OM takeover in the Great Britain Rifle Team

Charles Brooks (PR 1969-74) has been appointed as the Captain of the Great Britain Veterans Rifle Team and his Vice Captain is David Richards (B3 1972-76). They will be competing in the World Championships in Bloemfontein, South Africa in March next year. 

David’s brother, Bill (C1 1977-79), continues the success in the main GB Rifle Team, competing in the World Long Range Championships that take place on the same range a few days after the Veterans World Championships. He is the ‘Main Coach’, which means that he is effectively controlling the whole team during the match (which lasts 2 days and is shot at 700m, 800m and 900m) and has overall responsibility for deciding how much each of the shooters allows for wind displacement of the shots that they fire.
