About the Club
This club officially began in 1962. Its facilities consist of a clubhouse, two covered firing points for 100m and 200m shooting, plus a shotgun range with voice-operated trap.
The club is ostensibly a blackpowder and not a general shooting club. Members must own and shoot a blackpowder firearm at the club to be accepted and retain membership, and should participate in at least two blackpowder shoots per year. Working Bees are obligatory.
Members are not permitted to apply for a pistol licence through this club until twelve months of active membership (shooting) with a personal blackpowder longarm has been completed in the first instance, and thereafter.
