The Spring Rifle Gathering. June 15th
« on: March 12, 2013, 06:35:49 PM »
Look like a fun event. Guys from BBS are orginizing it but its open to everybody. Ive booked my place as theres a van running from Cornwall.

The Spring Rifle Gathering is to be held on 15th June 2013


£20 including camping over the full weekend (3 nights if required)


Higham Fields Farm
Higham Fields Lane,
Higham on the hill,
CV13 6ET

The farm is 40 minutes away from both the collectors’ events the following day to be held at the Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham and the Melbourne Marksmen Collectors Fayre at Melbourne Derbyshire.


After a great deal of valuable and helpful assistance from Mr Jim Tyler (BTDT) I shall now be using the following system which greatly simplifies the time taken in administration.

1) Anybody who would like to attend simply sends a cheque for £20 made payable to M J Furniss (me) to my work address above.
On the back of the cheque write your username, Forum, nearest postal town and the word "camping" if doing so.

2) I hang on to the cheques until we reach the minimum break even point for portaloos insurance etc before banking them.

3) If there is insufficient interest in the event and we don’t reach our first break even point I will simply rip up your cheques in front of a witness (UKNeil being the obvious choice).

4) I will be scanning the cheques before banking them, so in the event of cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances (the weather) I can bank transfer your money back into your account.

5) As cheques come in I will post your username/Forum/Postal town up on here with your cheques status ---received/Banked.

As this idea was conceived by Baxterbasics and TonyL on here then out of respect to the BBS owners (J S Ramsbottom) no trade stands will be invited to attend.

I have local caterers booked for the day to sell Burgers, Hot dogs, Pork and stuffing cobs, Tea and Coffee etc.

I will not be organising a licensed bar on site but as your cars will be accessible inside the site I suggest you bring your own.

For those camping I shall be building a bonfire for the Saturday night.

The extent of targets and ranges will be dependant on interest/Money available --- as I have no idea how many people will attend I have allowed for a certain flexibility.

On arrival I shall be giving out permission letters to shoot and a username badge which will also double as a pass."

No idea im afraid, i only copied the original info from BB5 as theres a van going from Cornwall so thought it might be of interest to anyone close.
