  1. Kent continues to expand its shooting offer. Every expectation of an even better offer for next season! Now open for membership application for 2019/2020 at www.kentwildfowlers.co.uk We finished the season with a record 750 members, with applications already coming in. Apply now
  2. Open for membership again at www.kentwildfowlers.co.uk. Great value for money membership package We finished last season with a record 750 members, and already applications are coming thick and fast.

There is also the opportunity to upgrade to Full membership (shotguns), which some members take advantage of each year. www.kentwildfowlers.co.uk
  4. We have enhanced our Associate membership package to include a single day's shooting in with the price, under the Try Wildfowling scheme. Excellent package available as set out below.

  5. Whether members are BASC in their own right, is up to them. We don't know. All we do know is that we offer an excellent membership package, and the numbers speak for themselves. Yes, it does include LOSWA, and far from leaving the JV things have never been better. Very sunny indeed with new purchases and shooting rights on an annual basis.
  6. As of yesterday's Committee meeting KWCA total membership stands at 746. Doubt we'll get many more now, as renewals will be due on 1st April
  7. That's very true, and what's left is not currently likely to be available at an affordable price. This new area is not in Kent
  8. Going to view some potential new ground this weekend. Finger's crossed it is suitable and affordable!
  9. Not at all! All shooting is by permit only. We now have approaching 80 permits areas, plus 6 inland freshmarsh areas let out to club syndicates. Permits numbers are determined by the size of the land: i.e Swale (8 kilometres of coast on both banks) no limit on numbers and availability, allowing members to go when they want subject to a permit return each month); at the other extreme small island with only 2 permits. We have several of these large in essence unlimited areas. This works well, meaning members can invariable shoot when they want providing they are organised and book in advance. Most areas are running well below capacity, and with a handful of exceptions permit uptake to most areas runs at below 30%. It still surprises me how seldom most members actually go out! Controlling permit availability also means the quality of shooting is maximised

    Just got a new pair of Drake Refuge gloves - not cheap but hopefully worth the outlay
  11. We have just brought 2 new members on to the committee, and have a 3rd lined up. Increasingly the use of modern technology is making things more doable, and certainly quicker. We realised long ago ( and changed the Rules to allow it) that eventually we will have to employ at least an administrator. We already pay for external professional advice - accountants; lawyers; land agency, and will pay for what ever else comes along that we cannot do from amongst the membership. The sky's the limit as the demand for membership will only continue to grow as we continue to expand and diversify. We get so many people come to us with little or no shooting, and are therefore providing an important service in a busy and crowded part of the UK. As I said in a previous post: more members = more money = more shooting rights = more members .....
  12. Upbeat committee meeting yesterday evening. A further 24 new members in the last month - which is really excellent considering we are now well into the shooting season. Disaffiliation from BASC has had no detrimental effect at all, as we now offer a lower subscription rate and an excellent membership package. We have the club's record level of membership. Membership approaching 750, with more coming through. We also agreed some changes to the package for Associates which will come into effect immediately, and will make it even more attractive to potential new members. We have scrapped our Try Wildfowling scheme and incorporated that into the Associate membership package. Also offering facilities for non-shooters who work gundogs, again through the Associate membership package.
  13. More new airgun hunting members reported at committe this week, giving us a record number to date with more in the pipeline.
  14. Had some of the Browning Grand Passage coats on test. Their Grand Passage parka is a superb wildfowling coat and does not soak up water as some others do. It has superseded my Rivers West Kentdale parka as my favourite coat. Alan
