From Jason W who visited after finding about us on this website:

Hi Rick,
I just wanted to say thank you for the shoot on Saturday. It was an honour to shoot there and I learnt a lot from you.

I wanted to say that I was impressed with the facilities you have at Petone, humbled by the open friendliness of the very talented Petone members and quite taken with your obvious passion and vision for the club and the sport. A President with your capability, genuine enthusiasm and warm hearted generosity is a joy to behold. I wish you all well with your initiatives at Petone and hope you receive all the support you so thoroughly deserve.

It was an honour and a pleasure to meet you and all the Petone club members. Please pass on my gratitude. See you on a range soon :)

Warm Regards,
Jason W


A note from Hugh after a visit to the club

"I had a lot of fun yesterday afternoon! I went up the valley to Trentham Range to have a full-bore rifle shoot as a guest of Petone Rifle Club. Like the four other new visitors having a go on this afternoon, I found all of the club members who were shooting to be ever so friendly, helpful, patient and welcoming."
