With much of the general maintenance complete (few outstanding activities such as chain harrowing the shooting range, building up a few areas where ground has settled etc.) the ground is now ready for our winter programme. There are also a few more semi-mature trees to be planted around our perimeter.
Wheeled bosses can be easily moved from the covered shooting area for use on the target range (Covered shooting area has a shooting line and distance markers from that line) and that opens up the area for clout.
As part of the maintenance programme the field course was completely strimmed and bridges have been increased in width.
The weekday morning sessions will continue and various club shoots have been programmed in, including our first frostbite shoot.
Core venues booked weekly through to end of March 2017, Balcarras (Saturdays & Sundays), Shurdington (Tuesdays), GL1 – Gloucester Recreation Centre (Wednesdays) & Kingshill (Fridays). Birdlip as appropriate for beginners & Improvers (Selected Mondays & Fridays).
Satellite clubs at Balcarras (Fridays), GL1 (Wednesdays) & HSFG (Thursdays).
Venues have a rich selection of general practice sessions, general equipment workshops, psychology a fitness programmes, improvers programmes, club target days, social events, themed shoots, record status competitions, Level 1 Coaching Programmes and associated workshops, team competitions, open have-a-goes and the club winter league.
This all adds up to increasing levels of membership, increasing levels of participation/attendance for all levels of ability and even better value for money for our members!
