Re: The Future

When I have spoken to different shooters over the last few years it seems it depends on where you are geographically as to your outlook on how things are travelling .. Speaking to shooters who shoot on say Belmont range things probably look good .. I was told a few years back that on some Saturdays ...

Re: The Future

I know the VRA is targeting Juniors very heavily. This would be the correct target group if the majority of the members were younger and had juniors. The fact is that the majority of the VRA members are much older. IMHO the target group to attract new members from is the 40-50 year old range. They ...

Re: The Future

Re: The Future

GSells I go to a club where they use MB sometimes and they place a barrier between the MB and the rest . It's lined with noise reducing foam . And they had a noise metre there a while back . It was much less noisy on the other side of it ... But the other issue we have is most PRS shooters don't wan...

Re: The Future

Re: my idea of this award night, I don’t think it should be the same evening as the presentations. Maybe the first night of the Queens. I agree that no one likes standing around and that’s why I think it should be a catered dinner. People can be eating a drinking while it’s sll going on. Make a nig...

Re: The Future

UL1700 you mention running around like a soldier and Fclass is about control ... If you are talking about PRS then you that's not what it's about .. Don't get me wrong I'm a Fclass shooter but when we start saying things like control and Precision and think we have the monopoly on this that is the t...

Let's hope your right but unfortunately I don't think so . In some clubs around the country this might be the case .. But nationally I don't believe this is whats happening . We are loosing TR shooters faster than they are joining ..

Re: The Future

Currently we aren't prepared to make the effort required to increase numbers in TR and F-Class, plus we aren't willing to change to what the market wants. To make matters worse the market is picky - many want things that are very hard to provide on our ranges. Very true Alan But if we are brutally ...

Re: The Future

I'm glad to hear Fclass growing but is it growing fast enough to replace the TR shooters who are also sl...
