday was a match against the Oxford University Rifle Club. They had recently completed a week long training programme under the expert eye of our very own Mick Silver and were captained by Jonny Page who is on the English Lions programme. The experience and strength in depth of the RAFTRC team showed through though with the RAF Red team coming 1st on 936.074 and RAF Yellow coming 2nd on 924.064. The enthusiastic students placed 3rd with 887.060, pipping the RAF Blue team on 845.041. The match was the first outing for newcomer Matt Skulskyj (RAF) who shot consistently throughout the warm and sunny day under the tuition of Mike Jenvey. The two top scorers were Scott Glanville for the RAF on 195.015 and Jonny Page for the OURC on 195.020.

Sunday was a match against Sedbergh School, who stepped in to replace London City after they cancelled. For many of the young students (some as young as 13!) it was their first ever TR match but you wouldn’t have known it from their team drills and discipline on the firing point. With the school shooting with dedicated coaches and plotters and the RAF opting to shoot as pairs we undoubtedly lost a few points in the changeable conditions but again our greater experience proved too much for the opposition with the RAF finishing in 1st place on 1506.125 and Sedbergh 2nd on 1390.070. The top scorer for the RAF was Mick Silver on 194.020 whilst particular congratulations go to Sedbergh’s top scorer on the day, young Daisy, with a fantastic 191.015.

We’ve seen many new faces in the matches this weekend and made some great new friends and look forward to seeing some of these young shooters around the ranges in future!
