The new website is symbolic of the changing world we will need to operate within, so it is dramatically different to our previous site!

Our field course is now ready for the launch of our summer mini league and that is planned to start during the first week of August and we have completed a promotional video to support the continued growth of our field course activities.
We are going to enter a number of teams in this year’s OnTarget Competition which will be done online later this summer.
Elliott’s our most supportive sponsor are well advanced with their new sorting facility which will vastly improve our environment. They are also providing us with materials, manpower and machinery to support two of our major projects preparing our facilities for extended outdoor winter shooting.
