Re: The Future

Something to think about Trevor and others envolved at the VRA which I think would be helpful... Firstly new membership applications need to be made easier... This whole/current system is not inclusive to new members... Currently new members have to find an "excepting club" once a new mem...

Re: The Future

Trevor, there has to be a happy medium re club membership and PMs. I try to balance my attendance at PMs etc, because I feel I need to remain committed to the Hamilton Rifle Club. As the Captain, I need to be there and accept my duties to promote and advance the club. This also includes planning, w...

Re: The Future

It’s seem like this thread is a repeat of a repeat of another similar thread, lots of ideas but nothing changes. Club membership is the most important and where the growth needs to be. Maybe, State Associations need to be more focussed on supporting clubs rather than maintaining state ranges etc. T...

Re: Area 419 Auto-Trickler Base

Got my Adam McDonald trickler and thrower a couple of months ago and very happy with it then, l got the Erea 419 trickler base, thrower housing, powder cup and glass hopper. Made most of my McDonald setup redundant bar motors and wiring. But a good setup anyway worth the money.
