Participants: 14 MBA(FT), 1MBA(PT), 1Exchange, 2 PhD(NBS), 2(Guests)
Venue – Air Rifle Club, NTU

While exploring NTU during the induction period, I came across the NTU Air Rifle club and felt that the Sports Club should organize an air rifle shooting for the Nanyang MBA cohort.

The Sports Club co-chairs got in touch with the President of the NTU Air Rifle Club and set the date of 10th December 2014. As there was a lot of enthusiasm around this event, we went on to organize 3 sessions instead of 1 session.

Each session lasted for 1.5hrs. It began with safety instructions on handling pistols and rifles. Thereafter, participants got to try their hands at a pistol and a rifle. Keeping our hand steady to get a good shot with the pistol was a challenge for many of us. The sessions ended with a shooting competition. In the first leg, a map was used as the target and participants were supposed to target the specified area. Later on, candles replaced targets and participants were supposed to extinguish their target candle with their shot. Two points were awarded for shooting the candle and 5 points for extinguishing candle without moving it.

All in all it was great fun and a different experience. The Sports Club would like to thank the NTU Air Rifle Club for this fabulous event.
