You can register your interest in taking part in one or more of these competitions from the comfort of your own home by using the online booking system OR if you prefer the old-school way, come down to the club and sign your name on a bit of paper on the wall. Either way, you need to start thinking about your entries now.
Everybody hopes that the coming Winter season will signal the start of shooting getting back to ‘normal’, so if you want to do your bit to get things back the way they were, sign up and support the people and the leagues running the competitions.
The club has adopted a policy of supporting all our local leagues by entering at least one team (if possible) in all competitions.
