The day is run in conjunction with the RAF Target Rifle Club based at their attractive club house. We shoot five disciplines, among the favourites are long range rifle,  “cowboy” style pistol, and the moving target. The exact disciplines vary year to year. The day includes breakfast, lunch, tea and free bar in the evening.

There are team and individual prizes, including the Bakers' Cup and the Tim Bone Rose bowl. Rifle shooting is very much open to all, on an equal footing, and ladies and gentlemen compete equally. A fun day for all with a dedicated coach each.

The surplus generated is donated to RAF charities, part supporting a course for disadvantaged Air Cadets to improve life skills.
