Cambridge University Revolver and Pistol Club (CURPC) is a small and friendly club. We focus on shooting air pistols and gallery rifle, but often participate in other disciplines thanks to our relationships with other shooting clubs in the country. .
Training sessions are every Wednesday 20:00-22:00 and Saturday 15:00-17:00, often with socials in a local pub or the Hawks' club afterwards. The club competes in a variety of competitions throughout the year ranging from local leagues and postal matches up to national competitions and our two Varsity matches against Oxford.
The club's ultimate aim is to be something its members enjoy. There is no minimum commitment - whether you want to compete internationally, or just want to do some shooting for fun, you will be very welcome in the club. We often break up the serious training with some fun exercises and competitions, including themed shoots throughout the year. It's never too late to join, so if you want to come down for a taster session, feel free to email the Committee.
Bedfordshire Open Air Gun Meeting
Five of us attended on Saturday 26th January. Captain Jonny Waite shot a below par 529 ex 600 on account of having been in a rowing race shortly before leaving for Bedford, but the others shot well. For all of them this was their first real match and none of them let the pressure affect their shooting. Stewart Forshaw was winning Class C at the end of Saturday with 512, closely followed by Djelal Osman with 492 and Sam Blayney with 482. Matilda also finished top of Class D with 484, despite suffering a penalty for putting an extra shot into one of her cards. In all it was a good shoot and a nice introduction for everyone to competitive air pistol shooting.
