This event is normally held in late summer (the current Club Shooting Programme should be consulted for precise timing), and is intended to be as much a social function as a shooting event.
The main activities are a Junior Shoot held in the morning, followed by a BBQ and picnic at lunch time, and a fun shoot for all the family in the afternoon. Children’s amusements such as a ‘bouncy castle’ and a ‘ball pond’ are usually provided to entertain the younger participants from lunch time onwards.
All shooters must be accompanied by a Member, and Members are expected to assist with supervision and bring their own rifles and ammunition for their family and/or guests to use. This event is completely free to all Members, their families and/or guests, but participants must bring their own food for the BBQ and picnic.
