Carol Painting

It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Carol lost
her brave fight against cancer and died at home in the evening of
Sunday, 23rd June. Her sister, Sue was with her in her final days
and at the end.

She was one of a kind and will be remembered for her integrity, hard
work, loyalty, generosity and her life-long passion for rifle
shooting. Carol was a members of many Clubs including Pumas, Hampshire RA and of course the City.

Carol was helped greatly in the last few weeks of her life by the
Rowans Hospice at Home nurses. Should anyone wish to make a donation
in her memory please visit

Following her strict instructions there will be no funeral service.

Our sympathy goes to Carol’s family and friends.

Format of 2019 Combined Open Meeting .

After discussion it has been agreed to retain the existing planned dates (7th/8th Sept) and use the 5 Electronic Targets available. It has proved impossible to find an alternative date that did not clash with other major events or where range capacity was available.

The format of the Long Range Competitions for 2019 will therefore be:

  • Changed from 2 & 15 to 2 & 10. To ensure all competitors complete within timescale.
  • Introduce String Shooting. Still squad competitors 3 to a target on 2 details but introduce system were #1 Shoots, #2 Register & times, #3 sets up.  Then #3 shoots, #1 Register & Times, #2 sets up etc.
  • Introduce strict timing of shooting a string of 2 sighers and 10 to count of 16 minutes (This is in accordance to ICFRA rule 12 for string shooting at Long Range).
  • This would permit a maximum capacity of 30 competitors for the 2 Long range Competitions.

The view is that by introducing ‘string’ shooting the vast majority of issues raised in 2018 will be resolved.

City Combined Open meeting 2019.

Due to the ever increasing number of targets used by the European F Class Championships the number of targets available have been reducing year on year for the two Long Range Competitions held on the Sunday morning of the Open Meeting, held traditionally on the second weekend of September.

In 2018 the Long Range competitions were shot on 5 Electronic Targets and views from the competitors were somewhat mixed.

The indications for 2019 is that we will once again have use of all five electronic target on Stickledown on the Sunday.

As we move into 2019 we would be grateful for your views to assist the City Rifle Club in planning this years Open Meeting and a brief survey has been constructed and sent to all entrants over the last 3 years. A summary of the results will be published on the Club website  early in February.

Once we have the views these will be considered by the Council of the City RC and representatives of the Hertfordshire RA and RNTRC.
