  1. Spalding DWA - New Members Day/Marsh Walk. Will be held on Sunday August 15th starting at 08:00am. All new members (and prospective) plus existing members that have not seen the marsh for a year or two are invited to attend. Departing from Shep Whites car park for a leisurely walk along the sea wall looking at areas of interest and access to shooting areas.

  2. Yes - subscription includes BASC membership. That is why we settled on £70 for renewing members. At least all members will be insured even if they cannot get to the marsh but do shoot locally to home. And of course anyone that joins more than one club can claim back the second BASC subscription.
  3. Notice to all Spalding DWA members. Due to the uncertain times through which we are living. The committee has decided to reduce the subscription fee for the 2020/21 to just £70.00. ONLY RENEWING members qualify (you must have been a member during the 2019/20 season) - new members will be expected to pay the full rate of £110. OXF

  8. Borrowed this from Guns on Pegs. Interesting read Here is the information received from Rishi Sunak MP, at 8pm this evening (24th April). Thank you to D’Arcy Wyvill of Constable Burton Estate for making contact with Rishi Sunak to get this response. Thank you for contacting me about the Natural England removing the 3 General Licenses tomorrow. Like you, I was shocked to hear this news and extremely disappointed. I fully appreciate and understand the considerable disruption this action causes to our agricultural community and rural economy and the livelihoods of many. As soo

  11. If memory serves - isn't there a silhouette of a Fox (crow/bird scarer) on the bank just to to right of this photo
  12. Strange thing happened the other day. I was happily shooting a few pigeons on a drilled field. There wasn't much activity - I had shot 10 and was considering packing up when out of the corner of my eye something moving. A Fox came charging out of the hedge about 5 yards to my left and headed straight for my pattern. It hadn't quiet gotten to my whirly before it was stopped by some No.6. Now i've shot several Foxes whilst out pigeon shooting over the years but this is the first time I have ever seen one actively hunt my pattern. Guess he had some hungry mouths to feed.
