We provide an extensive calendar of events, with a range of shooting activities that caters for all levels - from beginners to international class shooters. Coaching sessions are also conducted at various times at no cost to members.

Please join us for the 59th MISC Anniversary Open on Saturday May 24 and Sunday May 25, 2014. We are expecting a great pistol and rifle competition to be contested by athletes from all around Victoria. We hope you will be enjoying our facilities, food services and the company of fellow shooters in between your matches.
The Rogers Trophy will be awarded to the shooter with the highest aggregate in 50m Pistol, 25m Rapid Fire Pistol and 25m Centre Fire Pistol.
History of the competition:
The MISC Anniversary Open is held on the weekend closest to May 23. The 23rd of May 1955 is an important date in Victoria's sporting shooters history as it was the date the Victorian Sporting Shooters Association Pistol Club was formed to give Victorian shooters an opportunity to participate in the pistol events at the Olympic Games. This date is commemorated each year in the MISC Anniversary Open.

His commitment was genuine and his time commitment was above and beyond that which club members normally show.
