The club operates from mid-February to Mid-October each year with shoots taking place at fortnightly intervals on Sunday afternoons; start time 12:00 and finish 16:30 latest. Members are requested to arrive early (e.g. 11:30) to help setup, or stay late to help clear up.

Cartridges - Since 2012

Please note that it is the clubs intention to stop supplying cartridges to regular members at each shoot when the current stock has gone. Everybody needs to ensure that they bring enough cartridges to each shoot. Cartridges will be supplied for the Taster Days.
