Halloween fun shoot this Friday 30th October

Just a reminder that this Friday we’ll be having the Halloween fun shoot again.

If anyone would like to help out, by bringing some home-made or shop bought nibbles, any help with these and some decorations would be greatly appreciated on the night.

You will be shooting at the themed targets only as it is a fun night for everyone to meet up and have a bit of fun, so no serious shooting or proper faces allowed. Fancy dress welcome.

Viking Trophy 1st Leg

This Sunday is the 1st Leg of the Viking Trophy.

This will now be ran over the two sessions to give as many members the chance to take part as possible.

Remember only your first session score will count towards this shoot. So if you do shoot in both sessions (space permitting) only your morning score counts. If you do shoot on the morning and do not enter a score or just practice you will not be allowed to enter a score if you then shoot on the afternoon session. The records officer or a committee member will be attending both sessions to collect in the score sheets.

Carpets, carpets and yet more carpets

Hello All.

For a bit of fun we are going to start taking photos of some of the carpet rolling disasters, successes and avoidance. To start it off one of our beginners agreed to be the first to get his photo taken after his carpet rolling disaster (his second attempt was much better)
Remember to do your part in rolling up the carpets at the end of a shoot, whether you have shot or not, if everyone helps it’s so much easier. After all it’s every members club.
