shoot on Ellenrod Farm Milnrow, with the kind permission of the Marshall family.
The club has the use of a field with a natural high backstop. It is only a short
walk from the farm to the field. The shoot does not start until 10.00hrs. But
we arrive from 09.00hrs. The charge you pay covers insurance, shells and clays.
Shooting is from 5 cages with a separate cage for tuition or competition. Launching
the clays, are 3 remote launchers and 2 mechanical launchers. The club owns
o/u and s/s shotguns, for anyone to freely use. We sometimes also run a speed
plate shoot at the same time. Shooting is in 2 halves; with a short break for
refreshments (you bring your own). All participants share the job of setting
up and putting away the shoots equipment. All new participants must go through
a safety talk, before the shoot. If you own a shotgun, your licence will be
required to verify its use.
We must now inform you, of Section
21 of the 1968 Firearms Act.
This says that if you have been incarcerated for between
6 months and 3 years. You cannot handle a firearm for 5 years. If you have
been incarcerated for greater than 3 years. You cannot handle a firearm at
Now what you see above is the clinical information on our Clay section. What
you see when you arrive though, is basically a group of fellow shooters enjoying
their selves and each other's company with lots of banter. Theyíre there for
a pleasant morning and good company. We are not a serious club (except on
safety) so expect a ribbing and a bit of humour. Itís not to say we donít
compete, we do. But itís not the be all and end all. Everyone chips in, to
help the meet run smoothly. This doesnít work at times though, which is par
for the course. Itís also well known the organisers are always open to bribery
and corruption, (usually butties and bikkies!). Please remember the meet is
run in a field and so the correct foot wear would be advised. If you wish
to join us please e-mail us for further details.
