Central Bedfordshire Council, the landlord at Thorn Range, has decided to redevelop the range and surrounding green belt land for warehousing and residential use. The range lease expires in March 2017 and will not be renewed by the Council.

The Thorn 800 smallbore rifle match on the 18th September is therefore likely to be the last Open Meeting that will be held at Thorn.

Thorn Range will close permanently on the 19th March 2017, the lease expires on the 24th March and Central Bedfordshire Council require immediate possession.

However, the BSSA Committee have decided to hold a final OPEN event on the 19th March which will be an English Match (60 shots at 50m) with an optional 40 shot match also at 50m, either or both events may be entered.

To close the day and the Range there will be a Last Shot competition, this will consist of a single detail limited to 40 competitors. The course of fire will be 5 minutes to sight in followed by ONE shot to count at 100yds. Closest to the centre wins.
