Uncle Barry Memorial Cup Weekend - 25/26th May 2013
« on: October 16, 2012, 10:12:11 AM »
We have very kindly been given the OK to hold the first 'Uncle Barry Memorial Cup' shooting competition over the weekend of the 25/26th of May 2013, at Woodfry's farm in Dorset.

That weekend has been chosen, as the 23rd of May is Barry's Birthday, and so what better than to hold his Memorial shoot on that weekend, and at his favourite permission.

How, or in what format, the competition will be held is yet to be decided....we have a few ideas in mind, but how we actually go about it will depend on how many entries we get to have the honour of being the first name on that magnificent trophy. We have also yet to decide on the cost of the entry fee, which will all go to Barry's favourite charity, Help for Heroes.

The weekend won't just be about the competition though, as I'm sure it will mirror the type of meets Barry used to hold, hunting, fishing, cooking, eating, drinking, fun and laughter.

Also, Barry's ashes will be placed, and a tree planted, in an informal 'ceremony' which will give those who were unable to attend Barry's funeral, another opportunity to say 'Goodbye' to him.
 
Camping will cost 5 per person per night, for which you will have access to clean running water, and a proper toilet facilities.

More details will be announced as and when they are decided.





So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE guys, get that date down in your diary NOW, as we are giving you all as much notice as possible to enable you make arrangements (work/holidays/spouses etc) so you can hopefully attend.

I would urge anyone who has ever attended one of Barry's meet-up weekends to make the effort, and show your respect to a man who himself made every effort to his fellow shooters, and to the sport of airgunning.

But even if you had never met Barry other than over the internet, if you enjoyed his company 'on-line' then what better way to thank him than to attend this meet-up in his memory.

Sorry to hear you can't make it Gary........or you could always let your missus go on her own!  ;) 8)


In a VERY kind gesture, a Planet Airgun member (who wishes to remain anonymous), has offered 50 and two bottles of whisky as prizes, so many thanks for doing that, Mr X.  ;)

I hope that will act an an extra enticement for people to make the effort and show their love and respect by attending Barry's Memorial Shoot.
