Vale Noel Howland

It is with much sadness and regret that I advise of the passing of long-term member Noel Howland on Friday 21 August 2015. Noel will be sorely missed by all; on behalf of the VMLC and myself, our condolences to his family - may he rest in peace. Members are requested to attend the traditional Wall of Smoke tribute at our next shoot on the 19th of September 2015.

Jim Morraitis,
VMLC President.

To the members of VMLC,

my condolences for your loss.

Stuart John Doig
29 July 1944 ~ 4 January 2008
Stuart was a genuine friend to me, and I will always remember him at the range, shooting one of his beloved pistols, and scoring yet another 10X!  Everyone who knew Stuart will sorely miss him, our Sport, Club and Lives will be emptier.
Jim Morraitis,
VMLC President.

You’re never too old to shoot!
