Preparing the shooting area at our temporary home, Old Pats

Our membership had reached 200 by 2013 and our practice sessions became so popular that we had to take a number of decisions to accommodate the extra load and to ensure we maintained the high standards we continue to keep. We introduce a booking system for some of our indoor venues and split the sessions to double the capacity. We were also able to establish a new evening venue at GL1 where we also support a session organised by the Recreation Centre. These changes were so successful that we were able to increase participation levels and accommodate more regular practice sessions!
