Hello to all Tayside Airgun Club members. I’m Derek Cochrane your new Chair. There will many of you who haven’t met me so I’ve included a photo – please introduce yourself if you see me in the barn or on the course and if you have any questions for me please drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org .
At the AGM in September, in answer to a question from the floor, I said my initial aims as Chair are to improve communication within the club, to improve safety and to ensure the club continues to serve the diverse uses the members make of the club – from competing in national rifle or pistol competitions through zeroing for hunting to plinking in the barn or on the course. There are many areas of improvement the committee is working on and I will provide updates as the year progresses.
Whatever use you make of the club I hope you have a successful, enjoyable and safe 2017/2018. If I can ask you to have one single thought when shooting it is this – Always assume your gun is loaded and handle it accordingly.
