The Novice Schools Challenge - video

The Novice Schools Challenge - video

Two school girls visit the Oxford Gun Company for some expert tuition from GB shot Steve Walton. The sixteen year-olds are interested in being part of the Novice Schools Challenge, which is for under-21s who have not shot before -- or not shot much. They get a day's tuition at the Oxford Gun Company's award-winning clay ground throughout August for just £109 including cartridges, clays and lunch. This film was first shown in Fieldsports Britain episode 138

SHOOTS TO GO AHEAD, FETE CANCELLED

SHOOTING GOING AHEAD

The Schools Challenge shooting events scheduled for Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th, and the Open Clay Shoot & Shooting Festival on Monday 7th, will GO AHEAD AS PLANNED on the Pull Court site with all the prizes that are advertised - so £6,000 worth to win!

Also, all the shooting company stands will still be there, so do come down and have a look!

BREDON MAY DAY FETE - CANCELLED

It is with regret that we have decided to cancel this year’s May Day Fete at Bredon school due to the wet weather we have experienced during the last few weeks. The Upton drive is flooded, along with the lower fields and the playing fields are too wet to use for visitor parking.

I do hope we will still see you all at Bredon for the shooting, and good luck to all our competitors!

If you are unsure on any of the above, please do ring The Oxford Gun Company on 01844 238 308.
