303 Range Shoot, 2nd
A few weeks ago the 18 Bn Memorial Rifle Club hosted
a 303 range shoot for 206 ACU again this year. A great day was had by
all who attended. Results of the shoot can be found on the Achievement
Awards page. Further images can also be found on this
page. Cadets participated in all aspects of the shoot
including: firing, scoring, target marking. Cleaning the
weapons was not done this year because of another shoot being
conducted in the afternoon.
The Club very kindly hosted a
BBQ lunch back at the clubhouse where they also presented the
NB. Members of our unit
participate in this activity voluntarily and as civilians
only. This is not an AAC sponsored or approved activity.
