The club hosts and runs a number of competitions throughout the year, in a wide range of disciplines. ‘Closed’ events, used to determine the Club Championships, are usually limited to FDPC members, although invited FAC holders may sometimes compete, but are excluded from the prizes.
‘Open’ competitions are just that – open to all club members, and other FAC holders. These tend to be the larger national events, such as the old 3-Gun, the Western Winner 1500, and other practical events that we run from time to time.
Each of the Club Championships events are matches in there own right, with prizes, and (if there are enough entries) in more that one division. There are also a number of club trophies, either associated to a single match, or awarded to an aggregate of two or more matches.
The Hendy Aggregate, (previously awarded to the overall cartridge pistol champion) is now an aggregate event for carbine matches. Of the 7 individual events nominated, the scores (as a percentage of the winners) are added together to give an overall percentage; some comps are ‘paired’, such as the T&P events.
Click on the list of current competitions to view the courses of fire (COF). As disciplines develop, and the popularity of events wax and wane, some matches may change. However, in most cases, we try to shoot events that reflect the popular national trends and use, wherever possible, the national rules, regulations, targets and courses of fire.
