Hornsby Range Closure (COVID-19)

Fellow Members,

As a result of new directives from Federal and NSW Governments, Hornsby range has been closed completely due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency. The governing body that manages Hornsby shooting complex (NSRTSCMA) has advised that all shooting activities for all Clubs (in all disciplines) shall cease from March 25, 2020 until further notice.

Roseville Rifle Club has subsequently ceased all shooting and any other activities until further notice.

Of course this crisis will pass, (hopefully in the not too distant future) and restrictions will be lifted, however until such time as we advise otherwise, members are asked to refrain from visiting the range. As further developments unfold, we will update you accordingly.

If any member has any queries, please feel free to touch base with myself or Phil Jacombs at any time.

I wish everyone all the very best during this difficult time, please stay well and keep safe…

Kind Regards,

Michael Cuda
Captain Roseville Rifle Club

MDRA ANZAC Day shoot

A warm, sunny afternoon, with a moderate S-W breeze, greeted a small band of Roseville shooters on ANZAC day at Malabar.

A moving remembrance ceremony was held, with the raising of the Australian and New Zealand flags and the Last Post (played by Evan Jones of Manly club).

Gary Faulkner, Bob Kozminski, Allan Humbert and Pat Jacombs then headed to the 600m mound for two 15 shot matches.

The breeze, while moderate, was deceptive and quite a few shooters fell to its fishtailing nature. During the first match, there were a number of delays due to target issues and some shooters had to move to different lanes to complete their matches. Gary chose not to shoot on the day.

Aggregate scores were as follows:

 Target Rifle, A-grade  F-Std, A-grade
 Bob Kozminski 166.14
 Pat Jacombs 143.13  Allan Humbert 161.5

Overall, the Roseville shooters found the conditions tougher than they liked.
