Sporting Cup Competition

Dear Members
This Sunday the 11th August 2019 the club is holding the annual 20 bird Sporting Cup Competition at Pondock. The comp is open to any muzzleloader with breech loading black powder shotguns also welcome to be shot alongside the competition.
With Monday being the ‘Glorious 12th’ the plan is to have a ‘Fantastic 11th’ and put on a grouse style (as far as the equipment and landscape allows) competition. We will be on site from 9.30 with shooting planned to start at 10.30

Lets have a good turnout!

Kind regards
