WHATS HAPPENING IN NOVEMBER
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 19
BRING A FRIEND DAY
Do you remember the first time you fired a shotgun, do you remember the noise and the jolt your shoulder took. The feeling you had when your first clay was broken?
If you are like me, you were invited by a friend to come down to a range and have a shot, to try out this sport. On November 19, you will have the opportunity to repay that favour and bring a friend or family to have a go at Field and Game.
There is no competition on this day, it has been put down as a PRACTICE DAY so our Range Setters will be creating a mix of easier targets and the normal targets for that day.
If your friend is licenced, they are welcome and if unlicenced, then they will complete and sign a P650 form to be able to shoot under your supervision.
There will be some members on the day that will help with the safety talk.
Your club is growing stronger every month but we still need new blood to be able to continue into the future. I have been told that Field and Game Discipline is the fastest growing clay target sport now especially with women but we also need more Juniors, as they will be our future.
So, ask your shotty mates to come and if you know of someone that may enjoy this sport, please bring them on the day, they will have a great time.
LAST WEEKEND WE HELD THE LAST BIG BIRD FOR 2017, IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST YET WITH BRILLIANT TARGETS. AT THE PRESENTATION MANY MEMBERS ASKED US TO NOT TO CHANGE THE COURSE AND LEAVE IT FOR THE NEXT PRACTICE DAY.
SO, IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE UNFORTUNATE FEW THAT MISSED OUT ON SHOOTING THE BIG BIRD, THE TWO LAYOUTS WILL BE UNCHANGED AND YOU CAN TRY THEM OUT, OR IF YOU SHOT THE BIG BIRD AND WOULD LIKE TO PRACTICE THE TOUGH ONES, THIS IS A PERFECT TIME TO TRY AGAIN.
SO, NOVEMBER, WE HAVE THREE PRACTICE DAYS, FIRST TWO SATURDAYS AND THIRD SUNDAY. THE DATES ARE – 4TH, 11TH AND SUNDAY 19TH.
THIS IS ALSO A GREAT TIME TO INVITE YOUR MATES AND HAVE THEM TRY THIS AMAZING SPORT.

Have you ever wondered how good you really are at this, do you want to shoot the targets the big boys shoot? Then this is the comp for you! Lets not sugar coat it, you will be shooting all AA, A, B Grade targets, if a soft target appears, we blame the wind! We will have Grief Counselors at the grounds if you need them.
This is one of our most popular shoots, they are only on the 5th Sunday in the month, so only about 4-5 times a year. This is a MUST SHOOT comp!
SIDE BY SIDE AND SUB GAUGE COMPETITION

Starting at 9am will be our bi annual SIDE BY SIDE AND SUB GAUGE COMPETITION
This is a time to dust off that “Safe Queen” of a SIDE X SIDE shotty and bring her out to show us what she really can do.
100 Targets for her to feast on over two ranges and 32 throwers.
Some have suggested to wear period costume on the day.
If, you are like me and side by side and sub gauge challenged, the range will also be open to all comers for PRACTICE. So, why not create your own comp with your mates!
