What is Range Crew?
Range Crew is the collective name for the group of volunteers that provide vital support to most Action Weekends and other GR&P and TS events.
To be part of the team you just need to be willing to help look after the ranges – no qualification needed. Range Crew is a great way to experience competitions, either as a prospective competitor or to aid in developing knowledge towards a Range Officer qualification.
If you know of someone who is looking to get involved – invite them along!
Typically the various role and tasks include:
- Chief Range Officer – A qualified RO who can manage the safety and sometimes course of fire for the specific range
- Range Team– Can be a qualified RO, someone looking to undertake an RO course, or someone for enthusiasm for volunteering! Tasks can include scoring, helping to reface targets and checking rifles are clear
- Stats – Inputting of scores to produce results lists
- Butt Supervisors – For Fullbore competitions markers are required, with additional supervisors to inform and manage them through the competition specific shoots
