New Outdoor Venue Required

Some bad new: This will be our last outdoor season at Houghall, we have been informed the land will be given over to grazing and we must vacate the site by the end of September 2016.
If any one knows of a suitable field or has contacts that could assist please could you discuss with someone from the committee.
I’ll keep you posted on developments.

Important Info re access to Houghall.

We have just been informed of the following:

“Please be aware that Burma Road will be closed to vehicle traffic from Monday 11 July. This is to allow the contractors to realign the road to flow into the new agriculture buildings. The closure will be in place for approx. 3 weeks.

Pedestrian access will still be available for movement from the main campus area to the farm/equine area.”

As such you will have to park your cars around the Conference Hall car park, and then carry your gear up to the fields.

Please note this time period covers our WA Competition weekend to be held on Sat & Sun 23rd and 24th July.

XMAS Night Out

Just in case you’ve not been able to make it to the Club recently – we are having our Xmas night out on Saturday the 12th December – it will be a meal at inshanghi in Durham at 6.30pm. A deposit of £5 is required ASAP if you want to go.

Affiliation Fees

Fees are now due £46.50 for Adults and £10 for Juniors – if you have not already paid, could you please arrange to do so.

Remember if we have not received payment before the end of Sept you will be unable to shoot.

Shooting Indoors

Please note we will be shooting indoors at Framwellgate School from the following dates:

First Tuesday indoors – Tuesday 8th September
First Saturday indoors – Saturday 17th October.

We will still be outside on Saturday’s at Houghall – until we move fully indoors on Saturday 17th October.
