BON ACCORD SMALL BORE CLUB
The Bon Accord Small Bore Club was established around 1912. It exists to provide a safe environment for the members to practice, train and compete at a level appropriate to each individual member.
The membership ranges from junior secondary school pupils starting out on their Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme programs, through local league competitors to a number of both Scottish and British International Team members.
Five of our members represented Scotland at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, winning 2 Gold and 1 Silver medal.
Prone rifle is the dominant discipline within the club, but members also compete in 3 Positional events, (prone, standing and kneeling) as well as Air Rifle and Air Pistol.
One thing all these sports have in common is that members can compete regardless of Gender or Age and many disciplines can be adapted to compensate for a variety of disabilities. The club has an active group of visually impaired members competing up to International level.
DENWOOD TARGET SHOOTING CENTRE
The Denwood Target Shooting Centre was opened in 1992. Its purpose is to provide a location for National Squad training, Inter-regional and County competitions as well as a local club facility.
- 50metre 3p range, 20 firing points
- 100yard /50 metre prone range, 20 firing points
- 25 yard indoor range, 8 firing points
(the indoor range can be used for 3p and adapted to 8 lane 10m air rifle / pistol)
An ongoing programme of improvement is in place which in recent years has seen the addition of a back wall, individual firing point partitions and wind calming netting on the 50m range to improve conditions for 3P competitors.
The complex is managed by the DENWOOD RANGE ASSOCIATION which represents ABERDEEN & DISTRICT SMALLBORE RIFLE ASSOCIATION, BON ACCORD SMALLBORE RIFLE CLUB and ABERDEEN UNIVERSITY RIFLE CLUB who are all founding members of the Association.
