It is.

So far they still haven't given the number of shooters allowed, is it 6 or 30? the national guidance isn't really clear.

I know Alpha1 has confirmation from Landmac/Catterick it's 30 there but we simply can not get any answer from the same Landmarc office section that covers the Otterburn Training Area. And Otterburn just don't answer anything!.

No problem Joe.
I have two confirmed bookings in August I put 30 shooters on each bid and it was accepted no issues.
The booking staff at Landmarc have been great super helpful. The Admin supervisor provided me with draft copies of Risk assessment forms and RASP replacement documentation to help secure my bids.
I had a conversation with the Major in charge of training and he confirmed the 30 shooters numbers and he was more than helpful.
I don't know what's going on at Otterburn but I am glad I don't shoot there.

As I said in the other thread Otterburn are the first area to apply the new MoD rules, all other areas will be doing so shortly.

Nic Couldrey of the NRA is meeting with the MoD to try and work out some sort of improved plan for it's deployment on July 29th.

What Rasp replacement documentation?, if this is the RSD (Range Safety Document) Landmarc sent us the template in September 2019 and then told us not to use it in October, just continue using our current Rasp.

They now want you to use the range safety document instead of the RASP at Catterick.

I wish they'd sort themselves out, this is supposed to be a national organisation, some sort of consistency would be nice!.

This weekend should be fun (not), I have to list the calbre and make of every firearm my club members want to use, with over 100 members that's going to be a very long list!

Do you think they will actually look at the list. Or take any notice of whats on it in the booking office. The Girls in my booking office are Civilians and have probably never seen a rifle never mind used one.
Unfortunatly we have to jump through the hoops if we want to use the ranges.
