    Default Cape Town air rifle club formed

    It gives me great pleasure and pride to announce the formation of the Cape Air Riles (CAR). At our founders meeting last night 14 July 05 we had 12 shooters attending, the committee was selected as follows.

    Chairman - Dean Huddlestone (warlock)
    Treasurer - Mehl Carelse (falcon)
    Technical Officer - Marius Van Schalkwyk (mcj)
    Secretary - Hilton Fleming (hilton)

    We all share a common passion to take the sport of air rifle shooting to new heights in the Western Cape even though some of us have only been involved in the sport for a short while. Obviously we cannot do this without the support of all Cape Town shooters and the support of our neighboring clubs in other provinces. If you have any comments or suggestions please feel free to share them with us.

    We will be posting club information and joining details on friendlyfire.co.za (thanks warlock) shortly.

    Now when will the rest of us hear about the ins and outs, or are you okes still finalizing things?

    We need to know stuff like Rules, Fees, etc. if we want to get peoplple to join (myself included).

    Remember I told you about the farm outside Kuilsriver where we might get our own range? Well I'm getting the final answer tonight. I suppose the committee will take it on them to make further deals and arangements if we get the nod.

    We are busy finalising. Please bear in mind that there is quite a lot of work to getting a club established properly. We should have the basics in place shortly.

    Will post the link to all club info soon ie within the next week or so.

    Don't worry, you will be the first to know! 8)

    mmm, I tried to find this other place to shoot at in somerset but couldnt find it... which reminded me about the club...

    do keep everyone posted about this, even though kuilsriver is a distance from somerset-west/stellenbosch, Im sure myself and others from this area will be in support.

    Its high time I get shooting now.
