            As can be seen from the results above, some of the Islands Rifle Clubs, (specifically in the locations of Laxey, IoMSC Sandsiders (St Johns) and Kirk Michael), are finding it almost impossible to field two five man teams never mind three so, if there are any potential shooters or those who were previously involved and may be interested returning to this intriguing sport, we would be delighted to welcome new shooters. I am sure all kit can be provided. Help and guidance would be offered to new individuals and it may be worthwhile mentioning that we have a thirteen year old and many over the age of seventy - so age is not a barrier – give it a try, you never know, you may enjoy it !
