The London Mayors’ Association Small-Bore Rifle Competition
The final of London Mayors’ Association Small-Bore Rifle Competition, which was held on Saturday 8th September 2018 at Ham & Petersham Rifle Club.
The competition, which was started in 1906, is open to all London Boroughs and consists of teams of eight shooting three preliminary rounds, shot on the clubs’ home ranges. This year there were entries from nine London Boroughs, and the Boroughs with the five highest aggregate scores from these rounds going through to the final. Hillingdon had the best aggregate over the three rounds. Whilst the preliminary rounds are shot at 25 yards distance on normal paper targets on indoor ranges, the final is shot outdoors at 100 yards and consists of 24, 2 inch clay discs which have to be broken in the shortest possible time. The teams shoot against each other on a round robin basis with the team breaking all their discs first being awarded 2 points, the Borough with the highest number of points after all 10 rounds being declared the winner. In the event that neither team has broken all their discs after 3 minutes, the team that has broken the most is awarded the points.
Congratulations to all of the teams that took part, we await the final results!
