June & July shooting calendar

Monday 12th, 7-9pm.
Monday 19th, 7-9pm.
Sunday 25th, 2-6pm.
Monday 26th, 7-9pm.
There is an issue with Monday 5th, the sports hall will be set up for exams, so we will only be able to shoot outside, if the weather is ok. Will those wishing to shoot on that day let me know, otherwise I will cancel that date.

Update from John Gill:

Monday 5th June. The school is using the sports hall for exams so we will only be able to shoot outside and that if the weather permits, so keep an eye on the weather forecast.

Sunday 11th June. This may have to be our last Sunday shoot unless numbers pick up considerably more than the average of 4 this year, the club will not be able to sustain the losses so far incurred for much longer.


Sunday 9th, 2-6pm.
Monday 10th, 7-9pm.
Monday 17th, 7-9pm.
Sunday 23rd, 2-6pm.
Monday 24th, 7-9pm.
Monday 31st, 7-9pm.
The first week of July the sports hall will be set up for the end of term dance with a marquee and tables, so we may not be able to get the equipment to shoot outside. I will cancel that date unless folk desperately want to try to shoot outside.
