Branch Shooting Activities
Sebra Branch Shooting days
Registration starts from 07:30 in the summer and 08:30 in the winter. The range meeting will be at 08:00 in summer and 09:00 in winter. All entries will close 2 hours after registration starts. All shots will be required to attend the range meeting.
Our shooting days are held at two ranges:
Witbank Practical Shooting club in Witbank and Dwandzani in Balmoral.
We have two shooting days for seniors, one for juniors and one for bow hunters every month. The dates and times vary and is communicated to the members via email. The shooting activities can also be found on the SA hunters website as well as the Sebra branch website calendars.
Juniors have their own program that include air rifles and rim fire rifles.
We have several shotgun enthusiasts that makes for great entertainment. Additional shotguns are available at an additional cost for members who does not have their own to also participate.
For all the great shots among us, you can order your badge at our shooting days and collect them at member evenings or at our shooting days. The current cost for a printed certificate with your badge is R70 per badge. Payment must be made with your order.
As a fund raiser, the juniors sell cold drinks, coffee, food and other refreshments at our senior shooting events. Please support them, it is for a good cause.
One of our big attractions, is the handgun tables. We have a senior postal league shoot at the junior event as well as other shooting tables during the senior shooting days. This is great fun and helps you to fine-tune your hand gun skills.
Another attraction that is popular, is the big bore shooting table. Come join us to see what it is about.
Please ensure that you have the correct equipment for the different shooting disciplines. Allowed shooting aides are described in the shooting tables’ specifications.
