Clay Shooting System

Please read through the below before booking

Book a place at least 24 hours before the shoot day by e-mail or ‘phone (much earlier is preferable!) Due to the changes in regulations, there are NO time slots – we start at 10:00 and end at around 13:00.

Of course If you are suffering from any symptoms of  COVID-19, you will be isolating and therefore will not be attending the shoot.

Please bring your own ammunition but if you haven‘t got any, please contact us as soon as possible to make arrangements. We have been able to get some more 12 Bore and 20 Bore cartridges, but please note that we can’t accept cash on the day. There are NO range fees to pay.

At all times on the farm you must maintain social distancing rules – at least 3 feet or more apart. (This does not apply to members of a household living together.)

There must be no borrowing of guns or other equipment. We are unable to guarantee the safety of any members against infection so it is the responsibility of all members to take steps to ensure their own safety by acting responsibly and in accordance with the rules and procedures. Please bring your own sanitisation equipments – IE: hand gel or wipes etc.

This is a great improvement. We can have a maximum of 30 people at the shoot at any one time. but we must minimise the risk of infection and the risks to the reputation of the sport and our club. However, with the lessons learnt from the previous two shoots, this one should be much improved!
PS: We believe the Plough will be open and again, if you want to come to a de-brief, you must let us know well in advance, as we have to book places – regardless of whether you are eating or not.

Please Note !

Please remember that new social distancing rules (3 feet + ) must be complied with, and we would ask that members bring their own form of sanitising hand gel or disinfectant, own hearing and eye protection. There must be no  borrowing or lending of guns or equipment.

Anyone who needs club ammunition must let us know what is required beforehand. Please bear in mind that we have not been able to buy any ammunition recently, so stocks are low. Payment for club ammunition can be done by BACS or cheque. There are NO range fees.

Salute to Ron Stoll

On Saturday 18th January we stopped all activity at Sealand in order to fire a five-volley salute to our (sadly missed) friend Ron Stoll.

Quite a number of members turned up specifically to pay their respects to Ron, but as we were limited to firing numbers by MoD rules, we had a squad of five – selected by lottery.

Ron, our friend

SEALAND A range on Saturday 8th, NOW MOVED to SUNDAY 9th September

We’ve just (13:00, 3/9/18) received an e-mail telling us that our shoot on Saturday 8th was accidentally double-booked by Nesscliff, and that both A & B ranges are now booked for military units.  I’ve expressed our disappointment at this late notice, and so we’ve been given A range the day after-  SUNDAY  9th September instead- the usual times prevailing.

We’re very sorry about this sudden change but sadly there is little we can do about it – we hope that the Sunday date will be a suitable alternative – particularly for those members who want to remain shooting at Sealand in 2019, and who have not yet put in sufficient attendances this year.
