Gauging interest...
« on: April 15, 2012, 02:48:18 PM »
Who would consider travelling up to my place for a shooting weekend next year?

It would likely be more hunting orientated but if everyone brought two or three targets with them we could get a decent plinking range set up.

I would suggest making three nights out of it, perhaps a Tues, Wed, Thurs night affair or more if that was desired?

Obviously this is at least 12months off but if anyone who would consider making the journey post and let me know then I'll see if it is viable.

If Uncle Barry is running a spring meet next year then that obviously takes precedence so if you can only make one make sure it's Uncle Barrys.

I quite like the idea.

I guess picking a month would be a start, school hols are probably best so that everyone can make it???

How's July with everyone? Or if not throw in your suggestions, if I think it is likely to happen I will start building more hides out of natural materials so they have settled in next year, we could buddy up if I build them big enough.
