These longer ranges are usually reserved for visits to Bisley. To shoot a muzzle loader at these distances and score well, was an added bonus.

Club hosted the Welsh Black Powder Championships over the weekend of 6th and 7th April. Spread over two days gave plenty of time for shooters who entered a number of different events to compete.
