Diggle Anyone?

We’ve had a very kind offer made by one of our members –

“I can open up Diggle mid week for clays and or full bore shooting (inc slug) from 100-600yards. Covered firing (8 benches in each) points at 100/ 300 / 600 yards with club house refreshment facilities for brew making and food prep (BYO).

Cost to non Diggle members is £20 for the day (and if we use clays it’s £2 per 25 birds). {another member} and I are range officers at Diggle (NRA qual doesn’t count at the club) and we can open up on any week day. Diggle members shoot for free apart from clays. 

So if there is a likely dry spell in the full bore calendar at sealand we can have this as an option. Currently I have 21-25th Feb as a possible but could look to another day after 26 Jan if we wanted sooner. 

There are no look out duties needed, if we stayed at 100 yards no butts duties either. If you wanted to explore the possibility of a mid week shoot then we could look to get something factored in. Visibility / weather is a risk as always but with some luck it’s generally not an issue and forecasts are pretty accurate.

Basically bring your own targets / gun (upto and inc .338) (breech flag) eyes and ears and enjoy the day and we could perhaps look to have 15 places with some clays to finish for full NRA comp card holders and who are experienced shots.[ Another member} and I have had two good days up there this month.”

I’ve added a link below to the route from Sealand to Diggle below –
