College Shooting Team Gets OF Wisdom

Shooter - OF + College - April 2013
Half a dozen of our youngsters had barely seen a full-bore rifle, let along actually fired one when the masters of the OF Rifle Club got their hands on them.

By the end of the weekend the 12 keen young things were all on target (pretty much) and the odd decent score of above 30 (ex 35) was pinning the target.

OFGS Heroes End 24 Year Halford Hewitt Drought
David Turnbull, OFGS Secretary, writes with news to lift the spirits of OF Golfers everywhere: 
 
“On Thursday, 11th April we were drawn to play against Stonyhurst in the first round at Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club, Deal. For the second time since his captaincy of the team, Richard Graves arranged for the team to play some practice rounds at the beginning of March, and this definitely paid off.
 
For once, we were able to field our strongest team, so hopes of success were high. Pat Spraggs, our top player, made the long journey down from Scotland to join Richard Graves, Rob Atton, Gavin Cowell, Jonny Newton, Charlie Plunkett, Matt Stolls, Andrew Towler, Peter Watts and Johnny Wybar, with Mike Schneidau as reserve.

O.F. instrumental in apprehending 3 suicide bombers bent on wreaking carnage in UK cities.
MARCUS BEALE
Marcus Beale (M74-81) : We should acknowledge the recent stunning success of Marcus and his 450 officers in the West Midlands counter-terrorism unit in pre-empting a potentially catastrophic event in the twilight world of home-grown would-be suicide bombers.

Marcus joined the W. Midlands Police Force in June 2011 as Assistant Chief Constable with specific regional and national responsibility for counter-terrorism policy. He previously held the post of Chief Superintendent with Nottinghamshire Police and Assistant Chief Constable with the Staffordshire Force.

We are all indebted to the likes of Marcus for their indefatigable pursuit of those who aspire to commit mass murder on the streets of the UK. More power to his elbow as he continues to operate in this sensitive and vital field.
