As always, the club was well represented at the annual Phoenix Meeting held at Bisley over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. This is the largest meeting held in Britain for gallery rifle, pistols and other types of rifle and some very creditable scores were recorded in various disciplines by our shooters, in particular, John Munt winning the 50m muzzle loading pistol event!

 
In other events Pete Revell gained a second, Pete Biebrach gained a third and Mark Simpkins a fourth place. Bearing in mind there were literally hundreds of competitors at the meeting which was of national standard, our club members did well – many congratulations to them for representing our club so admirably.
