We have arranged an evening at The Fennes Shooting School for both novices and experienced clay/game shooters – this is now an annual event in our calendar.
Tracey Riddington and Sarah Flight, two of England's foremost shots, having won many accolades and awards between them, will, with their team, provide expert full instruction for the beginners and novices, and for the more advanced we will be holding a small competition.
This will be a great opportunity to socialise with other members, bring colleagues and guests and to have a go at a sport perhaps you have never done before but have always wanted to try.
All equipment will be provided for the novice shooters and, for the experienced shooters, you will be welcome to bring your own equipment.
5:00 - Arrive. Tea/coffee & bacon rolls
5:15 - Safety briefing. Issue of cap, glasses and hearing protection.
5:30 - Commence shooting. Each person will shoot 50 clays and 50 cartridges. Scorecards for a light-hearted competition.
7:30 - Back to the clubhouse for the results.
8:00 - Depart.
Clay pigeon shooting, so called because the disc-shaped targets replace live pigeons, is an internationally recognised sport which has Olympic status. However, it is also a social, competitive and fun sport which is accessible to men and women of all ages and all abilities including the complete novice.
Clay pigeons, basically made from pitch and limestone dust, are thrown through the air at varying speeds and angles to represent the flight of birds; few things can compare with the excitement and satisfaction of hitting and demolishing your first target.
This is a great way to spend an evening whether you are a proficient shooter or a complete novice - just let us know and we will organise you into the right team.
