Mound Covering

Today, 3 April 2016, heavy mat covers were placed on mounds at Cessnock Rifle Range for the 600, 700, 800 and 900 yard mounds.

Please be advised that the use of spikes on rests, front or back is now banned on the covered mounds.

Please review your gear so that you get whatever stable platform you want without punching holes into the mat.
We hope to complete the remainder of mounds, 500, 300, 200 and 100 yards within the first half of the year.

Club Presentation and Social for 2014

I am pleased to advise all of the members of Cessnock Rifle Club that the Club presentation and social ham shoot for 2014 will be held on Sunday 14 December 2014.

As mentioned above, the presentation lunch will be held at the range Club House on Sunday, 14 December 2014, commencing at 12.00 noon with lunch being served a little after 12.30pm.

Again, as per previous presentations, the Committee has arranged a fully catered lunch.

The Ham Shoot will be a single 15 shot match at 600 yards commencing at 9.00am

The costs this year are as follows:

  • $30 for full members, this includes shooting for that member and meals for them and their immediate family as well (Wife, Husband, Kids, etc…).
  • $15 for junior members, this includes shooting for that member and a meal.
  • $10 for non-shooting Guests of the club this includes a meal.

This has been a very successful year for the Club and we would urge all members to attend with their families to cap what has been a great year all round.

If you will not be able to make the range before 29th November please email your numbers for attendance to me at the club email address,, that address repeats to Captain, Secretary and Treasurer, so we will know for certain. It is important for catering that we get the numbers right! Once again please RSVP and get your money into Gary by the 29th of November 2014 as this will be the CUT OFF, once the final numbers are in it WILL NOT be amended and the catering will be FINALISED. So if you don’t make contact before these dates and get your name in there will be no extra food or ham to cater for you.

We certainly hope you will be able to attend and look forward to seeing you on the range.

Hon. Secretary
