Woodstock Rifle & Pistol Club
Updated 20th June 2020
The committee have decided to make the following change to the amount of visits made to the club on Thursdays. Every member must now make a minimum of SIX SHOOTING VISITS per year to the club. This has been done due to people just turning up and not shooting, as we can not cover the cost of the range hireand for members who just want to keep their FAC. This is not financially fair on the club which pays to hire the range to shoot on it. It is your club, please use it. This is in imediate effect.
Many thanks to the Swallows Leisure Centre for providing a stair lift for our disabled shooters, which has already been used by a member.
Now we have this lift we have the facility for many others.
Very much appreciated to you all.

Dear NRA Member
Please see below the latest update posted on the NRA website and other social media platforms this afternoon:
FUTURE SHOOTING AT THE NSC
In anticipation of a Government announcement on 4 July 2020 we have been conducting a review of shooting on the NSC Ranges. Our aspiration is to revert to a Covid compliant Safe System of Shooting that closely resembles that which we all recognised as normal, prior to 23 March 2020, whilst preserving the reputation of the NSC and NRA.
Our review has included:
Existing Range Bookings: The majority of range bookings for July 2020 will be honoured by the NSC. Unfortunately it is not possible to do everything and you will be notified by e-mail if your booking is cancelled. If you wish to cancel your booking please do so on the online booking system.
Ranges that are open: We are working our way through a Road Map coordinated with Government Guidelines. The outdoor ranges are open and we will start to use the Markers Gallery on Short Siberia from 19 June 2020. We are planning to open a section of Century markers gallery and the Gallery Rifle Ranges on 4 July 2020. However, relaxation of the 2m social distancing is key to achieving this successfully.
Zero Range: The Zero range will be chargeable, at the range office, from 4 July 2020.
Club attendance at the NSC: The maximum number permitted to “gather” is currently set at 6 people. The RO is directly responsible for ensuring compliance. Multiple groups of 6 from a single club are welcome to attend the NSC.
Conduct of Shooting from 4 July Covid restrictions permitting:
Timings and range hire charges return to pre 23 March 2020 rates.
NSC staff will “step back” from the ranges. Revised arrival procedure to follow.
A section of the Century Markers gallery will open and we will commence fall backs on the LH side of the range when possible. The capacity for this activity will be dependent upon social distancing guidelines.
McQueens Castle available on Century only
The club would like to thank Swallows, especially Crag for all of the work that has been done so far in the projectle room. there is more to come, but the improvements so far have made a big difference.
Please see below email which has been sent to us by one of our members.
Like to thank Paul and the committee for getting the new stair lift fitted we tend to forget what the committee does for us in the back ground as a club and the help that the club/committee as given me has been much appreciated Many Thanks Doug
