This shoot is when we remember any members who have sadly passed away and are no longer with us. In some respects it could be said that it is our Remembrance Day. Members take part in a competition that anybody can win, it does not matter how good a shot you are. The winner is presented with The Alan Hancock Trophy. Alan was a member who was a great character within the club. After he sadly passed away, his family asked that we do something to remember him by. As the years have passed we now look on this shoot as The Past Members Memorial Shoot. A day when we reflect on the good times and memories that we hold. Gone but not forgotten.
The Club holds fun shoots each year. Both Rifle and Pistol, plus a Past Members Shoot. The September Rifle shoot is our Annual Charity Shoot where we raise money for local causes.
