DERBY OPEN 2017 was wonderfully hosted by the Derby Club, and our thanks go out to all their members who turned out for the three days of events which included the Home Countries Match featuring teams from Scotland, England and Wales.
The battle was closely fought but Scotland came out a near winner by three points in a overall 3299!
Norman acted as captain in the absence of Robert J Tonner who was unable to attend. In addition to his wonderful wins, Norman produced in 1500CF a personal best of 1495 with 118x that’s a new Scottish record for the STS.
The Bisley Home Countries match will be held in August and we look forward to yet another great event.
Here is an email from Jim:
The Derby Open 2017 was a record breaker with 105 competitors and over 850 events entered. It was fantastic to see 24 new faces, some completely new to the competition circuit.
I think you will agree that the prize table was excellent with numerous high value prizes to be chosen. This was mainly due to extraordinary support from the sponsors who supported the meeting. It is worth mentioning them by name as they deserve our thanks and having confidence in our sport. Please support them in return.

The Derby Open is a team effort and would not be possible without the 30 or so Range Crew who worked unbelievably hard over the weekend. Special thanks go to Team Smoothy, and Nog for their help And not forgetting the guys in Stats, and most importantly Pam & Mick on the BBQ.
We hope you all enjoyed everything, and the weather was OK too.
Jim and the Team
