The OF Rifle Club reached new heights of achievement at Bisley on Saturday 23rd July, to win the “Parting Shot” and capped an already record breaking 2005 season. The “Parting Shot” competition is open to any team from anywhere in the world. In 2003 the OFs were delighted to come in fourth place, beating the USA senior team in the process. This year a strong Bisley OF contingent won first place, beating off a firm challenge from second placed Sussex HG by virtue of our excellent central “V” bull count.
The silver salver and gold medals will on display at the Suffolk Supper in October, along with all the trophies won by the team this season.
